Someone give this man a raise!!

Biden Says 'Everyone Guessed Wrong' on Unemployment Numbers - Political News - FOXNews.com


I wonder if this is the only thing that they will "guess wrong"? Probably not!


"No one realized how bad the economy was. The projections, in fact, turned out to be worse. But we took the mainstream model as to what we thought -- and everyone else thought -- the unemployment rate would be," Biden said.

HUH? I think everyone KNEW how bad it was and still is. And if these idiots continue to make any more "guesses", we are totally screwed!

Shame on you. How dare you criticize an Administration that 'saved' 150,000 jobs in light of the fact that nearly 2,000,000 jobs have been lost since Inauguration? Don't you think massive tax hikes and cap-and-trade will jumpstart the Economy?

When are those baboons in Washington ever going to learn to count, or be realistic, or just admit the fact that they are powerless to do anything short of making matters worse?

It is very telling that Biden was the one to break the news to us ... Obama, was probably just hiding off in the corner sumwhere crying like a little girl!!

I wonder what all of those little changey-feeley ObamaBots are going to do now?

I don't know...it's above my pay scale. Do these figures include all 57 states?

Someone should send Biden this link..there's more than just unemployment numbers being played with.

I have been unemployed since April. I have sent out hundreds of resumes, and only a few interviews so far. I have Bachelor of Science in Economics, and the market for jobs out there is not all that great. I am in Atlanta, GA which has always been a great job market. I have filed for unemployment, and that place is packed everytime I have to go there. It takes 15 to 20 minutes sometimes to find parking. My severance package ran out last week, and considering cashing in the 401 K to live off. Had a job interview on Friday, and hope it turns out to be a job offer soon. Not getting my hopes up to much though. The hope bubble has been busted many times over the past few months. The real issue is that the world is running low on fossil fuels to supply the demand for the energy needs of all the industrialized countries in the world. We need to figure things out fast, or it going to get very ugly fast. Not only do we need fossil fuels for energy, but also to grow all the food supplies that we need. Fertilizers are made out of natural gas, and oil by products. We don't grow all that wheat and corn in this country with cow pooooh!! The government controls this country through the media via television, and the internet now. They are not going to tell you the truth if the truth is not what you want to hear. Think about it. You have to dig for the truth. Don't expect it to be handed to you.
