Rolling Blunder
The Washington Times ^ | Aug. 16, 2011 | Jennifer Harper

Posted on 08/16/2011 7:56:56 AM PDT by lakeprincess

More nicknames have emerged for President Obama’s heartland bus tour: Rolling Blunder, Bus Force One, Running on Empty, America Under the Wheels, Hell on Wheels, Beast Bus. All courtesy of talk radio, the conservative blogosphere, fierce Republicans and — astonishingly enough — National Public Radio, which came up with the Beast Bus.

“The debt end bus tour … and a president who is really the campaigner-in-chief here of America. All he’s doing is campaigning,” says Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

It’s what Darth Vader would look like, if he were turned into a bus.

If its supposed to be a “listening tour”, as the Dems say, someone should just clock how much time is consumed in taking questions vs the same old, same old stump speech time used up by Fog Horn.

This bus tour is really looking like a PR disaster. And well-earned. It’s shockingly dumb. Three years in and he’s out looking for ideas??? Wow.

I was thinking in an opposite direction - If it were a Transformer(tm), it would transform into Darth Vader.

I’d bet someone here could animate such, I just don’t know which FReeper to contact.

It is energy efficient. It runs on all the swamp gas of the main occupant.

I wonder if it has a little exhaust vent where he smokes his butts at?

These buses are the kind that VIPs are transported in the 3rd world to protect them......so it makes me think that the President was successful in turning the US into the 3rd world.

I must say, I have to agree wholeheartedly with the huge bumper sticker on the red bus: “Ruling Class is the Enemy.”

Good idea. I don’t have the technical skills, but if I happen across some talented FReeper, I’ll pass on the idea.

I don't care what you call the bus tour, I believe it has provided a midwestern stimulus in the sale of eggs, and created a market for rotten tomatoes.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus

One of the many, many problems the GOP has, a Chairman who from his name you would guess was the Vice-Minister for Student Grants in the French Cabinet.

At some point during this charade he will come out and say, "Hey, the bus doesn't use as much gas as Air Force One. I'm doing my part to solve climate change." Last year he would have flown.

Obama to aide (as the bus pulls out from his Minnesota stop):

“Can you imagine that people actually LIVE here? There's no tall buildings, the public transportation isn't like Chicago's, everything so flat and featureless out here — no wonder it's called ‘flyover country’. This like being on the other side of the moon. Yuck.”

Obummer looks like he’s put on a little weight on his bus tour...or is he wearing a padded vest under his clothes in case some crazy is making plans to put him out of his misery? Which candidate ever before needed an “armored” bus, and a state of the art “armored” car (”the beast” which travels with him world wide)...just shows ya’ feelings are running high against the usurper. IMO, there will be no more styrofoam Greek pillars on his campaign trail...it’ll be bulletproof glass, body armor, and armed guards.
