Obama on Bus Tour: GOP Jobs Plan is ‘Let’s Have Dirtier Air, Dirtier Water’

Tuesday, October 18, 2011


When the going gets rough, blame the other guys. That appeared to be President Obama’s game plan Monday as he attacked congressional Republicans at the start of a three-day bus tour across North Carolina and Virginia. Both are states he won in 2008 that could be hard to hold onto in next year’s presidential race.

Mr. Obama started in Ashville, N.C., a liberal haven in the conservative western part of the state, and wasted no time in lashing out at Senate Republicans for blocking consideration of his $447 billion jobs bill last week.

“They said no to putting teachers and construction workers back on the job,” Obama said to a crowd at Ashville Regional Airport. “They said no to rebuilding our roads and our bridges and our airports. They said no to cutting taxes for middle-class families and small businesses when all they’ve been doing is cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans.”

Obama then described the Republican jobs plan in the most caustic of terms: “You got their plan, which is, Let’s have dirtier air, dirtier water, [and] less people with health insurance.”

    As usual, Obunga is talking through his anus.

      No word which describes o-vomit should ever be capitalized. The use of caps denotes honor and respect. Few people on this site truly wish to show him honor and respect.

    • Henry

      Great thinking! I NEVER capitalize obama’s name. I have 0 respect for him. He is a dedicated, hardcore, unadmitted Marxist. Just a fact of life. He is following the Hugo Chavez, Marxist Dictator of Venezuela’s playbook to the T. America is not exept from reality. Everything he is doing has been planned out for many years. obama is merely the spark to ignite anarchy that is necessary to ultimately install Marshall Law. The “boot” of Marxism soon will be firmly planted on the neck of American’s freedom, liberty, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. Just a fact of life.

      As he said it from his Canadian built-bus.

      His Diesel Pusher Bus emitts more poloution than 6 chevrolet S10s.

    • patty

      o is a liar and a crook. he should have no job, no benefits, no pension, and be permanently jailed in gitmo and never allowed back into USA. throw out all the criminals. send gangs to the front. they understand kill or be killed, and their enemy will not be innocent. beheaders and torturers and rapists,murderers,robbers and thieves deserve each other. save the innocent. save our country from all our enemies. deport the antiAmericans now.

  • Obamavitch

    How suprising that obungle would tell a lie. I guess he truly deserves the title of the #1 LFN.

    • warren reynolds

      LFN? Lying fu@king nincumpoop?

  • RJJ

    What did it cost to have those $Million Canadian built buses flown to North Carolina? And when he finishes a speech and moves out it is believed that he is not on any of the buses, they are just an expensive diversion for security. Just incase a Wall Street Occupier type wants to take out President Wall Street.

    • Chet

      I just heard on TV that obungas truck with some oof his sound equipment was stolen! Too bad he has another one with him.

    • joant

      OH NO! whatever will he do without his teleprompter?

    • warren reynolds

      This guy pisses away money like nothing i have ever imagined, and what’s worse is the congress (hundreds of them) go right along with him, they have all broken their oath. Any lawmaker that voted to pass a bill they have not yet read should be tried and found guilty of treason, if you don’t know what’s on the contract DON’T SIGN IT. I’ve known that since i was 18, actually earlier than that.

    • warren reynolds

      and come to think of it, every single democrat voted for the health care bill, i don’t think one single republican voted for it, it was 2700 pages and they got it 72hrs before the vote. That means they had to read AND comprehend over 900 pages per day. Incredible

    • patty

      you did hear he flies to his bus, then pretends he has been on it. illegal campaigning for a loser, a stupid job killing bill, and a way to beg for money from idiots who cannot see, hear or think. obozo sucks. leftist cannot understand the future with worst pres ever would be awful. lying radical muslim sharia,shared dirty poverty,no women’s rights,no freedom, no happiness,all wrong.

