ALPHA, Ill.--President Obama arrived at this bucolic spot for a town hall meeting Wednesday afternoon in his new, $1.1 million sleek black bus, an imposing vehicle with mixed U.S. and Canadian heritage.
A charge by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus that Obama is running "around in his Canadian bus" is not accurate because it does not tell the whole story.
