President Barack Obama will be in Colorado, a state he won in 2008, to pitch his American Jobs Act to a crowd at a Denver high school. The Denver Post, meanwhile, will be greeting Obama with a front-page story on Colorado's unemployed:

Here's an excerpt from today's cover story:

Often overshadowed by what seems like constant rhetoric from politicians, critics and economists about job creation and the economic instability of the country are the stories of common individuals who are unable to find work.

Here in Colorado, the unemployment rate is 8.5 percent.

Between July and August, the state failed to create any jobs. Instead, it lost 1,800.

The Post endorsed Obama in 2008 as the "right man to lead America back to prosperity."
