AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama has met with some of the victims wounded during last months' massacre at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and the medical staff that treated them.

Obama arrived at the Medical Center of Aurora at about 3:30 pm Saturday. She thanked doctors, nurses and staff who attended some of the 58 people wounded in last month's attack during a showing of the latest Batman movie. She also met with some of the shooting victims and their families, including one patient who remains in the hospital's intensive care unit. Twelve people died in the attack.

Obama spent more than an hour at the hospital before leaving for Denver, where she is to appear at a fundraiser for her husband's re-election campaign.

James Holmes is accused in the shootings.

    Not trying to make any correlations, but are you watching the diabolical closing olympic ceremonies? Can't even describe, but at one point a car pulled up, it exploded, and then Batman and Robin exited and started dancing - spitting in your face, Aurora. If you know law enforcement on the Eastern Slope ask them to stand up for the truth. James Holmes isn't the whole story.

    Several wittnesses reported multiple shooters. The suspects brain is completely fried, cameras are no longer allowed in the courtroom. First his hair was green, then orange? There are cameras behind the theatre and emergency exit doors only open outward, they can't be kicked in. Several wittnesses saw a second person on the opposite side open the rear door and make motions. If he boobytrapped his apartment and it was so sophisticated, why did he warn the police after killing all those people? There are several witnesses on You tube that are clearly actors - search "Chris Ramos fake witness" and decide for yourself. Remember our government gave THOUSANDS of weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartels. This is a FALSE FLAG. Listen to the emergency responder recordings. Some Law Enforcement in Arapahoe county KNOW THE TRUTH. Come forward it is your moral obligation as an American. This stinks, don't believe the media. Do your own research. Out.
