    Anyone want to know the definition of "AUDACITY"?

    HERE IT IS!


    Secret Service Buys Two New $1.1 Million Buses for a Three-Day Presidential Campaign Trip while Obama flies ahead of the buses for his campaign stops.




    Obama FLIES into an airport somewhere in the Midwest, hops into one of two brand new $1.1 Million buses, paid for by you and me, for a ”bus” tour around the Midwest' and, after an hour or so, gets driven back to the airport for ANOTHER FLIGHT, lands at another airport, where another $1.1 Million brand new black Canadian bus is waiting for Obama - and then, repeats all that until Obama's Midwest "bus" tour is done!! [These buses are Canadian-built, by the way, because Obama is SO CONCERNED about American manufacturing, creating American jobs and supporting American productivity.]



    And don't forget... those brand new shiny black Canadian buses AREN'T DRIVEN

    to the location where they meet Obama. Oh, no…They are loaded up on one or more C-17s so

    they can be flown to the destination ahead of Obama who is flying in Air Force One.

    AND!.. Believe it or not…this process is REPEATED FOR EVERY CAMPAIGN STOP.


    During this “bus” tour, Obama will lecture the 'little people' on how they need to live within their means while hinting of possible future government cut-backs and a need to raise revenues (aka: taxes)!


    Remember, too, Obama’s “sage advice”to a family man to 'GO BUY A HYBRID VAN'

    when the man said he couldn't afford to fill up his truck'!!!!!!


    Obama's personal 'carbon footprint' must be as large as most cities by now.






    Unbelievably, ALL of this is on the taxpayers’ dime!



    But remember, this is NOT a campaign trip - It is a "Meet With the People" trip only!

    Consequently, the Democrat National Committee does NOT have to pay a cent for all of this extravagant 'campaign' spending.


    Please forward this on to all of your taxpaying and voting friends so that they, too, can see

    just why the federal government needs more of our taxes for revenue!

    Those buses will stay with the SS as part of their Presidential transportation equipment. If Mitt is elected and he uses them I wonder if you'll have the same unfounded rant.

    THe President does not make those choices, the SS does. Previous to the purchase busses were leased and temporarily modified by the SS. The new buses will be used by all SS protectees as required. Do a Google search for Secret Service buses and get the facts. Example quoted here:

    "In the past, when a sitting president has hit the campaign trail, they’ve leased their own campaign bus which the Secret Service would then retrofit with all the latest security features. But no longer, as Talking Points Memo reports that the presidential bodyguards are buying their own bespoke campaign bus, reportedly from Hemphill Brothers Coach Company in Tenn. Secret Service spokesman Jim Mackin explains


    We’ve never been fully comfortable with the security provided by a bus we lease and then try to retro-fit. This would be just like other vehicles we’re adding to our fleet. We’d use them for the campaign, but they’re not for campaign purposes. They would be part of our fleet — just like our limos, just like our follow-ups, just like our emergency vehicles.

    And this isn’t just for President Obama: one of the two new buses will be made available to the Republican candidate as well. And because the buses are government property, they won’t be allowed to have campaign logos and both campaigns will have to reimburse the Secret Service for their use."

    How many times did GW fly his "special busses" to the next stop? Why do you support this a-hole's actions and complete disregard for spending OPM (other peoples money) Did you forget the "vacation" in India at a cost to US taxpayers of $2.5 billion where the dog flew on it's own private jet? How does the UAW feel about Canadian busses?

    A Buss is a kiss; a Bus is something in which you ride around.

    What really should piss a person off is that the tax payer cost for the current president to do his campaigning is a mere fraction of what is spent each day on the interest charge for our national debt. A million bucks is like a penny in this context.

    Twostraight,

    Care to offer a factual reason as opposed to an opinion? You do know that the buses stay with the SS regardless of who is the President? See quote from the SS above.

    Election and re-election costs should be paid for by the candidate .... end of story.

    BTW We elect a President to govern our Country for 4 years .... why should we give him time off from his job to campaign? His re-election should be based on his performance over the past 4 years.

    Enough Shit .... Vote for Mitt!!!

    If there is really such a big security issue with the previous leased bus, then why did the SS not order one for Mitt also? He too gets SS detail!

    Scott,

    Obviously you didn't read this from the SS statement I posted yesterday:


    >>>And this isn’t just for President Obama: one of the two new buses will be made available to the Republican candidate as well. And because the buses are government property, they won’t be allowed to have campaign logos and both campaigns will have to reimburse the Secret Service for their use."<<<

    Eric, you did put it out there and I did not read it completely. Will the SS tell the candidate he must use their bus?
