Biden Forecasts 500K New Jobs A Month

From a believing Washington Post:

Biden forecasts growth of up to 500,000 new jobs a month

Biden forecasts hefty job growth

Vice President Biden predicted Friday that the U.S. economy would be adding up to 500,000 jobs each month "some time in the next couple of months."

Biden said he "got in trouble" for his prediction last month of job growth. "Even some in the White House said, ‘Hey, don’t get ahead of yourself,’ " he said at a Pennsylvania fundraiser, according to a pool report. "Well, I’m here to tell you, some time in the next couple of months, we’re going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month.

"We caught a lot of bad breaks on the way down," Biden added. "We’re going to catch a few good breaks because of good planning on the way up." …

Biden was in Pittsburgh for a brunch fundraiser on behalf of U.S. House candidate Mark Critz, who was an aide to Rep. John P. Murtha and is seeking to win the late lawmaker’s seat in a May special election.

Hence the expression, ‘dumb as a box of Bidens.’

    At best a half truth. How many are private sector as opposed to government jobs?

    Ever since Nerobama won the Nobel Peace Prize, Lunchbox Joe has been hankering after the Chamber of Commerce’s Junior Achievement Award.

    I repeat, “Biden couldn’t predict 5 oclock at four-thirty.”

    They probably know that between the census and the stimulus payola that there will be a lot of temporary jobs in the next few months. Also, jobs are added for kids in the summer, even in a down economy.

    Most observors think employment is at a trough. Corporate profits are pretty good, so there is likely to be some modest hiring before the mega-taxes kick in.

    And don’t forget those 16,000 IRS agents!!!

    This from a guy who heralded that (after 2 years of campaigning and being members of the US Senate before, after, and during the economic collapse) that “Things were much worse than we knew!”

    I’ll refer to my ouije’ board before I’ll believe any prediction of BS Biden.

      Considering it’s all taken care of by mother nature, I’ll blame an umbilical cord wrapped around his neck causing lack of oxygen to the brain.

    Sounds like another bribe to vote Democrat, and those that think the government gangsta committee will come through for them, if they vote democratic. Maybe a t-shirt screening business. “change means no coal”

    It’s sad to see what happens to the mind when hair plugs are transplanted upside down.
