This is pretty hilarious. I wonder how Rat-style medicine tastes to the Rats. It's time to out-Axelrod Axelrod! As one of the commenters said, this ain't the McCain campaign.

Obama’s comment on this: “See? I told you Romney was the candidate of the Honkies!”

Brilliant move by the Romney Campaign.

Now, they just need to get a louder horn and a whole crowd of people with handheld air horns, noisemakers and firecrackers for whenever Obama speaks.

Mitt? Playing “Dixie”?

Romney would NEVER go that far in trying to reach out to the southern base of the GOP, even though they are just now starting to warm to him.

If only by a little bit.

Pretty childish. I know the rats pull this crap... and I hate it when they do it too. Really don't want to see us descend to their level... would rather elevate the conversation. Frankly, let Obama talk... he's burying himself.

“In that case,” said Napoleon, “let us wait twenty minutes; when the enemy is making a false movement we must take good care not to interrupt him.”

It is amusing but there might be a special reason behind this ... who had their speech scheduled first, Romney or Obama? Because the _Resident has a knack of showing up in a time and place already scheduled (e.g. the Dick Cheney speech), effectively honking his horn to try and drown out the other guy. So if this is another case of Obama playing his high school trick of jumping in a time slot already taken, then the bus trick is a wonderfully subtle (dare I say a Kerryesque nuanced?) payback.

I laughed out loud but did not roll on the floor.

I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.

I am less conflicted about voting for Romney as his campaign ramps up. It certainly is refreshing compared to McCANTCAMPain.

I loved this comments (but replace the ‘pig and goat’ sounds with ‘sheep’):

“They should get a horn that plays “God Bless America” that will piss the obama’s off… Or any other patriot song out there.

Star Wars Theme for the Wookie???? or just Goat and Pig noises ?”

If I was on that bus I’d be tee-teeing in my pants I’d be laughing soooooo hard! LOL!

I’m starting to like the Romney campaign. Romney figured out real quick how to get under Newt’s skin. Now he’s going to get under Obama’s. And Obama is very thin-skinned and is easily irritated. If Romney keeps this up, Barry will implode.

What a bunch of clowns. The media will have a field day with this. While I think it is funny the vast majority of the public that is uninformed by the MSM will see this as Romney behaving unpresidential. He needs to stay out of the news.

Excatly - Obama and Axelrod NEVER prepared or planned for this and Romney doing this will get more attention than gaybamas speech - JUST LIKE WHEN ROMNEY WENT TO SOLYNDRA the same day oblah blah gave that stupid speech the same day.

They need to drop off about a dozen clowns, with donughts maybe, and run around with bicycle horns and buckets of confetti. You know pretend like they are throwing water but its really confetti. They could explain later that it was symbolic of waking up the dimwit sheeple.

I think the Romney campaign is listening to Newt’s advice, who said his schedule will be the White House schedule. Except he’s not rebutting Obama’s speeches, he preempting them.

Hilarious?

How about

“Gee, men are dying today in Afghanistan, the entire middle east is a powder keg, Europe is poised to slide the world into depression, millions of Americans are jobless, others are hoarding food, obama drones are patrolling our skies, highways and farms watching all of us.

So.... lets go drive Romney buses around an obama speech and honk horns! So no one can hear the president's lies, just our idiocy!”

Yeah, how mature, how thoughtful, how FUN! How focused on the issues. This will really attract those voters looking for a candidate with the gravitas to save our nation.

I swear, are these Romney men thinking they are smart and funny? Romney’s ICK factor just went up again due to his questionable advisors.

But I’m sure you will then demand he does something when they attack him?

ROFL, Romney wasn’t in the bus. He was campaigning in a different city.

But they are showing to have more balls than 99% of so-called conservatives whom cant even be bothered to show up to a counter rally at an Obama event but will poo poo a RINO for this.

I heard that on Hannity too and was very encouraged. Newt is an unbelievable resource, having been working in republican circles since the ‘64 campaign. And he knows the history that most have forgotten.

I am slowly, very slowly, coming around to maybe casting a vote for mittens (if he keeps this rhetoric up). I am still not - and will never be - convinced he will govern as a conservative.
