Mitt Romney reads statement addressing the tragic shooting in Colorado. Update!
I am not simply being a partisan asshole here, but after listening to Romney talk about the shooting I was left with the feeling that he simply had ZERO emotional connection to what had happened.
In fact he almost seemed annoyed by the fact that he had to speak about it, and appeared to be reading the poorly written statement with feigned emotion almost like a bad actor auditioning for a part in the local high school play. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, about his delivery screams "phony" to me.
But you go ahead and watch it and then judge for yourself.
I have to say that for me personally, just based on THIS reaction alone, I would NEVER vote for Mitt Romney in a million years.The man simply comes across as lacking in humanity.
If you want a comparison, here is President Obama's statement.
While watching the President remember that this was during the time when reports were just coming in, and he was standing in front of a group that had come to hear a rousing political speech. I think the President handled himself very well, and DEFINITELY felt the emotion of this terrible tragedy.
Update: Of course as poor a job as Romney did in addressing this terrible incident, at least he can take some solace in the fact that he was not ignorant enough to have tweeted THIS just hours before the shooting.
You know if ONLY James Holmes had brought spoons, instead of guns, into that packed theater, just imagine how many lives would have been spared.
Leave it to Sarah Palin to ALWAYS be on the wrong side of EVERY horrible tragedy.
