Skip to comments.Biden: We Can't Recover All the Jobs Lost
Posted on 06/26/2010 8:02:51 AM PDT by Zakeet
Vice President Joe Biden gave a stark assessment of the economy today, telling an audience of supporters, "there's no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession."
Appearing at a fundraiser with Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) in Milwaukee, the vice president remarked that by the time he and President Obama took office in 2008, the gross domestic product had shrunk and hundreds of thousands of jobs had been lost.
"We inherited a godawful mess," he said, adding there was "no way to regenerate $3 trillion that was lost. Not misplaced, lost."

We have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt Joe Biden, July 16, 2009
Reagan could have!
I though based on the POTUS forecasts in early 2009 we should of been back to heading towards full employment by now.
But spend, spend and further spend under the guise of “jobs” huh, Biden idiot?
It's still Bush's fault.
Maybe he should promote dividing America into three distinct ethnic groups...
Joe Biden...Breathtakingly Stupid.
We elected a godawful bloviator.
The political decisions in this WH are made by Bambi, his wife, Jarrett, Rahm, Axelrod and Plouffe. If in 2012 Bambi is looking as weak as he is now I believe there is a strong possibility that Biden will be dropped from the ticket (just like Rockefeller was dropped by Ford in favor of Dole) and replaced by Hillary (if she doesn’t challenge Bambi for the Dem nod) or someone like Mark Warner of Virginia.
Michael Steele, here’s your national campaign commercial.
Wow that sounds a lot like Carter’s famous Malaise speech where he proclaimed America’s greatest could not be restored. (Translation.... until he was out of office and real leader took over).
Biden’s Translation....the jobs are lost for good as long as the democRATS remain in charge.
Yeah the stimulus package was supposed to keep unemployment below 8 percent. It has made the economy worse, as will cap and trade and and socilized medicine. Obama and Biden have taken a bad situation and are turning it into a depression.
Damn! 'PLUGS' Biden read a book on demographics????
So in other words, you lied! (and your Boss did too)
God save us from the self-loathing and lack of spirit that these cretins have.
So you inherited a mess with “hundreds of thousands” of jobs lost now its “8 million” never to return. Seems like you all, by your own admission, have made it substantially worse. Obama/Biden Hope sure isn’t what they promised.
It's still Bush's fault.
Well, in fact a large part of the mess we are in can be squarely blamed on the former Bush administration and Democrat controlled Congress.
That being said, this three ring clown act called the Obama administration and Congress is in charge now and have all the power and authority to fix the economy, which they are incapable of doing since they are petulant children
Like the hospital administrator telling you that your life can’t be saved while keeping the surgeon out of the OR. These people have got to go.
