President Obama’s Statement on the Dark Knight Rises Shooting

President Obama has released the following statement about the tragedy in Colorado. He has canceled campaign plans today and will be making a live statement later this morning.

Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my Administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time. We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family. All of us must have the people of Aurora in our thoughts and prayers as they confront the loss of family, friends, and neighbors, and we must stand together with them in the challenging hours and days to come.

  • Sorry, but there has been no official statement from Obama. I know this for a fact, as I’ve been watching this tragic story on Fox News.

  • Sorry. Dark humor. Other news channels reported the President’s statement right away. Fox News never even mentioned the first statement, but did show his brief address in Fort Myers later on.

    • All good. I deal with “it’s not reality because FOX doesn’t say so” every day, so never know when someone’s serious unless I can see or hear them say it.
