In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Obama’s Frightening Bus Tour

If you have children, don’t let them see this. Put on one of the Friday the 13th movies for them and watch it yourself.

This is some great video of the Obama Spookymobile cruising through some town in Minnesota. As a reporter I’ve seen and been in a lot of presidential motorcades, and I’ve never seen anything this long. There must be an army of secret service along for the ride – undoubtedly a good idea – as well as a slew of White House staff.

Looks expensive.

Thanks to Granny Jan who blogs at Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty for flagging the video.

  1. Present-dent Barry Oblamo on his Magical Misery Bus tour of finger pointing and blame casting. The buck never stops anywhere near Barry Oblamo.

  2. What an incredible waste of tax payer money. Just who does this inept, hubris fool think he is fooling? Never in my life have I seen such a display. It looks like something from the Terminator movies.

    Obama needs to be impeached! Counting the days until November 2012.

    PS: I think this “tour” is pathetic and obviously not resonating with the voters. They see it for what it is.

  3. I wonder what Obama’s carbon footprint is going to be after this… this…Obamanation Bus Tour? He has the nerve to tell us to drive smaller cars! Remember when he mocked a man who had a large family and needed a large vehicle?

  4. Service needs to get motorcade Dave out of retirement! He and I ran motorcades larger than this for Clinton, but at least we had driver discipline. This one looks like a bunch of rank amateurs!  

  5. Three buses…let me guess, two are decoys because he thinks the people are so stupid that they won’t see which one he gets on. Taxpayer funded campaign stops. Wonderful.

  6. It is simply a demonstration of power where Obama shows the gun clinging God fearing middle America that he can go wherever he wants and you’all better get out of the way,….better yet, get on yur knees!

  7. In july this year Minnesota was too “broke” to keep the Parks and Roadside Rest Areas open (any whatever else) – but now in August they can afford to put all this security support on the road? Not to mention, 40% of all this Federal cost is money borrowed (or worse , just printed – call it quantitative easing).

  8. This Kenyan Klown is the biggest joke since I don’t know what! Preaches conservation and then rides around in a bus which looks like a moving brothel. Tells us to drive Volts and his bus gets .5 miles per. How anyone can vote for him is mystery. All he does is blames others for his own failures. He is the president (darn it) and is responsible for what happens except that he always says someone else caused him to fail. If you fail Kenyan it is only because you were not and never will be prepared to serve in that capacity. People were stupid in 2008 and hopefully they will come to their senses in ’12. I think you are done!

  9. The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him th

  10. Yes, he is campaigning. More significantly, I think that as Mr. Obama drives through America, he is still trying to get a handle on exactly what he is president of…

  12. I counted 15 Minnesota State Trooper vehicles, 1 municipal ambulance, and 24 (assuming to be federal) SUVs and minivans, 1 command center (black RV that went by first) and Obama’s RV (the second, red one). That’s seems a bit like overkill to me.

  13. 40 vehicles at least pass through the camera – 10-13 of them are large vans/suvs – 2 buses – 1 ambulance – and the rest police cruisers. This is nuts and a huge waste. Why hasn’t anyone id’d the amount of waste integral in this “jobs” tour. No job is being created in this tour.

  14. I was okay but not sold on the whole bus trip thing, they did sell it as a “listening tour” unitl I heard the clip of the interchange between the Iowa guy and Obama who quipped with superior disgust to his unscripted question: “you’re just not ready to listen are you?”

    Now I know the purpose of the trip, the cohesively fawning crowds and the ability of Obama to orate without tele-prompter-the whole thing is a staged event with which to confer campaign benefit.

    Hey Obama, I’m out.

  15. I have to wonder how long it will take the Company that built these 2 buses to receive full payment for their services.

    The Government is famous for holding off payment as long as they can.

    It would be interesting to see the payment history for the 2 buses.

    NObama in 2012

    1. When was the purchase order for these 2 buses submitted to the builder. You just don’t build these in a couple of weeks. How long has this “jobs listening tour” been in the works?

