Vice President Biden today piled on another gaffe, remarking during an appearance in Blacksburg, Virginia that he expects the United States to “lead the world in the 20th century in making an automobile.”
Here’s the video:
But this is not the first time Biden forgot what century he is living in. He did it in February 2010, arguing that the United States would also lead the world economically in the 20th century
Let’s at least acknowledge that, since it was 2010, Biden was at least less far off than he is in 2012.
Notably, the Associated Press initially reported that Biden had said “21st Century.” But with Biden having Tuesday suggested that Mitt Romney wanted to put African Americans back in chains, the press is now less likely to let the vice president get away with the types of gaffes Republicans like Sarah Palin and George W. Bush were routinely called on.
