President Obama flew in to Asheville Regional Airport on Air Force One today. Before beginning his speech he gave Asheville a shout-out, hinting to a possible move to the mountains for retirement.“I love coming to Asheville," said Obama. "Michelle and I always talk about how if—after this whole presidency thing—we’re looking for a little spot to… [responding to audience shout out] come on down.”
“Play a little golf, do a little hiking, fishing, barbecue. There are two things that keep bringing me back here. Number one is I really like the people, and number two is 12 Bones.”
The President grabbed take out at the popular BBQ restaurant before heading out of town.
