President Obama Rides Bus Made in Canada

One rule of leadership is to avoid mixed messages.

President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built -- in Canada, The Post has learned.

The $1.1 million vehicle, one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government, has been tricked out by the Secret Service with state-of-the-art security features and creature comforts.

It's a VIP H3-45 model, the company's top of the line, and is used by major traveling rock bands.

It's likely an embarrassment for President Obama to preach boosting jobs for Americans after boosting jobs for Canadians in constructing his million-dollar ride.
