Taking a page from Sarah Palin’s rolling menace, President Obama will this month go on a bus tour of the midwest, which is expected to immediately “save or create” one temporary bus driving job:

President Obama is planning a bus tour through the Midwest this summer in a trip intended to shore up political support in battleground states.

The president will embark on the bus tour, a rare mode of travel for a sitting president, later this month, a White House official said Wednesday. The tour will be run by the White House, not Obama’s reelection campaign.
[…]
The trip is being cast as an opportunity for Obama to shift back to the issue of jobs and the economy, according to The New York Times, which first reported on it.

Should we plant the idea in the media that this is only happening because Tea Party hostage takers swindled posession of Air Force One as part of the budget deal?

It’s been just over a year since Sheriff Joe went on his “Recovery Summer” tour, jetting in style from location to location promoting what great things the stimulus had in store for America. That the president is doing a follow-up tour in a bus is either accidentally symbolic or his way of sharing some of the sacrifice with the rest of America.

No specific stops have been scheduled, but Ross’ Restaurant in Bettendorf, Iowa might want to stock up on Magic Mountain ingredients just in case.

Update: There’s a reason the White House will organize this campaigning bus tour instead of Obama’s campaign organization — because it’s going to be charged to taxpayers instead of Obama’s campaign donors.

A presidential motorcade just from an airport to a venue a few miles away is quite an expensive undertaking, but how much does one that gallivants around an entire section of the country cost?
