Amateur video of Obama’s Canadian built armored buses and the complete motorcade driving by a Ford dealership.

I can’t help but wonder just how much fossil fuel was wasted and pollutants were emitted from the tail pipe of both buses, all of those Police Cars, SUVs and other assorted vehicles in the procession, just so Obama could try to appear as if he actually cared about Americans.

Fox News reports, “Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost U.S. jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built — in Canada…”

From the looks of the motorcade, it appears he is boosting jobs,,,,,, for Saudi Oil Workers.
