Biden predicts economy will create up to 500,000 jobs a month soon (Flashback 4/23/10)
washington post ^ | April 23, 2010 | Garance Franke-Ruta and Frank Ahrens

Posted on 08/06/2010 9:57:55 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

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

"All in all we're going to be creating somewhere between 100[,000] and 200,000 jobs next month, I predict," Biden said, according to a pool report, adding that he "got in trouble" for a job growth prediction last month. "Even some in the White House said, 'Hey, don't get ahead of yourself.' 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."

One of the only things that makes me smile as I watch my country commit economic socialistic suicide is the ramblings of idiot Joe Biden. God, I love this guy.

He might be the dumbest VP we have ever had.

Maybe he means December if they take a lickin. He may be right. The best way to restart the economy is to toss all Democrats overboard in November. The recovery will start in December.

Biden is probably right. 500,000 of the dependent class turning out to vote in return for a pack of smokes is a job created by the definition of this administration, isn’t it?

The recovery will start in December.

I doubt it. Their policies will be totally in effect for months, even after the new Congress is sworn in. Then they will blame the Republicans for all the mischief that they, themselves, created............

Biden is such a clown.

Employers have no incentive to hire more workers, make big equipment purchases, or expand their operations and businesses - you know why?

Because Obama’s socialist administration is very much anti-business. Businesses are faced with higher taxes, increased government regulations, and a lot of uncertainty from Obama and his cronies.

Obama looks more like Commodus every day, truly a man-child emperor with no clothes.

Obama and his wife stay busy going to taxpayer-funded, expensive White House parties, flying in new chefs to cook their meals, hamming it up with celebrities, constantly taking vacations, playing golf, and honoring themselves - this is truly disgusting to all those who love America.

As Maximus told the corrupt Commodus - “Your time of honoring yourself will soon be at an end.”

If BS was a penny a pound, Biden would be the richest man in the world. The Alpha Hotel doesn’t realize that it is the small businesses that are disappearing. Its the small business that make up our economy. Census jobs were only temporary, some of the employees only worked a day. As I type, the offices are packing up and closing down operations.

“All in all we’re going to be creating somewhere between 100[,000] and 200,000 jobs next month, I predict,” Biden said,”

Evidently this fool didn’t even realize that Census planned to hire nearly 400,000 people in May. Moreover, recall that May was the month where Census hiring hid the anemic growth in private sector jobs:

“Don’t let the top-line number fool you. The employment report for May was discouraging. Although total nonfarm payrolls rose by 431,000 last month—the biggest monthly gain in a decade—it was heavily padded with the government’s temporary hiring of Census workers. Stripping out the government factor reveals a tepid rise in private-sector nonfarm payrolls of just 41,000, a dramatic fall from April’s 218,000 gain in private-sector jobs. In other words, job creation in real economy is struggling…again. In fact, it looks like it hit a wall in May.”

Joe predicts a boom and we actually get a bust!

“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.”

Last time I checked “couple” meant 2. It’s been 3 months. This too I consider an epic fail as a prediction. He could have said “before the end of the year” and STILL been wrong.

He meant LOSE 500,000 jobs a month.

They always give us the bad news first so we won’t be surprised
when it happens.
