Great way of pulling up stakes in a state you have no hope of winning.

Didn’t Obama monitor Benghazi too?

Just as well they found an excuse.

Colorado Springs and El Paso County are deep Red - the GOP bastion of CO.

Why a Democratic President would even schedule time bothering to campaign there is mystery only known to Obama Campaign staffers.

...but couldn’t cancel a fund-raiser in Las Vegas (a place put on the 'no travel list' earlier in his Presidency) during an historic attack on a US consulate where the US Amabassador and 3 other Americans were murdered? Right....

Monitor, as in monitoring the terrorist attack in Libya, refusing a military response, going to bed, allowing Americans to die, and flying to Vegas for fundraising? Coward-monitoring.

My my! What a “coincidence” that he cancels events in CO and VA, just as they slip away for good from him

Hmmm.... Yes.. it was Hurricane Sandy that made him cancel the visit in Colorado...

Mark my words, NC, FL, CO and VA have been written off by the President’s team

It is now defending OH, WI, IA and NH. That is their firewall.

The President has to sweep all four of them. The Governor on the other hand can any three of them or just OH

In addition, I truly believe MI will be the shock of the night.

PA, MN, OR stand out as possibilities if the Governor reaches the 53% mark nationally

Obama knows he is toast!!! He is not interested in campaigning....he just wants to play POTUS, fly around in his “personal” Jet aircraft, hang out with Letterman, Leno, the View gals, MTV, etc. The last thing in the world he wants to do or be is the “real” POTUS. End of story!!!

LOL! Do you think any one in COS is going to vote for Obama?

Romney would have the same luck campaigning in Boulder or Pueblo here.

"The rally that was scheduled in Colorado Springs’ Red Rock Canyon Open Space park on Tuesday...."

He probably doesn't want people to contrast the huge Red Rock rally for Romney with the lesser crowd he would probably attract.

He probably has a golf game scheduled for sometime this week. Worried about whether he should cancel.

I’m sure the people of Colorado Springs are heartbroken.

No hope for the dope in Colorado and his non stop sleeping on AF1 campaign has him longing to be back amongst his homies.

Also, now it is certain to bypass DC the perfect time to return to the command hut. I vote for his going to the Steel Pier and commanding the storm to go out to sea. I’d put him on a donkey and he can impersonate the horse dive into the pool which used to be an attraction there.

Maybe he can monitor the sand storm in Libya too?

There are not that many liberals in COS.

There are some places you don’t waste your time on in this country. An Obama campaign stop won’t change how El Paso votes.

They knew their rally would not compare favorably with the over-the-top Romney Rally at Red Rocks that Gina, a caller who had attended, reported to Rush’s show last week. She gave a great synopsis of the enormous gathering of super-enthusiastic voters that attended.

Perhaps Obama’s people caught that show and knew their own rally would flop. After all, his voters don’t walk miles uphill for anything that doesn’t end with them getting free stuff.

Colo Spgs is republican. It’s a good place for him to skip so he can ‘’look presidential’’ in the wake of Sandy.

Reminiscent of McCain suspending his campaign and rushing to Washington.

But but but ... according to Team Obama mouthpieces, Obama can do everything from AF-1. So why does he need to be back in Washington to monitor Hurricane Sandy?

Answer: Because the election is just over a week away and he needs to be seen as being PRESIDENTIAL.

This is kind of misleading, Red Rocks Apmitheatre is in Denver County, Red Rocks park is 90 miles away in Colo Springs.

“Barry, the media need help making you look ‘presidential’. How about pretending you’re more concerned with the hurricane than re-election?”

“Well, if the media think that’s best and have the stories you gave them ready to go... say, I’ve been dying to play some of Malia’s new video games.”

“Sure, here’s what we gave the NYTimes: ‘Hero President risks re-election to personally save women and minorities from killer hurricane.’ “

He wants to get back to the Situation Room to watch the devastation and then fly away to Las Vegas on Air Force One nestled sleeping in his kingly bed.

Didn’t Obama monitor Benghazi too?

Maybe he wants to be sure to watch while people in the Northeast get blown away. Or -- he needs a little extra sleep for a fundraising trip to Las Vegas.

I noticed Odopeo was scheduled to have a stop at Red Rocks.

Ain’t hard to figger it out why he decided to monitor the storm instead.

I do hope he does a better monitor job than he did with Libya. He stands to lose all his east coast moron votes.

Couldn't he have done that to monitor the Benghazi attack? ....Oh wait, he did then went onto bed and had no recall other than that of some horrid video deriding Islam.....

Can anyone imagine Allan West seeing what was happening , and going to bed?

he has directed his team to continue to bring all available resources to bear

And that is leadership ladies and gentlemen .... just imagine if he hadn't decisively barked out these orders ... his team would probably have just sat around in their pajamas and watched football on TV. The POTUS has spoken !

He was in Denver the very next day, and the local media briefly reported that there were many more attendees for Obama then Romney. They eventually changed that to it “seemed” there were many more attendees.

Not so sure. By doing this he avoids Bush’s mistake during Katrina and helps with his image in Virginia. He doesn’t need CO if he can get VA.

You can almost hear a collective sigh of relief on all of the Sunday shows this morning as the sycophantic press has been given this storm to talk about instead of Libya.

Hold on - why is this hurricane even daring to come ashore? Weren’t the oceans supposed to recede? Did Sandy not get the email? Why doesn’t the messianic president just raise his hand and instruct the storm to cease?

What a joke this guy is.
