Obama takes bus tour to connect with average Americans
The Christian Science Monitor / The Associated Press ^ | June 27, 2012 | Julie Pace

President Barack Obama is ramping up a fresh phase of his re-election bid with a bus tour next week, focusing more on direct engagement with voters and less on ritzy fundraisers.

Obama's two-day road trip through Pennsylvania and Ohio, two key battleground states in the November election, kicks off July 5, a campaign official said. It will be the president's first bus tour of the 2012 campaign.

The bus trip also will coincide with the release of the monthly nationwide jobs report, a key economic indicator that could directly affect the president's re-election prospects...

Politicians do some weird **** when an election is coming up. They even grace “the little people” with their presence so we can kiss their feet.

He’d “connect” with below average Americans too but they don’t have any money to make political donations.

I’ve always wanted to take one of those tours. They say Jack Benny lived right across from George Burns and Groucho Marx just down the street. Lots of big mansions in Beverly Hills I hear.

Will this be one of the million dollar buses that Obama used last year, that was bought from Canada, supposedly two were brought, one for each candidate...

...is this one of those things where the bus drives to the location then Obama arrives on Air Force 1, gets on the bus and drives to the rally?

My recollection is that on the last bus tour, Obama would fly from place to place and then hop on the bus near the final stop so that he could pop out of the bus a few minutes later and say “This bus tour has just been great!”

I’ll bet they’ve got them all shined up and waiting for him at the city limits to take him into town where the “average Americans” dwell.

I think that's the only kind of trip he takes. They may also airlift the bus!

He can never connect with the average person. BHO is so below average they (the average person) would have to drive a spike in their brains in order to lower themselves to his level.

that was bought from Canada

He will be trumpeting Romney outsourcing while driving a Canadian bus.
That should go over well.

Actually, TOTUS does not understand the term ‘outsourcing’ so the new word is ‘offshoring’.

If you haven’t noticed Obama is QUICKLY losing any friends and support he might have had. In other words ... “OBAMA will soon be a thing of the past!” OBAMA is now TOXIC and maybe (Let’s Pray) won’t make it to the DNC convention.

PS Might want to start collecting Obama memorbilia and sell it (if YOU can) on e-bay.

HE DID THIS BEFORE:

It later turned out he had NEVER been on the stupid bus —it was a folksy PROP.

Kardashian was flying into all the stops, and just pulling up inside the hokey, earnest bus for the cameras.

That would have been over a year ago. The truth came out about 3 months later.

HIM ride in a bus, wow, that is RICH.

Yep. I haven’t looked at the thread for a bit, anyone post a pix of a little yellow bus. That’s the kind of tour he should be taking.
People say he is evil, I really am beginning to think he is nearly retarded. Without the teleprompter or a memorized speech he is a blithering idiot, which is why his speeches are the same over and over and over......pretty common speech pattern of those who are mentally challenged.

Is there any doubt how that jobs report is gonna look. I suppose they are gonna 'disappear' another 300,000 workers....

Obammy is running on empty.

His funds are being spent faster than they are coming in, pretty soon he will be standing on a street corner with a sign.

If the angel of death had wheels, it would look like the Obama beast bus. A mobile Carousel, as it were.

The destroyer knew exactly what he was doing/symbolizing when ordering this demonic-looking corpse coach.
