Most Americans’ hearts are heavy this morning as they remember one of the most tragic days in US history. As a nod to our need for a day of reflection and remembrance, both campaigns have suspended television ads.
Evidently, though, the political hiatus — for Team Obama — does not apply to Twitter.
The first tweet from our President on 9/11 is all politics:
The election is in 8 weeks. Sign up to volunteer: OFA.BO/s3tXFz
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 11, 2012
The first tweet from our President’s top campaign stooge gets dirty:
Yowza!Adelson bets big on Romney, and under Mitt’s tax scheme, the casino mogul would walk off with a $2 billion pot.huff.to/QCx3pl

Compare this with the tweet from soon-to-be President Romney:
On this most somber day, America is united under God in its quest for peace and freedom at home and across the world.
— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) September 11, 2012
Keep it classy, Team Obama.
UPDATE: An email from First Lady Michelle Obama this morning is also politics as usual.
