During his visit to KC, President Obama listens to ordinary folks

The president feasted on working-class delicacies in Kansas City as he sought to bond with people unaccustomed to having the ear of the most powerful man in the world. At Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque, he met with four White House-chosen Kansas Citians over a half slab of ribs and a Bud Light and discussed how what he does in Washington registers in people’s lives.
