Alternator Belt Cut on Romney Bus
pjmedia.com ^ | July 9th, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 07/10/2012 10:25:34 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

The Romney team today confirmed grass-roots reports that a campaign bus was sabotaged by an unknown vandal over the weekend.

The bus, which was being used for campaign events but not transporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was parked in Richmond, Va., when the vehicle was tampered with late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

A Romney campaign official told PJM that the alternator belt was cut. Repairs were under way Monday to get the bus back on the road for a voter registration event in Springfield, Va., from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Springfield Metro Commuter Lot.

A “Moms for Mitt” mobile phone bank that had been scheduled for 11:30 a.m. this morning in Leesburg, Va., had to be canceled because of the disabled bus.

Knowing how the Dem thugs operate....I’m surprised they didn’t cut the brake line as well.

What are the Vegas odds it was just another typical commie union thug?

PERFECT!
1. Tell Secret Service ‘protection’ to either get their asses out of the local whorehouses and do their job, or
2. Fire them since they’re obviously incompetent and hire private security contracts, of which there are plenty and who could put the SS to shame

Not only does one need a gas tank lock but he should get a hood lock as well and keep several extra tires on hand...

A hood lock will only keep the battery from being stolen. Buses don’t have hoods anyway, more like access panels.

But no need to even open a panel to disable a bus. They need to be kept in secure storage, or guarded 24/7 if the candidate will be using it.

Alternator Belt Cut on Romney Bus

Hmmmmmm . . . . . . we need to find out where Bush 43 was that night!! After all, since Bush and Cheney blew up the dike in New Orleans that caused the flooding after Katrina AND they set fire to the WTC when the two jets were flown into them, Bush MUST have done it!!

But,it also sounds like something little green men from Mars would do.

Whom to blame, whom to blame?? Zero will pop a vein trying to spin his way out of this!

I guess this means his Secret Service coverage has begun.

Right on. The perp could have easily wired in an IED instead of just cutting a belt.

It seems rather fitting... considering how Romney talks outta both sides of his mouth, the bus shouldn't need an alternator. ;)

Heh...

Best thing that could have happened...

Mitt actually does something useful and becomes a martyr, then we replace him with an actual NON-socialist, conservative at the convention.

WIN / WIN.

I thought Obama bought two busses so that people under the protection of the Secret Service could use one of the Obama busses.

I used to have a neighbor who was a Democrat and a Teamster, and this was Standard Operating Procedure. He would carry out petty bits of sabotage like this and then he and his Teamster Thug buddies would go to their union hall and get falling-down drunk laughing about it.

Don’t even get me started on the Teamsters. We were terrorized by them when I was growing up.

I now have a neighbor who is an SEIU Purple Shirter and I see all kinds of strange activities going on around his garage at night.
