President Obama

President Obama was here in Elkhart, IN today. He was here for his first townhall meeting. Of course, I wasn't able to get tickets. But I watched on TV.. Both of my grandkids also watched at school. One in kindergarten and the other in 9th grade.

His press conference this evening, started out by talking about Elkhart. How high our unemployment rate is (the highest in the nation) and how empty our food pantries are. It is really bad, here.

I'm scared.
