Anyone want to know the definition of "AUDACITY"? HERE IT IS!

Secret Service Buys Two New $1.1 Million Buses for a Three-Day Presidential Campaign Trip while Obama flies ahead of the buses for his campaign stops.

Obama FLIES into an airport somewhere in the Midwest, hops into one of two brand new $1.1 Million buses, paid for by you and me, for a ”bus” tour around the Midwest' and, after an hour or so, gets driven back to the airport for ANOTHER FLIGHT, lands at another airport, where another $1.1 Million brand new black Canadian bus is waiting for Obama - and then, repeats all that until Obama's Midwest "bus" tour is done!! [These buses are Canadian-built, by the way, because Obama is SO CONCERNED about American manufacturing, creating American jobs and supporting American productivity.] Footnote: The company that sold them is based in TN.

And don't forget... those brand new shiny black Canadian buses AREN'T DRIVEN to the location where they meet Obama.
Oh, no…They are loaded up on one or more C-17s so
they can be flown to the destination ahead of Obama who is flying in Air Force One.

AND!.. Believe it or not…this process is REPEATED FOR EVERY CAMPAIGN STOP.
During this “bus” tour, Obama will lecture the 'little people' on how they need to live within their means while hinting of possible future government cut-backs and a need to raise revenues (aka: taxes)!

Remember, too, Obama’s “sage advice” to a family man to 'GO BUY A HYBRID VAN' when the man said he couldn't afford to fill up his truck!
Obama's personal 'carbon footprint' must be as large as most cities by now.

Unbelievably, ALL of this is on the taxpayers’ dime!
But remember, this is NOT a campaign trip - It is a "Meet With the People" trip only!
Consequently, the Democrat National Committee does NOT have to pay a cent for all of this extravagant 'campaign' spending.

Please forward this on to all of your taxpaying and voting friends so that they, too, can see just why the federal government needs more of our taxes for revenue!

    No, not if Obama gets in! Besides, here something you don't know about Romney......


    Romney's TRUE Character
    Before sharing this with you, I wanted to make sure it was factual.
    It is! You can verify it here: http://www.snopes.com/politic...

    YES, MITT ROMNEY IS A SELF-MADE MULTI-MILLIONAIRE --
    BUT READ THIS STORY ABOUT A PART OF HIS LIFE THAT YOU MAY
    HAVE NEVER HEARD ABOUT BEFORE! IT WOULD BE MY GUESS THAT,
    AS PRESIDENT HE WILL NOT ACCEPT THE SALARY...
    NOR ABUSE THE USE OF AIR FORCE-1...
    AND I AM GUESSING HE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY RETIREMENT BONUS.
    THIS IS JUST SOMETHING TO REMEMBER WHEN YOU VOTE !!!!!!
    PLEASE SEND TO ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK!
    You will not be hearing a story like this about Obama............
    One doesn't exist!!
    Yes, character does matter, and what we have been hearing in the
    media recently has been quite shocking. I thought you might like to
    see another side of one of the candidates. It appears there is more
    to the Bain Capital story than is being told. So, I hope this
    inspirational story is informative enough to convince you
    that Mitt Romney is one of the good guys!
    Romney's character... This facet of Romney's personality isn't so subtle.
    In July 1996, the 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner at
    Bain Capital, had disappeared. She had attended a rave party in New

    Romney's character... This facet of Romney's personality isn't so subtle.
    In July 1996, the 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner at
    Bain Capital, had disappeared. She had attended a rave party in New
    York City and gotten high on ecstasy. Three days later, her
    distraught father had no idea where she was.
    Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and
    asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to help find
    Gay's daughter. Romney set up a command center at the LaGuardia
    Marriott and hired a private detective firm to assist with the search.
    He established a toll-free number for tips, coordinating the effort
    with the NYPD, and went through his Rolodex and called everyone
    that Bain did business with in New York, and asked them to help find
    his friend's missing daughter.
    Romney's accountants at Price Waterhouse Cooper put up posters on
    street poles, while cashiers at a pharmacy owned by Bain put fliers in
    the bag of every shopper. Romney and the other Bain employees
    scoured every part of New York and talked with everyone they could --
    including prostitutes, drug addicts, homeless people, -- anyone.
    That day, their hunt made the evening news, which featured photos
    of the girl and the Bain employees searching for her. As a result, a
    teenage boy phoned in, asked if there was a reward, and then hung up
    abruptly. The NYPD traced the call to a house in New Jersey, where
    they found the girl in the basement, shivering and experiencing
    withdrawal symptoms from a massive ecstasy dose. Doctors
    later said the girl might not have survived another day.
    Romney's former partner credits Mitt Romney with saving his
    daughter's life, saying, "It was the most amazing thing, and I'll
    never forget this to the day I die."
    So, here's my epiphany: Mitt Romney simply can't help himself.
    He sees a problem, and his mind immediately sets to work solving it,
    sometimes consciously, and sometimes not-so-consciously.
    He doesn't do it for self-aggrandizement, or for personal gain.
    He does it because that's just how he's wired.
    Many people are unaware of the fact that when Romney was asked by
    his old employer, Bill Bain, to come back to Bain & Company as CEO to
    rescue the firm from bankruptcy, Romney left Bain Capital to work at
    Bain & Company for an annual salary of one dollar.
    When Romney went to the rescue of the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics, he
    accepted no salary for three years, and would not use an expense
    account. He also accepted no salary as Governor of Massachusetts.
    Character counts!!! (and yes... that's worth reading again!)
    It's nice to hear something positive about one of the candidates for a change.
    Why isn't this story Publicized More in the Media? (You tell me!)
    Please, Remember this story when you vote in November.

    if what he did is illegal he will and should have already gone to prison. Don't play like you don't know that. He has proven to be a successful businessman and when electing a candidate, experience is EVERYTHING< Obama has NO experience. PERIOD! I will guarantee Obama will be gone in November. Too many Democrats have jumped ship.
