No negative political ads from Obama and Romney on September 11

Notice anything different today? Turn on the TV. The radio. Hit up your favorite news sites. President Obama and Mitt Romney promised no mud slinging campaign ads today. You read that right, September 11 there are no negative political ads on TV, at least not any with the "I'm Obama/Romney and I approve of this message".

Both President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney plan to take down their negative ads in honor of the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Neither planned to appear at overtly political events, although Election Day is never far from their agendas.
