Prez Gets it Wrong in Campaign to Borrow More From China
The president talks about the budget. To support his argument for more spending, he sites the 2007 Minnesota bridge collapse - which wasn't an issue of spending.
The bridge was designed and built in an era when engineers thought that redundant systems were both unnecessary and inefficient. Gusset plates installed at the time of the bridge’s building were too thin, and without any redundancy to account for a major failure on a single point, it was a tragedy waiting to happen from day 1.
God this guy's a lousy, insincere communicator. Wonder when it, and the relentless bad economy, are going to catch up to him.
