Skip to comments.Biden predicts economy will create up to 500,000 jobs a month soon (Flashback 4/23/10)

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."

Sure and gold will be discovered in the East River.
Fortunately for him, nobody cares what Joe says.
He’s a bonehead.
Soon?...As in AS SOON AS THEY ARE OUT OF OFFICE, SOON?......................
Yeah, but that’s just Biden who we expect to say just about anything.
I agree, after all it is “recovery summer”! </sarcasm>
If loose lips sink ships, Bite Me could sink the Titanic. I find anything coming out of this Admin. as not to be believed.
Biden..... Pshaw! Is there a Dim left that isn't Satan's butt boy?
If Joe makes a Super Bowl pick in late January I’m heavily covering the other team.
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.
If you have your head inserted in a place where the sun don’t shine, how do you still succeed in putting your foot in your mouth? Ain’t Joe just a wonder?
I think the next edition of Merriam Webster’s is going to get a new entry for “clueless”. Wait! Maybe it’s in the current edition.
And with falling unemployment we get a big bump to the food supply!
Cough, cough, hand over mouth - Bull$h!t !!!!!
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 don’t know Joe (or Jack or whatever it is).
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?
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............
True but people will have hope that the occupants of the WH will soon change.
Gotta agree with you ‘Hummmm’, nothing else needs saying.
Herbert Hoover: “Prosperity is just around the corner.”
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.
This pitiful fool is off his meds...again.
“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:
“Dont let the top-line number fool you. The employment report for May was discouraging. Although total nonfarm payrolls rose by 431,000 last monththe biggest monthly gain in a decadeit was heavily padded with the governments 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.
.......... has Joe been hangin’ out with Marion Berry ???
