Romney/Ryan Pueblo, Colorado Rally Cancelled
Romney posted on Facebook that prayers go out to the family of the people who died in the plane crash. Don’t know what its about.
I wonder if Nancy Pelosi knows what happened. She declared Obama victor of this election already - she seems to have special knowledge... /s

Ann and I were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic plane crash in Pueblo, Colorado. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family of the victim of this terrible accident. We keep them in our prayers.
What’s with this trend of canceling events due to other incidents? Political correctness run amok. This shows weakness, not strength. So much for ‘the show must go on’.
No it shows compassion. And compassion is not a weakness.
Obama would have done the fundraiser, had the coffins in front of him, and called it a “tough day”,
You heard it here first . . .
“I wonder if Nancy Pelosi knows what happened. She declared Obama victor of this election already”
I remember her declaring she’d still be the speaker back in 2010. How did that work out for you Nancy?
didn’t see much on the news site. crashed at 0830. could be the airport was closed to investigate and that would have mucked up the travel plans and timeline for today.
Pueblo is a Dem stronghold, one of three or four in CO.
Wasn’t the event actually at or near the airport? Runway closures from the crash PLUS a presidential candidate’s security crew needs and the crush of (hostile!) press and media probably dictated this decision.
Not! He is in no panic. I think this shows confidence and control. If “ the show must go on” took place, the hyena media would have attacked.
Romney/Ryan....The next President....get used to saying it!
That’s a female’s perspective. Unfortunately, the female perspective guides today’s political decisions. You can have compassion AND hold an event. The notion that a political rally AND a plane crash are somehow linked is ludicrous. They’re not. You start the rally with a prayer for the victims and be done with it! This was an ACCIDENT not a terror attack on America. Sheesh!
Due to a plane crash involving a small aircraft at the Pueblo airport that is under investigation we are no longer going to Pueblo. We do not want to interfere with the investigation or any emergency response efforts, said campaign spokesman Rick Gorka, just hours before the Romney charter was set to take off for Colorado from Massachusetts.
Fundraiser? He’d have searched the dead for loose change.
Maybe they couldn't land at the airport due to FAA investigation.
Expect the media to report Team Romney is pulling out of CO.
It looks like Romney didn't want the airport to have to devote the vehicles to the Romney plane when they're smack in the middle of an emergency.
Probably a small airport.
