                Bad News Bus Tour
      The president is now visiting the Heartland to
    show how much heart he has for the struggling
    middle-class and those hopelessly unemployed.
    Remember those old wagon trains back in the
    old west? Remember the old TV show with Ward
    Bond as the trail boss, the chuck wagon and the
    advance scout? Well, this looks Iike a wagon train
    too. The President rides in a $1 million plus bus.
    He arrives in Air Force One, his Mannes One
    copter is carted in a cargo plane and there’s a
    40-car entourage. Sounds like a good waste of
    tax dollars to me.

    family vacation. Both the deficit and growing debt
    seemed to have been placed on the political

      Recently, a coalition of unions and liberal
    groups unveiled a mobile billboard urging U.S.
    Senator Scott Brown to support higher taxes on
    the rich and corporations to help solve the nation’s
    debt and deficit issues. This group says it will
    bring the billboard to events that the Massachu-
    setts Republicans plan to attend. The billboard
