Normally someone wouldn’t be so tacky, but consider who we’re talking about.
Friday’s deadly rampage briefly silenced the acrimonious presidential contest, with both campaigns cutting short schedules and pulling advertising in Colorado out of respect for the dead and injured.
But for Obama, the pause was to be short-lived. After his Colorado visit, he was to fly Reno, Nev., for a Monday speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, followed by a series of campaign fundraisers in California, Oregon and Washington state. Romney is also expected to speak to the Veterans of Foreign Wars on Tuesday.
I guess those fundraisers are simply too important to postpone in the wake of the Aurora massacre. Well, at least he didn’t play golf yesterday, as far as we know.
