Obama, I’m told, ladies and gentlemen, is taking his American jobs bill to the Brent Spence Bridge on the Ohio-Kentucky border, some bridge that is not falling down, a bridge that is already getting federal funds, so why was it chosen? Well, it was chosen to be a slap in the face to John Boehner and Mitch McConnell who are from Ohio and Kentucky respectively. But, see, this is Obama’s idea of civility. This is how he thinks that you get bipartisan support. He’s not trying to get bipartisan support. He’s taunting.
Now, if I were Boehner and McConnell, and I know this isn’t gonna happen, because we got a sound bite here from Boehner, how he didn’t want the president to fail, gonna work with him, and we got a similar thing from Eric Cantor, they want to work with the president, they want to join everybody here in having a bunch of success. Do you remember Ronaldus Magnus at the Jimmy Carter debate where he said, “I paid for this microphone”? When Obama pulls this latest Chicago stunt at the Brent Spence Bridge that spans Kentucky and Ohio, Boehner… it will never happen. What am I talking about? Boehner and McConnell, it would be fun if they were both there, stand up and say, “We paid to fix this bridge. We gave you $800 billion to fix this bridge back in 2009. You asked us for money to repair it three years ago, we gave you the money; where’s the fix? And where’s the money? If you didn’t intend to fix the bridge then, why should we believe you’re gonna fix the bridge now? In fact, we know you’re not here to fix the bridge.” It’s already getting federal money anyway.
