Time's up Mr. President. Wait, now I need more time

We will have to wait a little longer to find out exactly where the White House stands on reauthorization.
According to Audrey Dutton writing in today’s edition of The Bond Buyer Newspaper
Transportation stakeholders are concerned that the Obama administration has not released a set of reauthorization principles by the time Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said it would.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Transportation said in an e-mail Friday that the department’s staff is “still working on a set of reauthorization principles, but we don’t have a date for their release yet.”
The delay clearly suggests the White House isn’t fully sure of its position. But the White House pushed for 18 months of delay in reauthorization last fall. Surely the administration was sure back then. We are now assembling delays into a pattern. So expect more.
