Obama told his advisers to find him a business that never had problems regardless of the economy, and they found the paving industry. That's right, Obama stimulated an industry that didn't need stimulating, but he forgot to find out the particulars. There are very few "shovel ready jobs" in the paving industry and the only economy he stimulated was Mexico's, as most of the road crews are extremely well-paid green card carriers. You won't get wealthy working a road crew, but you will make a good deal more than minimum wage. So, the lesson learned; the only people Obama has helped have been more Mexicans while treating citizens (whites, blacks, Hispanics, etc) like second class citizens.
