Obama returns to Colorado with new stimulus pitch

DENVER (AP) - President Barack Obama got a warm but not boisterous reaction when he promoted his jobs bill at a Denver high school.

Speaking outside Lincoln High School in southwest Denver, Obama gave a version of his pitch for the $447 billion jobs bill he has been pushing in speeches across the country. The president argued that the money could help save teachers' jobs in Colorado and create jobs in the construction field.

Colorado Republicans have called the plan a new version of the stimulus plan Obama signed into law in Denver more than two years ago.

Organizers say about 6,000 attended Obama's speech Tuesday.
