Grim Facts

"We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad," Barack Obama.

That's what the president of the United States flat-out said Thursday
during what was supposed to be a photo op to sell his jobs plan next to
an allegedly deteriorating highway bridge.

A railroad between continents? A railroad from, say, New York City all the way across the Atlantic to France?
Now, THAT would be a bridge!

It's yet another humorous gaffe by the Harvard graduate, overlooked
by most media
for whatever reason. Like Obama saying Abraham-Come-Lately
Lincoln was the founder of the Republican Party. Or Navy corpseman. Or
the Austrian language. Fifty-seven states. The president of Canada. Etc.

This guy, who will ride around in Secret Service SUVs for the rest of his life, has this thing for railroads that other people should ride in. So, according to the White House transcript  here's what passes for Obama leadership:

Now, we used to have the best infrastructure in the world here in

America. We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad, the
Interstate Highway System. We built the Hoover Dam. We built the Grand
Central Station.

So how can we now sit back and let China build the best railroads? 
And let Europe build the best highways?  And have Singapore build a
nicer airport?

Quick question: Has anyone ever heard any American express jealousy over Singapore's sweet airport?

2 cents:

"overlooked by most media" gee why would that be? Let me think, did the media every ponce on any other president or vice president for gaffes? George W? George H? Dan Quayle? Bill Clinton? Well okay 3 of 4 they did. Gee would that indicate double standards? Bias? Agenda? If so - does it concern you that they are the mainstream information peddlers in our country?
