Secret Service defends Canadian bus
(Tannen Maury/EPA)August 17, 2011 |By James OliphantWhen the U.S. Secret Service decided to order two custom-made buses, including the one that transported President Obama through the upper Midwest this week, they had a specific model in mind.
The service, which has been transporting protectees by bus since Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign, wanted a particular model only available from the Quebec-based manufacturer Prevost.

"This is an outrage that the taxpayers of this country would have to foot the bill so that the campaigner-in-chief can run around in his Canadian bus and act as if he is interested in creating jobs in our country," the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, said Tuesday.
Other conservatives were snarkier. Wrote Dana Loesch, a "tea party" activist and CNN contributor, on Twitter on Tuesday, "Nothing says 'Let's tour America and talk about jobs!' than a big, black, hearse mobile of doom."
President George W. Bush used a bus from the same manufacturer, Quebec-based Prevost, for a spring 2004 "Yes, America Can" campaign tour through the Midwest.

Steve Ziegler, the director of business development for Prevost, says the company only designed the outer shell of the luxury bus.
The customization was done by Tennesse's Hemphill Brothers Coach Co., and the U.S. Secret Service which ordered the bus put in a few finishing touches.
The Post reports that the vehicle is modified to carry all the president's equipment, including codes to the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
But the Quebec-based bus-maker has no role in such things related to so-called nuclear footballs.
