    And unlike Obamas bus, we don't have to pay for it. Kind of shows the differnce doesn't it.

    This is not behavior befitting a presidential candidate. This appears childish at the very least on the part of Romney.

  7. vote the Tea Party OUT in 2012

    not really sure who is running the Romney campaign but many of the things they are doing is somewhat high schoolish. Mitt is shadowing the president so he can show up BEFORE Obama does.......tell his half-truths and sometimes untruths to I guess try to get the crowd on his side. And now this bus incident. This is not going to work in the long run and make Mitt look very childish IMO.

    Going for the Jr. High effect, Mitt? Can't draw your own crowds, so you attempt to steal another's. Who knows, maybe the media will even put a good word in for you. You know, like create the image that these are YOUR supporters.

    Is this grade school? why can't he RUN HIS OWN IDEAS for the nation? This kind of campaign makes me think of a mean girl trying to sabotage the home coming queen competion.

    So childish. . . and this is what the GOP consider as leadership.

    Geez. Romney acts like a junior high school kid.

  15. Are you kidding me?

    @devon -- hahah! So true. Just look at the crowds at his speeches and rallys. This is the closest he wants to be to regular level headed people.

    He is probably at the Kentucky derby hanging out with the rich people. Instead of connecting with regular people he sends an entry bus. Figures.

    I would love to see Willard serving food to the homeless or walk around a minority neighborhood.

    Ah, yes. Mitt showing us his CEO credentials by following Obama around town like a little lost boy with no friends of his own. Mitt did that with Guiliania too. Followed him around begging for handouts.

    Psst. Mitt. Obama supporters aren't on your side. His friends aren't your friends. And you're not running for class clown.

    Or, is he? Ann says he's that same boy she first met years ago. Beginning to think he still IS that same boy - that boy who never grew up, that is.

    The bus symbolizes his brain and capabilities – an empty shell. No plan, no solution, no way I am voting for mitt.

    Come out of the bus and conduct a legit press conference. MeToo Romney, coward supreme. SB5 will be among the many reasons why Willard will lose in Ohio. No care for the Middle Class, no solutions, no convictions; just a plastic career candidate.

    If Romney wants to waste his time and money following the President around – instead of leading a campaign to show what he can do for the people of the US – sobeit.

    But seriously – there are some mental issues on doing something this stupid.

    This is about it for Republican Strategies now because they really do not have a concrete Strategy to run on except -Getting in the way of everything possible as witnessed in the Congress.

    Obama is Strong on national defense, improving the economy at a steady rate,improving health care for ALL Americans, helping students, moving toward renewable energy systems, giving Tax breaks to small businesses and all in spite of endless, willful obstruction from the Republicans!

    The choice is certainly clear.

    Obama 2012.
