SHOCKER: Joe Biden's Grandfather Was Actually RONALD REAGAN!

Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit...

Or so you'd think, judging from the rambling speech
Plugs delivered earlier today:

"The unemployed are in real trouble," Biden said. 

"My grandpa used to say, from Scranton, he’d say, ‘Joe, when the guy in Dunmore - the next town over – when the guy in Dunmore is out of work, it’s an economic slowdown. When your brother-in-law is out of work, it’s a recession. When you’re out of work, it’s a depression

It’s a depression for millions and millions of Americans." 

But the last bit is particularly curious since it sounds an awful lot like something President Ronald Reagan said: "A recession is when your neighbor loses his job," Reagan said during the 1980 presidential campaign. 

"A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his..."

I've heard that sometimes brains and class
can skip a generation or two...
