My husband and I married in 1970. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother to 5. I share my health stories and my experiences with Thrive. I am reading and writing blogs, watching tv, making jewelry and rosaries, selling in my Etsy store and playing solitaire. I am home bound and add in my physical therapy exercises to my daily routine. I will blog about my progress or anything that catches my attention at that moment. See you around and thanks for stopping by!
No, this is not a story about audacity. This ‘story’ is an example of audacity. The buses were ordered and purchased through a Tennessee company called Hemphill Brothers Coach. The basic chassis is built in Canada, but all the customizing and outfitting of the vehicle, done to Secret Service requirements, is done in America by Hemphill.
In answer to your statement, “AND!.. Believe it or not…this process is REPEATED FOR EVERY CAMPAIGN STOP.” I don’t believe it! I’ve searched the web and there is not even a hint of what you describe about flying from stop to stop, unloading the bus, transferring the entourage from plane to bus back to plane, taking off and landing at another airport to repeat it all over again from any reliable source. It just doesn’t pass the smell test.
Do you realize that Air Force One (both of them) are highly modified 747s and are HEAVY! There aren’t that many municipal airports in the mid-west that can handle a normal 747, much less one of these big babies. Matter of fact, this tour you’re referring to occurred in mid-August of last year (2011), started in Minnesota and ended in Illinois, and was accompanied by reporters following in another bus all the way.
This story is full of lies. “When (Satan) lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” Jn. 8:44
Thanks for the info. I didn’t write the article, I just passed it along as something of interest.
