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.

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.
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.
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.
