Does Joe Biden Dream of Unemployed Electric Sheep?


Yesterday, “Vice President Joe Biden delivered a rousing review of the government’s economic stimulus plan in a conversation with the nation’s governors. ‘In my wildest dreams, I never thought it would work this well,’ he said. ‘Thank you, thank you.’”

Apparently Joe Biden’s wildest dreams can only be described as apocalyptic.

Let’s take Nevada as an example: $35 million to Nevada’s state Office of Energy: They’ve created three jobs.

Apparently Biden’s wildest dream was that the $35 million would create two jobs.

Remember, Joe Biden felt that a key reason John McCain could not be president was his assessment last fall that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.”
