Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee for president, joined President Obama in calling for national unity on Friday in the wake of a horrific massacre in Aurora, Colo., that killed at least 12 people and wounded dozens more. "This is a time for each of us to look into our hearts and remember how much we love one another and how much we love and how much we care for our great country," Romney said. Both Romney and Obama pulled negative advertisments that were scheduled to air in Colorado on Friday.
