That black Barth 36' looks something like the Prince of Platitude's new Canadian $1,100,000 x 2 motorcoaches he bought with your tax dollars for his aimless "jobs" tour in the Heartland last week.

Here it is, one of the President's fancy new One million plus Canadian built buses used for his taxpayer paid electioneering junket last week;



I wonder if those Canadian buses run on sunshine and windmills?

Um, Dick, he's referring to OUR President. A favorite subject of your, I know.

Anyway, this is Barthmobile.com where heavy politics are not needed, wanted or usually tolerated.

Let's move on to discussing important things like generators that won't start cheers

An excellent response, and timely in nature less we fall into the trap of badmouthing our elected officials and alienating "one or two" of our members. Thank you Corey for the reminder.

But... Can't we still admire a beautifully crafted, foreign built, coach that was built for 1.1 Million with a Chinese loan & our tax dollars without it getting political? I mean, I got my coach from the fact that New York State purchased a Barth on the taxpayers dime, and also my kids future earnings. Perhaps, like me, 13yrs in the future, someone will also pay $500 for their Prevost too.

And, you really can't blame them for building a tank like that. For better or worse, depending on your political stripes, he is "The President Of The United States". It's not like he can ride the rails and wave out of the back of a Caboose anymore between stops.

Hopefully this discussion can remain "On Point" and not delve into name calling. "Prince of Platitude", while tame by most names I've heard him called, is still name calling. Please Roger, for the sake of my sanity, I'm going to ask you to refrain from the "Name Calling" in the future. nono

Obviously, because it is a Motorhome, and everything else I've said seems to be factual in nature, I won't "Censor" my response. Rusty, if you think I've crossed the line, please do your unpaid & thankless job and delete this.

BTW: just as a matter of record... The Secret Service ordered two buses like the one Obama used this week. The other is for the eventual Republican Presidential nominee.

Thanks for that Bill Thumbs Up

It's an interesting phenomena that when I think about my country's politicians I can be very critical, but when somebody disses them from another country, I'm instantly defensive of them. This is a good thing to remember when dealing in International affairs, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones". That sage advice works as well in the US as Canada, as Mexico......as Libya .....and so on.

Back to the Prevost bus. Honestly, I can't imagine how it cost so little. It has to be armored, full of interesting comms and defensive weaponry. I'm thinking the bus shell was $1M and it's got $20M worth of cool gear built around it.

At the risk of sounding like Dale on King of the Hill, I wonder if the President actually is transported in it. I'll bet it's a king size decoy! Stored at Area 51........

Heck, I was just going to say that we now know Rush Scumball makes it to Canadien airwaves too. I had to go to work this morning before I could post it and I find all this tonight! I don't dis whatever you canucks call leaders, and I'd appreciate the same respect from someone who doesn't live in the USA.

on a second thought - does he have to register that bus, pay highway use tax, IFTA, can he run taxfree diesel in it? How much does the driver earn (does he get paid by the mile and has to keep a logbook?) Does he ever get stopped at a weigh station (safety you know)? And more important - what kind of toiletpaper is he using? You know - to wipe up all that - but nonono I am not going politics.

I hope he doesn't get that thing hung up like he did his Caddy limo in Europe. It would probably take a crane to get it moving again.
