Disabled Veteran, he is the President of all of this country so if he is in NC or Washington he is still at home. By the way, where was Bush when the towers and the pentagon was hit? Do you think he should have stayed home also?

"Because staying home and working on important things like the national budget just ain't that important. Hold tightly to your pockets and purses NC! There will soon be a crook amongst us!"-disabled veteran
Many are already among us. Concentrated in the State Capitol and the governor's mansion. Not working on a budget or jobs but instead waving camera wands and stomping on the unemployed.

If he can't get anything done in DC, he may as well travel. And as long as he stays west like Ashville, he won't bother us too bad down east.
But, he was like Bill Clinton always wanting to come to Morehead, well,..that's different.

Visited Asheville 3 times...hmmm...how many times has he visited Ft Bragg or Camp Lejeune?

More campaigning...why doesn't he stay in DC and see if he can help Harry Reid pass a budget...
Or here's another idea...work on a realistic solution to the sequester cuts...
I'm so tired of our President of Propaganda...

Asheville is the only part of the state that sort of likes this ultra leftist, well maybe parts of Chapel Hill and Carrboro...
Billfisher Feb 11, 1:18 p.m.
Asheville and UNC-CH are about the only two places he's welcome in NC.

Hey,ah, Mr. President, the ah, campaign is over. You don't need to campaign anymore. Now you need to do the job you promised us you were going to do.
Just another bad guy Feb 11, 1:09 p.m.
I just came from Asheville... didn't see a single Romney bumper sticker.

Perhaps he knows NC has "buyer's remorse" with the clowns in Raleigh.
Welcome back to NC, Mr. President.

Wish he stay and visit in Washington DC and do his job, most worthless president ever.

How about he vists his inept Congress and see if he can't actually HELP THE DYING MIDDLE CLASS by doing something about gas prices.
Oh, and passing a budget for the first time in many years would be nice as well.
This country is doomed by the end of his second term.

Stay away obama, you have already killed enough jobs.
Disabled Vet Feb 11, 10:42 a.m.
I wonder what Asheville did to diserve this kind of punishment and bad publicity?
littleriver69 Feb 11, 8:01 a.m.
Why?? Save the money....stay in Washington and continue to do nothing.
