Obama's Bridge Too Far

Today, Obama took his "jobs" bill to Ohio. Standing in front of the Brent Spence Bridge, the President, once again, pleaded for America's support of his infrastructure jobs plan to repair our nation's crumbling infrastructure. Unfortunately for the President, the Brent Spence Bridge isn't in need of repairs. It might be well overused due to under-design; but it is a solid structure that won't get a penny of Obama's $447 billion jobs boondoggle. (Click here to See L.A. Times Story: Oops, Obama touts his jobs plan today at an Ohio bridge that won't qualify).

But, you see, it isn't about that bridge or any bridge, for that matter. This is all about a reelection campaign and the Brent Spence Bridge makes a great backdrop. Just another prop for Obama to have his picture taken with. A picture that will hit every news show, newspaper, and news website in this country.
