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.
