Vice President Joe Biden predicted Friday the U.S. economy would create 100,000 to 200,000 jobs next month, with a rise to 250,000 to 500,000 jobs per month soon afterward, according to a press pool report.

"We caught a lot of bad breaks on the way down. We're going to catch a few good breaks because of good planning on the way up," Biden told a political fundraiser in Pittsburgh, the pool report said, as he hailed the Obama administration's recovery efforts.

Other than the controversial prediction itself, the timing is interesting. From what I know about when BLS does the survey for the monthly payroll and household surveys, they should have just done that survey. That means the Vice President could have been given a sneak peek as to what they found during the survey week.

Well, time will tell. Biden can be a bit of a idiot savant on rare occasions, but he’s usually just an idiot.

"U.S. employers created 162,000 jobs in March."

They were all new IRS agents to enforce Obamacare.

Biden will be right about creating 500,000 jobs a month. Unfortunately, it won’t happen till Obama cuts taxes by 3,000%.

Yes. The new mandates regarding health care, and cap and trade, and a value added tax will increase profits and decrease employment costs. Unicorns and skittles for everybody.

I call B/S, but lets say it’s true.

That would mean that those bastards held onto the stolen tax money for over a year and a half, allowing millions to suffer... JUST so they could pull off an election year job rush.

Traitors all.

If it doesn’t soon, the dims are cooked for sure in Nov. 300k new jobs a month are needed to maintain the status quo. In the next couple of months high school and college grads will be hitting the job market. This means that the ecomomy would likely have to start creating 500k+ jobs per month beginning in May to have any effect on the unemployment rate by Nov.

Let him keep talking and making promises that cannot keep - will kill them in November when unemployment is still 9 percent+.

500,000 a month? Piker; he should have gone whole hog (with apologies to the Imam-in-Chief) and predicted a cool billion! Yeah, that’s the ticket! The Bamster would have global unemployment solved by election day!

Or maybe it's the new hires for the census.

Lets see CO2 Cap and Tax gets passed creating 50 new government agencies, each creating 300 federal jobs writing regulations which force States to create 20 new State agencies, each creating 100 state jobs writing state regulations which will force Business to hire 10 people to comply with Federal and State Energy regulations.

Yep, the energy Bill is a job creator.

All those jobs and not one creating wealth.

This is right, “U.S. employers created 162,000 jobs in March.”
They were all new IRS agents to enforce Obamacare.
And included 48,000 Part time census workers.
