America has highways all built with government help in the 50s & 60s.

Maybe America can build cooling stations in New Mexico & Oklahoma.

I wonder why Obama gives all the bailout money to Wall Street bankers instead of building highways & bridges like he preaches?

Where do we need a highway built that doesn't already have one? I'm sure he'd be happy to spend the money to build a bridge to Hawaii.
2,000 miles of bridges
20 rest stop atolls
10 gas station atolls
4 hotels, since few would drive the entire way non stop

I'm sure he knows a company he could pay trillions of tax dollars to, to build it.

Even he he tried to do so, there aren't any cement trucks and bulldozers with "federal government" slapped on the side. The roads and bridges would require funding with our tax dollars and private contractors would be paid to do the work with .... our tax dollars.

They would be absurdly expensive green energy roads and bridges, built by his crony union donors, I'm sure. It's how he launders our tax dollars into his campaign coffers.

The bailout was done under Bush while he was still in office--remember? The stimulus funds done when Obama took office did go toward some highways and bridges, but not nearly enough. I'm in Nebraska, and they DID take advantage of the money to do some major infrastructure work here.
