President Obama only rode the buses for a couple of miles at a time, spending the rest of the time flying from community to community in Air Force One. What’s more, the buses were flown from stop to stop as well. It’s normal practice for the President’s entire motorcade to be loaded up on cargo planes and flown from destination to destination. The buses were just a new part of that motorcade.
Wonder what the carbon footprint from this little “meet the people” campaign trip was? Air Force One, massive cargo planes carrying a huge bus along with the many hardened SUVs of a presidential entourage, and Air Force fighter planes that routinely scramble to protect Air Force One.
Lefties who lecture us and preach about “global
warming cooling climate change” surely don’t practice what they preach. Of course, Obama also claimed that upon his election, the planet would heal and the seas would stop rising.
Barack H. Obama, where the “H” stands for “Hypocrite.”
