Joe Biden update: Up to 200,000 new jobs next month. Count on it!

Joe Biden and Obama having a good laugh in 2010

Vice President Joe "I Still Have My Job How About You?" Biden was at yet another political fundraiser today and admitted that he got in White House trouble last month for predicting job growth nationally.

So naturally the garrulous VP did it again today in Pennsylvania.

Speaking for Mark Critz, a Democrat running for a House seat who's "the real deal" as opposed to some others who Biden says have been "real turkeys," the Obama administration's chief gaffemeister said:

We’re going to be creating somewhere between 100 and 200,000 jobs next month, I predict.

Which is a pretty wide range.

Then, to ensure he'd be in trouble again, the long-time senator added:

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.

Maybe Obama won't notice what Joe said. The Duffer-in-Chief is off playing golf again

How's your shoe leather taste, Andrew? That's right, punk. 290,000 new jobs. Joe Biden is much smarter than you'll ever be. Just deal with it.


Well, well, well little Andy. It appears as though ol' Joe was more in the know than you were. Apparently more the 200,00 jobs have been created.

What do you have to say about Joe's prediction? Hmmmm... crickets....

The right is sooooo sanctimonious, self-righteous, hypocritical, blustery, loud, obnoxious and more often than not - just plain wrong.

Have a nice day little Andy!

To call Malcolm a hack, would be an insult to hacks.
