WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is heading to Colorado to comfort distraught families of victims gunned down in Friday's movie theater shooting rampage.

As authorities continue their probe of the attack, Obama will meet Sunday in Aurora with loved ones of the 12 moviegoers who perished, and get an update from local officials.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama urged Americans to embrace the grieving families "and let them know we will be there for them as a nation."

After the Colorado stop, Obama flies to San Francisco, where on Monday he'll start a three-day campaign trip. The president will address a Veterans of Foreign Wars gathering in Reno, Nev. He's also holding fundraisers in California, Oregon, Washington state and Louisiana.

    He always has to be the center of attention. It always has to be about him. He has absolutely no class at all. Get those press releases sent out. After all, it's an election year. George w. Bush took a page out of his father's book and kept private moments private. They were both heads and shoulders above this guy.

    policical season. If it was not an election year, this news would have broke after he meet with them. Bush did a lot of things wrong, but he knew how to keep his private moments with those in greif private.
