Obama's Road Less Traveled includes Utah. Here's the front page article in today's Salt Lake Tribune discussing President Obama not visiting Utah during his tenure thus far:
Wow. Given his and other Utah politicos well trumpeted despisal of the the President why would he? True there are many of us who would welcome a visit but given his struggle to be re-elected, I don't blame him a bit for not spending time in the state of Zion. Maybe he will in his second term.Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, may be a campaign surrogate for Romney but said he would welcome a visit from Obama, noting that the president referenced Intermountain Healthcare in his first joint address to Congress and may benefit from visiting its hospitals."President Obama is perpetually in campaign mode, so if he doesn’t see any prospect of winning he’s not going to stop by," Chaffetz said. "I remember him famously saying we are not red states or blue states — we are the United States of America. But we are a flyover state for this president. It’s too bad."If the president were to visit the state, Chaffetz said: "I would show up at the airport, but I’m not sure Jim Matheson would."
