Obama Wants to Invest in Infrastructure and Make it Impossible to Build Anything (Carbon Footprints)

If you heard one theme that Obama has been on about at the beginning of both of his terms, it’s infrastructure. During his last campaign, Obama even described it as “Nation Building at Home”, implicitly admitting that he beat down America to the level of Iraq or post-war Japan.

All the bridges, we were told, were seconds away from falling down. The highways were full of potholes. The schools were leaning farther than a Pisan tower and if we didn’t build light rail across California, all the illegal aliens would have no choice but to run down pedestrians without a license.

The infrastructure pitch sounds good to a lot of people. But it’s coupled with an environmentalist anti-infrastructure pitch.

Obama wants to spend money building things, but he doesn’t actually want to build them. Instead he wants to spend money not building them. That’s the absurd post-construction phase we’re in.

Barack Obama is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects, from pipelines to highways.

“It’s got us very freaked out,” said Ross Eisenberg, vice president of the National Association of Manufacturers, a Washington-based group that represents 11,000 companies such as Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) and Southern Co. (SO) The standards, which constitute guidance for agencies and not new regulations, are set to be issued in the coming weeks, according to lawyers briefed by administration officials.

While some U.S. agencies already take climate change into account when assessing projects, the new guidelines would apply across-the-board to all federal reviews. Industry lobbyists say they worry that projects could be tied up in lawsuits or administrative delays.

A balanced budget means that banks lose $Billion$.

No politician wants to risk their wrath.

I swear Obama is influenced by the false god Loki, master of trickery.

Would some patriotic person somewhere please form a plan and act upon it to get him removed from power please?

This idiot is nothing more than a looter running amok without any fear of being arrested, at the very least Lord drop a supersonic rock on his head.

Meanwhile, we can’t buy the VWs that get 60+ MPG because that would reduce Gov’t income from taxes on gasoline. :-\

Any “infrastructure” that Democrats support will be built under federal laws and regulations that balloon the cost. Any increase in federal spending will be done with borrowed money, or by inflating the money we have.

In the future, the only people who will use this infrastructure will be government employees driving their Government Motors cars to their government office buildings to support efforts to make government more powerful.

ANY government project’s initial disclosed cost will balloon to over 20 times the cited cost when finished. NO EXCEPTIONS! In many cases it will exceed 100 times the cost.

Im not going to target banks. But if your interesting in a balanced budget get involved in the balance budget amendment state Constitutional convention.

Of course none of this matter politically if we cannot breach the race barrier there is no future and thus no reason for us to care about a balanced budget.

What does POTUS Obama not have in common with Ceasar, Caligula, Nero, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Castro, Chavez? For certain he has all their dictator, tyrant traits and evil manners. He is cold hearted, uncaring, deceitful, hateful and egotisitc, just like all of those mentioned!!! Tyrants, murderers, dictators, evil doers, they all were.....but, believe it or not they all loved their countries and empires!!!

Obama does not!!! He is as anti-American as one can get!!! He is trying to destroy this country with all his determination, drive and focus. The picture is very clear and telling. Shucks even Democrats know it!!! But.....what ever goes around comes around.

The revolt inside the Democrat Party is brewing. it will manifest itself shortly as both the senate and house overwhelming approve the construction of the Keystone pipeline. Obama with each passing day is becoming a true Lame Duck POTUS!!!
