It is the smart, right thing for the campaigns to pull back the negativity and the events in light of Colorado. It isn’t really a close call.
Obama on the shooting:
“We may never understand what leads anyone to terrorize their fellow human beings, such violence, such evil senselessness is beyond reason.”
“There are going to be other days for politics. This, I think, is a day for prayer and reflection.”
Romney on the tragedy:
“Our hearts break with the sadness of this unspeakable tragedy.”
“We can mourn with those that mourn in Colorado.”
“We do know is how evil is overcome and we’re seeing that power today in the goodness and the passion of a wounded community.”
