    Well if you don't let it get off the ground of course it will fail.

    This country is too big geographically and will require the Federal govt. through Federal Taxpayer to maintain the rail system and we know that is a failure everywhere it is tried.

    So we could do it over a 100 years ago with no real machinery but now it is impossible?

    Monthly maintenance and employment expenses. It never was impossible only too costly. We have Amtrax now and it is broke so what makes a high speed rail system more feasible? Dream on.

    Why would anyone vote to re-elect Obama? What exactly has he done to warrant re-election?

    **saved the country from a depression

    **made some strides toward health care reform, though he didn't go far enough.

    **brought integrity back to the executive branch, especially in regulation.

    **Got bin Laden.

    probably the most effective thing barack the slasher obama has done so far is NOT to dismantle the anti terror policies (gitmo, detention, wiretapping...) of his predecessor

    thus allowing our intel agents and navy seals to GET ubl

    america is grateful for that

    I am sure you believe that and buy the Obama rhetoric but what exactly did he do to save us from a depression? Economists claim it was TARP that did that and TARP was passed and signed under Bush. Further the recession ended in June 2009 long before Obama had any affect at all. there are 15 million unemployed Americans who are in depression now.

    Steps towards socialized medicine you mean?

    Integrity? LOL Czars! Lobbyists! Secrecy! Where is the respect?

    With the help of enhanced interrogations, yes, he got Bin Laden. It is the Economy and always will be. Where are the jobs? More unemployed! Less employed! 3.5 trillion added to the debt! Yes, he has had quite an affect on the economy.
