President Barack Obama's plane landed at Buckley Air Force Base outside Denver Tuesday when the President was in town to sign the sweeping stimulus package into law.

Air Force One touched down at about 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

A motorcade took Obama to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where he toured a solar panel installation to highlight the boost he hopes the measure will give to renewable energy.

He then signed the $787 billion stimulus bill at the museum.

Vice President Joe Biden and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, a former U.S. senator from Colorado are with the president.

Colorado Republicans held a protest rally at the state Capitol to coincide with the signing.

Obama flew to Phoenix after signing the bill.

The White House went live with a new Web site Tuesday that will allow people to track where the money is being sent. To visit that Web site, click on the link below.

    Why did President Obama come to Denver CO to sign the bill? Why not the White House? Just curious.

    On to Denver for the photo-op. Nothing but showmanship. If he had any integrity Obama would veto the Stimulus Bill until everyone at least has a chance to read it. God have mercy on America.
