I am a Colorado resident and have been since birth. I am so very pleased at the way the people of my state have banded together to help our people who have lost everything and have no place to go. The way the city of Colorado Springs has gone on the offensive against this devastating fire is, as far as neighbors helping neighbors, heartwarming and makes me proud.

After an embarrassing Beltway press briefing revelation about our out-of-touch White House, the administration finally decided to divert the campaigner in chief from his nationwide fundraising frenzy for a quick look-see at our devastated city on Friday. It's "leadership from behind" you can count on.

On Wednesday, press secretary Jay Carney acknowledged that Obama hadn't talked to Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper...
