Barack Obama at CU-Boulder: Top ten tweets split between excited and grumpy
This evening, President Barack Obama is slated to speak at CU-Boulder's Coors Events Center -- a venue that won't need airing out, since Wyclef Jean's 4/20 concert was a poorly attended disaster.
How is Twitter Nation feeling about his visit? Divided, pretty much like America as a whole. Below, find our top ten tweets on the topic. Which ones strike home for you?
Am very excited to see Obama tomorrow at CU Boulder. He'll be talking about student loans and getting Congress not to raise interest rates.

CU Boulder students who disagree with Obama tomorrow should stand up and turn their back on him. Just like he's done for Americans last 3yrs

Boulder is crazy enough without adding Obama to the situation.
