More gaffes from the Romney camp: Mitt Romney told Brian Williams, in his exclusive NBC interview, that Colorado shooting gunman James Holmes obtained the weapons illegally. In other words, he’s unfamiliar with the details of the largest shooting massacre in American history, but yet he wants to attack President Obama on his national and foreign policy? Um, this also plays into Mitt Romney being fuzzy on the details of his offshore bank accounts, his departure date at Bain Capital, his blind trust, his tax returns and the list goes on and on. Earth to Mitt Romney — James Holmes purchased the firearms legally through various national gun chains and on online.
ROMNEY: Well this person shouldn’t have had any kind of weapons and bombs and other devices and it was illegal for him to have many of those things already. But he had them. And so we can sometimes hope that just changing the law will make all bad things go away. It won’t. Changing the heart of the American people may well be what’s essential, to improve the lots of the American people. Source: Think Progress
Mitt Romney’s unfamiliarity with the details of the Colorado shooting rampage that left 12 dead and 58 injured is an insult to the victims, their families, law enforcement and the state of Colorado. I expect this type of ignorance from someone like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, but not from the man who claims he knows how to fix what ails this country. Um, does he even know what the problems we face are? This is further proof of how out-of-touch Mitt Romney is with working class Americans. This was the worst mass shooting in American history and he isn’t familiar with the details. That’s either stupid or bare-faced.
I can’t wait to hear more ignorance coming from Mitt Romney during the three presidential debates set for October 3 at the University of Denver; a town-hall style debate October 16 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.; and the final debate, focusing on foreign policy October 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., according to the Wall Street Journal.
