Obama to Denver and Phoenix next week

WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Barack Obama will continue his tour around the country to push his economy recovery plan, making stops in Colorado and Arizona next week, the White House announced Friday.

Obama will travel to Denver on Tuesday to discuss his economic stimulus package. The president will spend Tuesday night in Arizona and will visit Phoenix on Wednesday, where he will deliver a speech and outline his plan to decrease home foreclosures.

Obama traveled to areas hit hard by the economic downturn this past week, holding town hall meetings in Elkhart, Indiana and Fort Myers, Florida. He met with workers at a Caterpillar plant in Peoria, Illinois on Thursday, after the company announced 22,000 layoffs.

    The campaign is over and he won. Why is he still campaigning? He needs to stay in DC and do what you libs elected him to do.

    We are not being told the truth about the magnitude of the problems along the Mexican border.

    Mexico City- Kidnapping Capitol of the world.

    Phoenix- coming in at a close 2nd.

    Get ready, America. I know i am.

    What about other guys from Obama admn and the democrats .... what the hell are they doing? They need to get their butt off of DC and start talking to the press and the public.

    Republicans are dominating the media in their attack on the President and his policies. Also, repubs have their own media mouth piece in FOX, Hannity, Rush etc. If it not the time for the dems to come out and defend their turf, I don't know when is the right time.

    I hope this foreclosure plan will not reward those who were fiscally irresponsible. That would be a slap in the face to those of us who lived within our means and did not use our home as a personal piggy bank to keep up with the Joneses. If they can be irresponsible and be bailed out what's to prevent them from doing it again. These people are adults and there should be consequences.

    Just proves my point every single day.

    He does not sit in his office and do his work.

    He is a constant campainger and cheerleader.

    The guy is a naive boy and a joke to his party. He really has know idea what he is doing. He will be the worst president of all time.

    to Andy J, Upstate NY:

    You're paranoid, calm down and focus. Obama is traveling around the country to talk about the stimulus bill, not about your paranoia and obsession with kidnappings. I'm in Denver and am looking forward to what he has to say. His visit will be interesting and we're excited to have him back in Denver again.

    Andy... and where did you get that stat from, your rear perhaps?

    Obama... save the jet fuel and stay home.
    AZ is a RED state. We voted for McCain, not you.

    with all of his running around, he's spending more of the taxpayer's money. This guy just doesn't know how to run his ship from his office. At this pace we'll be even more in the hole.

    Jon in CA – Sorry, but the President can do what he want. Bush lie to the American People and send us to war and lose over 4,000 lives behind a lie. So shut you fat trap!

    it just goes to show how ignorant you are. Mr President knows he not on the campaign trail but it's obvious you seem to think he's thinking that, why? Because it's loud mouths like you that don't get it. Mr President is out and about because he wants the american people to know that he has not forgot about us. Even though the repubs are trying to block him all the way, he's out there letting the american people know with this bill we can turn our nation around for the better. Stop being so narrow minded, you repubs are pathetic.

    He should practice what he preaches, cut back. He flies Air Force One all over the country while the tax payers are footing the bill.
    Tell Nancy Pelosi she can't have her big Jet anymore, it is costing us way too much money for her weekly trips to California.

    I wonder how Obama is being president while he is still "campaigning" for his issues. He should be in Washington D.C. running things instead of going all over the U.S. to discuss the issues. In my opinion, this shows just how much he "cares" about our financial situation when he is wasting our money going all over the U.S. doing town hall meetings. He needs to stop wasting our money and start doing the job that he was elected to do (run the country, not campaign).

    Jon in CA:
    Why because Bush did absolutely nothing for 8 years...he is not the "sit around" President...you know the do nothing one that just left the WhiteHouse...you should be thankful that he is out amongst the people...you Republicans can be so stupid. By the way if the the "train-wreck of a bill" offends you so much give me the money.
