PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I want products all across the world stamped with three words, "Made in America"

However, "made in America" doesn't exactly describe his brand new bus dubbed Greyhound One.
The New York Post first reported, the shell of the million dollar behemoth was actually made in Canada by Quebec based company Prevost.
The frame then went to a Tennessee based retailer where custom interior and security upgrades were added.
There are dozens of bus manufacturers within the U.S. though it is unclear just how many of those companies offer something similar to the Canadian model.
End of Days?
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta Tuesday, predicted that after 151 days of U.S. and NATO involvement, Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi's days are numbered.
There's a reason that phrase may sound familiar to you.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Qaddafi's camp, people around him are starting to recognize that their options are limited and their days are numbered.
JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Their days are numbered, the days of this regime are numbered."
ADMIRAL MICHAEL MULLEN, CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF: I actually do believe his days are numbered.
CARNEY: Muammar Qaddafi's days are numbered.
HILLARY CLINTON, SECRETARY OF STATE: We do understand and agree that his days are numbered.
LEON PANETTA, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: I think the sense is that Qaddafi's days are numbered.
Some are trying to figure out what the number is.
Finally, retailer Abercrombie and Fitch has a message for the cast of the TV show "Jersey Shore" -- "keep our clothes out of your gym, tan, laundry routine."
The clothing line has offered to pay cast members to stop wearing its brand, saying "The Situation" and his hard-partying friends could hurt the company's image.
MTV calls the wardrobe request a clever PR stunt.
