Joe Biden says there were more new jobs in the last year
"We have created more jobs in this last year than the Bush administration (did) in eight years."
Joe Biden on Tuesday, April 19th, 2011 in a speech in Cleveland
Vice President Joe Biden loves campaigning in Ohio. He did so 15 times during the 2010 Midterm elections for various state and federal candidates.
But Democrats still suffered a "shellacking," he joked during an April 19 campaign fundraiser in Cleveland for U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, who faces re-election next year.
Citing positive economic news, Biden insisted, however, that the political debate about his administration’s policies now favors Democrats.
"A lot of things we took a shellacking for, the American public has had an opportunity to take a good look at now," he said.
Biden noted the improving unemployment rate. And he added this comparison: "We have created more jobs in this last year than the Bush administration (did) in eight years. We are in a position where we are moving. to toward creating an average of 220,000 jobs a month. Not enough, but we are moving."
