    ...private industry creates jobs. Your right about the GOP newbies being worthless, just like the rest of the DNC/GOP politicians. Fire the GOP/DNC poli's & replace em with Constitutionally based representatives of the people.

    Government doesn't create job? Ask the people who live in areas where trhe military used to be at or the people near Cape Canaveral if government creates jobs, you're out of your facking mind. Cl,ose down Fort Bragg or a Ft Hood and businesses outside post as well as government employees would suffer, you facking blind and never see the whole picture. Government does create jobs directly and indirectly.

    Sure - government creates jobs. TONS of (worthless) jobs.
    BTW - how much revenue do these government jobs create?

    There's a reason he's a former Republican Congressman.

    Ok....Here are the facts. And I should know since he was the congressman in the district next to mine.

    Ray Lahood replaced retiring Bob Michel (who I met in a golf outing), the House Minority Leader from 1981-1995. Ray was the only (or one of the few) freshman GOP congressman who REFUSED to sign Newt Gingrich's "Contract with America". Pretty gutsy for a freshman.

    He had that job as long as he wanted. When he announced he was quitting nearly every person running for his job wanted his endorsement.

    He was a really, really good congressman who had respect from and worked across both sides of the aisle. He also sponsored bipartisan retreats to help reduce the bitterness between the parties. That is why he was the person picked to chair the Clinton impeachment proceedings. Even the Democrats respected him.

    One of the smartest moves Obama made was tapping him for Transportation Secretary.

    "Worked across both sides of the aisle" is a euphemism meaning he's a RINO. Just as I thought: there's a reason he's no longer a Congressman.

    No self-respecting Republican would work for Obama.

    Someone should send him a voter registration application so he can change his party.
