LaHood still running interference

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, the most prominent Republican in President Barack Obama’s administration, accused GOP House members Friday of putting their hope for the president to fail ahead of working toward solving the nation’s problems.

Responding to a question about why it was so difficult to get big infrastructure projects built right now, LaHood told a transportation conference that “some people don’t want Obama to be successful.”

“A big percentage of the Republicans that were elected this time came here to do zero, and that’s what they’ve done,” he said. Those lawmakers, he said, have obstructed other people who are trying to get things done.

Perhaps its wishful thinking, but I think there are other Republicans who would like to join LaHood and stand up to the crazy - but lack the courage. I'm sure that's easier to do from a Cabinet position in the administration. Still, this is a pretty direct hit at the Republican leadership from one of their own. Way to go Ray!!!!!

  1. Props to LaHood for tellin' the truth, and I so wish the few adults in the Republican Party could take control away from the children, but there are so few of them left these days that it's wishful thinking on my part.
