“The Chinese are more successful [in building infrastructure] because in
their country, only three people make the decision. In our country,
3,000 people do, 3 million,” LaHood said in a short interview with The Cable
on the sidelines of the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival on June 30. “In a
country where only three people make the decision, they can decide where
to put their rail line, get the money, and do it. We don’t do it that
way in America.”
Ray LaHood spoke at the BC Commencement in 2011. I met him and found him to be a very personable and intelligent guy. But this quote? Are you kidding me? A Chinese politburo is preferable to our three co-equal branches of government? And maybe we should mandate a one child per family policy like the Chinese government does? This quote really outlines our choice this November. We've got to defeat this administration. Romney is not a great candidate but I would vote for an orange juice can over Barack Obama and his henchman.
