    Romney visits police station.

    Contrast this to Obama's campaign stunt in Afganistan:
    PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — It’s not often that Mitt Romney omits from his remarks that he’s running for president, but today the presumptive GOP nominee did just that, secretly dropping by a New Hampshire police station to offer his condolences to a unit grieving over the sudden death of their police chief.
    “There was no mention of votes, he didn’t talk about any political issues,” said current Police Chief Tara Laurent in an interview with ABC News. “He kept his remarks exclusively to offering condolences to the officers here.”
    Greenland’s Police Chief Michael Maloney was killed earlier this month when he went to serve a search warrant to an individual being investigated for a drug charge. The story of his death, as well as the state-wide tributes that have been organized since on his behalf, have been widely covered in the New England press.
    According to Taurent, Romney arrived with his Secret Service agents and just one campaign aide just after 12:30 p.m. — when the national press pool who covered the candidate’s morning event in Portsmouth, N.H., were likely still sitting on the pier filing stories.
    The campaign did not advise reporters of the event, instead telling reporters that Romney was heading into Boston after his event in Portsmouth.

    The candidate, who is often criticized for failing to show his human side, did just that, albiet away from the eyes of journalists.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Winston Churchill

    It'll get very little press coverage even if they were invited.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    I'm not a huge Romney supporter, but the fact that he took time to do this , in my eyes, shows the mans character. Not like someone else that likes to take credit for everything that happens to validate his term in office.

    Call it my paranoid side, but I can't help that this was planned as a win for police vote. Obvious media coverage on something like that would have been blown off by all of us as a ploy. Something quiet like this means he will get the underground network between officers going with a lot of positive endorsement for keeping it out of the media.
    Just saying...
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    No, it's been old. It's also sad.
