Why is it so important to know what our political figures have to say in the event of a tragedy?
I know it's an awful tragedy and I understand that but why is it so important for every political figure (Obama, Mitt Romney, Harry Reid etc) to come out and release a statement about how bad they feel? I think it goes without saying that everyone with a soul feels awful for these people and anyone who believes in any deity will be praying for the victims and their families. Each statement, as released, is turned into a headline story. I guess tragedy is all that sells in the media these days.
