The above pic says it all. This is Obama’s bus as he rolls thru the country campaigning. Note the observer in the picture is not waving, but giving the middle finger salute. 😀
According to ABC News,”It’s been dubbed “Ground Force One” and now has the official insignia to match its partner in the air.
The jet-black armored motor coach ferrying President Obama from Air Force One in Toledo, across northern Ohio and into Pennsylvania, got an upgrade for its first trip of the 2012 campaign: a large colorful presidential seal emblazoned on its side.
The cosmetic addition since debuting on an official presidential trip through the Midwest in August is a prominent reminder of the bus’s owner (the federal government) and the authority of its top passenger (the president).
So who pays for the bus when it’s used for entirely political purposes?
The Obama campaign will reimburse taxpayers for fuel and operation costs of the bus according to an established formula, an administration official told ABC News.
Obama will travel roughly 270 miles from Toledo to Pittsburgh on Thursday and Friday, averaging six to nine miles per gallon on the drive, according to estimates online from several motor coach manufacturers. The average price for a gallon of diesel fuel in Sandusky, Ohio, Thursday was $3.49.”
The other day Mark Levin observed that while Obama is accusing Romney of outsourcing jobs, he is traveling on a bus made in Canada. What a hypocrit!!!!!
Obama is accusing Romney of outsourcing thru Baine Capital, the company Romney founded. My company is one that is owned by Baine so I looked them up.They are an international conglomerate venture capital company located in countries such as Japan, Australia, Germany ,England, Hong Kong, here in New York and San Francisco and a few others. They own over 200 companies including the one I work for Burlington Coat Factory, Toys R Us , Dunkin Doughnuts, Staples, Sports Authority, Texas Instruments and many others. All these companies are creating jobs for people. A spokesman for Baine Capital recently responded to Obama’s charges saying, “If Obama created half the jobs Baine did he’d be running with it.” 😀
Obama better be careful when he’s taking on an international venture capital conglomerate like Baine.They are very powerful indeed and don’t take anything casually lying down.
