A town hall meeting...

I was in the area so I went up to Portsmouth, NH yesterday to check out the scene around the President's town hall meeting at the local high school. I was drawn more to the people against health care reform, I don't consider myself a photojournalist so I'm not trying to depict any kind of skew by photographing them more than the other side, they just happened to be more interesting looking to me.
It was a very frustrating scene. Both sides yelled things at each other that really neither sides cares about. So no one was going to convince either side of anything.
I was hoping to see the President, but I didn't. To be honest, the whole experience kind of bummed me out.
