Joe Biden's History Lesson

For a smart guy, Joe Biden sure makes a lot of Bushisms. Here's his latest one:

When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, "look, here's what happened."

Or, as Jesse Walker of Reason magazine puts it:

And if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, "Who is this guy? What happened to President Hoover?"

If what this article says is true, wouldn't the flip side also apply and no one would take Biden seriously if he said something worthwhile? And shouldn't the same logic have applied to Bush?
