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.

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.”
