We're flattered the liberals think the idea is really keen! Since it's ‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬, it's also pretty keen to thank the democrats for taking a page out of our playbook and also to share the picturesque, sincere, no-media "One Nation" RV trek of ours a few years ago.

    The overall campaign slogan for President Barack Obama's re-election effort is Forward as in please don't look back at my record because I've failed miserably. His current two-day bus tour of northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania has a slogan too: Betting on America as in I'm betting I can get enough Americans to fall for empty promises and meaningless platitudes again in spite of my miserable record. At his first stop in Maumee, Ohio, our Candidate-in-Chief told the crowd, "I'm betting you're not going to lose interest. I'm betting you're not going to lose heart. I still believe in you,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is ramping up a fresh phase of his re-election bid with a bus tour next week, focusing more on direct engagement with voters and less on ritzy fundraisers. Obama's two-day road trip through Pennsylvania and Ohio, two key battleground states in the November election, kicks off July 5, a campaign official said. It will be the president's first bus tour of the 2012 campaign.

Perry has scheduled nearly 50 events between Wednesday and Jan. 2. By the time the tour ends, he will have visited some 42 towns and cities. Being on a bus in a state like Iowa, it just allows...

  • The Obama Bus Fraud

    Almost eclipsed by the PR disaster of his lavish vacation at Marthas Vineyard was the PR debacle of President Obamas listening tour, in which he blasted through small towns in a gigantic motorcade dominated by two million-dollar Canadian buses, pausing to give political speeches before hand-picked audiences. Although clearly a part of Obamas 2012 re-election campaign, this was all funded by the U.S. taxpayer, and the expense was enormous. It turns out it might have been even more enormous than we thought, because the whole bus tour was a gigantic fraud. As related by Rob Port at Say Anything: White...

    President Obama has been touring all over the midwest these past few weeks, giving speeches to crowds of fans, anxious to hear whats next on his agenda. One could be forgiven for believing that these are less about pushing the presidents current agenda, and more about launching the reelection campaign, however this is a charge that the administration adamantly denies. But there is a very simple reason that this is viewed as more of a campaign effort. Boasting bulletproof windows, five inch thick doors, and its own oxygen supply, the President has made the rounds for these speeches in a...
