VP Biden Caught in Another Blooper

Only the most committed liberal or a totally ignorant person would believe much of anything that VP Joe Biden has to say. After all, for decades he has been considered the ‘gaff-master’ on the Washington scene. This man, who wanted to divide Iraq into three countries and made 17 documented errors of fact during his debate with Sarah Palin, is a complete fool.

Biden Tells CNN: Economy has 'hit bottom' and is coming back

October 30, 2009 CNN

WASHINGTON (CNN) – In an exclusive interview with CNN, Vice President Joe Biden said Friday he believes the economy has "hit bottom" and he's confident the stimulus package is helping to put the economy back on track.

"Oh I'm confident we've hit bottom," Biden said. "The question is look, we're not going to be satisfied, Ed, until I'm able to sit in front of you and say, 'Look, this month we grew jobs.'"

The vice president acknowledged that with unemployment at 9.8 percent across the country right now, it is hard to convince the American people the nation is coming of out of recession. Biden made his comments on a day in which he released a new report claiming the stimulus has created or saved somewhere between 640,000 and one million jobs.

"The net effect is growing jobs," said Biden, though he quickly acknowledged: "It doesn't say a lot to people to say, 'You know there would have been a million more ... jobs lost but for this [stimulus]. My grandpop used to have an expression... We lived in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

He said when the guy in Dixon City, a suburb, is out of work it's an economic slowdown. When your brother-in-law's out of work, it's a recession. When you're out of work, it's a depression. And it's a depression for millions of people."

Biden added there's a "necessary disconnect when people are out of a job," but he asserted that the recent report showing that the Gross Domestic Product has grown 3.5 percent in the last three months shows the recovery plan is working.

"Every expert out there has said... - and you know this - is that in a large part is attributable to the stimulus package," said Biden. "Put another way, without the stimulus package, the economy wouldn't have grown this last quarter."

Even the liberal CBS network couldn't swallow this one:
CBS Says White House Is Fudging Stimulus Jobs Numbers

October 30, 2009 NewsBusters (Excerpt)

"When Katie Couric and the folks at CBS start doubting what the Administration says about how effective February's economic stimulus package was, you know President Obama is in trouble.

Consider that on Thursday's CBS "Evening News," Chip Reid began a segment with the following startling statement about a jobs report card to be released by the White House Friday:

Well, Katie, that report is going to claim that the stimulus has already created or saved hundreds of thousands of jobs, but if the administration`s first effort at counting stimulus jobs is any guide, tomorrow`s numbers could be hard to believe."

Joe Biden never ceases to amaze me! What the heck is this fool doing in there? He reminds me of one of the King's Gestures in Medieval times, a degenerate moron who makes people laugh. It's really beyond my comprehension how the idiots in these feminists groups, plus the Republicans in Sarah Palin's own party, can throw her under the bus knowing all her accomplishments in Alaska. Which brings me to Joe Biden. Exactly, what has he ever done, besides make a fool out of himself? What has Barack Obama done? I'm hoping that the both of them go down the toilet before they do any more harm to this country. I want them all to fail. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, and that moron VP of his should all fail. When they all go down, our country will rise again. Our founding fathers were not stupid! We are on the brink of another revolution in this country.

Victor Davis Hanson had the best take on Biden I've ever heard:

"Biden's Law: If one makes enough gaffes, they soon reach a point that none of them matter."
