The organizers took things a little too far

While Obama did well with his speech, the organizers of this event exploited this a bit, treating it more like a political rally than a memorial service, with promotional handouts complete with slogans, and T-shirts. The people in attendance even booed Arizona's governor, a Republican.

Obama did well. The University of Arizona? Not so much.
