It's that "laser-like focus on jobs" thing in action

(Via the Drudge Report)

Some days, it's like shooting fish in a barrel...

President Obama went to the groundbreaking of a road project in Columbus, Ohio, Friday to show that his massive stimulus package is still churning out jobs -- a "good news" story that was anything but for some construction workers who were trying to figure out how to make up for the payday they lost due to the president's visit.

The workers were told not to report to their construction project at a nearby hospital Friday, because the Secret Service was shutting it down for security reasons. They also were told that they would not get paid for the forced day off.


The construction workers were understandably peeved:

"The bosses told us we weren't working because the president is coming, and we are wondering why," construction worker George Harrison told WBNS-10TV. "That's $200 we are missing out on. Everybody needs to eat, right?"


As of yet, there is no confirmation of the rumor that His Awesomness said "Let 'em eat Wagyu Steak" in response to the complaints.
