"Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence, is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people ... this is how we can fix this. 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.'"What?
"Part of what being a leader does?" And I highly doubt that Roosevelt got on television after the crash of 1929 or the bottoming out in 1932, when there were neither home televisions nor was there an FDR presidency.
This is embarrassing.
