One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!
Though, quite frankly, I’m not even sure what the goals were of the tour to start with. Boost his sagging ratings? Restore faith in his leadership? Solicit additional support for his re-election campaign?
I must admit I didn’t follow it closely, but I saw enough news clips to know that he was confronted more than once by Americans concerned about where we are heading. And that he promised a new jobs plan (after his 10-day vaca at Martha Vineyards).
But if nothing else, the Obama Bus Tour did inspire some fun, witty things to break up the hot days of August.
The Bus Obama’s Entourage was in? NOT Made in America.
Post at Right Hook 38:
“That’s just perfect. Obama said in his speech in Holland, Michigan last week, that he wants more cars and products stamped with the words “Made in America”. But he special orders a $1.1 million bus from Canada..” read more
And then a local talk show host from my neck of the woods invited callers to call in to the program with their names for Obama’s Bus Tour. The host was playing off of Mitt Romney’s comment, calling the it “The Magical Misery Tour.”
Some of the names that were called in made me laugh (Until I remembered we were paying for this pseudo-campaign tour):
“The Short Bus Economic Tour”
“The HA! HA! I Made You Stop Talking About My Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Tour”
“The Throw America Under the Bus Tour.”
“The Road to Nowhere Tour.”
And a favorite: “The Farewell Tour.”
And then there was a suggestion for a bumper sticker on the big, gas-guzzling bus:
“MY OTHER CAR IS AIR FORCE ONE.”
Your comments, whatever they may be, are always welcome. But if you’d like to play Name the Obama Bus Tour, I’d love to read your suggestions!
