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)…

Vice President Biden to Hold Event in Philadelphia Tomorrow
Vice President, Secretary LaHood to Discuss Administration’s Infrastructure Plan to Help America Win the Future

Washington, D.C. – Tomorrow, February 8th, the Vice President and Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At 10:45 AM, they will deliver remarks at 30th Street Station on the Administration’s plan to build a 21st century infrastructure – from roads and bridges to high-speed rail. The Vice President and Secretary LaHood will discuss new initiatives to increase our nation’s competitiveness, export goods to new markets around the world, and put Americans back to work while growing the economy and helping America win the future.

    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.
