Obama’s Taxpayer-Funded Bus Tour

Daily Caller has the details.  Here’s a sample:

President Barack Obama used a taxpayer-funded Monday bus trip to Cannon Falls, Minn., to repeat his now common claim that Republicans put their party ahead of the nation’s interest during the July dispute over the federal debt ceiling.

“Some in Congress would rather see their opponents lose than America win … we can’t have patience with that kind of behavior anymore,” Obama told a crowd estimated at 500 supporters.

All class, this guy.  I seem to recall a time when it was the very worst sin imaginable to question someone’s patriotism.  But, of course, that only applies when one is accusing a war-time president of war crimes, not when an election is at stake.  And Obama is diminishing the presidency on our dime, while pretending that the bus tour is not a campaign event.

Then there’s this:

“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again,” Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. “But over the last six months we’ve had a run of bad luck.” Obama listed three events overseas — the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises — which set the economy back.

(Emphasis added.)  Insty nails it, as usual:

BARACK OBAMA MUST BE A ROBERT HEINLEIN FAN! Robert Heinlein:

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”

By the way, where’s your plan, champ?  Waiting for some inspiration from The Vineyard?
