President Barack Obama ‘Magical Misery Tour’ is really Swing state Campaign

LITCHFIELD, N.H. — Mitt Romney slammed President Barack Obama in advance of the president’s bus tour of midwestern states Monday, derisively calling it the “Magical Misery Tour,” a play on the iconic 1967 Beatles album “Magical Mystery Tour.”

Romney, the current national frontrunner for the GOP nomination, continued to execute his campaign strategy of hammering the president while virtually ignoring his two most salient Republican rivals for the nomination –Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

“During his Magical Misery bus tour this week, it is unlikely President Obama will speak with unemployed Americans, to near-bankrupt business owners, or to families struggling to survive in this economy,” the campaign said in a statement released prior to Obama’s arrival in Minnesota Monday.

President Obama boards his bus after arriving at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Monday.

“He is more interested in campaigning in swing states than working to solve the economic crisis that is crushing the middle class,” it continued. “Turning this economy around will require real leadership and the experience of someone who has actually worked in the private sector.”

While the president embarks on a 3-day tour of three midwestern states that will take him to Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, Romney was back in New Hampshire Monday after a two-day trip to Iowa last week.
