Hot Dogs & Beans

The president faces confrontation of startling sincerity and power from a supporter of Hope and Change.

At a CNBC town hall forum at Washington's Newseum on Monday, Obama heard from a working mother who said she's still waiting for the change that Obama had promised — and who feared that she and her family were headed for a return to the "hot dogs and beans era."

“Quite frankly, I'm exhausted.  I'm exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for, and deeply disappointed with where we are right now,” an African American woman and CFO said. “I have been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class.  I'm one of those people.  And I'm waiting, sir.  I'm waiting.  I -- I don't feel it yet.”

Wow. What ever happened to Obama's perfectly controlled crowds? Some advance man must be getting his butt whooped.

Obama responded that everything is not "where it needs to be," but that the nation is "moving in the right direction."
