Now, we’ve got what Michelle Malkin bills, “A taxpayer-subsidized Obama campaign road trip!” “As part of” the preident’s “new focus” on jobs, the Democrat, Ed Morrissey reports, “plans a bus tour — an unusual mode of travel for an American President, but SOP for a presidential candidate working the crowds to bolster support.”
Joy McCann finds an upside in this: “the President can’t be pretending to do his job from a bus any more than he can from the golf course.” But, she laments that there is also a downside, “he’s expressing his support for public funding of campaigns by using operating expenses rather than his own campaign funds.”
Guess he’ll be using this tour to tell us how he plans to create more jobs. If he’s doing any talking about job creation, he should be addressing his words not to citizens of battlegrounds states, but to his appointees in the federal bureaucracy, instructing them to rescind the burdensome regulations they authorized in the past thirty months — and to find new ways to streamline the “permitting process.”
But, I daresay instead of offering new ideas on job creation, he’ll pull a page from his campaign playbook and attack Republicans, likely blaming the last Republican president for the mess he inherited.
