    Reality check for Vice President Joe Biden

    Houdini of the yap strikes again.
    The truth disappears again.

    KSLA News 12 Shreveport, Louisiana |Reality check for Vice President Joe Biden

    And That rhetorical question to Governor Jindal on the Early Show, was followed with this. "in Louisiana there's 400 people a day losing their jobs, what's he doing?" asks Biden.

    But that claim is wrong, if you look at the numbers from the Louisiana Workforce Commission. "In December, Louisiana was the only state in the nation besides the District of Columbia, according to the national press release that added employment over the month," ...not only is Louisiana not losing jobs. "The state gained 3,700 jobs for the seasonally adjusted employment," Granier said of the most recent figures.
    The Clintons are what happens...

    What a moron! This guy makes Bush look like a genius. You can't just make this stuff up folks, you just can't! I wonder if he has his own website? Anyone have the number?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Re: Reality check for Vice President Joe Biden

    If the state is gaining jobs (for seasonally adjusted employment), it doesn't mean that 400 people haven't just lost theirs. both could be true.

    zimmer, you haven't yet refuted Biden.

    LOL...

    Then the state's solution is obvious and working.
    They are creating more jobs than lost daily.


    NEWS UPDATE

    Biden seen wiping egg off face after speech.
    Concedes he has no idea what he is talking about.

    I guess that Governor Jindal forgot to read the Democrats' talking points that life is bad all over due to Bush's previous 8 years. No doubt that Bush could have done much better, however, I think that the messiah/biden team will eventually bring back fond memories of those great Bush years!
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    Re: Reality check for Vice President Joe Biden

    From the comments below the article:

    I'm sure it's obvious even to the nitwits in the White House that Biden needs to be gagged. Every time you see him get quoted on a public statement, he's got his foot in his mouth. Dan Quale hasn't got anything on this putz. At-a-boy Joe!
    While Joe Biden can say stupid things, I just don't see this one as being a huge deal. When 49/50 states are losing jobs (that's 98%), why would it not be reasonable for him to assume that Lousiana was undergoing the same thing?

    Nevertheless, nifty's right. I don't see how gaining jobs in a state means that NO ONE is losing their job.

    from your link:

    The unemployment rate in Louisiana has gone up, from 5.3 to 5.9.
    if you lose your job, and Biden says so, but two other people get jobs, you have still lost your job.

    [reality check for you] Biden was not wrong. and Lousiana is in a bad way, more than a good one.

    lol spin spin spin.

    Did you know that 20 million people lost their jobs under clinton? I mean, total employment went up, but that doesn't take into account all the people who retired or died, right?

    Yes, both statements could be true, but only one doesn't require circus-like contortions.

    pfffft. you've just made an oversimplified false analogy. the employment picture in LA is a more complex one. the unemployment rate has gone up. the population has grown. people have lost Jobs. people have gained them. Biden asked a legitimate question. it was never answered. the "spin" was the response, to paint him as wrong. he wasn't.

    More complex than the rest of the country? So complex that for the first time in the history of ever that numbers and math don't really mean what they mean? Or is it just complex now because you are defending Biden?

    the unemployment rate has gone up. the population has grown. people have lost Jobs. people have gained them. Biden asked a legitimate question. it was never answered. the "spin" was the response, to paint him as wrong. he wasn't.
    Wait, 3700 new jobs were created over the season and somehow 400 people a day losing their jobs isn't wrong anymore? Again, because it's Biden?
