Humor and Music: Loco Motion

From the site Hope n' Change:

To make every single aspect of American life better and turn the economy around, Barack Obama is asking taxpayers for another 53 billion dollars to build really, really fast trains.

The plan was officially announced by Joe Biden, wearing an adorable engineer's cap, who explained that high speed rail is vital to our national interests because it will play a key role in "seizing the future." 

And go "woo-woo!"

The proposed trains will be capable of carrying thousands of passengers, all of whom will need their junk checked...but any security delays will be more than made up for by the trains' ability to rocket along at speeds up to 240 mph in complete safety, as long as Al Qaeda doesn't think to put any pennies on the tracks.

Moreover, constructing this exciting and tremendously expensive new rail system is expected to give the economy a much-needed jolt by creating thousands jobs for high speed train builders, just as soon as they can get here from Japan.

Best of all, the president's high speed rail proposal has given him the chance to float another possible campaign slogan, after "Winning The Future" (WTF?) failed to take off:

"Obama 2012 - Going Nowhere Fast!"

The title reminded me of the dance-song The Locomotion:

I'm wracking my brain and I can't think of ONE situation in which I agree with what BO's initial reaction was the the issue.

NOT ONE!!!!!

This train proposal is another loser.

Still waiting for BO's laser-like attention to jobs.

I'm beginning to wonder if the democrat party is going to re-nominate this guy.
Well...we can hope for change but....oh.....wait...

I though I had a unique take on this train myself.

And another thing; If the objective is to keep people safe, wouldn't you want to keep people off trains, which would be vulnerable to attack?

Cube, you're not the only who can't find one single viable thing Obama has done or has proposed to do.

Great video!

I have to wonder, just where in God's holy name do the liberals come up with all of their hair brained ideas? Their brains are soft, but it cannot all be from drugs, there must be another reason.

Could it be that those trains would be on a fast track to take people to concentration or reeducation camps?
