    Back on topic...

    Colorado is a swing state, so courting Colorado voters is important for Obama. The altitude is not THAT bad in Denver, especially if you are in decent physical condition.

    I don't think you want your candidate coming across as tired and sickly.

    If I had to come up with an excuse for Obama's performance, the one I would go with is "he was too busy running the country to prepare for a debate, whereas Romney has been preparing for months."
    I guess that's why professional athletes have trouble acclimating, it only effects the weak and feeble. Obama should have taken the altitude into consideration though and arrived with enough time to at least somewhat acclimate. Of course if he had, the right would have accused him of being lazy and taking another vacation. Being someone who can take 18 months off from working and still make 20M a year has its advantages.

    You know I have deployed around the world to various places, to include high altitude. Yes high altitude can affect you negatively performing vigorous tasks. But I never had a problem thinking or talking.

    Concur brother. I don't get to go to Afghanistan and use this excuse when engaging a village elder in a KLE. This is a bogus grab from a tired loon (Gore).

    The aircraft cabin was pressurized. I'm pretty sure Air Force 1 normally flies higher than 5,000 feet. What the heck kind of aviator are you that you don't know this?

    Maybe he should have just opened the window.

    Cabin Altitude is a term that specifically relates the relative pressure altitude inside the pressure vessel (i.e. cabin) to the standard atmospheric pressure for a given elevation. So, when I say that the cabin altitude was about 5,000 feet, I mean the air inside the cabin was the same pressure as Denver. Air Force 1 probably flies around FL350 (i.e. 35,000 feet).

    The problem is, I knew what I was talking about, but you didn't have enough knowledge to understand.
