Yeah. Because this is the first president to ever do this, ever. Right?

I mean - this guy is obviously a damn push over when it comes to politics. He's nothing more than the polar opposite "personality" to Bush.

But these kind of specifics are just silly. Obviously the President of this privately owned corporation known as U.S.S.A is going to have a pimped out ride and jet. That's just the bare basics.

The money going into his own wallet is a different story - and still not even a story applicable to where the real money is draining. In fact, I don't think people have even found the faucet to which it's draining.

This thread is just kind of one of those "Look, the king eats better than us." --- This is not news, it's history.

Love has upped and caught the last (broken-down greyhound) bus for the coast,
curled up in a ball on the cold and lonely threadbared back seat of despair.
All that remains are the tales of loud idiots, full of sound and fury, that signify nothing.

He is no king thinking cap.
He could have easily purchased a better bus that uses the Provost chassis in Oregon. Then sent it to The Hemphill brothers in Tennessee. He then flies out to a select few areas of the country, and proclaims that he is going to get America working again. He is not a king, he is a hypocrite and a liar.

There is no proof he is using tax money on those buses. He very well is using his own money, presidents do get paid you know, and you know they don'y have house payments right? Besides, presidents and presidential candidates raise ALOT of money on fund raisers and campaigning. Its pretty much like being in a rock band. You sell merchandise, ask for donations, etc.


He is definitely using taxpayer money. Look it up. And Bush did NOT use taxpayer money to fund his bus tour.


Oh, never mind. I'll look it up for you:


The writer reports, as the Associated Press has, that the $1.1 million Obama bus was purchased with tax dollars. But he ignores that the bus used by President Bush was leased by his 2004 campaign, using voluntary contributions. There's a world of difference, but why let facts get in the way of yet another effort to cover for the most inept president in history?

Obama: Taxpayer funded bus.
Bush: Campaign funded bus.

Obama has plenty of campaign money. He should have spent THAT on these busses. He claims he is not campaigning, which he thinks makes it okay. But really, do any of us think he is NOT campaigning?

Violator, one big question.

Why do you only give a flying # about America's poor, when you think it gives you an opportunity to slapthe president around?

'Cause I promise you, they're still there when he's NOT buying buses.

Further, what, do you want him to spend tax dollars to help the impoverished? That's called welfare, which if I recall correctly, is a word that sends you into frothy, apoplectic fits of rage.

So what is it you're trying to pull here, chief?

You realize that for most of these posters, bulletproof glass on the president's bus is a drawback right?

This thread would be funny if it were not so sad. The argument being made is so split personality.
First, it is not about the money, it is about the fact that it was Canadian.
Now, it is not about it being Canadian, it is about the money.

Well...which is it?

I imagine that just like everything else, it is different things to different people.

To me, it's the fact that he is spending taxpayer money to do something that clearly should be done with campaign funds.

To others, it's the fact that the bus should be made in America.

Shoot, to some other people, it might even be BOTH reasons!!!!!

The fact that there are MANY reasons to dislike what Obama has done with his bus does not mean "split personality", as you say.

spending 2 million of taxpayer dime and the millions it costs for in security for his "tour" of selling snakeoil to the stupid masses.

or the fact that bus was made in canada


no offense meant to canada but how many americans could have had a job building that thing.

obama has no clue of what it means to be an american and who has any clue of what

FOR AMERICANS BY AMERICANS MEANS.


Your opinion means nothing.

All you do is come in and flame one side while ignoring the faults of the other sides.

Once you start having real and balanced opinions perhaps your words will mean something becuase you obviously ramble about talking points like a GOP robot. Grow up and join us humans.

You are a hack.

OT,

Security has never been an issue before with presidents. We obviously do not want our Pres to get killed.

I am sure some would disagree, but those people are short sided and ignorant.

Hey Georgia girl.

Bush took over 1000 vacation days in his 8 year tenure.

How many has Obama taken?

Was it his idea/request....or was it decided by advisors? I highly doubt the President can/will just up and decide he WANTS a new fleet!

You can't stick the President on a greyhound bus to travel around.

And maybe point it towards a cliff...

I guess we really can't do that.

You are welcome.

I know I'm a bit late to the game...BUT, let me ask the OP one question: Does Obama get to keep the bus when he leaves the White House?

What's that?

No, you say.

Then I fail to see how he has spent $2-million on himself.

Woah ... you showed me.

Sorry I often misspell that word, perhaps I won't again.

Since when has a Libertarian been a President, because that is what I was addressing.

GOP or DEM, I would not condone the death of either president.

So do you have anything other than teaching me how to spell a word a lot of people happen to screw up or is that about it?
