VP Biden to appear with US DOT Sec. LaHood tomorrow

Posted by on February 7th, 2011 at 9:37 am

This just in from the US DOT office. Looks like the Obama Administration thinks that transportation investment is one way we can “Win the future.” (I am anxiously awaiting to hear the word “bicycle” at one of these events)…

    I love bikes, and bicycling as a transportation tool…but I am not sure we want the “B” word used when rail is getting so much republican sniper fire from the grassy knoll right now.

    We need to keep our saddles dry and our headsets down for now.

    I would be more hopeful if the teabaggers and libertarians were true to their fiscal conservative roots (as in save money through promoting low cost mobility) … but just cutting budgets while keeping expensive new highway projects and military projects seems misplaced.
