    You Republicans that donate to Romney are paying his $500,000 Luxury Bus. This will work great for Obama. He will how this Million that has Swiss Bank account and the 1% like pushing middle and the poor around.

    Is this an empty bus all full of idiots people like Romney. Hey, you unstable candidate, why can't you do something which is beneficial to people, or say something which will make people think whom they should support. By doing this, you are exposing how empty you are!

    The (severely) conservative Romney is following the president again, not leading with any new solutions.

    Romney is pushing Ryan's extreme plan for the same ol' tax cuts for the rich off the backs of middle-class Americans.

    President Obama 2012

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

    Exactly. The tax cut Mittens is giving himself and his 1%, he can afford it! American middle class, keep voting against your own self interest by voting for the GOP.

    This is the closest R-Money will vicariously get to real American human beings. If this is the stunt he wants to pull. I suggest President Obama's campaign schedule his rallies outside the companies and factories Bain Capital shut down, laid off workers & sucked obscene profits from. How'd he like that.?

    The passive aggressive approach. Hiding behind his bus, half-truths and flat-out lies while refusing to face the media (Faux Noise does not count). Wrong on Detroit, wrong on bin Laden, wrong on Libya, wrong on Chen. Another day, another Willard error. I see why he hides.

    The choice is certainly clear - done with Obama - ready for a real leader - not a snake oil salesman.

    Romney 2012 !

    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.
    In 2010 mid-term elections, American voters sent huge numbers of Republicans to Washington to stop the out-of-control spending and greater than 10% unemployment while we still had a prayer for our future. They have been successful.

    So even though Harry Reid and Barack Obama thing a federal budget is defined by a spending cap, Republicans continue to show Americans that responsible management requires passing budgets. And they have. So who is blocking progress for America? Barack Obama and Harry Reid. Fortunately it is 2012 and American voters can complete the shellacking soon.

    Really, you got to be fricking kidding me. Is this supposed to be acceptable behavior? What are going to bully President Obama campagin from using the venue? Somebody please explain this one to me because I just don't fricking get it. This is a stunt that my 13 year old daughters snd her friends would think is appropriate. God help us all from the maturity level of the Republican Party particularly Mitt "get a clue dude" Romney.

    I am just asking! Is it too late to get someone else instead of this know nothing Romney. He looks he will make us lose this election. This man is an empty suit. I did not expect this is coming. What can we do we true conservatives?

    What's with the GOP and buses? This is the 21st century. I am surprised that Romne is not on a train maiking whistle stops like Herbert Hoover. It would be fitting, as his party espouses the same srategy to combat our economic problems – stop spenidng and lower taxes so the the rich will create more jobs. It didn't work in the 30's and it is fiction now. BY the way, the "man of people's" bus is taking up six parking spaces.

    au contraire (that's French by the way - you know my party's weak candidate's favorite place that shows socialistic tendencies in yet another hypocritical twist, but I digress). Thank you for flattering me, you poser. History shows that no president ever cut taxes in war time until W. I will not stop confusing you poser with facts like wars off the books contributing to our nations budget shortfall. Dick Cheney (R icon) "Deficits don't matter" Of course not until the other party has the WH. Then after the fire has been set, phony deficit hawks like you, poser, cry all about it. Too easy.

    Mitt plays dirty. I mean look at all the media attention he gets for the general election when he has not even secured the GOP yet. It may turn out that he doesn't. As for Obama, same thing. He is going after Romney prematurely. They both seem desperate. They are both bill boarding and show boating in a highly obnoxious fashion. Maybe they are both affraid of Ron Paul. I wonder how much money it takes to buy out the entire main stream media in order to get them to completely ignore and disregard a candidate all together? While the Romney camp are out parking busses at Obama rallies, Ron Paul's people are winning the GOP conventions. While Obama is blowing his Campaign money on Romney much to early. Ron Paul's people are organizing more grass roots fundraisers which can and have produced millions in one day.

    The President said it will be a 3 yr Propisition If it,s not better in 3 yrs he will be a1 term President. I look at things how they are now. I look at how things were when Obama took office. I conclude that We The People are not better off. So I will vote Romney in November.
