how many miles were they actually in the bus?
You know his armored limos, helicopter and Air Force One are all with him too.
That’s a lot of taxpayer $$$ for campaign appearances
And he refused to pay it back. Such a loser!
Romney/Ryan should have ads picturing their buses, with writing underneath each listing some of the major policy differences. The contrast between the two buses reflects the two parties’ opposite beliefs about the future of our country.
2 . . . Marxist b00bs on the 2012 ‘RAT ticket
Didn’t Obama win Iowa by 10 points in 2008? Why the 3-day bus tour? Is he worried that Romney/Ryan might beat him this year?
Anybody have recent poll numbers from Iowa? Be interesting to see if this obnoxious power trip gets nobama a bump.
How many roads had to be blocked off, how much traffic diverted, how much gas wasted, how many extra cops used while us peasants had to wait for emperor 0bama to ride around in his chariot?
How 'bout "ground hog one"?
Both Rasmussen and NBC News/Marist (both leftist) show Iowa a dead heat, with Obama general approval rating below 50%.
Thanks. All that whooping and hollering and diesel fuel for nothing. Typical nobama.
Have you ever been to Iowa? Traffic jams only happens when someone hits a dear. The bigger question is why is he wasting his time in Iowa?
Methinks that is PRECISELY why he is here....VP Biteme was here a few weeks ago...and now the chief clown visits.
he passed thru my town, and stopped at a local eatery....a co-worker happened to be there...said that bozo walked in, and you could smell the arrogance..he went from table to table, and most people were not happy that he was there.
So, yeah.....I think he is worried about iowa, and wisconsin, and ohio, and (fill in the swing state)
I'm with you concerning. His motives in Iowa - I certainly don't trust him.
