Romney: May the Victims and Families Feel the ‘Comfort of a Living God’

Via The Corner:

“Our prayer is that the Comforter might bring the peace to their souls that surpasses our understanding. The Apostle Paul explained, ‘Blessed be God who comforteth us in all our tribulations that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble.

“What we do know is how evil is overcome. We’re seeing that greater power today in the goodness  and compassion of a wounded community. Grieving and worried families in Aurora are surrounded with love today, and not just by those who are with them and holding them in their arms. They can also know that they are being lifted up in prayer by people in every part of our great nation. Now and in the hard days to come may every one of them feel the sympathy of our whole nation and the comfort of a living God.”

    He may not be a pastor-in-chief, but he’s a tolerable preacher. I got something out of it.

    Mr. Romney looks and is so presidential. He is going to make an excellent president.

    It was just so nice to really hear Gov Romney really speak from his heart about our loving God, the comforter, the yoke of Jesus being easy, prayer, mutual love, quoting Paul…. I don’t think I have ever heard him stand with greater dignity. If every so often he got off the excitment of the campaign stump, and maybe at the end, just spoke heart to heart with people like this, all that silliness about him not connecting with people would just go away. He could just get serious and talk in sacred heavenly tones about the divine mission of America, what it means to the children in the audience. Talk about prayer and how it saw our country through it’s darkest hours. Maybe find quotes from Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President. He saw our country through the darkest hour and talked to the people often about Heavenly Father and the power of prayer for our nation to be healed. FDR, in his fireside chats use to implore the nation to pray all the time to pray for our nation during the depression and the war. Why can’t Gov Romney make prayer as a part of his campaign. I bet just about every American has prayed sometime in their life, if not daily, then in times of desperate need. Well, our country is in desperate need. Why can’t he ask for people to pray for our country, in whatever form they pray. It would certainly set him apart from the none prayer candidate, and people would connect with him as a man. Find some of those very touching historical quotes. I know you have ways to get messages to him. I am telling you, this video showed the most human side of him I have ever seen. How could anyone not connect with him if he talks about America in those sacred tones on occasion?

    I heard Michael Savage on the radio say that this speech was the moment Romney won the election.
