Louis Gohmert: Obama Riding 'Darth Vader Bus' On 'Magical Misery Tour' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:
President Barack Obama visited three states on his bus tour this week, stopping often to talk with constituents about jobs and the economy. |

U.S. Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) criticized President Barack Obama's bus tour of the Midwest during an appearance on Fox Business Tuesday night.

The Republican congressman characterized the trip as the president riding in "his Darth Vader bus" on a "magical misery tour." He also compared Obama to an "evil emperor."

Gohmert suggested the president needs to "stop this hurtful rhetoric" when it comes to his support of the wealthy Americans paying their fair share when it comes to taxes.

The White House bus tour has taken the president through Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. The trip has given Obama the opportunity to meet with constituents and speak about the job crisis, as well as the state of the economy after the deficit debate.
