VPOTUS spoke Tuesday in a wood-paneled second-floor bar at the Helmsley Park Lane Hotel on Central Park South at a fundraiser for incumbent Democratic NY-1 Rep. Tim Bishop.
Wearing a blue suit and a bluer tie, VPOTUS reminded the 70 people who paid a minimum of $1,000 to hear VPOTUS's remarks and eat a menu of cold-cut sandwiches, salad and coffee that the nation's economic malaise is the fault of the Bush Administration and is improving under Democratic stewardship.
"We've done a lot in the last 20 months," VPOTUS said. "The economy has grown four quarters in a row, not what it needs to, but it's growing, it's not shrinking. Just since January, 860,000 private sector jobs, not nearly enough. But guess what? That's more jobs than were created in the entire eight years of the Bush Administration. That's factual."
