Yesterday, good ol’ Joe Biden was on a roll, telling a predominantly African-American crowd that the Republicans want to put them “in chains”, and then telling the city of Danville, Virginia that they could lead the Democrats to victory in North Carolina.

It seems Uncle Joe is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Via the Weekly Standard:

In a speech today in Virginia, Vice President Joe Biden seemed to forget we’re in the 21st century.  ‘Folks, where’s it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?,” said Biden.

The Romney campaign responded to the gaffe over at the Standard:

UPDATE: Ryan Williams, a spokesman for the Romney campaign, responds: “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will ensure America leads the world in the 21st century by strengthening middle-class families and creating jobs. President Obama and Vice President Biden have taken our nation backward with failed policies that have resulted in higher unemployment, more debt, and a weaker economy. A campaign based on rage and divisiveness can’t hide the president’s failed record.”

To be fair, the Obama administration has set us back quite a bit, but a full 100 years?
