Bottomline if your getting angry because the president bought a bus that happened to be built in canada, take your eyes off the new all american chevrolet camaro and the all american lincoln town car amongst many other models, its called free trade for a reason, americans build parts canadians build cars and other stuff and vice versa if your really think that all those flatscreens and satellite technology installed in that vehicle all came from canada you have a screw loose. Whats next? some lawmaker is gonna get scolded for using an iphone because assembled in china, you have no idea how blatantly immature and idiotic that lawmakers are people to spy on who made your bus they are using YOUR TAX DOLLARS to do it. What do think costs more, politicians investigating the origins of other politicians underwear 24/7 365 days a year or those buses? Time for america to get its priorities straight and stop crying about buses that were probably built with a lot of american made parts anyway. You guys should be focused on whats important not trying to get the president to rip sony flatscreens off the wall to help create jobs. smfh Oh give me a break, its 2011 every piece of machinery is made with parts from all over, you really thing all the steel, engine parts, tires and seats were all in canada? get a clue. everytime you see a chrysler 300 drive down the street, thats a canadian built product and ford f150′s have been the best selling vehicle in canada for decades.

It worked then and it would work now if the republicans would get the hell out of the way. It seems a qualification to be a republican is you’re not allowed to read history. Instead the republicans insist on creating these monuments to stupidity like a balanced budget. A balanced budget is no solace to someone who is out of work, trying to pay the rent and put food on the table. Do they even believe that America is hurting, it seems not? They fiddle while Rome burns. Nero would be a front runner in the republican nomination process.

It's a pathetic lie, yet there's liberal impeciles and soon to be extinct Obamabots falling for his lies once again. Maybe another hi-security bus ought to be manufactured specifically for Obama's teleprompter that was stolenn in Virginia today. I'm sure you numbnuts can justify that seeing your messiah is useless without one.

Interesting or did you think the American people would be to dumb that we wouldn't figure it out your bus was from the same Canadian manufacture....All of you can dish it out all day long but you sure can't take it..I am so glad you will be gone.You forgot where you came from, and you served our country but that doesn't make you entitled either. You are no longer for the American people. You should have left while you were on top, because you are not leaving on a high note......So very disappointed in you. You use to be my hero.....

So calling it a Canadian bus is an insult to American manufacturing. Tax payer dollars were spent on McCain's bus in 2008. Within 90 days of the election, the secret service is obligated to provide all security upgrades when the bus is put in service and then they have to do all the work to remove all the security mods when use of the bus is over. That's tax payer dollars. And whether its campaigning or government work or just a vacation doesn't matter with the President, they are obligated to provide security in any case.
