President Obama’s “absolutely positively not a campaign event” bus tour is under way. Obama’s trip on “Greyhound One” (slogan: “leave the blaming to us”) prompted the Romney campaign to dub it the “Magical Misery Tour.” President Obama wasted no time launching a return salvo by… comparing Romney’s health care plan in Massachusetts to Obamacares.
From the Politico live blog:
President Obama spent a good amount of time at his “town hall” in Minnesota on Monday talking up his health care law, and trying further still to tie it to the plan enacted by the Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
“You’ve got a governor who’s running for president right now who instituted the exact same thing in Massachusetts,” Obama said. “It’s like they got amnesia. Like, ‘Aww, this is terrible. This is going to take away freedom for Americans all over the world — all over the country.’”
People expressing unfounded concern for their constitutional liberties are such crybabies, aren’t they?
You might have notices that I added a bold “s” to the end of “Obamacare” in the first paragraph. Remember when Debbie Wasserman Schultz said that the term “Obamacare” was disparaging? Good news: If you add an “s” to the end of it the term is now acceptable:
Obama also reflected on Republicans labeling his signature law “ObamaCare,” saying: “I have no problem with folks saying Obama cares. I do care. If the other side wants to be the folks that don’t care, that’s fine with me.”
For some reason I’m reminded of Monsters, Inc. motto: We scare because we care.
And finally, Jay Leno has more information on the areas the bus tour will cover:
President Obama is off on his three-state bus tour this week. I believe the three states are Confusion, Delusion and Desperation.
Update: By way of Hot Air, President Obama was confronted by a couple of Tea Party members Monday:
