At 10:30 a.m. President Obama is scheduled to arrive at Biggs Army Airfield for his first visit to El Paso area. We'll have complete coverage right here on NewsChannel 9.


We have brand new video of Air Force One taking off from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on its way to El Paso. This video just came into our newsroom moments ago.


President Obama plans to meet with soldiers at Fort Bliss later this morning once he arrives.


He will leave at 12:15 p.m. to head back to Washington D.C. where he will deliver a primetime speech on Iraq this evening.

This radio host is your average older white male republican that longs for the 50s

Welcome OBAMA!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

I hope coverage of this event is positive from all of our El Paso residents. There is nothing more disrespectful than bashing OUR President, whether Democrat or Republican. Listening to Talk Radio Show 1150 "Greg being Greg" is totally disgusting. This man should be banned for such horrible disrespectful comments he makes on the radio. He not only bashes the President, but he speaks of "El Paso Democrats" as being idiots, uneducated and yes, he's used the word stupid to describe us.

First of all, I don't consider it breaking news that the presidential plane has left Andrews, after all, it was known well in advance that this would happen.
Second, what happend with the right to free speech?? Is it only a right if you agree with what is being said??
