I am sure that the bridge was funded as an earmark. Its possible Obama voted for the bill it was attached to. Its very unlikely he actively supported it. Its possible that he did not know that the bridge was in the bill. That system is one of the things that he is saying he is trying to change. But I don't think that he ever intended to fight that battle bill by bill.
