Time for some classic Obama Bus Tour photoshops (more here). Yep, he’s on the road again — campaigning on the taxpayer’s dime for who knows what whenever. In the aftermath of the Senate’s rejection of his massive government jobs slush fund, the White House will now push for passage of a slew of mini-slush funds and bailouts.

Public employee unions first, of course — with a dose of “We are the Occupiers You’ve Been Waiting For.”

The Hill reports:

President Obama is returning to the road this week to press Congress to start passing the American Jobs Act, beginning with $35 billion for states to put teachers and first-responders to work.

But White House officials said Sunday that Obama will not be sending a separate piece of legislation to Congress, referring questions about the process to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

…The first piece Obama wants is $35 billion in aid for states to prevent the laying off of or support increased hiring of teachers, police officers and fire fighters, [WH spokesman] Earnest said.

…Earnest said that as Obama travels this week, the president will “continue to acknowledge the frustration that he himself shares” with Wall Street.

And using the popular refrain from the Occupy crowds, Earnest said that Obama will ensure “the interests of 99 percent of Americans… is well represented[.]”

At the end of the trip, Earnest said, “the message will be clear: Pass the bill this week to protect the job of a North Carolina teacher, or come down here, look her in the eye and explain to her why protecting” tax cuts for the wealthy is more important than passing the jobs bill.

Let’s hope he finds a teacher who’s actually out of work this time to promote as poster child.
