Greyhound One
The washington Times ^ | Aug. 15, 2011 | Jennifer Harper

Posted on 08/15/2011 9:30:58 AM PDT by lakeprincess

President Obama’s three-day bus tour of the Midwestern heartland already has earned a nickname. It’s “Greyhound One” according to observant wags at Lucianne.com and elsewhere in the conservative blogosphere. Most are irked that Mr. Obama and his strategists have borrowed a page from the tea party playbook. What’s better than a campaign-style bus tour to impart a message of frugality and kitchen-table economics?

But wait. Though the excursion is packaged with humble appeal, it looks like nobody’s sleeping on the bus. The White House has reserved the entire historic Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah, Iowa, and 60 rooms at nearby Luther College, and that’s just one stop on the tour.

well, a bus entourage of thousands is certain to impress the peasants with Barry’s humility and native son, down-to-earth approachability

especially when each stop features exhortations for democrat tax-and-spend snake oil to drive out the tea party hobbit terrorist extremist bomb throwers

I expect a staged incident...someone throws an egg or a rock at the bus, something to that effect. Obie’s mediawhores immediately blame the tea party, the usual hysterics follow 24/7 for weeks....

With so many people under the Obama bus I am surprised the wheels even touch the ground.

Marine One to Air Force One, to The Beast (Limo), hotels, back to the beast, and finally on to the BUS. The most critical element? Get photographed stepping of a real BUS!

The regular folk like a BUS! They think you look hard working stepping off a BUS. Looks like you’ve been traveling all around on it; sleeping, eating and working on it. Damn, nothing’s quite as sincere as a BUS.

I admit I am confused. I know the media is reporting that the secret service “ bought” 2 new armored buses which they say they will use later for the presidential candidates during campaings
but aren’t 0dumbo’s buses different from the SS buses?
I wonder how many buses we paid for for that POS 0dumbo to pretend he is not on a campaign swing

Decorah. Land of those 2-horned helmet-things, block heaters, and 97 (each) Blacks or Hispanics. Great farmland, though. 1st Wal-Mart I ever saw. One of the top 2/3 oddest little college towns I know of. Here comes an Osloesque anti-gun speech, probably with Wagner playing in the background; I wonder if he'll give it in Norwegian. He's going to have to bus in minorities for the photo ops. http://www.polarnopyretusa.com/common/images/products/large/05_enlarged_888x888px/00_main_image/7310012578682.jpg

So Greyhound one is back. We've seen it before: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2333316/posts?page=102

Apologies to Queen:

Another One Under the Bus (To tune of Another One Bites the Dust)

Oh! Let's go!
Greyhound One rolls down K street
Barry’s head hangin’ low
Rush done got the scoop on another old friend
Now that sucka has to go

No time for tears, no time for good byes,
Just jerk him up out of his seat!
Open the doorway, toss him out,
He screams to the sound of the beat

Yeah

Another one under the bus
Another one under the bus
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one under bus
Hey
He's gonna ditch you too
Another one under the bus

Barry knew if he went far not all friends could come along
But hey its cool, he doesn’t miss them when they’re gone
He lets them make him look strong
And then moves on on his own
"You’re my friend ‘til I’m worried
So you better not bring me any heat
Or out the doorway you ass will fly And you too will scream To the sound of the beat"
Look out

Another one under the bus
Another one under the bus
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one under bus
Hey He's gonna ditch you too
Another one under the bus

E-he! Alright!
Hey
Oh take it – Under the bus
Under the bus, hey
Hey Another one under the bus
Another one under the bus, ow
Another one under the bus, he he
Another one under the bus, hay yay ya ya ya
Ooh shout

How many friends have made Barry look bad
And he’s thrown them to the ground?
There’s Bill Richardson, Tom Daschle,
Louis Caldera, William Ayers,
Granny was thrown too, and you know Biden’s soon to follow
Yeah
Van Jones, Father Pfleger and
Reverend Wright have hit the street
Out of the doorway they all flew
As they screamed to the sound of the beat

Another one under the bus
Another one under the bus
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one under bus, yeah
Hey, He's gonna ditch you too
Another one under the bus
