Yahoo! asked Vice President Joe Biden Thursday to give some good advice for the unemployed. He provided a list of recent improvements to the economy, while expressing sympathy for those struggling to get by without a regular income.
"So the message is 'hang in there?'" Yahoo!'s Anna Robertson asked.
"The message is hang in there," he repeated.
Republicans gained traction in last year's election by asking "where are the jobs?" and highlighting Americans' dissatisfaction with the economy. GOP Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin also made the jobs question as the focus of his State of the Union response this week.
But in Thursday's interview, Biden stressed that the recovery of the labor economy would be slow and gradual--even though the GOP has harnessed widespread impatience with that view for political gain.
"Things are coming back," Biden said, after noting that the unemployment rate is now dropping "minimally," businesses are investing, banks are lending, and companies are gaining confidence.

When does the new Unemployment extension run out?
Hang in there.
Is that better than slitting your wrists? What a jerk.
Hang in there?
Go POUND SAND you MORON!
and what do I tell my mortgage company BiteMe? I just cashed out another chunk of retirement to pay the bill for the next year while I keep looking.
Had a guy selling AT&T services come by yesterday and in the course of the conversation it turns out he was out of work 11 months, has a house he can’t sell, wife in another state, living on his sister’s couch etc.
Hang in there my ass.
Is that better than slitting your wrists? What a jerk. The folks during the Great Depression hung in there for almost 12 years.
“Stand up, Chuck!”
“Hang in there, Jack!”
Oh, and insult to injury, he is a third party contractor so you know he has no health care just like me.
Hang in there.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
What an asshole.
Mr. Biden will I ever be able to get a job, pay off my student loans, or start a family?
“Hang in there!????”
Better yet, I think I’ll take to the polls in two years to vote you and 0 out of office, you dolt!
He also said that the unemployed should enjoy some cake while they hang in there.
Earth to V.P. BiteMe, many of the unemployed HAVE been hanging in there since 2009, so what do you want. You spent a $ trillion $ dollars on a failed stimulus, supposedly for “infrastructure shovel ready projects” and the pretender in chief asked for STILL more during the SOTU. So when is it enough???
Winning The Future?
Yet, as a conservative, if I said “hang in there, Joe Biden” it would be considered a threat.
Joe Biden - Professional Fool.
Hang in there — we’ll soon be extending the unemployment to 5 years.....
Hang in there cause.....I don’t have a clue. You Dems wanted FDR, you got him!
