VP Biden makes several gaffes at Greenfield plant

By · January 26, 2011 at 5:58 pm

 Vice President Joe Biden was in Greenfield Wednesday at the new Ener1 facility touting  advanced technology vehicles.  The employees at the plant assemble the lithium-ion batteries that power the Think City electric car going into production in Elkhart.

He didn’t waste any time endearing himself to the audience when he mentioned a number of local dignitaries, but one may wish he hadn’t.

 The VP said, “I understand State Senator Gard is here.  I want to recognize him.  I was told he as here.”  She was.  No word yet on what State Senator Beverly Gard thought of his pronouncement, but he didn’t stop there.

 As I mentioned he was visiting Ener1, which he happened to interchange twice with Enron1.  It is understandable but there is quite a difference there.
