President-elect Barack Obama took to the airwaves today and outlined his “plan” to pluck the American economy from the ditch. He promised to create 2.5 million new jobs with the following strategy:

* Rebuild roads and bridges
* Modernize schools
* Develop alternative energy sources and more fuel efficient cars

Forgive me if I don’t see 2.5 million new jobs in that strategy. Actually, it kind of reminds me of Mike Huckabee’s economic stimulus plan. His big idea was to widen I-95 from Miami to Bangor, Maine. Maybe Huck can make a play for Secretary of Transportation on Team Obama.

The devil is always in Obama’s details. That devil is always hard to find because so few details are actually provided at any given time. After reading Barry’s remarks, I was reminded of a newspaper cartoon I saw years ago. It explains Barry’s economic plan better than he does.


Good luck with that miracle, Barry.

Details? You doan need no steenkin’ details!
