Citing 47% remark, Denver Post repeats Obama endorsement

(CNN) – The editorial page of Colorado's largest newspaper backed President Barack Obama Friday, writing the Democratic incumbent had made "demonstrable – though hardly remarkable – progress" since they first backed him for president in 2008.

"Obama…has shown throughout his term that he is a steady leader who keeps the interests of a broad array of Americans in mind," the editorial from the Denver Post read, providing a sharp contrast with Obama's rival Mitt Romney, who the paper excoriated for his remarks on the 47% of Americans who rely on the federal government for financial support.

Biden: Romney bogged down in '1950s time warp in terms of women'

Greeley, Colorado (CNN) – What might June Cleaver of "Leave it to Beaver" think?

Seizing on Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" comment from Tuesday's presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden mocked the Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday. And in a twist, Biden added a nostalgic knock, casting Romney as bogged down in a throwback time known more for women as homemakers and doting wives than as powerbrokers keeping pace with men.

Obama: 'Real' Mitt Romney was missing from debate

Denver (CNN) - President Barack Obama fired back at Mitt Romney in his first post-debate stop in Denver Thursday, contrasting the Romney he saw at the debate with the Romney seen on the campaign trail over the last year.

"We had our first debate last night, and when I got onto the stage I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney," Obama told the crowd of roughly 12,300. "But it couldn't have been the real Mitt Romney."
