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.
