Da Tech Guy brings you Fedora on the ground reporting from NH. The Romney event was solemn, beginning with the invocation:Lord rest the victims, strengthen the survivors, and point toward justice for the perpetrator.
Mitt sounds truly Presidential here:
In Florida, President Obama:
“Even as we learn how this happened and who’s responsible, we may never understand what leads anybody to terrorize their fellow human beings like this,” Obama said. “Such violence, such evil is senseless. It’s beyond reason. But while we will never know fully what causes somebody to take the life of another, we do know what makes life worth living.”
“I know many of you came here today for a campaign event,” Obama continued at the event in Fort Myers. “I was looking forward to having a fun conversation with you about some really important matters we face as a country, and the differences between myself and my opponent in this election. But this morning, we woke up to news of a tragedy that reminds us of all the ways that we are united as one American family.”
Thanks, Pete: even on a tough day like this one, you’re a champ.
