President Obama's town hall question-of-the-year

The question of the year was asked by a little boy during a Louisiana town hall meeting. He asked the president, " Why do people hate you so much?"
The president seemed shocked. I was shocked but blessed by the truth that can touch children. Out of the mouths of babes, huh?
The president told him he was not hated and that he got a lot of votes.
Adults have to tell children that. But don't think for one moment that we all weren't waiting to hear the answer. Adults are too ashamed to ask such simple questions.
But why would a fourth grade boy think that people hate the president? I wonder where he got that idea? Anyone?

Obama says he'll accept Nobel as 'call to action' - Yahoo! News

Obama says he'll accept Nobel as a call to action - Yahoo! News
I am glad the president won the Nobel prize. It was pleasant news to me this morning. Then again, I am not a hate-filled shrew with an axe to grind.
