        When the President rolls into Chattanooga, he'll have hundreds of people and signs greeting him.
        "I hope he sees that we're excited about his changes and to keep pushing and we'll be with him and that we are with him 100 percent," said Jennifer Waxenburg.
        With many local groups planning protests outside of the Obama's speech at Amazon, this group wants to show positive support.
        "He is the President of the United States and just based on that fact alone he deserves our respect," said Erin Lutz.
        "He needs to know he's doing a good job with all the nay-sayers and all the negative talk," said Jamila Surles-Walker.
        They all agree that it speak volumes for this city that the President has chosen Chattanooga as a stop on his tour.
        "He needs to get to good communities.  Small town communities.  Large enough to matter but small enough to mean he's engaged," said local business owner Joe Ledbetter.
        "I think it shows that we are forward thinking.  We have big things going on here," said Waxenburg.

Ha ha. WDEF isn't even bothering to cover this jokers visit. They opted to show young & the restless. A soap opera makes more sense than this joker.

You did a good job by not allowing any Obama haters to be on tv..Why don't you tell it like it is. Just please tell the public just what it is he has accomplished?. C.D.U

I'm sick to death of hearing he deserves respect because of his job. He's anti-american, anti God, anti obamacare since he's exempting himself & other elected officials. He's stepped all over the respect & rights of americans while supporting our enemies. All the mindless followers of this man deserve what they get, which is more debt, less rights. Follow along like cattle.....

Would she say the same for Stalin, Mao, etc.? He is the leader of our country and deserves respect? Being democrats, Obama supporters probably dont know who those historical figures are. Obama is an employee of the people, and has no right to trample our freedoms and religion. We have a responsibility to hold those in office accountable, and to not allow them to disregard our laws. Americans have a right to protest, a right to free speech, a RIGHT TO ASSEMBLE! We need to assemble today AT AMAZON to protest the policies of this disgraceful administration
