    Now that I work in Jersey I have to take the George Washington Bridge Daily. Something curious happened last summer. There were lane closures but no one was working on the bridge. Ever. And at all. It was infuriating and caused LOTS of traffic.

    Well..this year I found out it was the result of a "study". But it was a study that no one owned or announced. And it was a study with no results. And lately? It's not a study. And the plot has been thickening..

    Oh, yeah, I remember Barry and Biden and other Dims touting all those shovel ready jobs that were going to juice the economy and whatnot. And, who can forget Barry & Co. yucking it up later over the fact that they weren't so shovel ready after all. What a hoot that was, huh?

    It happened in August.

    I'd pass by the cones in the morning..no work.

    I'd see them at night. No work.

    I was like, WTF is going on?

    :mad:

    Eyah.

    That was another huge Obama mistake, providing cover for Republican governors.

    You seem to forget that the money was given as grants and the states could decide how that money was used.

    Rubes like Jindal, who went around his state with big checks..after saying he'd "never" take them, used the money to keep cops, firemen and teachers on the payroll along with his big tax cuts.

    THAT'S what Obama should have said, instead of the Shovel Ready not Ready nonsense.
