Left Hand – Right Hand

Politicians and government officials you just have to love them.  Okay you really don’t have to love them, but they do the darndest things.  As I sat through a recent presentation by a transportation official who was selling a program to construct additional roads within his district.  I don’t know if you have heard, but there is a lot of stimulus money for shovel-ready projects to create billions of new jobs.  It should not be a surprise to have a transportation agency wanting to build more roads.  That’s the left hand.

Update – Walnuts/Emanuel

Departing Democrat Representative Eric Massa gave us a behind the scenes look at how the Obama White House runs its business…the Chicago way.  Massa’s stories about his encounters with Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel provide detail on what ends this administration will do to achieve its goals.  There were plenty of stories about Emanuels’s language, behavior and outbursts, but they were usually tinged with doubt because of the sources.  Massa is a Democrat.
