I’m supposed to give a talk over in the Bedrosian Center on transportation and the Road to the White House. What the sam hill am I supposed to say at this point? The Senate, the House, and the White House have all put together fantasy proposals that are all about election-year posturing and symbolic politics—-because they all know what we should, by now, know: there ain’t nothing getting passed this year.
Ken Orski is more mature about this nonsense than I am over at the Infra Blog. He writes:
The President’s FY 2013 budget submission offered the Administration a rare opportunity to rise above partisanship and influence the ongoing transportation reauthorization debate in a positive way.
But, alas, it didn’t turn out that way.
Go read Mr. Oski’s piece because he, unlike me, is capable of talking about it without a) ranting and b) running to the liquor cabinet to see if there’s any Grey Goose to put in my orange juice (locally grown, organic, fresh-squeezed.)
