Not everyone was there to slobber over Obama.
As Obama arrived at Parkville Middle School just after 10 a.m., a diverse crowd of onlookers included a 10-year-old girl filled with awe and a 53-year-old unemployed woman filled with ire.Here's some video. I don't spot his trusty Teleprompter and he frequently looks at prepared text. Maybe he's learned to avoid that crutch when speaking in classrooms.
Shanyah James, 10, stood outside the school with her father, Rodney James, holding a copy of the book Yes We Can. "He's the first African-American president," said Shanyah James, who is also African-American. "This is like a historical moment for me."
Not so for Bernadette Zgorski. "I'm here because I'm unemployed," said Zgorski, 53, of Churchville. "It's unbelievable. It's his policies that I object to."
While most of the people outside of Parkville Middle School carried signs of support, Zgorski carried a handwritten poster that read: "We want jobs. Not Obamacare."
