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.
Here’s Laura Ingraham’s tweet:
Obama will no doubt fly to Aurora and make a “healing speech” as he did in Tuscon after the Giffords shooting.

Michelle Malkin follower’s tweet:
Please stay away – we don’t want you here pretending to care: “Obama to travel to Aurora, Colorado” bit.ly/LBOFfT
