    That is YOUR issue. It is not the issue of this (my) thread. Perhaps you should start your own thread on your issue and get the hell out of mine.

    I have been perfectly rational in my posts. I have given reasons why I have my position. You, sir, have given no rational responses to the topic of this thread. You have only attempted to use it as a springboard for your whining about how conservatives treat poor Obama.
    I responded to you as you were starting to get annoying.

    Either way, this whole thing is amusing watching the hypocrisy.

    You have posted exactly zero responses relevant to the topic. You simply jumped into my thread to advance your contention on a topic that is separate and unrelated.

    I suggest that...if you are annoyed by my thread...if you can't find within yourself a relevant comment to my topic...that you simply leave my thread.

    Obama...do Colorado Springs a favor: Stay away.

    I'm not certain why any democrat in his right mind would go anywhere NEAR Colorado Springs under any circumstance. I doubt there is a more wackdoo right city anywhere in America.

    You guys can keep regurgitating this same statement but how about you actually read the responses to the exact same comment previously. No one is bitching when he doesnt come. Colorado deals with wild fires every year as does much of the southwest. This is nothing new. This fire is just being publicized so the president is taking advantage. If we were going to bitch because he didnt come we would have bitched about the last 400 fires in the last 10 years when no president showed up. You should look into something before you just spew forth nonsense.

    So you opposed Bush's eventual visit to Katrina on the same grounds? Wasting taxpayers money for no good reason, according to you? The President only visits a disaster zone as a PR stunt, they have no real compassion or interest in the events? Man, I'm cynical, but you are OUT THERE in the deep cynicism.

    In case you didn't know, I live in CO, too, so you're talking for me as well. I like when a President takes time to visit a serious disaster area.

    You really should learn to read...and learn not to put words in another's mouth.

    Any consideration of past Presidents is nothing but deflection from this current issue and your implication that I think Obama has no real compassion or interest in our events is unwarranted. I've made no such statement.

    I've said before that I speak for myself.

    Now, it's nice that you like it that Obama is going to make an essentially useless visit...but I don't and I've stated my reasons throughout this thread.


    btw, now that the visit (all three hours of it) has occurred, I would like to mention that our Mayor stated, up front and before the visit, that the Springs would provide NO security for the visit. So I'm satisfied. Obama got his campaign soundbites and it didn't cost the City a dime.

    When something like this is happening who in their right mind is wondering where the president is or why he hasn't visited the area?

    The priority is to put out the fire, not to play host to an official that needs a ton of extra security when nothing will come of his visit.

    If you are correct, wouldn't the smart thing to do be not go and waste the money and man power that is sorely needed elsewhere?

    I mean if people are going to bitch, save the money et al.
