Thanks Obamanomics I have to drive an hour from Cincinnati-past Hamilton-to Dayton to work every day. I can only imagine what I’d do if Biden added to that commute!

The number one problem with politics was displayed vividly for all to see when it was learned that Vice President Joe Biden planned to visit Hamilton, Ohio on Monday June 25th to rally his base of public sector workers, firemen, police, and teachers by reminding them of their accomplishment a year ago to remove the law that would have reformed collective bargaining in Ohio. When the media announced the VP visit every single article proudly framed the story as though the people of Butler County were privileged that a member of the royal elite were actually going to pay attention to “little ol’” Hamilton in the scheme of global politics. The political left is such a convoluted entity that they actually celebrate activity which prevents the management of tax money.
Yes, it’s true; if Biden had visited as planned to Hamilton he would have brought jobs with him. Think of all the police officers who would be on staff that to shut down the roads so the tax payers could not use them, to make way for Biden’s motorcade. Think of all the teachers and firefighters who would be paid to stand around Biden to pose for pictures and video cameras. At least the teachers would be off for the summer, because they only work 9 months out of the year, but the rest of the public workers whom Biden sought to pander would be assembled by our tax dollars to make way for a self-serving political speech on behalf of the Obama campaign. During Biden’s visit if I desired to go to the auto store to get a new oil filter for one of my cars, I wouldn’t be able to because the public employee cops would have shut down all the roads for another public employee in Biden to simply make a campaign stop that serves him and his boss all of which is completely paid for by the tax payer, including the transportation that brought Biden to Hamilton in the first place. I would say that my need to get to the auto store is far more important than the speech of just another public servant.
