    John from St. Paul wanted to know why Obama has moved to the right. "Whose side is he on?" he asked. "What are progressives telling him?"

    Not to mention there's this part from the article:

    The tone at Tuesday's town hall meeting contrasted sharply with one she held at Macalester in 2009. At that session, conservatives strongly criticized Obama and his health plan, while liberals called for an expanded government role.

    This time, liberals complained about Obama's policies and the Republican Congress, and with an exception or two, almost no one showed up to argue for the other side.

    The President needs to hear more of this.  I'm definitely hearing from more and more people who are getting pretty damn frustrated with the President.  People can only take so much before they turn to despair.  They need to see him start fighting for them.
