article imagePres. Obama faces possible raucous town hall tomorrow in Montana

By Patrick McMahon     Aug 13, 2009 in Politics
President Obama will be holding his second town hall meeting this week tomorrow in Bozeman, Montana. Many believe that this town hall event will be much rowdier than Tuesday's meeting in New Hampshire.
While the town hall in New Hampshire was tame compared to recent public forums across the country, the event in Montana is expected to give Obama a less friendly reception then what he got in the Granite State.
Tickets are also being distributed in a different fashion, a first-come, first-serve basis. The Bozeman area is known to be a conservative one in Montana and roughly 1,300 people are expected to be inside during the event and over 500 outside protesting during the town hall.
In recent weeks, protests have gripped the nation as town halls across the country have been the site of heated discussion of health care reform. President Obama is to hold a third meeting on Saturday in Colorado, but tickets to that event are only available through the White House website.
If a contentious town hall meeting takes place tomorrow, it will mark the first time the president has been directly exposed to public anger during one of his town hall meetings. Major cable news networks plan to carry the president live.
