Lying about Joe Biden's "lie"

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Right-wing bloggers claimed Biden simply made up his claim that Louisiana was losing 400 jobs a day. Biden was poking Gov. Jindal who suggests he might not take the stimulus money for his state of Louisiana.

With that the right-wing bloggers came crashing down on Biden, calling him an "idiot," an "IDIOT," and "Vice Liar." (Get it?) The 400 figure was pure fiction.

Blogger Dan Kennedy looks at the Bureau of Labor Statistics Data and says Biden got it right. And Think Progress confirms that Louisiana had 430 new unemployed people every day during the month of December.
