"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

The Truth about Obama's Bus Tour -- A Fake costing the US Taxpayers Millions

Where is the media including Fox News about all of this.  An AP reporter looks to have leaked this information but the illustrious Obama Media is silent.  The White House Reporters who travel with the President look to be part of this scam.  There is not other word for it but scam as the President rode in on the bus for for about one mile from the airport where the C-17 delivered the bus.  All on the taxpayers nickle as King Obama said it wasn't a campaign trip.  What a liar and the media goes right along with it.

This looks like another investigation by Cong Issa as they spent $2.2M on two buses for this sham and the America people got hosed because it wasn't a bus trip at all unless you count a mile at a time and then he gets back on AF One and flies to the next destination.  What was the final cost as the C-17 had to fly to buses to the destination, AF One was used to fly Obama, they paid $2.2M for two buses from Canada, and how many Secret Service vehicles were used for this trip?  It may be the most expensive 3-day trip ever by a President.

Our Obama media has shown they could care less about the truth as they kept reporting on this bus tour.  This Administration has to be the most corrupt ever and the media falls right in the same category -- corrupt who will do and say anything to keep Obama in office.  Shame on everyone who knew about this scam and didn't report.
The so called “Bus Tour” was not a bus tour at all

This is really disgusting! The so called “Bus Tour” was not a bus tour at all! 
An AP reporter said that Obama might have ridden these expensive buses only one mile at each stop. Therefore, it wasn’t really a “BUS TOUR”! Obamaspent most of the “BUS TOUR” on an airplane traveling between stops. Itlooks like Obama has scammed the American people again........with the help of the liberal media. It’s no damn telling just how much this “show” cost the American taxpayer. 
"Greyhound 1".... Secret Service Buys Two New $1.1 Million Buses For Three-Day Trip…
President Barack Obama (C) walks to his bus as he arrives in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Minnesota, August 15, 2011, where he is to begin his three-day bus tour in the Midwest centering on ways to grow the economy. 
He FLYS into an airport somewhere in the midwest, hops into a brand new 1.1 Million $ bus, paid for by you and me, for a “bus tour” ‘around the midwest’, and after an hour or so, gets driven back to the airport for ANOTHER FLIGHT, lands at another airport where another 1.1 Million $ brand new black bus is waiting for him… and repeats all that until his midwest bus‘tour’ is done?? Oh yes......and THEN he leaves on a 12 day vacation to Martha's Vineyard.......to REST UP from this campaign bus tour! 
And don't forget........those brand new shiny black buses aren’t DRIVEN to the location where they meet Obama. Those buses are loaded up on one or more C-17s. Then, they are flown to the destination ahead of AirForce- AND!.......this is REPEATED FOR EVERY CAMPAIGN STOP. On this 'bus tour', the Prez will lecture the 'little people' on how they need to live within their means and cut-back! Remember when very recently Obama told that family man to GO BUY A HYBRID VAN when he said he couldn’t afford to fill up his truck???? Obama's 'carbon footprint' must be as large as most cities by now. 
All of this on the taxpayer's dime.....But remember, this is NOT a campaign trip - it is "Meet with the people" trip only! So that the DNC does NOT pay a cent for all of this.
