The Sept. 12 Free Lance-Star article "Candidates keep swinging, gently" stated that the president and Mitt Romney had agreed to a "fleeting truce on partisan digs" as the nation remembered 9/11.
Meanwhile, my TV in the same room was reporting on the terrible attack on our embassy in Libya and the deaths of our ambassador and three other Americans.
The next voice I heard was that of Romney stating how sorry he was for the loss of life in Libya, and closing his remarks with an attack on President Obama and his handling of the situation, which was in fact unfolding that minute.
I was blown away by the lack of "couth" shown by Romney. Surely, any criticism of the president could have been addressed in an upcoming debate and not at the exact moment that the administration was dealing with a terrible loss and a delicate world situation.
I did learn something, though, from Romney's comments: All the money in the world does not give someone good judgment or class.
