Fourth Grader to Obama: ‘Why Do People Hate You?’


Yesterday, at a New Orleans town hall, a fourth grader asked Obama, "Why do people hate you? They're supposed to love you. And God is love."

Replied Obama: "First of all, I did get elected president, so not everybody hates me. What is true is if you were watching TV lately, it seems like everybody's just getting mad all the time. And I -- you know, I think that you've got to take it with a grain of salt. Some of it is just what's called politics where, you know, once one party wins, then the other party kind of gets -- feels like it needs to poke you a little bit to keep you on your toes."

Elsewhere, Glenn Beck put some Vicks under his eyes and got weepy and nostalgic for the good old days — lost America (back when, you know, Black guys were just football players and not the President).
