Joe Amtrak Biden and Chief Social Engineer/Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood unveiled the Obama administration’s latest $53 billion high-speed rail boondoggle.

At Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, Biden referred repeatedly to the apparent new White House motto.

Out: Winnning the future.

In: SEIZE THE FUTURE.

Prog-tested. Czar-approved.

Chicago Tribune/LA Times reporter Mike Memoli notes that Biden used the phrase at least three times.

Give him credit for grabby-handed transparency, I guess.

Via The Morning Call (and make sure you are not drinking anything in front of your computer screen when you get to the second sentence):

Speaking from Philadelphia’s 30th Street train station, Vice President Joe Biden joined by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, announced $53 billion over six years for new high-speed rail corridors and increased speeds on existing lines.

Biden, who LaHood called the “conductor of the train to the future” has long been one of Amtrak’s greatest champions. The plan, which Obama will include $8 billion for in his 2012 budget to be released next week, fits with the administration’s message of global competitiveness.

“Let me tell you, if we do not take this step now, if we do not seize the future, you tell me how America is going to have the opportunity to lead the (global) economy in the 21st century like it did in the 20th century,” he said.
