    sums it up nicely. VOTE out this disgusting administration in 2012

    What are we to think about a president and vice president who blow nearly a trillion dollars in borrowed money, accept no responsibility for it and then traverse the nation trying to convince Americans that if we don't spend half that much again, people will die from dilapidated bridges and women will be raped because we can't afford cops?

    What business do these two have lecturing anyone about anything, much less the conditions that might ensue if we were not to spend more printed money to pay for things they failed to finance the first time because they misappropriated the funds?

    Last month, Obama, stumping for his misnamed "American Jobs Act," told his AstroTurf audience in Raleigh-Durham that "in North Carolina alone, there are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here, on or around the Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls?"

    After attempting to scare those in the crowd into believing they were one pylon away from being crushed by a fallen bridge, Department of Transportation engineers and administrators had to mollify residents about the safety of the area's bridges.

    Wally Bowman, DOT's division chief for Wake County and six neighboring counties, said, "The key thing is: We don't have any bridges that are about to fall. We don't have any bridge out there that is structurally inadequate, where it cannot handle the traffic. We make sure those bridges stay in a good state of repair."

    Obama obviously hadn't bothered to do his due diligence; he just made a false assertion to gin up support for legislation that a number of high-profile congressmen in his own party even reject.

    Where's the outrage? Where are the media? Why don't they ask Obama why he's proposing to spend $447 billion on projects that aren't even necessary and trying to scare the public into supporting them?

    Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel famously said that "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste," but Obama has taken the maxim to a new level. The enhanced version is: "When all else fails to convince the electorate, fabricate a phony crisis, and fuel it with fear based on lies. Then re-present your proposal as the only antidote."

    read it all with comments..

    Every Mayor of Los Angeles wants to raise taxes to add 1,000 cops to the police force. All of them. That is THE answer, when addressing raising taxes. When the tax increase materializes, the people are told that the crime rate is down, and we never have hired those 1,000 officers.

    Fear mongering is a one-way street. It only goes right.

    Cops should be paid from local taxes, NOT federal taxes.... a teenie bare minimum is paid with federal money so its a scare tactic from the left as usual.

    Your team ignored all of these problems while in office.

    You then started two wars you refused to end.

    Then you crashed the world wide economy.


    Pretending wont change these facts

    How is paying cops more gonna make them answer 911 calls faster?

    Since cops are primarily first-responders how is paying them going to calm an aggressive rapist?

    Are they going to put every sexual offender or pervert in jail?

    Absolutely correct. Local issue. The Federal Camel's nose under the tent means they dictate terms...and besides? The funds will be for a year. After they run out? The locals have to either fund the additions, or fire them...or the localities have to BEG for more funding.

    Aaaaaay madam! Our "team" didn't start any war. We simply shut down those who declared war on us by removing terrorists, their terrorist training camps, and their terrorist financiers, including shell-game Saddam and his Rape Room sons. It was a joint effort and it was effective.

    After WWII, we Americans kept our troops in Germany to fend off another global conflict, and it has worked. The terrorists of 9/11 were descended from people who actually convinced Hitler to put the pox on Jews all over Europe, and he did.

    Right now, you have a player on your team who is going to ignore wisdom of the past, give a get-out-of-jail-free card to AlQaeda, and call anybody who knows that's not smart "racists."

    Clean up your own house before demanding us to go along with things that never never worked in the past--Marxism and its wealth redistribution balderdash only makes people noncompetitive since it's easier to let others do all the work, and you get the fruits of their labor through tax theft of their earnings.

    TM, you have a true knack for pissing off the barracudas, but it's ok, as long as you leave enough free enterprise for it to benefit you, then the rule of law will protect you. Remove free enterprise and morality, it's every man and woman for himself or herself, which makes it a jungle out there.

    That's what your party is pushing as though life itself depended on it. It's foolhardy what the Demmies want to do. Foolhardy.

    Of course it's all Obama's imagination that our infrastructure is a shambles.