  • http://googlechrome David

    osloba has never been wrong in his entire life. It’s everybody else who is wrong in his teeny mind. osloba is the best liar that’s ever been in the WH and will say anything about his opponents to win. As in Chicken Little, osloba has lied so many times that no one believes him anymore. he has his group of people that will vote for him no matter what he says or does. he will not gain any more votes. his group of ass kissers better have a crying handkerchief ready on Election Day.

    • CaptTurbo

      I think Slick Willy was “the best liar”

      obozo’s BS doesn’t fool any level headed people. The problem is that his electorate is a group of racists who are dumber then a brick and as honest as was Capone.

  • Jack

    Does he realize how stupid that sounds?

    • John

      Evidently he doesn’t care. How many bold faced lies have we heard from this POS ? Remember these whoppers ?
      “I promise 100% transparency in my administration.”

      “I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year.”

      “I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills.”

      “I will remove earmarks for PORK projects before I sign any bill.”

      “I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year.”

      “I’ll put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!”

      “I’ll have no lobbyists in my administration.”

      Obama is President of the five F Club- Find em, Feel em, Fool em, F@#k em, and Forget em. That’s how he sees the electorate !

  • Jack

    I guess the republicans don’t breath air or drink water.

    • Gas Passer

      You would think that America has the cleanest air and water now that most of America’s manufacturing company’s have moved to China.

      With that said, you would think the government would get rid of the Environmental Protection Agency.

  • Patti Patriot

    Can you say BULLY and play dirty?

  • jim

    Obamanations’ tour must be over now I heard on the news where some hero has stolen his big rig containing his teleprompter bless his heart. Wish I knew the guy I’d buy him a steak dinner.

  • Al Duhan

    How clean are the Obama Democrats in the protest on wall street. @ weewks without changing clothes, cdapping in their pants, Urination on the sidewalks, that will run into the drinking water. But this appears to be clean to Obama. White is clean. Brown ?????

  • lizaz

    I’m so tired of him speaking in such a condescending way to people who don’t agree with him…I guess he thinks if he demeans Republicans, it will get him more votes. He’s supposed to be president of the United States not just his supporters and donators. Let’s hope more voters come to realize what a failure he has been as president…we aren’t stupid….

  • OAHS

    Diversion … desperate … his accomplishments aren’t worth talking about … he has nothing ..

  • Sonja M

    Am so sick of Obama and his lying blame game.
    Wonder who he blames for his very existance.
    Enough said.

    • Richard William Faith

      SHHHHHH! Don’t wake him up. He thinks he CREATED HIMSELF.

  • Richard William Faith

    Dirtier air thanks to his BUS ON STEROIDS. GET HIM A BICYCLE!

    • Donna

      LOL right!!

    • Are you Serious

      Get him a hearse!!!!!

  • Richard William Faith

    Whose carbon footprint is bigger? obama’s or gore’s? Next to EITHER ONE OF THEM, I’m a mere WILDERNESS TENT DWELLER! The funny thing is, I’M THE REPUBLICAN! Go figure.

  • Richard William Faith

    They took away all my money so that THEY could afford a BIGGER CARBON FOOTPRINT FOR THEMSELVES! Somebody PLEASE do this for me:
    Go to a place where obama is speaking. When the opportunity presents itself, ask him “What is hypocrisy?”. Be sure to cut the cord to his teleprompter, so that he is forced to RESPOND EXTEMPORANEOUSLY.

  • Donna

    You know, Obama might be “President”, but he has no moral capacity, no heart, no soul, nothing. He is a spoiled, pampered, ill-tempered, brainwashed, fibbster.
    It’s such a shame that he can make speeches talking about “toning down the rhetoric” and name-calling, yet it’s just peachy for him and his gross, public-defacating, Flea Party ilk to spew even worse lies about what the “American People want”…as if he knows. He is so out of touch with reality, he just makes stuff up as he goes along — and if he gets a good guffaw from ol’ Gaffing Joe, well I supposed it’s all worth it to him then.
    I guess he forgot to tell his brainwashed Zombie Army that Obamacare FORCES citizens to buy healthcare. It is not free, wrapped in tinsel and a bow by dear old Uncle Sam.
    For crying out loud.

