President Obama hits the road

Washington (CNN) - One day after the President signed into law a hotly debated bill to raise the country's debt ceiling, a White House spokesperson confirmed that he will soon be taking his jobs message on the road. On August 15th, President Obama will set out on a bus tour of the Midwest to refocus his attention on growing the flailing U.S. economy. The White House isn't announcing exactly which cities the President will visit yet, but with the GOP presidential primary already well underway, it's a safe bet that some swing states will be in the mix.

    If Obama does not grow a spine between now and 2012 he will be run over by the dark side with all of the money and power.
    Obama has a spine. But, he also has heart and compassion. Something that is seriously lacking in an apparent majority of his political foes.

    He is dealing with a group of people whose behavior seems to indicate that they are bent on wreaking as much havoc as they can, and then turn around and blame the Obama for the damage. Fault Obama for being weak. Fault Obama for a failure of leadership. In other words, accuse him of everything that you just wrote.

    He WILL have "fundamentally transformed America" into a pile of rubble.
    Bush left the country in rubble for Obama to clean up. Stop lying to yourself. I remember when Osama Bin Laden stated that he will financially bankrupt us. And Bush played right into his hands. He kept is UNPAID for war in Afghanistan going on while neglecting to capture or killing OBL. Guess what? We're still in Afghanistan. This is something that FIxed News neglects to tell you. Bush kept the cost of the wars off the books while Obama has put them on the books so the American people can see how much these wars are costing us. Did you know prior to President Obama taking office that the Afghanistan war was costing 2 billion dollars a week? I don't think so.

    Despite the largest Keynesian spending splurge in the history of the planet, the economy continues to founder. Obummer’s/Bill Ayers little socialist experiment has failed. The man who promised to unite the nation instead relishes dividing it at every opportunity. I for one can’t wait until the American people tell him to hit the road for good. Hope for Change 2012

    I remember all the "filibusters" evertyime President Obama attempted to do anything to help create jobs and keep the economy going. I remember the obstructions from the party of no at all attempts also. I remember the smug looks on their faces as they held back on aid to fellow Americans last December in the form of unemployment and would NOT vote unless the bush tax cuts were extended. I remember KYl not concerned with anyone but HIS time off at Christmas while others were trying to figure out how to stay warm cuz they had no money to pay their bills. People don't forget!!Yet they want to turn that and blame it on President Obama. I see you and remember....
