Fear Surrounds Obama’s Visit With Denver Theater Shooting Victims
I live in Boulder, Colorado which is roughly 25 miles northwest of Denver. Off and on since Friday morning I’ve been watching local coverage of the massacre at the Aurora movie theater.
Yesterday we were told that President Obama would come here this evening to meet with “friends and family of the victims.” I thought we would see live video of him getting out of his car, walking into one of the hospitals, coming out of a hospital or whatever.
No. There’s been none of that.
The only “live shot” has been of Air Force One sitting on the tarmac at Buckley AFB.
I also thought he might make a statement near the theater or in the park across the street where people have been gathering. But no.
He hasn’t made any public appearances whatsoever.
Now I hear, again, via local media, that he did visit “friends and family of the victims” but he’s traveling back to the fortified Buckley Air Force Base and he’ll make a statement to the people of Aurora, Denver and the nation from there.
They. Are. Scared.
