Video: Biden falsely claims Jindal’s state is losing 400 jobs a day

posted at 1:03 pm on February 26, 2009 by Allahpundit

Why would a sitting VP want to exaggerate how many jobs are disintegrating on his watch? Because, silly, the worse things seem now, the easier it is to credit The One later with having “created or saved” the jobs people still have.

You know what the media did here, don’t you? They … messed with Joe. Click the image to watch.

losing 400 jobs a day

Wow!
Pretty soon, that could add up to Nanny Pelosi’s 500 million jobs lost.

jgapinoy on February 26, 2009 at 3:58 PM

Does Jolted Joe have a problem with “Gov. Jin-Delle” because he’s not behind the counter at a 7-11?

jgapinoy on February 26, 2009 at 3:59 PM

This is the idiot who is going to oversee a trillion dollars in “stimulus”, yeah we are screwed and should start thinking secession.

I wouldn’t trust Biden with handing out hand towels in the men’s room.

Biden would probably fumble the towels and fill the soap dispensers with the cheap cologne.

Is there one Congressional Democrat who isn’t a completely worthless buffoon? One?

NoDonkey on February 26, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Do hair plugs kill brain cells??

Fartnokker on February 26, 2009 at 4:03 PM

Biden has already demonstrated that he can’t count to 4 (i.e. “J-O-B-S is a three letter word”); how the hell can we expect him to know the difference between 40 or 400?

And this moron is in charge of the $TRILLION Stimulus Package??

Norwegian on February 26, 2009 at 4:08 PM

Well at least he did not accuse Jindal of being one of those “Dot” Indians that have all the 7-11′s and hotels.
But on second thought give him time…

Dire Straits on February 26, 2009 at 4:08 PM

Everytime Biden opens his mouth it’s just to change feet.

Or maybe it’s the Joetox.

jgapinoy on February 26, 2009 at 4:26 PM

It looks like Plugs saw the unemployment numbers for two weeks and transposed them. Instead of 400 +/- fewer claims, Ol’ Joe read it as 400 more claims.

I can imagine an aide off-camera smacking his forehead and saying,”I told him they had 400 fewer unemployment claims, not 400 fewer employed! Geez, what a joke this guy is. I can’t take this any longer. I wonder if Gary Locke is going to be hiring?”

Mallard T. Drake on February 26, 2009 at 4:27 PM

This guy makes Dan Quayle look like a genius! Yet the MSM lets slide all of his missteps, misquotes, tragically ignorant utterances, and comedy gold gaffs. Just try to imagine the field day the media would have if this was a Republican vice president.

Video: Biden falsely claims Jindal’s state is losing 400 jobs a day

^^No he didn’t … he LIED.

When are we going to call this crap for what it is? They are lying – and they do it a lot – and we keep telling them they are inaccurate – or “misstated” the facts, or “falsely claimed”.

A lie is damned lie. The Vice President is a damned liar. If he has a problem with me saying that – he can email me and I’ll tell him personally to his face. It’s not the first time either – he lied many times during the VP debate when Palin beat his ass to a pulp.

This is how the MSM works, and how our current administration will work them. Henceforth, it will be fact that LA under Gov. Jindal is losing 400 jobs a day. The truth is irrelevant. Just as it is in the case of, say, Sarah Palin’s intelligence.

ddrintn on February 26, 2009 at 5:20 PM

$1.8 million for swine odor and manure management in the ‘stimulus’ bill – how epic is this?

Entelechy on February 26, 2009 at 5:30 PM

Maybe he was just plagerizing.

Does anyone have the website number that he got his facts from? If we had the website number, we could see for ourselves.

bloggless on February 26, 2009 at 5:34 PM

To paraphrase Chris Matthews, “Oh, God.”

molonlabe28 on February 26, 2009 at 5:48 PM

I seem to recall that during the election the MSM on more than one occasion would follow-up after a Republican made a claim in an interview and would publicly correct the record if they found something inaccurate was said by the interviewee. I’m assuming we’ll see the Early Show do that very thing tomorrow morning since the inaccurate information went out over their air? Not holding my breath, but hopefully Jindal’s office is pressuring them.

fanofamerica on February 26, 2009 at 5:51 PM

unemployment rate in the home state of

Jindal: 5.9%

Biden: 6.2%

Obama: 7.6%

Pelosi: 9.3%

Reid: 9.1%

So I have just one question to the Democrat leaders….WTF are you idiots talking about?

