Amid the parade of straw men, the demagoguing of millionaires and billionaires, the veiled threats and the passing of bucks that made up the bulk of Obama’s speech, this line caught my ear early on:
Pass this jobs bill, and we can put people to work rebuilding America. Everyone here knows that we have badly decaying roads and bridges all over this country. Our highways are clogged with traffic. Our skies are the most congested in the world.
Looks like this plan is even more ambitious than anyone had predicted. Obama is going to put Americans to work building more sky?
