Mitt Romney spent most of last year criticizing President Obama but that doesn’t mean that the former GOP candidate can’t extend a compliment every once in awhile. Romney said that Obama gave a “superb” speech at the memorial service today in Boston.
Romney attended the service today to honor the the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. The explosion killed three people and injured about 180 more.
Romney said: “I must admit I was also very impressed with the words of the mayor, Mayor Menino, with our governor, Gov. Deval Patrick, and with the president … I thought the president gave a superb address to the people of this city and the state and the nation. It was an inspiring day.”
During Obama’s speech, he reiterated that the people responsible for the bombing would be found and brought to justice. He also added that the bombing would not deter the spirit of Boston or the United States.
Obama said: That’s the message we send to those who carried this out and anyone who would do harm to our people. Yes, we will find you. And yes, you will face justice. We will find you. We will hold you accountable. But more than that, our fidelity to our way of life, for a free and open society, will only grow stronger, for God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but one of power and love and self-discipline.”
