Kathryn Jean Lopez documents the wild mood swings of Joe Biden:
In recent weeks, Vice President Joe Biden has said that the U.S. economy has been in what he calls “a great recession” and has stressed that it is not a depression, echoing the general consensus of the nation’s economists.
But today the vice president took some liberty with the economic terms to illustrate the continuing struggles of the unemployed in the United States.
For the millions of Americans without a job, “it’s a depression,” Biden said.
Last month, though, the stimulus had [benefited] America beyond his “wildest dreams” for it.
Fortunately, Newsweek is prepared to swing into action whenever Joe’s reputation needs massaging.