  16. Every time Oblama gives another one of his teleprompter recitals, bus-tour setting or otherwise, he simply reaffirms his pitiful lack of suitability for the position that he holds. Notwithstanding the fact that the man is the hypothetical president/leader of our Nation, Oblama is congenitally incapable of accepting the miserably failed consequences of his Marxist policies; and, is inexorably compelled to accuse any convenient target, real or imaginary, for his own abject failures. If Oblama was forthright in his quest for a solution to the economic malaise that has descended over America since his inauguration, he would have ONLY to roll-back every single economic policy constriction, from the systematic crippling of our energy sector -to- the elimination of the ObamaCare hangover; and, the American economy would SOAR. Entrepreneur after entrepreneur has attempted to explain to Oblama that they CANNOT risk the financial liability of business expansion under the overhanging guillotine of his repressive policies. Barack, reared in the Marxist dialectic since birth, is simply congenitally incapable of accepting the fundamental mechanics of a vibrant free-enterprise capitalistic system; and, innately resorts to a pontification on the essentiality of Government intervention in every phase of the economic process. A resuscitation of the American economy so long as Oblama is resident in the WH is a foregone IMPOSSIBILITY. Greg Neubeck

  17. A coup d’etat started in 2008 with the presidential election.

    Obama is the acting president. He disappeared for 2 weeks after his election win only to reappear looking exhausted sitting next to John McCain, with a bad poker face, for a press photo shoot. Obama was turned into a puppet for the Pentagon.

    Osama Bin Laden appears to be a code created by the New World Order. The NWO consists of some of the richest people in the world with the goal of overthrowing the US government, some from inside our own government. They are also trying to collapse our currency and appear to be behind all of the “buy gold” hype, not to mention tens of thousands of money making opportunities online and late night infomercials. They’re positioned to make billions by destroying our economy.

    The attacks on 9/11 appear to be attacks on capitalism and part of the plan to an all out overthrow of our system of government. The people that make up the New World Order are media moguls, CEO’s and many others elitists. The coup d’etat is also the reason why the CEOs who ran in the last midterm didn’t get elected and why the republicans are taking over.

    You will not read about this in the media. Most of the media now has been forced to cooperate or have been paid to cooperate.

    Here’s what Osama, Obama, Biden, Bin Laden, the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists, and Sarah Palin had to do with the last election and the military’s overthrow of our government. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

  18. Hmmmm, wonder how much gas was used for this stupid BS, and this man had the audacity to say WE use to much gas for families of 10 or more and own and SUV? Wake up, this guy is like a tick on a dog.

  19. Amazing. This clown and his brigade are such an embarassment that there are no sufficient words to describe. Everything they do is so blasted staged it is rediculous. Makes Clinton look like an amateur.

  20. Soooo…ObaMao lectures American citizens to drive lawn-mower-engine-driven “cars” while he travels in this monstrosity, not to mention the SUV’s, the police vehicles (NOT 6 cylinder), etc etc he commands accompany him.

    Get this moron out of office!!

  21. What a freaking joke. He’s trying to look like the regular folk? And then they reserve entire hotels.
    This is a good example of your tax dollars at work.
    Is anyone reading this happy about this situation?

  22. The funniest part of this is all the official cars, black SUVs, buses, press vans, police cars — and then right in the middle is an old silver Grand Am.

  23. Bus tour is usually a staged affair to appeal to the “common” man… who might ride the bus himself. But … if it is like most of them…a mile or two out of town, he will get off the bus and then helicopters to the next town…and meet the caravan just outside the next town. It is all for show, all a farce, and all a waste of time and taxpayer money.

    Not campaigning? Ha…

  24. So very wrong on so many different levels. What does it say about this fool that he has to travel in what is essentially a heavily armoured tank trailed by a motorcade filled with fawning sychophants.

    No wonder we are in such a mess.

  25. I don’t know if this bus trip was Obama’s idea, or the product of his “handlers”, but it is unmitigated gall in its execution. Here we have the in-your-face that typifies this administration. Just how did all the vehicles and freeloaders get to Iowa, Minnesota etc? On various Air Force 1-2-3’s? He has the same twaddle he has been spouting for the last year. And the “I’ve gotta plan I’m going to let you know soon” stuff is getting to be ludicrous. This “tour to listen to the American people ” is a sham. Now tell me again, just when does he and the family leave for Marths’s Vingard? I know he’ll be exhausted after this grueling trip.

  26. Now we understand why Obamanuts insists on ‘revenue enhancements’ (that means ‘taxes’ for those of you from the liberal left who voted for this fraud). You can bet this obvious campaign trip with federal funds will not raise an attorney general’s eyebrow. This man thinks we are all dumb as rocks. Can’t wait until HE is in the unemployment line January 2013. Tea anyone?

  27. Barry’s magical bus tour looks like a flop to me. The Black ops motorcade looks very ominous for the Great Leader. I have a running bet with a colleague that this Pres chooses to bow out in 2012. Some excuse will be made. Unless the Hawaiian Dept of Health can offer a compelling reason for defying a Federal subpoena to inspect his vault BC on September 14th, the jig is likely up!
