Rejecting politics for prayers for the slain.
Via DaTechGuy, the right note from Mitt Romney. Romney’s remarks in Bow, NH, July 20, 2012:
DaTechGuy reported that Romney, Senator Kelly Ayotte, and the priest brought in to offer a prayer for the Colorado dead then formed a line to greet each person who had come to what was originally supposed to be a campaign event. Which was appropriate.

PS: One grace note that did not get mentioned in the national news:
The campaign played no music and hushed supporters who began getting restless as the sun began to beat down and the event fell behind schedule.
“We had a chant, but we didn’t do it,” said Nashua Republican Linda Twombly, 69, who hadn’t heard about the shooting until she arrived at the Romney event. “They told us no.”
But then, character is what you show when nobody’s looking.
