    The below video from President Obama's economic advisor Reich speaks for itself.

    I can't believe you all are to chicken to watch this video.

    The best argument against a democracy is a 5 minute conversation with an average voter!

    Did watch the video. Failed to see where it said what you said it said. It said the jobs should not go to only white male construction workers. You want to make a point, at least be honest about the point that you are making.

    Obamabots are out in force on this one! They cannot believe that the economic advisor & on the Obama adminstration just stated that we will exempt "white males" & "skilled workers"?

    Let alone Charlie Rangel suggests that the Federal Government is going to take over our states & our state legislature--regarding permits, authorization, planning, etc.

    This is order to expedite, unlicensed, inexperienced, unskilled crack--heads into building bridges for all of us.

    Our government--who couldn't tack two boards together, is now telling us how to build a "safe" bridge.

    The core of our economic problem right now is that neither businesses nor consumers can get the credit they need for the economy to recover quickly, and I see nothing in the Obama recovery package that addresses this problem. Nearly all of it seems to go to giving some relief, mostly to consumers, while the economy continues to reel under this credit crunch. It seems the Obama administration thinks this problem will be corrected by market adjustments over time and they are taking this as an opportunity to spend money on projects, some of them worthwhile, that they would not have be able to get without the recession as a pretext.

    [[Reich--infracstructure projects-no "skilled workers"--no "white male workers" ]]


    You can bet your ass I will be keeping track of where the bridges are and be driving around them if at all possible.

    Thinking like this is scary. Not so much because of the end result, but, because it holds no logic. Yet we vote these people into office. Anyone dumb enough to make such a comment does not belong in Washington!

    Incredible.

    You need to stop listening to people who make their living by potstirring like Rush and Michelle Malkin....

    What Reich SAID was that he favors a stimulus plan that ALSO "includ[es] women and minorities, and the long-term unemployed" in addition to skilled professionals and white male construction workers, not one that is limited to women and minorities.

    I will say that he probably could have been clearer about that though. He said he was thinking about it in terms of addressing long term unemployment and that does affect minorities more than "white skilled professionals", doesn't it?
