What the [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] does Obama have to do with BART to Stoneridge?????BART was scheduled to go there long before Obama was even a Congress man...get out of your Pleasanton bubble and get real...many kids in Pleasanton are and do exactly what this kid did...because they have no direction or discipline but live a life of give me, give me, give me and their parents do without even thinking
I was on the freeway when this [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] came speeding by and almost hit and killed a few people...there was road construction and he flew right through it throwing orange cones everywhere and had cars trying to get out of his way it was quite scary.
THANK YOU to the CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL for catching him I only hope he gets more than a slap on the wrist for his wreckless endangerment of the construction workers and the rest of us on the freeway...Job well done

Me thinks "law & order" & "law & disorder" are one in the same? & has a serious disorder...maybe take time for a nice nap and some hot chocolate to help become happy wappy? Not to be picky (oh go ahead) but you need spell check and a better education. I don't like Obama but why does he even show up in this so-called discussion and like it is said, what the heck does BART have to do with stolen cars in WC & Obama? Egads!!

Totally agree with Michael, Grace & Gary - Obama has nothing to do with this situation. But there are certain people who try to apply that "let's just plug in our default answer - blame Obama" without looking at either the issue at hand and/or the bigger situation. There's a great cartoon out there by Ed Stein - entitled $4 gas that totally reflects this exact dynamic. It depicts a guy wearing a Drill Baby Drill button and he first says :"Alternative Energy - that's a pipe dream"....then he says - "Higher Mileage Standards - the government can't tell me what to drive"...next he says: "Mass transit - that's a waste of my tax dollars"....then in the last frame he's standing in front of a gas pump - and he says "$4 gas - It's all Obamas fault."

@jamie the solyndra project was in the works long before obama was voted into office, and it is very likely, though thankfully we will never know, that the outcome would have been the same had a republican been voted into office. As far as BART goes, it has been around since 1972, I think Obama wasnt even a teenager yet, so how the hell is it his fault?
