It comes on the heels of a large rally featuring his Republican rival Mitt Romney on Tuesday night in Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Romney's event was impressively staged and looked unlike anything his campaign had done before in Colorado.
Obama drew a larger crowd than Romney, though the visual appearance of the event was reminiscent of many other rallies the President has held before.
The President's tone was energetic. Early in his speech, he mocked Romney's recent campaign messaging.
"[Romney] is counting on you forgetting what he stands for," the President said. "He's hoping that you too will come down with a case of what we like to call 'Romnesia.' He's hoping that you won't remember that his economic plan is more likely to create jobs in China than in the United States."
The President hammered on Romney's economic plan, saying that it lacks key details.
President Obama also touted his own accomplishments in office. He mentioned ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gay service members, ending the war in Iraq, and turning monthly job losses into job gains.
Due to the tight schedule, it was a short address by the President, running only about 15 minutes.
The President closed by stressing the importance of the election.
"You can choose the top-down policies that got us into this mess-- or we can choose the policies that are going to keep on getting us out of this mess," the President said. "You can choose a foreign policy that's wrong and reckless--or you can choose the steady, strong leadership that we need in the world. You can choose to turn back the clock 50 years for women and immigrants and gays-- or in this election you can stand up for that basic principle that we are all created equal."
The Obama campaign had buses standing by after the event to shuttle attendees to early voting locations, though a large percentage of the crowd raised their hands when Denver Mayor Michael Hancock asked to see how many had voted already.
The Romney campaign issued a response to the President's visit:
"Mitt Romney is offering a real agenda that will help grow the middle class and restore America's strength. In two weeks, Coloradans will choose Governor Romney's positive agenda over President Obama's increasingly desperate attack," Romney campaign spokesperson Amanda Henneberg said.
Both Romney and Obama are preaching to the choir at their recent events in Colorado. There's a good reason for this: the choir sings.
The campaigns are both calling on their supporters to reach out to friends and family members to try to win crucial votes in our swing states.
They're banking on the idea that conversations between people who know each other will convince people who aren't won over by the deluge of political advertising in the state.
