Joe Biden, Veep-in-charge-of-public-amusement , continues his one man war against national gloom. Hattip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. In regard to a question about the new Hudson river rail tunnel on June 8, Joe said, ““Look, this is designed, this totally new tunnel, is designed to provide for automobile traffic. It’s something, as you know, up your way, that’s been in the works and people have been clamoring for for a long time.” The tunnel is solely for trains.
Among his other pressing duties, Veep Biden is in charge of implementation of the stimulus package. In the same conference call in which he tranformed a tunnel for trains into a tunnel for automobiles, he was unable to supply data to support the administration’s contention that the stimulus package had saved, or would save or create in the near future, 600,000 jobs, “I’m sorry I’m not an economist. My background is foreign policy and the constitution.” This comes as a surprise to me since I thought Joe’s background was in plagarism.
Perhaps Joe could look at this post if he is curious as to the actual job impact of the vast sums of money he is responsible for.
Keep ’em coming Joe. The country is in a rough patch, and we can always use a good laugh.
