First Lady Michelle Obama's Fredericksburg Visit Canceled Due to Colorado Shootings

Twelve people were killed and 50 injured in the Colorado movie theater shootings.

In light of the tragedy in Colorado, first lady and Charlottesville have been canceled. 

"President Obama will address the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado in remarks in Ft. Myers, Florida this morning," a campaign press release states.

At least 12 are dead from the Aurora shootings, according to the Huffington Post.

The gunman was wearing a gas mask when he entered into the suburban Denver movie theater at midnight during the opening screening of the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, and opened fire, killing 12 people and injuring at least 50 others.

Good to see that both Romney and Obama have suspended campaign advertising in Colorado today and that the First Lady is going to skip her campaign appearance. It's a small gesture, but there are more important things on days like today.

How ingenious, using the Huffington Post as the news source for this report. What's next? Using the Brady Campaign as a brain surgery consultant?

There's nothing partisan in here - the Huffington Post is an appropriate cite as anything. Maybe we should keep our eyes on the ball today. A dozen people died in a senseless act of violence. The citation of the article should be the least of our concerns.

AOL owns Patch and Huffington Post. We keep it in the family first. :)

I believe that the Patch network is the fruit of the George Soros campaign to flood the local news markets with hundreds of new media outlets.

Arnold, maybe you mean this particular posting on the huffington post. The hp is extremely progressive/liberal. I encourage you to seek the truth.

I have to ask why everyone thinks the media is liberal when it doesn't go their way? I mean did you all think the media was liberal and Biased when they went after Bill and Hillary Clinton relentlessly? Did you think the media was liberal and biased when they never reported Newt Gingrich was hanging Clinton out to dry for having oral sex with Monica while he was in fact doing the exact same thing with his mistress Calista? See, the media really isn't biased. They report what is going on and if someone doesn't like what was said they call them liberal. Its simply not true. That would be like Calling Christians in this area loving and caring when they don't want the poor and down on their luck unemployed to get health care. Don't abort but they don't care if the little guy dies from no health care, no warm home in winter and no food in his belly. Arnold, btw I agree I am happy that both candidates cancelled out of respect for the people in Colorado. They made me proud of them. Sorry for the rant up there lol...

Do you have any thoughts on what they will seek for Holmes? I wonder just how mentally unstable this young man really is. Its almost like he was brilliant book wise but then sunk so low and without feelings. Like its asbergers and or a little autism thrown in . Anyway, food for thought...
