As President Obama cruises through the Midwest the next three days, he'll be riding in two buses -- sleek and black, with dark-tinted windows -- that cost $1.1 million, the Associated Press reports.

The White House says Obama will spend the roadtrip listening to voters vent their frustration with Washington and talk about their economic struggles. The full length of the bus:

I'm less upset about the bus than I am at all the campaigning he's doing.

Last night, Laura Ingram referred to the bus as "Death Star" and the tour itself as One Nation Under the Bus.  Very fitting!

what would cost the tax payers more sending him place to place with hordes of people on several other planes to get there before him and all the security crap needed before and after he is there than to plant his ass on a Bus with everyone needed right there(or 2 buses) To me its cheaper to bus him all over the damn place than fly his ass on 5 or 6 planes at a time place to place kwim?

 I think that's probably pretty cheap for presidential transportation. You have to figure the cost to make it bulletproof would make anything expensive.

take that into consideration when you have to fly him place to place.. to amp up security before during and after he gets there, all the planes needed to get him and everyone everywhere plus all the added security needed i would think it could Cost MORE to fly him all over the US than to Bus His ass all over 2 buses is Cheaper than 2 or 3 planes and all the security needed
