CINCINNATI, Ohio (CNN) – In his first trip to Ohio since the election, Vice President Joe Biden jumped back into campaign mode, setting his sights on Republican critics of the $787 billion stimulus plan.
"All the talk about how we're gonna waste all this money, that's a dog that ain't barked yet," Biden said in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday. "And it's not gonna bark on my watch."
It appeared to be a direct shot at House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio, who posted a Web video featuring a bloodhound on the hunt for stimulus jobs.
"This is Ellie Mae, and she hasn't found any stimulus jobs. And neither have we," Boehner says in the video.
But some stimulus money has found its way to Boehner's own district in Butler County, Ohio.
I'm getting IOU's as a paycheck that can't be cashed until October. Obama trots around Europe mugging for the cameras and the State of California is insolvent. Stimulus package? How about honoring these IOU's NOW – Obama bailed out the banks, the car companies and now you can bail out California. The Terminator needs to be thrown out of office. His incompetence is causing the biggest financial crisis California has seen and where is Obama? In front of the cameras, where else!
