In Biden’s view, the “affirmative task we have now is to actually create a new world order because the global order is changing again and the institutions of the world that worked so well in the post-World War II era for decades, they need to be strengthened and some have to be changed. So we have to do what we do best. We have to lead.”

He added, “This is not a zero sum game. It’s overwhelmingly in our interest that China prosper, that Mongolia prosper.”

Biden said the global “playing field” needs to be “leveled” so competition is fair and healthy.

With a level playing field, Biden said American ingenuity would compete with anyone in the world.

“I have overwhelming confidence in the competitive capacity of the American worker,” he said.

In the speech, Biden stressed that he makes “no apology” for America when he travels abroad to make sure American companies get an “even shot” in the global economy.

The former Delaware senator also urged Congress to reform the immigration system since many foreign students educated in the U.S. are sent home after graduating.

“Instead of sending them home, we should be stamping a green card to their diploma as they walk across the stage. Literally. I mean this literally,” Biden said.

“If they have a job here, they should be able to stay here. We should want them here.”

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.
