Let's rebuild the bridge to nowhere, I'm sure its unused pavement has potholes by now.

i'm just curious if ALL 57 States of America will get new roads? Since Obama has not, according to him, visited all 57 States during his race to be elected, just want to be sure all 57 get the attention they deserve.

You should listen carefully to that speech. He said that there would be two States he would not get a chance to go to. He actually claimed there were 59 States.

Libia will become a American state and the North Pole.

Nothing new off course because Santa is already American.

My 6-yr was just claiming that he is the King of the North Pole this evening.  He's going to be pissed when he finds out he can only be governor now...

have i missed something, only i thought there were 50 states. i know that DC and prueto rica want statehood and that there have been talk about califania spliting into a northern state and a southern state but that makes only 53, who are the others? somoa , guam? or irak, afhanistan? or the uk which is often described as the 51st state


or is this just an in joke

"or is this just an in joke"

Our Dear President actually said it (there are many recordings, in this one !00:37 or so)


No, not an IN joke, would that it were, would that it were.

America .. you are being badly served. Not slightly but seriously... badly served.

If I was in a diner being slowly served by this man, I would ask for my Money back.

The asphalt is made of oil.  This won't be cheap.

And, of course, it must be paid for with other spending cuts.  No borrowing.  No tax increases.

Want to buy $5 billion of asphalt?  Cut $4 billion of Medicaid transfer payments to states.  Maybe also $1 billion in blue state military bases.  Then let's see if states want those roads fixed.

Read the transcript of Jimmy Hoffa Jr's remarks prior to Obama's speech and you'll see the groundwork for the coming war.

And it's people like the Obamination, Hoffa and their ilk that cause me to no longer be interested in being "united" with a good portion of my fellow Americans anymore.  If they want to wage war on me, fine, but if al-Qaeda goes after them or hits them, don't come crying to me.  I'll just tell you to go fuck yourself.

The one thing the Obama presidency has correctly demonstrated is that America is NOT ready for a black president.  Too many rednecks, hillbillies, confederate goons and lower brain stem conservatives who are too distracted by his skin color to have credible, productive conversations about the real problems in this country. 

Too many conversations about Hitler, Mao, Marx, socialism, communism, death panels, birth certificates, czars, 'he's a terrorist,' etc., etc., etc. America has been confronted with these exact same problems for decades, yet this ridiculous language was never used before. Can you only imagine if Obama had crafted the Patriot Act, and allowed the government to eavesdrop on your conversations?  Holy fuck!  Or if he had crafted TARP, or the bailout of GM and Chrysler, Freddie, Fannie, the backstop of Bear, etc.?  Or if 9/11 happened during his presidency? 

While it's a faux pas to outwardly call him a "nigger," the conservatives just equate him to the most loathsome political villians in history, instead.  How the hell can we make any progress when a large percentage of the population is too distracted with total nonsense?  Comatose conservative goons who haven't removed their asses from their Lazy Boy chairs since the 1970's are suddenly marching through city centers with signs that say "I Want my Country Back!" Back from what?  The same place it's been for all of modern history?  Most of those conservatives have no understanding of our banking system beyond what Rush and Glenn have told them.   

Just look at the debt ceiling debate.  The debt ceiling has been raised 77 times since the early 1970's, and 7 times during the Bush administration.  Suddenly, this one is a problem. And yet the bond market has absolutely NO ISSUES with our debt whatsoever - historic low rates, in fact.  I wonder why the conservatives are suddenly crying about this particular debt ceiling raise?  Maybe because it wouldn't look right for the Texas cowboy to drive America into the ditch, while the black Kenyan turns it around?  God forbid!  Let's say NO to everything, even to the point of national default! 

There's a really despicable, ugly underbelly in America and it's confirmed that America is NOT ready for a black president.  It's far too much of a distraction and its hindering our ability to move forward.

Move forward to what?


The "american dream" spread to all corners of the petri dish or a return to sustainable living?

well said. It was that lecture from Nate Hagens I think, ex editor of the oil drum who pointed out that we are always pumping (pimping?) that the third world should aspire to our footprint. But given this ever shrinking petri dish, we probably have it backwards. Things are going to get a lot more crowded and a lot leaner faster than we know

Ha - ha there really are Obama apologists left and they aren't all huddled in the corner over at HuffPo. Yeah we're all racists, it's that simple; if only those hateful White people had embraced Obama's genius and brilliant policies everything would be fine.


PS Change your name, no Obama supporter is a Libertarian.

Very strong rebuttals from the lower brain stem brigade.  It's difficult for you to debate when Rush and Glenn haven't pre-packaged your rebuttal for you, isn't it?

Denzal Washington or the POTUS from 24 would have been better choices. We wouldn't complain then. But this commie from Chicago has to go. A bridge would have been a better choice than Obama.

Bottomline is he won the election because he said he was going to be different. He was going to end politics as usual in DC. All he's done is continue politcs as usual in DC and frankly has made it worse.
