I am thoroughly convinced the Obama Administration has set VP Biden to the be their fall guy, making him look ignorant.
Well, the Obama Administration is sending VP Joe back out there all alone again and it does not look good.
In an op-ed in today's New York Times, Joe Biden writes:
The care with which we are carrying out the provisions of the Recovery Act has led some people to ask whether we are moving too slowly. But the act was intended to provide steady support for our economy over an extended period — not a jolt that would last only a few months.
Surely the researchers at the Obama White House(after all, it is on the WH website) must know that it was only a few weeks ago that VP Joe Biden had this to say:
we also came forward with what we're going to talk about today, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, an initial big jolt to give the economy a real head start.
Jolt, not a jolt???? Which is it?
Of course, Obama himself had this to say:
we need a big stimulus package that will jolt the economy back into shape and that is focused on the 2.5 million jobs that I intend to create during the first part of my administration. We have to put people back to work.
How ridiculous! Why would the WH do this? Send Joe right back out into the middle of this to use the same word(jolt) as they have in the past. Surely these guys are smart enough to know that someone is going to look backwards and see that a "jolt" to the economy is exactly what was promised by this administration.
