President Obama has announced plans for a bus tour of Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois to hear ideas from average folks about how to create jobs (apparently having run out of his own ideas). With apologies because I will be too busy working to show up for his bus tour / photo op, as an average citizen I’ll just share a couple of quick ideas here:

– cut tax rates;

– dump Obamacare;

– slash regulations (particularly environmental ones);

– lower the cost of fuel and electricity;

– slash spending and balance the budget.

Does Mr. Obama really need a bus tour to figure this out? Like so many other things with this presidency, this bus tour is a phony excuse to get out on the campaign trail. It sure beats working.
