Children from public schools in the town of Chatfield, Minnesota, help U.S. President Barack Obama get up after he posed with them for a picture, during his bus trip to the Midwest August 15, 2011. Obama blasted Republicans over taxes on Monday as he launched a bus tour of the U.S. Midwest to tout his job-growth strategy and distance himself from anger toward Washington that could dent his 2012 re-election hopes. Obama is traveling on a bus tour through Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. REUTERS/Jason Reed (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS EDUCATION IMAGES OF THE DAY PROFILE) less
