Biden: Accomplishments ‘Hard To Explain’

From Bloomberg:

Biden, Obama’s Traveling Salesman, Makes Hard Sell to Voters

By Kate Andersen Brower – Oct 13, 2010

He’s flown 330,000 miles since taking office, the equivalent of circling the globe 13 times, much of it campaigning for Democrats and telling anxious voters that the $814 billion stimulus measure is working. Vice President Joe Biden knows it’s a hard sell.

“Less bad is never good enough,” Biden said in an interview on board Air Force Two on Oct. 8, the same day that Labor Department figures showed the jobless rate held steady at 9.6 percent in September, the last yardstick before voters in the Nov. 2 elections determine which party controls Congress.

Voters want to be told the truth,” Biden said on the way to Madison, Wisconsin, jacketless, kneeling against the back of an airplane seat and holding gold-trimmed aviator sunglasses.

“They want to know, ‘Tell me, man, do I have a shot?’” he said, his enthusiasm undeterred by a cold.

Does anyone know what Mr. Biden is talking about? Who is asking if they "have a shot"? What does that even mean?

If Mr. Biden isn’t careful, he is going to make a joke of ‘traveling salesmen.’

With unemployment topping 9.5 percent for 14 straight months, Biden is having difficulty trumpeting the 3.3 million jobs created or saved by the White House’s economic stimulus…

Perhaps because it is a laughably blatant lie.

“It’s just really hard to convince people that when there weren’t, up until the first of the year, when there weren’t net new jobs it’s awful hard to say, ‘It’s working,’” he said at the end of a three-state campaign swing Oct. 7-8 for four Democratic candidates in Wisconsin, Missouri, and Washington. “It’s counterintuitive.”

And that’s putting it nicely. Most people object to being lied to. It’s insulting.

Biden sent Obama a 25-page report released Oct. 1 that said the stimulus has created or preserved 3.3 million jobs and is on pace to create the intended 3.5 million jobs. The money was obligated quickly and with little fraud, the report said…

Again, it’s clear that the man is a shameless liar.

Biden, in the interview, called Republican criticism “phony” and said the Labor Department report “shows how wrong they were” in limiting assistance for states. He said more jobs would have been created if Republicans had approved an additional $150 billion originally in the stimulus and the creation of an infrastructure bank.

Yes, that $150 billion on top of the more than one trillion dollars already squandered on the various ‘stimu-lies’ would have made all the difference.

Democrats aren’t running on the administration’s accomplishments like health-care and financial-regulatory overhaul and the stimulus because “it’s just too hard to explain,” Biden said

Just like veritas is often found in vino, there is also truth to be found even in babbling stupidity.

    On the contrary, Mr. Bite Me…this administrations agenda is far too EASY to explain. That’s why dems are facing a very big problem in November.

    “It’s counterintuitive.”

    A new record.

    Liberalism explained in just TWO words.

    But aside from that, Mr. Biden demonstrates once again that Mikey will say or do anything to retain his position as a Ruling Ass.

  3. Tater Salad says:

    The following article is NOT well known and Barack Obama is a member of both organizations. Not hard to explain!
