Rebranding Obama's buscapade
Politico44 ^ | 08/15/11 | JULIE MASON

Posted on 08/15/2011 12:12:15 PM PDT by ColdOne

Obama arrived in Minnesota earlier today. "I am very pleased to be out of Washington," he said.

White House press secretary Jay Carney bridled at the notion that the three-day bus tour, which traverses three battleground states Obama won in 2008, had anything to do with the fact that he’s struggling to maintain support in those states ahead of the 2012 contest.

Carney said it was ridiculous to suggest that “anytime the president leaves Washington, it’s campaigning,” and that Obama was “doing what presidents do, going out into the country.”

Have not seen much on the “Obama” political bus tour. The folks at the first stop did not seem to be too energized as i viewed a few moments of the live video!!! And....Obama did not seem up to giving an electric performance. Plus, i do not think many folks were there!!! I guess that’s why the media isn’t getting the message out!!! We’ll see a bit later in the day!!!

The Lie-Stream Media has been hyping Obama’s bus tour. Slavishly drooling over how quickly this recent one “sold out”...

But apparently, the crowds are not coming to *praise* Obama...

His hyped bus tour, appears to be backfiring, and the Press is doing voice overs all over his speeches, and hiding the fact that no one is clapping his applause lines. At least not mor than tepidly, and it’s speaking volumes.

“The Voice” ain’t got no “Barry white” to him any more. (smirk)

Bet he cuts his “listening tour” short.

I would not be caught dead at any one of his “appearances”.

Interesting for a tax payer funded trip, he seems to have time to berate “the other party” for not sending forward a clean bill raising the debt limit...sounds to me like political rhetoric but what do I know.

What do you mean by “sold out”??? Is this a campaign fundraiser??? If so, why are we, the taxpayers paying the tab for our failed POTUS Obama’s bus tour!!! As for the media, their days of covering up and over for Obama are gone!!! I have a hopeful feeling that things are not going as planned by Obama!!! Shucks, everything and everyone he touches gets destroyed or ruined or.....thrown under the bus!!!!

We would never suggest that. We know that most of the time it is to golf.

There would have been 29 lawsuits against Bush... calls for an Independent Council... and the House would have brought charges against him.

The auditorium is not a Tardis. It has a set number of seats.
If I remember correctly, it’s the larges forum in the area, and it requires tickets to attend. Your guess is as good as mine, as to how these tickets were apportioned and disseminated.

Yes, that is an insult to the intelligence, but that won't have any impact on Obama's supporters.

Another thread says NObama drew 500 people at one of his stops.

There was a party for the finish of a Northern Calif Wagon Train Sat night—the 6th. It had more than 500 people there & is was in rural N Calif!!!!!

Okay, it's not campaigning. It looks ridiculously like campaigning and it sounds ridiculously like campaigning, but it not campaigning.

When Zero's pissing on my back and telling me it's raining---that's not campaigning, either. But that's what he's doing.
