Obama Bus Tour Stop #9: Le Claire, IA

In his final stop of the day, he popped into a unique gift shop called Grasshoppers which sold antiques and wine. President Obama chatted with the owner and they shared dog stories and apparently the president bought a gift for someone. According to the pool, "Obama walked out with what appeared to be a big silver M dangling on silver circle." Maybe it's something for Michelle or Malia. Before getting back on the bus, he walked over to the Kernel Cody’s Porpcorn Shoppe and bought a few bags of popcorn. This time he shared with the travel pool without asking.

    I do hope the people of Iowa see and realize whats going on here. He's not there because he cares. He is there to gain votes and boost his popularity. Nothing more nothing less. Why would he start there? Why not Nebraska, Idaho, or Kansas?

    Obama better face that it is going to be a lot different than 2008, the lies and promises are over. He will be attacked by these insane tea baggers, and all the people that voted for him and believed his lies. I for one will never believe him again he said he would tax the rich and hasn't and there are no jobs like he promised. Every thing that is supposed to help the middle class doesn't take effect until 2014, too long to wait. So I will stay home and hold my breath, because the Republicans are to blame for all this.

      Obama is proving Lincoln right ... by fooling some of the people ALL of the time. You are just another liberal fool, who even after witnessing 2 1/2 years of the Obama parasites, sucking the life out of our economy and our country, continues to defend and support this lying, manipulative, racist, snake. Obama has ruled this country by pitting one half of America against the other half, and thus maintaining a toxic atmosphere of fear and mistrust. His empty promises are all about getting reelected, while he continues to destroy this great country. It's people like you, blind fanatical Obama loyalists, who are bringing America to its knees. America is MORE important than Obama, and if you want to save this great country of ours, it's time for you Obama suckers to open your eyes, and shift your loyalty from Obama to America !!!

    Bus tour, read campaign tour which would be illegal and unethical to have the taxpayers pay for this, which is exactly what this president did. Where is this man getting his advice, it is really bad at every turn. To spend one million on these buses of our money does not seem to be a guy interested in spending cuts or even for our well being. Obama needs to fire all his advisers. This bus tour is a plain and simple campaign tour............the president does not believe the American people are not that clever, we have his number and his time is up!
