Biden & Katie's Restaurant

One more major slip-up for Biden in the VP-debate.

Quote: "Look, all you have to do is go down Union Street with me in Wilmington or go to Katie’s Restaurant or walk into Home Depot with me where I spend a lot of time and you ask anybody in there whether or not the economic and foreign policy of this administration has made them better off in the last eight years."

The problem is that there is no Katie's Restaurant in Wilmington. There was one by that name that closed 15 years ago!

Also, some guy tried calling around to all the local Home Depot's around Wilmington and could not find anyone who said they had ever seen Biden there.

It appears that Biden is again just making stuff up as he goes along, but saying it with such conviction that most people think he must be right. This example is not about an important issue, but what it does is makes you start taking everything Biden says with a grain of salt (if you didn't already).
