Official: Obama to embark on bus tour of NC, VA


Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A White House official says President Barack Obama is planning a bus tour through the politically importantstates of North Carolina and Virginia later this month to push for his jobs plan.

The trip is scheduled for Oct. 17-19, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of a formal announcement.

The trip will be similar to a three-day bus tour through Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois the president went on in August.

Obama is intent on keeping up the pressure on Congress over his jobs proposal, a message the White House believes can resonate with the public, and he often picks states that could be important for his 2012 re-election chances. North Carolina and Virginia are both traditionally Republican states that Obama won in 2008.

Magical Mystery Tour

It will take more than a bus trip it will take A Magical Mystery Tour for Zero to get reelected in 2012.... The idea that you can ride around in a bus you bought in Canada. And that you actually fly it in so you look like one of the folks is a joke when you're killing thousands of Boeing jobs just down the road in Charleston.
This country is through if this Communist gets reelected.

President's Bus Trip To NC

Not again...nothing he's promised since 2007 has come to pass. The only thing that he's done is sneak in more taxes, destroy small businesses, increase the power and wealth of the unions, increase the national debt, increase spending, create inflation, promote the non-capitalist agenda ='s socialism ='s communism...among a variety of other negative results...he calls this C H A N G E. And we want to hear more on a bus trip? I don't think so.

Perhaps you should educate yourself. Let's start with the blackout of fallen soliders returning home. The families ask that he not bring media, he did so anyway. The recovery act, did not produce jobs.. as a matter of fact the reason his own party will not vote on the Jobs Recovery Act is due to the failure of the recovery act.

So, today educate yourself about this man...before it's too late for all of us.


Please just stay in D.C. Have you not done enough traveling on the tax payers dime? Fix the mess you created.
