"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

President Obama Speaks about Shooting in Aurora CO at the Midnight Showing of 'The Dark Knight'

Would be willing to bet that most people at the event didn't have the full details of this horrific tragedy because of how early you have to get to campaign events when the President is speaking.  They are applauding the President and his visit at the beginning of the event as they came to see the President.  Some are criticizing these people for applauding the President at various on-line sites but once the audience discovered what had happened the mood in the room shifted.  Shame on those trying to make this political.

Both campaigns have suspended their ads in Colorado and their campaigns as the Nation comes to grips with this tragedy once against caused by a long gunman

Hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims and to the family of the shooter who also is comprehending their son was responsible for this carnage.  

The President said that today should be a day of prayer and reflection and has ordered the flags flown at half staff because of this tragedy.
