2 million...really?

What a smart shopping president...should have looked at Clintons expenses before starting this thread...2 million is nothing!

Either way Obama has cost us billions not millions....just saying!

$20.8 BILLION spent this year alone in Afghanistan...

And you guys are whining about a measly $2 mil tour bus.

Is it a case of messed up priorities or does everyone have their collective heads up their own asses?

Either way, you guys win the award for manufactured outrage. I haven't seen people get so bent out of shape over nothing since... a few posts ago on ATS.

You know what?? NO this isn't alright. I don't care who is getting what bus. We don't have 2 million dollars to spend on a friggin bus. If you don't us money out of your own pocket then you don't spend it. Has everyone gone crazy? There are actually people in this thread trying to justify why the president, the person that is suppose to be leading this nation by example, is riding around in a $2 mil bus, made in Canada no less(no disrespect to the Canucks brothers and sister). Anyone in government using any kind of taxpayer money on such a frivolous expense should be charged with theft and treason. I don't wanna hear that the president needs to be safe. If we can't afford to PAY OUR BILLS then he can't afford to be campaigning in a tour bus like he's friggin Hannah Montana. This guy actually had the nerve to say he couldn't promise SS check would go out a month ago. This is insanity!!!!!!!!!!

Have to disagree with you on this. The President should spend any amount of money when it comes to security and even the republicans will agree wholeheartedly with this as this issue has come up before. You can't stick the President on a greyhound bus to travel around.



WHY NOT???? Give me a realistic answer as to what a 2 million dollar bus offers that a greyhound doesn't....Other than the obvious luxury components....

Does he not still have a gazillion bodyguards at all times?? This is a luxurious trip around the country for re-election...NOTHING ELSE!!! He could care less about jobs, but that is what he has been spoon feeding us.....IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE....BLA BLA FREAKING BLA!!!!

Rent a car from enterprise and sit in the back seat Mr. President....I want my money put to better use


I disagree with you very much. I don't like Obama, but he is our President, and he should not be riding around in a rental car. Your suggestions is absurd. Hopefully not all Ron Paul fans agree with your unrealistic sentiments.

The douche bag thinks he's a rock star. After all its all the morons that treat him with his "godlike status".

If you ask me, these shmucks (presidents) should'nt be running around the country on election campaigns. He's the president, correct?

Then do your F**kin job and presidentiate biatch.

It is not an off the line bus. It has been implemented with all types of security just like every vehicle the President rides in has. What exactly those measures are is not public knowledge for very obvious reasons. You can bet that the windows are all now bulletproof and things like that however.


Kro, you are a fine example of why this forum needs a "smite" button...

You know what threatens the security of a starving man? Lack of damn food! Maybe if Barry wasn't such a #ty prez he wouldn't need an assault vehicle for a bus.

So you think that a US President shouldn't have security?

I find it interesting how the gas prices decreased right before Beast II was rolled out.
I wonder how many gallons he's going to burn during his tour.

Mr. Obama, you're a disgrace!


EDIT to Add: oh, yeah. And it'll need oil changes along the tour, too. How could I have forgotten about that?

The 2 million dollars was just the beginning of the bill. Wait 'til the tour is complete and we see the entire bill.

lets see


2 mill

canadian made bus

extra security

while many people wondering what to eat and how to pay those bills that are adding up with massive intrest.

vs

can we take the presidential car or too slow you say ?

en.wikipedia.org...(United_States)

"The vehicle fuel consumption is about 8 miles per gallon which on metric system corresponds to around 30 litres/100 km"

lol no ..


"Most details of the car are classified for security reasons"

"The engine is equipped with a Eaton Twin Vortices Series 1900 supercharger system"

"The car is perfectly sealed against biochemical attacks and has its own oxygen supply and firefighting system built into the trunk.[6] Unseen at a glance are two holes hidden inside the lower part of the vehicle's front bumper, which are able to emit tear gas"

"The vehicle can also fire a salvo of multi-spectrum infrared smoke grenades as a countermeasure to a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) or anti-tank missile (ATGM) attack and to act as a visual obscurant to operator guided missiles.[citation needed] This is fired remotely by the USSS countermeasures Suburban which trails the limo and contains the sensors to detect the launch of such an attack"

+ many more features lol

really does gas milege matter when it comes to protecting the president vs the cost of the mammoth bus ?


what about this mr obama ...


set an example for the rest of the united states and show even the president has to do what it takes to live within his means!


so we ...








hook up the presidential car up to a tow truck you sit inside tow truck drives to wherever ...

and just outside city skirts we unload and let you drive in lol


we save gas... you set good example... you get the best security car with all those neat features ....

oh and the rest of your click can ride along in one of these bad boys.....




now nobody really wants to kill your team.. most likely they want you mr president so your safe in the limo on the tow truck...

the rest of the guys get some medium level but still good and very cheap alternative


if you did that mr president i would be like wow .. if my leader would actually do that and sacrafice for the country then who am i to be so selfish

I will follow me commander and cheif into living within my means like a champ!!! lol

I'm not sure what you are referring too, but here in this video, Wolf Blitzer compares Obama with Darth Vader

Maybe if the President had good intentions he wouldn't need to have security. Seeings how this President has anything but good intentions he secures himself with mass amount of our money. If we had a real President he would be using this money for more worthwhile things. That is to good to be true these days though it seems.

Can you name the last president who did not need security?
