La – Robin – Hood is Out
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced Tuesday he will not be sticking around for President Barack Obama’s second term, according to Roll Call. Many of us first got to know LaHood when George Will wrote that this mediocre legislator had been transformed: “I think we can change people’s behavior.”
LaHood was talking about getting people out of their cars and onto rail transit. However, he was not talking about people voluntarily leaving the road. His determination was to coerce people out of their cars. Since then he has funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to wasteful projects in pursuit of the Portlandification of America. Good riddance!
