"The president will spend the next 10 days holed up at a tony, 28-acre elite playground called the Blue Heron Farm as the country plummets toward a double-dip recession," according to an article in the New York Post.
Not the common touch: With its million-dollar buses, the Obama “jobs” tour of the Midwest failed to strike the intended populist note.
Does nobody in the White House realize how poorly this act is playing?
Hitting three Midwest communities in two sleek, specially outfitted, Canadian-made million-dollar campaign buses, the president came off like a visiting Marie Antoinette, out among the besieged peasantry for a few days to preach his newfound religion of jobs.
The Black Caucus wants to know how come that bus never made it to a black community? They have a higher unemployment rate than the communities than the ones "The One" visted with his bus tour. This whole tour is coming off as one big bust! No one is happy. Only 11% are happy with the way things are going. This becoming a let them "eat cake" situation for "The One."
