    OBAMA IS REDISTRIBUTING AMERICA'S WEALTH TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

    SHOCKING ABC News on Obama/USA Infrastructure

    Diane Sawyer reporting on U.S. bridge projects going to the Chinese.... NOT Americans.

    The bridges are right here in the U.S. and yet Obama has approved for Chinese contractors to come in and do the work. What about jobs for Americans???

    This one should be tough for the supporters of the current regime to swallow....AND it comes from ABC NEWS...no Snopes or Wikileaks on this one!!

    The lead-in with Obama promising jobs in the U.S. by improving our infrastructure is so typical of all his promises! Our tax dollars are at work – for CHINA!!!

    I pray all the unemployed see this and cast their votes accordingly in 2012!

    "This one should be tough for the supporters of the current regime to swallow" – LOL – you and I both know they follow blindly. BO can kill a person and most of the fools following him will still vote for him.
