The Middle Class: Shovel-Ready

    Daniel Halper at the Weekly Standard reports that Biden, in his own inimitable way, has succinctly put Barack Obama's first term as President in perspective:

Biden:  "This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify--how they can justify--raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years... How in Lord's name..."

    Early in his Presidency, Barack Obama said:
Through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, "we will be investing $28 billion in our highways, money that every one of our 50 states can start using immediately to put people back to work," Obama said. "I can say that 14 days after I signed our Recovery Act into law, we are seeing shovels hit the ground."
    I guess we should have asked a few more questions about what the shovels were doing.
