    I don't know why it took so long for this to surface but here it is:

    So once again a slogan Obama used to push a program....in this case the Porkulus Bill...proves to be total bullshit.

    File this one in the same circular file as "The Summer of Recovery".

    I think he assumed shovel ready was a snap. I don't think he realized whats involved in getting a project TO SHOVEL READY.

    Community Organizer, Harvard Law Professor Yup.

    Real World?? Nope. Didn't have a clue. At least he admitts he didn't have a clue.

    I'm waiting for somebody to start lying for him or defending him with some rationalization.

    Have to give him points for admitting he was wrong. But take them back for lying.

    He, as a community orgaizer, had to know that unions will drag thier feet skimming money off the top researching what kind of shovel would be needed.

    There are shovel ready jobs, he just couldn't look outside the unions or government for them.

    The White House hires interns so they can get some OJT, the President should not be one of them.

    There would be plenty of shovel ready jobs in america if did not use so many bulldozers and such on construction jobs.
    In China you see lots of people with shovels and few with bulldozers.

    Be careful what you wish for you might get it.
