Oh, the irony: Secret Services choose to out-source Pres. Obama's tour buses

President Obama just launched a bus tour of the United States with a plan to talk about and produce jobs for troubled Americans. While that may sound perfectly normal, the buses are a problem, more specifically, where they're produced.

Despite being purchased in Tennessee, the flagship $1.1m Prevost VIP X3-45 model buses were actually built in Canada, according to The New York Post, which isn't a huge issue as President Bush did the same for his re-election campaign, but some have pointed out the irony of utilising out-sourced buses for an American job tour.

Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman, told the NYP, “There are certain security and communications equipment that we’ll have in there. It’s just a better situation for us rather than leasing something and then putting in temporary equipment.”
