The Bear went over the mountain: Recapping Obama’s wacky Denver trip (Video)

White House staff tried riding the coat tails of the President Obama-"bear is loose" meme from a few weeks ago as they promoted his trip to Denver on Tuesday.

Little did they know the brief stay (Obama was in Denver for less than 24 hours) would produce a whole new wave of gifts to the Web. Watch PostTV's recap of the silly moments moments from the time "the Bear" spent in Colorado:

President Obama visited Denver on the first leg of a three-day trip to tout economic gains, fundraise and meet with ordinary citizens. Here are some thing to do in Denver when you're president. (Tom LeGro and Natalie Jennings/The Washington Post)
