And for all the left-wing mouth-breathers can come through after the real work is done and plant wildflowers and windmills.

The right wing ditch-diggers will pay taxes to support the lazy, left wing loafers.
Once Obama hears they arn't pumping sunshine, wind or good will, he will put them out of business.(think of his private comments regarding coal that got out.)

That's alright we still need the "right wing ditch-diggers" to work and pay taxes for all of the left wingers who stay home to live on Obama's utopian welfare programs. Hey, someone has to pay taxes, or there will not be tax revenue to continue the democratic social programs! Go Vikings!

Well, how soon will you be running out and buying a Government Motors Obama special new car? If you are any kind of left wing radical, you must support your government in the auto business. How about it? What do you think of this latest stroke of genuius by our leader? What do you think of stealing from the shareholders and giving to the UAW? Lets hear it.

They didn't teach me construction and pipe laying in college. What the ef do I know about any of that? That doesn't help me. What are these 3,000 new employees going to do once the job is done? Yep, probably unemployment again. Thank you Stimulus Package.

I've been laying pipe 6" at a time for years.
Maybe now I can get paid for it.
Tubing the size of a drinking straw doesn't count, Mort.

Well, I guess I am no ditch digger, but I am sure there are very few of the "smart" liberals who have any idea what you meant, they don't know that just because their mothers told them they were smart meant they are really "smart". I sit here and picture them adjusting their tin foil hats waiting for the signal from nobama.
Doesn't sound like there are any jobs yet, was going to quit my job and go up there, might last until obama is out of office and things return to normal, but not much going on yet, still some work in Texas, and Alaska, and alway's in Saudi, but the heat is getting too much for me, been a year, but might have to go back, can't complain about the pay though, I do direct deposit even from over there, took some doing, you should see the look on the faces of the bank tellers when I come back every 6 months and walk in to get some spending money.
Good luck, don't hold your breath on obama, just lots of hot air so far, if there are any jobs, he didn't have anything to do with it, you just know he didn't know they existed or he would have destroyed them also..

Weren't many right-wingers demanding foreclosure when Bush was in office? Didn't Bush give bailout money to the Big 3 last year? Oh, that's right-it's only wrong when Obama does it. I get it now.

I mean bankruptcy, not foreclosure. Long day. Weren't many on the right demanding that the auto companies file bankruptcy last year? Why is it different this year?

For starters, the auto companies didn't have to take the bailout money. They knew what they were getting into, or should have. Secondly, the bailout was accepted on both sides of the political fence:

While most lawmakers were focused intently on the $14 billion headed to Detroit, others had lingering concerns about the $700 billion rescue package they approved to help banks unfreeze credit markets in October. Last night, Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-Ohio) offered an amendment to require banks that receive cash from the Treasury Department's bailout to account for the money and show that they have increased lending to consumers and businesses, or explain why they haven't.

It passed overwhelmingly, 403 to nothing.

Once again the facts are this it and still is a loan. This story is about a pipeline that will be built not with Obamas help but private money. I wonder what left wing group that will try to tie this up in court? Smeller you cancer drugs will never make it to you again you will die in line when they take your health care away. Global warming fools.
