WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will travel to Colorado on Sunday to visit with families of victims of the movie theater shooting.

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer announced plans for the trip on Saturday night. Aides say the trip will also include meetings with state and local officials.

In his weekly radio address, Obama called for prayer and reflection on the shooting rampage in Aurora, Colo., which claimed 12 lives. He urged Americans to embrace the families who lost loved ones in Aurora and to "let them know we will be there for them as a nation."

    Oh I hope ever so much that he'll talk about greenhouse gas and controlling those nasty Tea Party people. We need more federal money for the homeless and to pay the TSA, police and fire people. We need to unionize all the police and fire, just like the school teachers. It's just wonderful that our Dear Leader is taking time out from his busy schedule to meet people in Colorado. I hope the nice people in the media will keep playing these stories instead of talking about depressing things like unemployment and the economy. We Democrats support our Dear Leader because we know it takes a strong man to rule America.
