I bet conservatives didn't complain or say "well, what's that going to do" when Bush went to New York after 9/11 or New Orleans (eventually) after Katrina.
I'm not a political person.. I just don't see (besides the moral support) what touring CO would do atm. I'm more of an action person.
To me it just seems like a waste of funds.. the state is on fire. Visiting doesn't put the fires out.
I could understand being there for Katrina and 9/11, because the turmoil was over and all there was to do was assess the damage and support the state. But CO is still on fire, and I think that there should be action instead of tours.
Nothing against the president.. but logically to me it doesn't make much sense.
