After the Fort Hood attacker killed three service members before taking his own life, President Obama continued raising money at Chicago fundraisers.
Today, Obama delivered an address at the memorial service, and then was off to two more fundraisers. One of the fundraisers, where Nancy Pelosi is also slated to make an appearance, is at the $17 million home of a Dem donor:

Who’s up for a high dollar fundraiser lecture about income inequality?
Obama whines about money in politics, then attends a Houston fundraiser from $16,200 per person up to $64,800 per couple. #GlassHouseRules

Obama attends fundraiser in Houston after Ft. Hood memorial. Unseemly conduct for anyone much less the president.

Obama is busy slamming gridlock tonight:
At Dem fundraiser, Pres Obama vents frustration with gridlock and slams "the least productive Congress in modern history, recent memory."

And while criticizing gridlock, he’s also creating it:

So much traffic. #ThanksObama No seriously, Obama is in Houston and is messing up everything; namely, the traffic.
