    Oooh I arrived here just in time to see my President! The local reporters are tres excited!

      hopefruit2, nit only are the anchors happy the President of the United States are visiting there town, the people seem to be happy too. They just spoke to a six grade who said he was glad the President was visiting them and he wanted to give the President a hug. These folks seem nice and polite.

    We here in California are very spoiled. Our anchor people have gotten so accustom to PBO visiting that they no longer gush like these are doing.

    SIXTH GRADE BOY THERE WANTS TO GIVE PBO….A HUG…I’M GOING TO CRY AND HE HASN’T EVEN STARTED YET…I AM SUCH A HORMONAL SHMUCK!!!!!

    Thanks JER for the local links!

    Cannot express how much I LOVE local coverage when the President visits.

    Such a breath of fresh air, everyone in Watertown is soooo excited.

    Loved the 6th grade boy who said he wants to give PBO a big hug (he should speak to Judith to find out what’s it really like!).

    Respect the President even if you didn’t vote for him, respect the office. Even when G.W. was in office, I would show him respect if I had ever had the chance to meet him. I wouldn’t have thrown my shoe at him. Now Dick Cheney is a whole different story. When you had seen me taking into custody I would have been shoeless.

      Thanks Nerdy! I’m glad you posted these tweets specifically highlighting how warmly and respectfully the local reporters are treating our President – considering there are some petty outlets (Which shall remain nameless at the moment) that are searching high and low for a negative angle to our President’s South Dakota visit.

      This is America, that unfortunately been hijacked by echo-chamber MSM to whip up “tea party” baloney.

      PBO’s approval rate would be at 75% if it weren’t for the traitorous MSM.

    That’s what they mean by “Minnesota Nice”. It’s the same in the Dakotas. Love the newsroom conversation lol, they are so genuine. Watertown is only 21,995 so one can appreciate how BIG a deal this is.

      That’s such a great picture. i don’t know why it’s very emotional for me, perhaps because it is iconic of capturing Upper Midwest welcomeness and respect and shyness all in one photo.
