Major Update: Some have questioned whether it is even possible to do plane rides given the path of the bus tour. After doing some Google Map analysis I agree that the story seems to be a fraud. There are no airports large enough to accommodate Air Force One near many of the stops. And it would be just as easy to drive to the next stop as go to the nearest airport large enough for Air Force One and cargo planes large enough to transport the buses. Mea Culpa – should have done this check yesterday. Looks like someone fed us all a bit of fiction.
I can’t believe this is true. Obama did not ride the bus on his big bus tour. He flew on Air Force One between stops and then rode a couple of miles pretending to ride the bus through America.
>An AP reporter said that Obama might have ridden these expensive buses only one mile at each stop. Therefore, it wasn’t really a “BUS TOUR”! Obama spent most of the “BUS TOUR” on an airplane traveling between stops. It looks like Obama has scammed the American people again……..with the help of the liberal media.
Emphasis mine. If the drama-media is complicit in staging this fiction – as they clearly are – then we should all just turn our backs on them and look elsewhere for news. It seems our ‘news’ is more Hollywood than fact these days. I fail to see the point in wasting time watching journalism majors pretend they have a clue what is going on around them, or watch them make things up like this. Really, why bother – life is too short.
Just think of the outrage if a GOP President pretended to travel among the poor masses using a secure form of mass transit?
Good Lord, help us make it through the next year until November 2012. H/T reader Kathie
