    Using your logic, the fact that the WTC collapsed was due to bad building standards.
    Show me any of my post, where you think that my logic is so flawed that i would think that "the WTC collapsed was due to bad building standards ".

    Agreed...but my point still stands "its still and interstate bridge and has to be replaced; mostly with federal funding. "

    You tried to use the I-35 bridge as an example of our, "crumbling", infarstructure. You got it wrong. It's time to admit that our involvement in the GWOT didn't cause the bridge to rot down.

    The bridge crumbled into the river. You think that flaws in design won’t make a fifty-year-old bridge crumble/collapse?

    That's an awesome argument you're making. No wonder Liberalism is failing every day.

    Except that with Obama, bringing the troops home is so as to expand nanny-state programs here, and put more folks on the gubmit teat.

    That's not nation building. That's suicide.

    We already have healthy infrastructure budgets. If it was a design flaw, it happened at a time when we had plenty of money in the budget.

    Drive around my friend. Unlike the frantic panic of the libs demanding that we blow money we do not have on "infrastructure", you can safely get to where you want to go, and all on the current budget. We already threw hundreds of billions at "shovel ready", remember ?

    Spare us the BS.

    Point is, we already have "funding". The engineers screwed up, not the funding.
