    Real rural America should be able to see through " Old clouds and wind without rain " pretty easily.

    Why this, "While considered official White House travel, the bus tour will put Obama in campaign-like settings with small-business owners and workers in rural areas" This is campaigning pure and simple, should be acknowleged as such, and paid with political campaign funds. It is really not appropriate for a sitting President more than a year before the election to be conducting themselves in this manner. As a former supporter, I am sad to see so many missed opportunities by this administration to be the leader of all and move the country in a positive direction instead of more partisanship. As unfortunate as Mr. Obama's "seat at the back of bus" statement was, his actions as the leader of partisanship are undefensible, and by me unsupportable.

    @Screwdriver. We have been listening to Obama for nearly 3 years and where has that gotten us?
    #1: Highest unemployment since the great depression.
    #2: Lowest consumer confidence since the great depression.
    #3: Double digit inflation of food and energy with no end is sight.
    #4: The value of the home of every American has decreased by double digits each year of the last 3 years and no end in sight.
    #5: The national debt is growing by $4.1 billion/ per day, the fastest in history.
    #6: 44 million Americans are now on food stamps, the most in history.
    #7: The stock market is in shambles, with no end in sight.
    #8: Another expensive war in Libya with no end is sight.
    #9: America's credit rating downgraded for the first time in our history!
    #10: Rammed Obamacare down our throats in the secret dark of night against the will of the American people.
    Even Hillary warned us that Obama is unqualified and unprepared to lead us! All Obama and his apologists do is blame everyone else!

    Obama's problem isn't the folks on the right that are looking at the results of his lack of leadership. His problem are the liberals within his own party that are disgusted with his lack of leadership. Rocky Anderson's defection from the Democratic party is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Have you seen his Rasmussen poll ratings lately?

    Nobody on the right will listen to it, then they will say he lacks a plan and leadership.

    I can tell the future!
