Crickets chirp: No comment from White House about FRC shooting


The White House commented on the Trayvon Martin shooting, the Sikh shooting in Wisconsin…

President Obama called @PMOIndia Dr. Singh to discuss the shooting at a Sikh temple in WI: http://t.co/OAL7BFdN Photo: pic.twitter.com/suM8g5PZ

And the Aurora, Col., shooting:

Obama: "We woke up to news of a tragedy that reminds us of all the ways we’re united as one American family"

So far, however, it has been silent about today’s shooting at the Family Research Council, which is being investigated as a possible incident of domestic terrorism.

Wonder how long it will take for Obama to comment on shooting at #FRC. Praying for the victim & his family.

One hour since #FRC shooting and no call yet from #Obama.
