Former Colorado Governor Bill Owens, a Republican, called Obama’s Friday visit to the wildfire site in Colorado Springs “ill-advised" in a Denver Post article. One Tumblr reaction:

therodentqueen:

Obama visiting Colorado Springs re: the Waldo Canyon fire.  And of course, every single comment on every single article, picture, and video are about how horrible Obama is and how his visiting is just going to make it worse.  He’s the president.  Visiting a disaster site.  Yes, it’s purely symbolic - it’s a symbol of solidarity and support.  How is that a bad thing?  Oh right, if Obama does it, it must be bad.  Sorry, I forgot.
