President Barack Obama’s visit to Preston Hollow drew plenty of news coverage and even a few protestors. Standing at Hillcrest and Northwest Highway, 15 protestors voiced opposition against Obamacare, toting signs saying, “Honk to impeach” and “Don’t mess with Texas.” The President stayed in Dallas for a total of four hours, attending two high-dollar fundraisers and commending volunteers at Temple Emanu-El for supporting Obamacare.
