(THE RIGHT NEWZ) This will be the bus the Demorats use to trail Romney in swing-states. They can’t run on O’s record.
The Democratic National Committee is rolling out another bus tour to trail Mitt Romney’s own over the weekend through key battle ground states, harping on the Republican candidate’s economic policies as throwing “the middle class under the bus.”
The DNC tour will last for four days and make stops in Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio between Friday and Monday starting in Alexandria, Virginia on Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET, according to their announcement
The bus debuted Thursday parked, as a not-so-subtle jab, outside the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington. The tour, called “Romney Economics: The Middle Class Under the Bus,” will mirror Romney’s travel plans over the weekend.
Romney is expected to travel through Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio. CNN first reported the GOP candidate’s four-day bus tour last week.
“Throughout Mitt Romney’s career, middle-class families have frequently found themselves thrown under the bus as a result of his failed record and top-down economic policies. When Romney was Governor of Massachusetts, the number of business startups fell by 10 percent and hit its lowest point during his last year in office. Massachusetts ranked 47th out of 50 in job creation, and Romney hiked taxes and fees by $750 million a year in addition to saddling the Commonwealth with the highest debt per person in the country,” wrote the DNC in a release about the tour, which also says Romney’s economic policies would “erode middle-class security.”
This is the DNC’s second bus tour following Romney as he campaigns throughout the country. In June, a tour by the same name stopped in key battle ground states like Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Hampshire.
