So Biden wants to take you to Katie's Restaurant?

You've got to love this: Remember when Joe Biden talked about how "in touch" he is with Middle Class America in the VP debates? And how he could take you for a walk down Union Street in Wilmington, and visit Katie's Restaurant?

Read what was reported in today's Washington Post, passed on to Reading Between the Lines via

Pass this link on to your friends to read this example of what the Democrats consider VP material . . . and speaking of being qualified to be VP, what about Biden's story about Roosevelt dealing with the Stock Market Crash of 1929, addressing the nation by . . . going on TV . . . in 1929? While Hoover was still president?

Hey Joe, don't ya know Roosevelt was elected in 1932?

And these yahoos have the audacity to say Biden's ready for the White House?


In today’s Washington Post, Michael Dobbs, a.k.a. The Fact Checker, writes about a few more stumbles from the debate, including a couple items that we didn’t have in our story on Friday.

Dobbs, a former diplomatic reporter, says Sen. Joe Biden was wrong when he said the U.S. and France “kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon.” He was correct in saying that there was talk of sending NATO forces to the country in 2006.

Dobbs also cites Biden’s invitation to voters to “go down Union Street with me in Wilmington [Delaware] or go to ‘Katie’s Restaurant.’ ” That restaurant closed in the 1980s and has been replaced by a chain. The Wilmington News Journal wrote about the error, as well.
