RALEIGH — The hottest ticket on the North Carolina State campus Monday wasn’t for a rock band or basketball game.

Instead, hundreds of students stood in line for a chance to see the president of the United States.

Less than 500 tickets were up for grabs, and many missed out.

President Obama’s visit to North Carolina and the NCSU campus Wednesday has been billed as “an event on the economy.”

In a statement released Saturday, NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson said, “We are honored to welcome President Obama and look forward to demonstrating how NC State is a pre-eminent research enterprise that excels in driving economic growth and educating the workforce of the future.”

According to WTVD, some political experts think the president will touch on the lack of unemployment benefits in North Carolina.

They also believe his visit is helping solidify North Carolina’s growth and role as a big political battleground.

    He’s there to explain why no jobs are waiting on them when they finish collage. But not to worry you can live off the tax payer like the 47% of his voters.

      Can you please state your sources showing 47% of his supporters live off the tax payers? I think you are randomly pulling numbers out of your rear end.

        Wow. Enough said . Mr. Intellectual, more people on welfare and food stamps and more on disability than ever in the history of what used to be as great country. Liberals are so full of themselves.

        Careful, @Intellectual–you’re asking Tea Partiers to use reason, facts and logic rather than a misquoted, biased number they culled from one of Romney’s failed speeches.

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
