HARTFORD, Conn. – The United States is “on the cusp” of regaining its status as the world’s leading manufacturing country, Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday during one of three stops in Connecticut.

The vice president met with state officials and manufacturing executives at Goodwin College in East Hartford for a roundtable talk on workforce development. The event was taped by NBC Connecticut and streamed over the Internet.

During his remarks, Biden said the nation’s manufacturing industry has created almost 700,000 jobs over the past six years.

“The last 15 years, your children all heard the phrase ‘outsourcing.’ Your grandchildren are going to hear the phrase ‘insourcing.’ They’re not hearing about outsourcing and there’s a reason for that — manufacturing is coming back to the United States of America,” he said.

    He then went to Greenwich to raise money from people who make a living on things like offshoring manufacturing jobs to China.

    Malloy needs to do better than Biden or Obama if he’s trying to impress the electorate with endorsements.

    Whether the US regains its once vaunted manufacturing pre-eminence is debatable. But to make that suggestion in a state run into the ground by a Democratic Governor following unorthodox fiscal policies that have made CT a national poster child for mismanagement is rather unsettling. Absent the “boat”, UTC and Sikorsky there’s precious little non-military manufacturing in CT these days. Surely Mr Bidden knows that.
