Obama Should Copy Tea Party Express Message, Not Tea Party Bus Tour!

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express accepts the flattery from President Barack Obama for conducting a bus tour across the American heartland. As they say, “Imitation is the highest form of flattery.”

But like his economic and fiscal policies, Obama has it wrong again.

1. The Tea Party Express bus tours are paid for by private, small donations from citizens who give voluntarily to take back their country. In contrast, President Obama is paying for his bus tour by charging taxpayers the tab for an obvious political tour to gain his own re-election.

2. The purpose of the Tea Party Express tour is to get Washington to wake up to the fact that America can no longer grow the intrusive federal government, spend money in record amounts or continue to skyrocket the national debt. President Obama is promoting a bigger government with higher taxes and more spending, a policy that has failed to restore America’s economic health and contrary to the effective policies for creating jobs promoted by President John F. Kenney and Ronald Reagan.

3. The Tea Party Express went to Massachusetts to call attention to the failed policies promoted by Congressman Barney Frank that resulted in the housing bubble and collapse, the root of many of our current economic problems. In stark contrast, President Obama is going to Massachusetts for 10 days to play golf and go yachting on Cape Cod at taxpayer expense.

We appreciate the flattery, but we would rather Obama got it right!