…not meaning to be cold-blooded or anything, but this is a tough one…on the order of “frying pan v. fire”….

…I’m waiting…any day now, Ol’ Joe’s gonna show up for a presser with his underwear outside his pants…or on his head…,

…it isn’t age, mind…not making an old-folks swipe…

…it’ll be karma….

Puritan1648 on February 26, 2009 at 5:58 PM

Joe Biden is officially the 21st century version of Dan Quayle.

DaveKlassix on February 26, 2009 at 2:05 PM

Poor Dan had a momentary lapse of memory and he was pilloried for it. Now that Joe is in the spotlight more often his lapses can now be qualified as out and out lies. He isn’t the most honest of men as he did have a plagerizing problem when he ran for President many years back. I think he out to be called on it every time it happens. It’s happening every day so it won’t be an unusual happening.

BetseyRoss on February 26, 2009 at 6:03 PM

And this guy wanted to be president? Are you kidding?

He couldn’t speak the truth if he had a mouth full of it.

He makes up facts as he goes.

He plagurizes speeches from British politicians (Neil Kinnock).

He’s a pathological liar.

And that qualifies him to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Scary, huh?

av8tr on February 26, 2009 at 6:04 PM

“‘In December, Louisiana was the only state in the nation besides the District of Columbia, according to the national press release that added employment over the month,’ says Patty Granier with the Louisiana Workforce Commission.”

– For those of you wonder of Jindal’s qualifications, he leads the only state in the nation that gained unemployment. While they’re at 5.9%, compared to the national average of 7.2%, they’re not doing poorly.

– Substance over symbolism.

.

As God as my witness, this administration from the filthy liar on down will destroy this nation if the public is complacent. How in the Hell is this rat bastard traitor able to get away with this crap. Not to mention the filthy liar’s claims about where the auto was invented.

There is no other way to put it. These bastards are evil and/or so incompetent it defies comprehension. We are watching them steal our great grandkids legacy and far too few Americans seem willing to stop these corrupt bastards.

highhopes on February 26, 2009 at 6:23 PM

It’s easy to mess with Joe….since Joe is a mess to begin with.

I will answer myself,,,,, the press is right here! The press is talk radio!!
The only thing the main stream media presses are the pillows they sit on with their fat rear ends!
How long will it take before some high paid so called journalist from a multimillion dollar media empire asks Jindal what his response is to Biden’s statement about 400 jobs being lost a day in his state!!!
The journalist ought to be asking Biden how he came up with that figure,, and show him the evidence he is wrong!!! Isn’t that what journalist are suppose to do????? Dig and find facts???

I think Joe Biden’s strategy is to make himself impossible to parody.

He is such a totally clownish figure, his every appearance is an opportunity to see Sen. Foghorn Leghorn slip on yet another banana peel. He couldn’t possibly be as moronic and clueless as he presents himself.

It has to be an act.

Doesn’t it?

ddrintn on February 26, 2009 at 9:29 PM

What once claimed to be the watchdog of government has become the government’s watchdog, barking away at anything that would slow or threaten the power of leftist bureaucrats and politicians.

Get with the new reality. He is merely doing his part to stem global warming. Because of the way that “Stimulus bill” was forced through the legislative process it has not yet been disclosed that each Biden fart withheld is worth $5K to the worthless toadie of the most evil administration ever. In other words, that sour look means money in the pocket of the plagerist/grifter who happened into this gig.

The only parody of Biden would be a hard-working intelligent public servant. He’s immune from SNL but tht means he is a public joke and it will only get worse. Keep in mind that we’ve only seen the first month of Biden as VP/Court Jester to the filthy liar. Come 2010, when elections are important again, Biden had damned well better be a full out idiot to distract the public from their discontent with all this spending from the filthy bastard and Democrat party. I’m talking funnier than Carson idiocy.
