Obama ad airs in Colorado; campaign cites station mistake

(CNN) – A television ad from President Barack Obama's re-election campaign mistakenly aired in Colorado Springs Thursday morning, marking the first time since last Friday's deadly shooting a spot for one of the presidential candidates aired in the state.

Both candidates' campaigns said on the morning of the shooting they would discontinue airing political ads in the state. A spokeswoman for Obama's campaign said Sunday the ads would remain off the air through Friday. Romney's team said the ads would not be airing "until further notice."

      uh...Station...is referring to the local television station in Colorado Springs. When I go down to the building where they are located do I walk in the front door of the television channel? no, I walk into the building of the Colorado Springs television station...

      You either do not know anything about waves or you are trying to sound smart. Learn before speaking. Study before you learn. Research before you study. Have a brain before you research.

    OMG!...now its the Stations fault...never ever will it be the economic terrorists fault....yes, Obama has been shooting our Nation's Economy full of holes with his tax and spend mentality. In his 3 1/2 years as President, Obama has driven out Nation's Economy over 6 trillion dollars into his "engineered" recession. Since year 2010, over 300,000 small buisnesses,and over 400 banks have shut down due to Obama's enacted regulations, and taxes. Yes, Obama gets the gold metal as best master destructor of our Nation's Economy,and the items mentioned above,are just a harbinger of things to come....Obama Hell is on the way,and it will tear at the very fabric of family unity.
