Obama to Ride Bus Around Midwest, Yelling 'Jobs'

Don't fret, Sarah Palin! Stay home in Arizona or Alaska, wherever you summer. Because President Obama has decided to do the Midwestern second leg of your bus tour for you. That's right: Obama will ride around on a bus, too, as part of the great White House "pivot" to a focus on jobs, which no longer exist.

From The Hill:

President Obama is planning a bus tour through the Midwest this summer in a trip intended to shore up political support in battleground states.

The president will embark on the bus tour, a rare mode of travel for a sitting president, later this month, a White House official said Wednesday. The tour will be run by the White House, not Obama's reelection campaign.

This seems like a good idea. What else would he do in August from his stately perch back east? We already have enough people here doing the necessary work of freaking out about Muslims.
