Denver (AP) -- It's a different Colorado for President Barack
Obama. In early 2009, Obama chose Denver as his backdrop to sign the
sweeping $787 billion stimulus bill into law, an ambitious plan
that had the backing of both parties. When he visits a southwest Denver high school Tuesday, Obama will be pitching another economic stimulus -- this time to a skeptical state with unemployment around 8.5 percent. Republicans and even some Democrats say the President faces an uphill battle next year. Obama planned to use his visit Tuesday to promote his $447 billion jobs bill that includes tax cuts for small business and permanent tax hikes for the rich. Republicans have vowed to fight the plan.
