Frankly, I think we’re witnessing a nervous breakdown at the corner of Desperation and Denial. But regardless, selling fear remains the only available tactic.

Obama has used the 2008 bridge collapse in Minnesota before as an excuse to pass his insfrastructure funding bills, and he did it again today:


*****

What Obama purposefully fails to mention each time is that the bridge collapse in Minnesota wasn’t caused by a lack of repair/replacement funding, but rather by a design flaw. The bridge was destined to collapse from the moment it was blue-printed — much like the Obama economy.

    If anyone is curious about how to put the emptiness behind a Jimmy Carter smile into words, just listen to Mr. zerØ make a speech.

    Behold the graffiti on the pages of American history.

    Shouldn't that be reported to Odummer's new website to report lies and smears about Duh One?

    You guys are right. We should simply let our country slide into the dumpster. Economy, roads, schools and all.

    …a design flaw.

    When zerØ speaks it’s always revisionist . I used to think of “revisionist history” as a negative, and in order for any honest historian to put zerØ onto the pages of any American history book its gonna have to be nothing more than a blurb of an ink stain with an asterisk leading to the small the print at the bottom of the page or the end of the chapter to find an apology for being revisionist in the process of trying to put any positive spin on the blurb.

    You mean Attack Waaaaaaaatch? I guess we do need to send in the CBS News article. It proves Duh One wrong.

    Hey, YKR, your either a new arrival Islamite, a pre-pubescent, or an ostrich living beneath the dunes of the Namibian desert.

    Alert claxon has been sounding since 2008! Dive, dive, pass the “I hate America” Obama-care, pass stimulus one, now pass stimulus two, pass my bill, pass my bill OK, like zerØ-care it hasn’t been presented yet but trust me pass it anyway! Level off anywhere beneath the point of no return. Aye-aye cap’n zerØ

    Another reminder that Obama's defeat next year isn't a slam dunk sure-thing. The P.T. Barnum Factor will play a major role.

    Speaking of details. The voters in WA ST were dumb enough to fall for that pass it before it falls down crap right after Hurricane Katrina. The voters were told that if they did not pass another 9.5 cent gas tax in 2005 that the next earthquake would cause the Alaskan Way Viaduct to collapse. It was sooooo urgent that althought the government has been collecting the money since 2005 and all they have decided is to go for a "big dig" type tunnel (gee how well did that work out MA?).

    Gee how quickly you forget that the first two stimulous programs were supposed to have all sorts of infrastructure spending, save the economy, and help jumpstart education….so do tell if those worked sooooooo well then why would we need yet another stimulous bill?
