President Obama was in Asheville yesterday, about 45 minutes away form Johnson city (near my school) and it was great. He ate ribs and hiked around the BRPT.
I was hoping to get him to go fishing with us, but he had a full day ahead of him already, maybe next time.
Anyway, everyone was really good towards him that we saw and we had one incident with a dude who looked like an evil harry potter.

Other than this wack job (who was from up north anyway), it was nice to see Pres. Obama hang around with us rednecks. I may not agree with him on all things but the guy is so much more down to earth than Bush.
