Ridiculous R10. The fall alone would have killed them.

Here's the link, since R9 decided to pointlessly comment on it, but not direct us to the live video.

A bridge collapses in D.C and it't not on CNN? It didn't happen.

false flag. also, weather machine caused a weakening of the bridge.

Is that the main bridge which takes you towards Snoqualmie Falls and on to Spokane?
|by Anonymous||reply 16||05/23/2013|
It has begun.

It's about 60 miles north of Seattle.

The bridge isn't very high over the river and the river doesn't appear to be very deep (the cars aren't even submerged), so R10 is NOT being ridiculous.

So... there was this bill in Congress, supported by Democrats and the President, which would have fixed this bridge (and hundreds, even thousands of others) before they collapsed -- far cheaper than a rush to replace a collapsed bridge -- and in the process would have created millions of jobs, and reduced the unemployment rate by at least one full percentage. And it was completely paid for (it wouldn't have increased the deficit a dime).
The Republicans filibustered and killed it. The House won't even vote on it.
BLAME THIS ON THE REPUBLICANS. MAKE NOISE. LET NOBODY FORGET WHO'S FAULT THIS IS.

I hope they get the bodies out ASAP or this could really mess up the morning commute.

OMG! I drove over that bridge in 1999! That could have been me!

I've ridden across that bridge, and I have friends who cross that bridge regularly.
The fucking Republicans & Congress are playing with our lives and the lives of our friends and family... all to spite Obama and to give more money to the ultra-wealthy.
Vote those fucking treasonous assholes out in 2014!

Hopefully, the new bridge will include a nice caftan around its bottom.

It would be nice to see people, our President especially, call out the politicians who blocked the bill to fix this bridge. It would be nice to see Obama get angry and put up a real fight against these assholes. Of course that won't happen. Nothing will happen. Everyone will forget and move on, as always.

Or it will be like Benghazi, the Republicans who voted against funding for increased embassy security are yelling the loudest about why the embassy wasn't protected. Our ineffectual president will sit around with his thumb up his butt and let them get their licks in.

Even though I fully blame Republicans for cutting and blocking infrastructure repair spending that is vitally necessary... the fact that this bridge collapsed when an over-sized truck rammed into it, and that it wasn't on the list of bridges to be fixed means it'll be difficult to hang this around GOP necks like I so desperately want to.

When I read about this at 5am this morning, Ichecked Google Maps and found the map had already been updated to show the discontinuity on the Interstate.

Unfortunately we can't blame this one on the Repukes..but the truck driver with the oversized load and the trucking company will be put out of business over this.

Gasoline taxes don't keep bridges standing when their support beams are hit by a truck carrying an oversized load, R47.

Since Republicans think they can blame all of Bush's failures on Obama, along with a whole lot of other things that Obama has had nothing to do with... I think I'll continue to just loudly blame this on Republicans in Congress.
Turn-about is fair play, right?
STUPID FUCKING REPUBLICANS CAUSED THIS BRIDGE COLLAPSE WITH THEIR STUPID OBSTRUCTION AND LIES!
