Just Like He's on the Trail: Barack Obama's Interactive Presidency

President Obama, nearly 4 months after he left the campaign trail and nearly 2 months since he entered another trail as the nation's Chief Executive, there's still a feeling that he's still on the campaign trail.

Since President Obama walked through the doors of the Oval Office on January 20th, he rarely spends much time in the there. You can probably find him speaking to congress, speaking to everyday business owners at a White House Summit or flying across the country to have open conversation town hall meetings, similar to his look before November 4th, sleeves rolled up, suit jacket laying across his stool, clasping the microphone and a bottle of spring water.

It has been a long time, many say since Reagan, that the President has ventured beyond the bubble of Washington to personally hear the plight and opinion of the everyday American. This interactive appoach is giving Americans a sense of security in this time of crisis, economically, domestically and internationallly. The approach of the American people by President Barack Obama is encouraging and uplifting at a time when America was just about to give up faith in their federal government.

I would get my questions ready, because President Obama may be coming to town near you.

  1. Great article, I think Obama is definitely trying his hardest to connect to the American poeple. Also, he said he wants to be as open as possible and not always sitting behind a desk separated from ordinary mortals.
