President Barack Obama is in New Hampshire today for a campaign event. According to the White House pool report, after he arrived at the airport in Manchester this morning, President Obama stopped to shake hands with “a couple dozen supporters” on a rope line. The crowd at the airport included two toddlers holding American flags who were greeted by the president, but apparently “looked a bit disinterested.”
“I do great with the 2-3 year old crowd,” President Obama joked.
His remark reportedly earned laughs from the people on the rope line. Perhaps President Obama’s desire to appeal to the nursery school set explains his campaign’s focus on Big Bird in recent weeks.
