Posted on 07/20/2012 2:10:27 PM PDT by GOPinCa
BOW, N.H.Hours after a shooter killed a dozen people in a Colorado cinema, Mitt Romney scrubbed a scheduled campaign rally Friday and instead offered his somber condolences and prayers to the victims and their families.
Our hearts break with the sadness of this unspeakable tragedy. Ann and I join the president and first lady and all Americans in offering our deepest condolences to those whose lives were shattered in a few moments, a few moments of evil in Colorado, Romney told a few hundred people gathered at a lumber yard here.
I stand before you today not as a man running for office but as a father and grandfather, a husband, an American. This is a time for each of us to look into our hearts and remember how much we love one another and how much we love and how much we care for our great country. Theres so much love and goodness in the heart of America.

But at least you didn't try and make it about you and insultingly emote about your daughters being there.
How many Soldiers have we lost this week???? crickets.
Someone should mention the theater’s limo-liberal corporation disarmed all the law abiding victims who were terrorized by the guy who disobeyed that murderous rule. This would not be gun banning Mittens.
Political correctness is deadly for the lies it tells and the action it takes upon those lies. Someone in that theater needs to sue! If they were going to disarm the customers, they should have provided armed guards to protect them. Sue! Sue! Sue!
I understand your point, but a soldier dying in a war zone is different than a 1 y/o getting murdered at point blank range at the movies.
He spoke well on this sad day.

Hey psssst! Romney.........you are running against Obama and the first thingy.....why are you JOINING with them for ANYTHING ?
Romney, you obtuse sap!!
I’ll accept tragedy in the classic sense: uninvited bad that happens to people not seeking it. IOW, tragic to those who had been injured by it.
It is, of course, better described by “atrocity” as you have pointed out.
Romney’s reaction is the highest morality when compared with despicable ABC News who politicized it immediately and blamed the Tea Party.
As for, How many Soldiers have we lost this week???? crickets.
How many in Mitt's family have been Soldiers or served in the U.S. military over the three generations they've been in the U.S.?????? crickets.
Yet another thing Romney has in common with Obama.
Dang, you nailed it! They should have responded with this:
But being limo-liberal globalists, they would rather join the p.c. self defense banners in sympathy for the only man in the movie house who was illegally armed!
I totally understand that, and have great sympathy for the famlies, I was referring to all the political remarks. Maybe they should both suspend campaigns. sarc tag not needed.
Baptism for the dead ping.
While Zero found a way, yet again, to make this about HIM.
“If Malia and Sasha had been in that theatre.....”
Blah, blah, blah....
That was a heartfelt, comforting and uplifting message. Well done, Gov. Romney.
Not everything is about politics, or at least it shouldn’t be.
If America can’t join together after an event like this then what is really the purpose?
Someone ought to remind Obama that recently Malia was in Mexico, where she could have been shot with one of the guns from Fast and Furious.
Wow. Talk about using an event like this to further your agenda.
He looked and sounded more Presidential today to me.
1. (no longer in technical use) a psychosis characterized by thoughts confined to one idea or group of ideas.
2. an inordinate or obsessive zeal for or interest in a single thing, idea, subject, or the like.
0bama is a narcissistic douchebag ... he again lives down to his reputation.
What a drama queen...
And equating himself in statis to the president ???>
and his wife to the first lady ???
Let no crisis go to waste eh, Willard...
How leftist of you...
No agenda, but I will bet dollars to doughnuts that the list of victims will be submitted soon.
BTW, how have you been tadpole? I’ve missed you.
He was addressing a crowd..cancelling the rally.
He sounded more presidential than the Obamanation.
The atrocity is that CCW was not allowed in the theater.
Yet another reason to boycott gun free zones whenever possible. They are killing fields.
AND YEARS of EVIL in DC.
At least THAT one got to live 0ne year...
Are you still killing your unborn?
Sure he did!
but as a father and grandfather, a husband, an American.
and then goes on how much we should love him! .......
This is a time for each of us to look into our hearts and remember how much we love one another and how much we love
We LOVE America is why we don't want him or his blood brother.
I’m not sure if that is directed at me personally, but I am against abortion.
Out of sight, out of mind, unfortunately. Thanks for bringing our soldiers to the forefront!
Good point, Sara!
One goes willingly to serve, one is dragged there to serve a parent’s wants.
Those who say they are against it but vote for those who are for it - show a schizo mindset. Something wrong with someone who supposedly are against something; yet, vote for it.
Any remarks on the abortions that happened today?
A crowd of potential voters from a presumptive nominee.
You mean from the two family men, Obama and Romney. NOPE!
I'm sure 'next' was heard at the abortion clinics they are in support of.
What did Romney's NEWS do that made it the highest morality?
Some unspeakable tragedies provide more of an opportunity than others, I guess.
See the above
Good one! Romney is looking like McCain redux.....it’s up to God to save us, that much is clear.
I googled How long did it take Obama to address the Ft Hood shooting right after he spoke...He flunked Fort Hood big time. I remembered it right.
Is the top sentence supposed to be a quote from me?
I agree, politicians know how to take advantage of those opportunities.
No, from me. Sorry about any confusion.
Okay. Sorry if that sounded hostile...not my intention. This presidential election is quite crappy and difficult. I change my mind quite often. I guess we’ll see in November how we all feel.
Just to cheer everyone up:
Did he say anything that this would have been a lot less tragic if law abiding citizens could carry a gun ANYWHERE?
