Selling the Brooklyn Bridge

Who's the bigger fool? Someone who thinks he is smarter than 350 million people collectively, or 350 million people who are increasingly seeing through the media smog?
Barack Obama recently declared that there are a couple of hundred bridges in the nation that are on the verge of collapse, and only passing his latest pork bill will save thousands of Americans from death.
You don't have to be an affirmative action graduate from Harvard to know that the Highway Trust Fund contains billions of unspent dollars and that bridges on the verge of collapse would be the top priority for that money.
In addition, you don't have to be a TelePrompter-reading orator to know that taxpayers were just raped to the tune of nearly a trillion dollars and THAT money was supposed to go to the nation's most important "shovel ready" projects.
Bridges groaning under the weight of vehicles and cracking from the strain are not important?
How is it that this national "emergency" is so far down in the pecking order? Who sets the priorities in the White House?
The $20 billion Obama extorted from BP would have paid for a lot of bridge repairs. Not to mention the billions spent to shore up labor unions and protect the jobs of government workers.
To get on national television and make such a transparent political statement shows one thing: utter contempt for the American people.
