Biden: Indiana, Nation, LeBron Coming Back, but 8 Million Jobs Won’t Come Back
Joe Biden, a few days ago in Milwaukee: “There’s no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession.”
You could be forgiven for interpreting those remarks to mean the jobs are not coming back.
A day or two later, in Indiana: “I can promise you that it’s going to be okay. Indiana is coming back. The nation is coming back.”
Proving that politicians will promise anything in an election year, Vice President Biden told a Cleveland audience today that NBA superstar LeBron James will remain with the hometown Cavaliers.
The comment came at a fundraiser the veep attended on behalf of Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher, who is running for the open U.S. Senate seat in Ohio.
“LeBron James is coming back and Lee is going to Washington,” he said, according to a pool report from the event.
We will probably know soon whether or not LeBron James will come back to Cleveland. As for the economy . . . well, that comeback, such as it is, is going a lot more sluggishly than the administration anticipated.
No word on Shane.