  • am2sweet

    There Obama is out there spouting his lies about Republicans and I wonder how many people listening to him belived it. Sounds to me like the Republicans need to get facts and present them to the people regarding what a liar Obama is and how the only ones benefiting his jobs bill are his ‘friends’.

  • tweety

    Oh, of course, the Republicans are for plague, death, famine while the Democrats are the saviors of the world. Did anyone tell the Big O that he is contributing to the pollution by driving his big bus all over the country (not campaigning, of course, no!) Could have saved a lot of gas too!

      He is the ultimate pawn- always 4 moves ahead in this vulgar game. He is the ultimate image- the reality is scary. It is frustrating to see how they use foolish idiots to their ends…I don’t want a checkmate result for our country with his mocking mouth & smacking knuckles

  • Bluewolf

    He’s riding in those buses emitting fumes all over the place and he claims the Republicans want dirtier air and water? Give us a BREAK, paleeeeese!! What a joke this idiot is.

  • The Truth

    I just got back from a trip to Virginia. While there I had a conversation about the failing economy in CA. I was shocked to hear this woman tell me that it was because of conservatives lowering taxes in the state. I had to inform her that 1) our state is run by libs not conservatives and they have blocked almost all legislation introduced by conservatives, 2) her sales tax is just 5%, while mine in LA county is 8.75%, so we actually have one of the highest sales tax rates nationwide, and 3) in addition the state has raised taxes on businesses not lowered them and these unfriendly business practices are precisely what is driving many companies to leave the state. Other states also offer tax credits and lower taxes and they are not going bankrupt. It amazes me how the blind herd just follows obozo and the libs without thinking for themselves or doing any research. Even more remarkable, they are willing to trust obozo and his administration despite the fact that he has destroyed our economy and unemployment skyrocketed as a result of his failed policies.

  • invest

    Obama’s jobs plan = ZERO It not a jobs plan at all but a JOB DESTROYER!

  • Are you Serious

    I think the GOP would prefer to simply remove the Dirtiest President in History fro office. That would surely cleanup the water and the air.

  • Nonne

    If you look carefully at the photo which accompanies this article, you can see that very few people were at the Ashland, NC Airport to meet the Liar-in-Chief. This little band of dedicated socialists is a far cry from the fawning millions who(accidently?) drank the Koolaid back in 2008.

    Does his bus carry a bumper sticker “Honk If You Love Me”

      Let’s make one that says “NOT AGAIN”

  • Higgs

    It’s the same playbook of the Dems – Republicans want dirty water, air, and food; they want Grandma and Grandpa on pet food; and, keep the poor poor. On the other hand, the Dems want to: regulate businesses out of business; cause increases in the price of every day items such as food; and give more money to the poor to keep them “enslaved.” The Republicans can fight this with facts and figures. Even then, there are the idiots who believe “blindly” what the Dems tell them. Seeing as how most of them are too ignorant to understand enough to question let alone how to actually do research to find the facts. So, the Dems, and obama, play the card as long as it’s a winning hand. I hope and pray that the educated that fell for his rhetoric the first time don’t fall for it again.

    Demo environmentalists caused the dirty air and water.
    Look at the most environmentally regulated. Bad Air and messed up water distribution.

    I wonder if he is riding in the back of the bus??

    • Richard Wm. Faith

      If it’s up to obama’s practical knowledge alone, it will be mandated that the DRIVER’S SEAT of a bus be located ALL THE WAY IN THE REAR. Engineers make stuff work, often IN SPITE OF the input that POLLUTE-TICIANS “contribute” to the project. POLLUTE-TICIANS, on the other hand, specialize in causing stuff NOT to work.

    how dare he or any other politican talk about clean water when they knowlingly allow the Posion Fluoride be dumped into it and say Nothing,
