Vice President Joe Biden called the U.S. economic figures for March “disappointing” on Friday but said America “remains better positioned than any country in the world to be the leading economy” of the 21st century.

“The economy has now added private sector jobs every month, disappointing this month, but they nonetheless added jobs,” said Biden at the Export-Import Bank conference in Washington.

“Even so we’ve still found that at the time there’s a need for an ambitious affirmative agenda. We strengthened and signed three free trade agreements.”

Biden said he’s not optimistic out of “naivety” but because he knows the history of America.

“I know I’m referred to in the White House as the White House optimist. I read that all of the time like I’m the new guy. As my grandfather would say, ‘like I just fell off the turnip truck yesterday,’” Biden said.

“In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been there longer than any of them and I hope you all haven’t noticed.”

The private sector added 95,000 jobs and payrolls rose by 88,000 workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In response to the jobs numbers, the White House said the economy is “continuing to recover” from the financial crisis.

Hmm -- New World Order. I wonder if Neil Kinnock said that.

Ladies and gentlemen, what we see here is a primer to recognizing dementia. Study it closely so you can recognize it in people around you. Our dear 2nd loser needs to learn and understand the difference between optimism and fantasy. The number of people no longer in the workforce (those no longer looking for work) is at 89,304,000, a new record (CBS news)! Nearly one third of the population. Quit blaming Bush and/or the republicans, most of all, quit calling this an improvement/recovery to our economy! Joe... you need to retire now, before you show up at the lectern totally naked and asking the audience if they like your new clothes.

This is liberal (fuzzy) math at its best. The economy needs 200,000 jobs a month, but idiots like Joe keep putting 112,000 job deficits in the "gain" column. Then equally moronic mouth-piece celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker get on television and gush breathlessly about how the great Barack Obama has created 4,000,000 jobs when he needed 9,000,000 in his first term just to break even.

It's the same Beltway-speak where slowing the rate of growth is reported as a cut.

Don't be too hard on Joe. Sometimes his hairplugs press inwards resulting in transient perturbations of intracranial pressure. Ordinarily the body can accomodate these fluxes; unfortunately, excessive exposure to botox impairs the safe venting of pent up pressure, which accounts for Joe's periodic dumbspeak.

I read the IMF will give Cyprus a loan if they take 6% of the money in bank accounts over 100,000.00EU's. It appears region 4 of the WTO is coming on line with heaps of human blood, and money from? Moloch worship is global, and the global economy may implode with Europe, and the US in to much debt.The NORKS say NUKES on Wed.

Yep, the age of man, or the New World Order does exist. Why will Nimrod not show his ugly mug to rule it? Is there a restrainer?

Has Joe Biden ever had a real job where he could be fired from? Obviously being a democratic senator from Delaware is a life-long position, regardless of whether one is an idiot or not.

Joe Biden has been to the Bilderberg Group get together. He knows what's up.

The low-information voters don't even know what's happening with the jobs report and the continuing disappearance of jobs. They're too busy watching the Jersey Shore, Kardashians, Real Housewives, Extra, omg, etc. While they do that, they're texting on their obama cell phones. The bottom could fall out of our economy, and they wouldn't know it for years. They are that far tuned out.
