Romney Praises Obama Visit to Aurora Shooting Victims, Saying It’s “Right Thing to Do”

Mitt Romney praised President Obama for his visit to Aurora CO to pay respects to the victims of the “Dark Knight Rises” shooting massacre by former medical student James Eagan Holmes. Romney said it was “the right thing” to do.

Um, what kind of person says he’s here as a “husband and father” to the grieving people of Aurora, in what is being described as the worst massacre in America’s history? How dare President Obama think of possibly doing something “presidential?”

Tell conservatives like Michelle Malkin and her Twitchy staff, what Mitt Romney said, since they are taking the position that he went for campaign reasons.

It’s ironic that Mitt Romney should praise President Obama for going to Aurora, but right wingers like Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin and others take offense to him doing his job. I guess they forgot about the Bush administration’s Hurricane Katrina debacle.

  1. To not go would not be the wrong thing to do from a humane viewpoint and from a political one. So where’s the beef.
    For Romney to praise Obama is the right thing to do from a humane viewpoint and a political one.
    For either of them to do nothing to minimize future killings by banning megmagazies and other measures is not humane, but politically pragmatic.

    What he said.

    I didn’t even bother listening to Obama’s comments*. I’m sure it’s the same old weepy platitudes. Then go back to the fundraising trail and take the easy route by not even mentioning the notion that we may have a problem.

    * I feel the same about the GOP. I am bipartisan in my loathing of government’s inability to touch the new Third Rail.
