One of the complaints against George Bush was that he lived in a bubble. He never knew what the ground realities were or which way the public opinion was because his advisors kept him sheltered. He even admitted to not reading any newspapers. So it is refreshing to see a President answer questions from people who clearly are not his supporters in a town that did not vote for him this past November. No loyalty oaths, no screened questions, no blacklisting; just the President and the citizens.
