VP Biden makes several gaffes at Greenfield plant

There’s a difference between Ener1, a local lithium-ion battery maker for electric cars, and Enron.

 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.
