    Haha....the other thread riled you enough to go search this out. It's really not an issue worth feeling the need to defend.

    What was our unemployment rate at the time?
    Debt? Deficit in regards to GDP?

    At least 2004 was an election year.

    Did Bush claim that it *wasn't* a campaign bus?

    One Big Difference FUCK FACE. Bushes Campaign PAID FOR IT! Bush Never claimed it was not a campaign Bus. Bush didn't go around claiming to be on a listening tour, while doing nothing buy Preaching against the Opposition and stumping for Votes.

    But Bush isn't black and you know how racist white conservatives feel about blacks, minus the coons: Thomas, West, Sowell, Williams et al.

    Actually I'm not everyone knows the president has to travel to the 9's. Even I know that just because a president advocates green technology doesn't mean he can get rid of limos and Air Force 1

    Bush didn't do this when the country was running up trillion dollar deficits and 9% were unemployed.

    There's an empathy factor when someone has to worry about paying the light bill or the food bill sees a president spending a million bucks protecting a bus he's only going to use for a couple of weeks.

    By that time Bush had run up $2.5 trillion debt increase and unemployment was touching 7%. Fuck empathy, there's no empathy in politics. Crush your enemies and win reelection. You fuckers were never going to vote for him anyway.
