At a town hall event in New Orleans, President Obama took a question from a fourth-grader named Tyren Scott who wanted to know, "Why do people hate you?"

"They're supposed to love you," he continued.

After the crowd swooned, Obama responded that the boy should take criticism of him with "a grain of salt."

"One party feels like they need to poke you, keep you on your toes," he said.

"When things are tough, you're gonna get some of the blame," Obama said. But, he added, "I'm a tough guy. Are you a tough guy? You look pretty tough."

I didn't see a problem with it. The kid likes Obama and probably looks up to him.
edit: Also, Obama handled it well.

Because they don't see him for the bourgeois reactionary he really is.

Obama is such an evil communist bastard.

Nah, he's clearly a fascist. Hitler was a good speaker and so is Obama, therefore Obama is a fascist.

Yeah. Don't get me wrong, I support Obama and I want him to do a good job, but I just have a feeling this is totally set up.

If it's not set up though, good job Barack.

Reported.

Also, I like Obama. I voted for him, I support many of his decisions, not all, but many, and I feel like he is trying to do something great for us. Granted, most presidents do, but not everything always works out the way people want. People need to stop reading between the lines with his motives and get over it.

I love the fact that there's an ad right beside the article saying:

OBAMA CARE! Let's stop him. Vote here!
We shouldn't stop Obama. We should START him.

No, that wouldn't be a reason that the NPP committee usually gives the prize. That was rather silly of you.
