Yesterday, President Barack Obama flew to Colorado to comfort the victims of Friday morning’s tragic mass murder in Aurora and their families.
At the same time President Obama was getting ready to head out to meet with victims of the Aurora theater shooting and their families, Colorado Sen. Shawn Mitchell wrote this on Facebook.
It’s bad enough that Mitchell uses very similar language to what Rep. Mike Coffman repeatedly apologized for, calling Obama “Unamerican.” Mitchell is doing so deliberately, with the obvious intent of rendering Coffman’s statements less controversial through repetition.
The problem is, Obama wasn’t here this weekend to campaign. Obama has shut down his ads in Colorado for at least several more days in the aftermath of the theater shootings, as has his opponent Mitt Romney. Obama came here yesterday on a nonpolitical mission to console and reassure our neighbors, victims of a terrible act of pointless gun violence.
Senator Mitchell, if you can’t put your hatred of the President aside long enough to let him comfort your fellow Coloradans in their darkest hour, you are beneath contempt.
