Case In Point

The other day, I posted some good advice from an academic that you should never believe what the government tells you. Always verify. Here's a case in point:

“But what I don’t understand from Governor Jindal is what would he do?,” asks Joe Biden while on the Early Show. And That rhetorical question to Governor Jindal on the CBS morning 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.
Hat tip to The News Junkie.

So, Joe Biden is either ignorant or a liar. Either or both, of course, should come as no surprise as we already know he's an admitted plagiarizer. Will he apologize to Governor Jindal and the people of Louisiana?
