The President has been quoted for the past few hours saying there are two things he likes about Asheville; the people and Bones, his favorite delli. This is the President's fourth visit to the mountains that he and Michelle, love. And I, for one, am proud to be an Ashevillian!

I have heard that Asheville is a lovely place but have not had the pleasure to have gone there. Did you get to go to see these events that Obama has been to? Bones, lol, name that sticks though, to the ribs.

Its great for Asheville that a Canadian Company is set up there and opened a tech college to train its employees to make parts for an American Icon, Caterpillar Inc. also known as "CAT!"

Obama is all talk and no delivery. While Obama weights heavy on the Middle Class, which he has ignored for the past four years by ignoring their job engine, our small businesses, he now swoops in and acts like he is "concerned" and wants to do something.

The POTUS needs to address all classes of Americans.....not just one....the poor, the lower middle class, the middle class, the upper middle class and the rich who, by the way, pay all the bills.

Obama is always so off message that it's a cartoon. He'll say anything at any time because he is in constant campaign mode. That's all he knows how to do...campaign....and he hasn't solved any problems among the classes except tax them at every turn.

I am super happy for you Barb! Like you said, no matter your feeling on Obama, it is still exciting to have the Pres visit your home town. It makes you feel like you have become part of an epic event. You go girl!

We took a vacation once to Asheville, which is near to Cherokee country, next to the Smokey Mountains.
It is great to know that they can put another feather in their cap, in terms of creating jobs.

I think it's great that President Obama is supporting this company in North Carolina which is a right to work state and this company is non-union. I wonder if that has led to its success. Just wondering...

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared. Hope Obama is able to pass some of State of the Union Agenda; it will help our economy, the poor, and the middle class.
