Road to Nowhere: Orlando Unveils Barack Obama Parkway

I'm surprised it doesn't have tolls and potholes.

Warning: There are no right turns allowed.
On the same day President Barack Obama will visit Orlando, the city unveiled the first part of a roadway project named after him.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony that showcased President Barack Obama Parkway, near the Mall at Millenia.

Phase I connects President Barack Obama Parkway north of Conroy Road to Metrowest Boulevard, a mile-and-a-half stretch that includes lighting, sidewalks and on-street bike lanes. Shingle Creek Trail, used by pedestrians and bicyclists, was also extended.

Dyer said 150 jobs were created in Phase I of construction, which cost $10.5 million. The city will hire 150 more workers when Phase II begins, he said.
He'll probably brag how a road named after himself created so many jobs.

He's actually in Orlando for the important stuff.
Obama is scheduled to visit Orlando for two separate fundraisers, one of which will be held at prominent attorney John Morgan's house in Heathrow.
While his zombies march past the homes of millionaires in New York, he vists them for cash.

Orlando Parkway? WTF! The next thing you know, they'll award him a Nobel Prize for something. What'll these assholes think of next?
