About Obama’s bus tour

Is it just me, or does the bus tour make Obama look like a Palin wannabe?  Also, do you think the visuals are going to be good when (if my predictions are accurate), he’s met by no crowds or small, angry crowds, as opposed to Sarah’s huge, enthusiastic crowds?

Whoever came up with this idea sounds to me like a candidate for a good firing.

    No problem. A caravan of SEIU buses will precede the POTUS into each stop, providing the POTUS with large, enthusiastic crowds wherever he goes.

    The MS stylesheet  brouhaha is what one has come to expect from copying and pasting a comment from a MS Word doc. The only copying and pasting I did from  a MS Word doc was for my password when logging in.

    Two armor-plated buses @ $1.1 million each – Nah, I don’t think he’s expecting adoring fans.
    Who better than Obama to take everybody for a “ride”.

  • Charles Martel

    Let’s remember the psychology at work here: If the tour is a success (doubtful), The One will take credit for it. If not, the little red diaper kid who came up with the idea will be—wait for it!—thrown under the bus.

    Excellent Hammer. You out-punned Sadie.  Relish it, but it’s bound to be a one-off, so don’t let it go to the teste.

    Charles Martel axcels at puns.

  • Michael Adams

    Way to Hammer the puint home!

  • Charles Martel

    Mike, you’re right. I’m gonna live off that one for punths.

  • SADIE

    That’s it – you’re both been flagged down and given a punking ticket for driving into a punking spot.

    I agree with Gringo.  They’ll turn out crowds for him.

    “We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again,” Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. “But over the last six months we’ve had a run of bad luck.” Obama listed three events overseas — the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises — which set the economy back.
     
    And on that note…none other than, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes – Enjoy!

    It wasn’t an angry crowd by any imaginative stretch, but it was one self-assured TEA Party activist who asked a Joe Plummer question about whether or not Vice President Biden had called members of the TEA Party “terrorists” during the debt ceiling debate that Obama did not handle well.

    First, Obama denied Joey Plugs even said the TEA Prtyers were “terrorists” and finally, resorted to the ‘compared to what people say about me’ defense that just makes Obama look like a child.

    He’s just doing this to make Americans spend more on his gas.

    >>the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises — which set the economy back.>>

    Riiight.

    Of course, Bush had 9/11 and Katrina, but who’s counting. When it happens “overseas”, it’s just bad luck, I guess. No presidential input required.

    When it happens on _American_ soil … that’s when the managing president can be accused of being ineffective and deficient. I guess that doesn’t fall into the “luck” category.

    The copycat nature of the bus tour also jumped out at me when first I heard of it.

  • Zhombre

    Pathetic.   That was my first thought too, Book, that Obama tooling around Iowa in a Darth Vader inspired bus (with its Texas deflectors installed at the last minute) in the wake of Palin and on the heels of the Republican straw poll in that state, was copycat stupid.  Then he reverts to stump speeches and a string of ludicrous comments including how he saved the country from recession but got stymied by the Arab spring, Japanese tsunami and Euro debt crisis.  What incredible, appalling rubbish.  And there remains a substantial chunk of the electorate loyal to this Empty Suit.

    “…Obama look like a child.”      
     
    Never send a child to do a man’s job – particularly if he’s a sullen narcissistic child.

    Waving “hello” or waving “good-bye”?

    Let’s try that again:

    Waving “Hello” or waving “Good-bye!”?

    You’ve exceeded the maximum allowance for number of consecutive comments, Danny.

    Snarky, Ymar.  Still feeling the burn of being the most egregious multiple consecutive poster, eh?  ;-)
