In the days after the Boston Marathon bombing, we've seen Americans put aside differences in order to unite for the common good of the betterment of our society. Mitt Romney is no different.
The former GOP presidential candidate put aside party differences with his former political foe, President Obama, when he joined Obama at an interfaith service remembering victims of the Boston Marathon bombing on Thursday.
After the service, the former Massachusetts Governor admitted that he was impressed with the speeches delivered at the memorial and that Obama's address was "superb."
"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," Romney said, in an interview on CNN's "The Situation Room" hours after the memorial service at which those leaders spoke. "I thought the president gave a superb address to the people of this city and the state and the nation. It was inspiring day."
Romney has deep ties to Boston as he ran his presidential campaign in the city and now serves as a chairman of a committee for Solamere Capital, a Boston-based investment firm founded by his son Tagg.
"We begin, the first days, trying to understand how this could possibly happen," Romney said during the interview. "We mourn, we grieve for those who are so badly injured and those who have lost their lives, but we also say, 'Who has done this?' And now it appears we're zeroing in on serious suspects. Then of course we ask, why? Why would people be so demented, so stunted in their intellectual capacity, that they would do something so horrible? When I say intellectual capacity, I should say moral capacity. It's hard to fathom."
