The "Bush Legacy Bus" -- featuring "several interactive exhibits" will make its debut in Miami Thursday. The liberal group, Americans United for Change, said the bus has been tricked out to point out "how two terms of failed conservative policies supported by Bush and his allies - including Sen. John McCain and U.S. Reps. Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Mario Diaz-Balart - have weakened America's security abroad while neglecting and undermining important priorities here at home."
The 45-foot long, 28-ton, clean bio-diesel powered museum on wheels, will make its latest stop on the "Bush Legacy Tour" at 11 a.m. Thursday at 7780 NW 25th Street, "where the people of Florida will be given an opportunity to reflect on how 8 years of failed Bush/McCain/conservative policies have left an economy in shambles..." the group says. It'll also poke at the Diaz-Balarts for "voting in lockstep with the conservative agenda nearly 90 percent of the time, according to Congressional Quarterly."
The tour left the White House June 24 with stops in the "hometowns of Bush's enablers in Congress," as well as a visit to the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas.
The bus stop is apparently McCain/Palin HQ in Doral and the South Florida AFL-CIO says it will hold a demonstration to coincide with the bus's debut.
"The South Florida AFL-CIO represents workers who are standing behind 'Real Change' on behalf of the middle class, and not those who have supported President Bush and his anti-worker polices that are now attempting to reinvent themselves," said Fred Frost, president of the South Florida AFL-CIO.
