He is speaking at a National Guard Association event.  Both campaigns were to suspend campaigns today and pull negative ads.

Romney didn't keep his word at the event

MSNBC was showing his speech and said from the beginning both campaigns were suspending today.

Romney started with giving praise to the men and women of the military, but quickly went into 9/11, talking about supporting troops, funding troops, benefits, and equipment.  Not mentioning Obama's name but mentioning Seal Team 6. Defense cuts, etc.

After a few minutes, MSNBC stopped the broadcast of the interview and is now talking about what happened.  Reporters seem to be upset.  As if they realized they were being used.

Update 1:
I tried to find the speech online but ended by the time I got to C-Span

A transcript is now available:

Not sure if word for word, but seems to what I heard.

Update 2:
Thanks to hulibow Politico reports even Fox cut Romney off:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
