The Outsourcing Bus Tour Goes to Michigan!


President Bush rode across Ohio on Monday in a bus emblazoned, “Yes, America can.” It turns out the bus was made in Canada.

The front of the bus bore another label: Prevost Car, jointly owned by the Swedish Volvo Bus Corp. and Britain’s Henly’s Group PLC. Prevost’s manufacturing facility is in St. Claire, Quebec.

Foreign-made vehicles are a touchy topic in the job-strapped industrial Midwest - states like Michigan and Ohio, which Bush has been touring for two days.

More on the Fabulously Fony Bush tour at the Liquid List and Atrios.
