Obama’s New Pennsylvania Push: ‘Buy American, Vote Obama’

“If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes,” [Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the chairwoman of the DNC] said at a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor.

WASHINGTON — President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built — in Canada, The Post has learned.

The $1.1 million vehicle, one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government, has been tricked out by the Secret Service with state-of-the-art security features and creature comforts.

It’s a VIP H3-45 model, the company’s top of the line, and is used by major traveling rock bands.

“That’s the more luxurious model,” Christine Garant of Prevost told The Post.

“When we have the Country Music Awards, we sometimes see a lot of them,” she said, noting that Kid Rock, David Lee Roth and Kenny Rogers also have owned them.

Update: “Buy Canadian and summer at Martha’s Vineyard?” Ed Morrissey asks at Hot Air, noting, “It seems that no one at the White House knows how to handle optics.  This August will be a festival of failure on that score.”

And Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) adds, “Well, I guess he not only likes Canadian health care, but he likes Canadian RV’s.”
