IF ONLY BOBBY HAD JOE'S JOB...:

Reality check for Vice President Joe Biden (Fred Childers, 2/15/09, KSLA)


"But what I don't understand from Governor Jindal is what would he do?," asks Joe Biden while on the Early Show. That rhetorical question to Governor Jindal on the Early Show, was followed with this.

"in Louisiana there's 400 people a day losing their jobs, what's he doing?" asks Biden.

But that claim is wrong, if you look at the numbers from the Louisiana Workforce Commission.

"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. According to her, not only is Louisiana not losing jobs. "The state gained 3,700 jobs for the seasonally adjusted employment," Granier said of the most recent figures.
