WASHINGTON (CBS Houston/AP) — A White House aide says President Barack Obama plans to attend a memorial service Wednesday at Fort Hood — the site of last week’s shooting rampage.

The memorial is also the same day Obama will reportedly attend a Democratic fundraiser in Houston for House and Senate candidates.

The Associated Press obtained an invitation to the April 9 event where tickets start at $16,200 a person and go up to $64,800 for a couple. Democratic leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are also expected to attend.

The AP reports that the money raised at the fundraiser will go to Democratic campaign committees in the House and Senate.

A Fort Hood spokesman confirms there will be a remembrance ceremony that day, and presidential adviser Dan Pfeiffer tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” that Obama will be there.

Should read, "while attending a fundraiser, Obama drops in on a funeral".
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.

even that gives him too much credit.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.
