Its code name when the president is aboard is "Stagecoach"

More on that big bus:
The company who sold two of them to the Secret Service at a cost of more than $2.2 million (£1.3 million) has provided vehicles for Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and the Pope.
Oh yeah, stage-coach.

...even as what look like Palin fans line the way:)
Carney, however, reiterated the president’s threat that if Congress failed to act, Obama would not hesitate to leverage that failure politically.

“If they don’t do it,” Carney said, “he will take his arguments to the American people.”

In a statement Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Republicans were waiting to act on pending trade deals with Colombia, Panama and South Korea, but he complained that the White House hasn't sent them to the Hill.

“At a time when millions of Americans are out of work and businesses are looking for opportunities to hire, we must do everything we can to create an environment where jobs can come back,” McConnell said. “So it is my hope that the president, who continues to refuse to send these agreements to Congress while simultaneously calling for Congress to act, will finally resolve this contradiction by sending the agreements immediately.”
Oh yeah, the president's going to take his arguments to the American people. (that's working so well) Well, that ain't no Pony Express. Which was private, by the way.

Perry's softening up Romney bigtime, demonstrating TEA party appeal, but could it be that Palin'll be the last man standing? She's the one with the tried and true record of bipartisanship:)

And even CNN recognizes her natural ability to tell it like it is.

P.S. The president comes to Illinois tomorrow: Does Barack Obama Want to Talk About Illinois' Bad Employment Record: Unions , Regulations, and High Taxes

He just wants more of the same
P.P.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-8th) has invited him to a townhall meeting:) 
McHENRY – Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-08) today issued the following statement in response to President Obama's three-day bus trip through cities and towns in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois:
“It has taken President Obama almost three years to focus on job creation – he’s just not serious about it,” said Walsh. “Many Americans for months and even years now have been screaming at the top of their lungs that they are tired of near-double digit unemployment, too much government spending, and an uncertain future for our economy.”

"I have held over 60 town halls since coming to Congress this past January and at each one of them, I hear the same message: Americans are fed up with this Administration and its failure to improve our economy. They are also sick and tired of all the regulations his Administration has burdened small business with and all the government spending he has burdened us and future generations with.”

“If taxpayers are going to foot the bill for this new $1.1 million bus and all the expenses that come with this trip, the President better not use this tax dollar-funded trip to give just another campaign stump speech. It is for this reason that I would like to invite the President to co-host a town hall meeting with me at his earliest convenience. This will make certain the President hears the same unfiltered message I hear every day from Illinois residents."

"President Obama does not understand what makes the American economy tick. He needs to get out and talk to real folks in an open unscripted format. He needs to listen for a change."
Rather than take him up on the offer I imagine the president will make a quick exit--stage left.

While Paul Ryan may enter stage RIGHT.
