    How disrespectful and childish can this stiff be!?
    Let's see. Childish. That would be like a sitting President of The United States of America gloating about a special forces killing on Prime Time TV as part of a reelection campaign?

    The bus needs to go bye bye, and the candidate needs to embrace his conservative roots. Start going from village-to-dell riding a mule, like his ancestors did. Spreading the word of his chosen faith. Don't be a wannabe pimp, riding around in a rolling palace. This bus (more than likely), is nicer than most trailers, surrounding the idiots that believe republicans care for them. WAKE-UP people.

    Hey it's a nice looking bus ! Obama and his minions are haveig stratagy sessions of how the get re-elected. In other words selling you a Pig-In-A poke. The jobs report isn't pretty. Obama wants to Re-Distribute the Wealth. What Wealth? Nobody has any Wealth to Re-Diistribute. Ask yourelf why we are in this mess? What happened? Something happened to run the National Debt to nearly 16 Trillion dollars. What caused it? A clue. Democrats were in charge for 40 Years. You would think, after 40 years everytihing would be fixed. But the country is in worse trouble than the Great Depression. Why?

    I expected the Rmoney bus to be much, much shorter.

    I wonder if Romney can hear the people chanting "four more years" from across the street.

    "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."

    Here Four is starting to run out of energy and beginning to coast with his cheap projection tricks of accusing others of what the GOBP cult is doing, combined with an outrageous lie about his GOBP cult's alleged "responsible management". This of course flies in the face of reality, where only President Obama and Ron Paul have made deficit reduction proposals, while Rmoney and Paul "The Undertaker" Ryan have proposed deficit INCREASE plans. Yet n Four's world, it is his fiscally irresponsible GOBP cult that somehow imparts economic lessons to the rest of us. Oh yeah, and in Four's world, up is down and the sky is always a delicate shade of green.

  16. Joe from CT, not Lieberman

    And ff Darth Cheney were still Vice President, he would have ordered the bus towed to Area 51,and have the driver subject to extraordinary rendition. Ain't livin' in a Democracy wonderful?

    I thought stalking was illegal. Seems that the Romney campaign is Stalking President Obama. Very creepy Republican tactic. If this is what the Romney campaign comes up with, Romney won't get my vote.

    That bus was in my city when President Obama was speaking at the community college in Elyria OH. I wanted to ask the gentlemen who was walking around outside it talking to himself (presumably broadcasting back to an audience) WHY they saw the need to be there at all. It just looked so out of place threre around all the Obama supporters.

    Poor Romney . . . what a weasel. He can not win on his own strength, he have to make a lot of noised, as to drown out the other party speaking points and messages. But Romney fail to see and realize is that's all we hear from Romney is just noise. "I saw a face in the crowd, say nothing, yet speaking loud".

    Mitt Romney's job creation record as governor was abysmal, his state ranked 47th in the nation. This is a record only Mitt Romney could be proud of. Mitt Romney does not want American people to know about this either. Instead he runs around lying about what a job creator he is. Mitt Romney is phoney, America.

    This is pretty low down for Mitt to do, but what do you expect from a republican, they all act like childish idiots. I hope that the american people can see through this low down sleep bag.
