Let the Heavy Lifting Begin

In his national radio address yesterday, Obama gave a listeners a first look at a job creation program that the Washington Post described as "expansive" and "expensive".

"President-elect Barack Obama is developing a plan to create or preserve 2.5 million jobs over the next two years by spending billions of dollars to rebuild roads and bridges, modernize public schools, and construct wind farms and other alternative sources of energy. "

All are worthy uses of funds and I don't disagree with any of it. The real challenge, other than paying for it, is the enormity of the logistics - the plan equates to creating over 2,000 new jobs per day.
It's a long way to go.
