Syndicated conservative Talk host NEAL BOORTZ quickly backtracked on a Tweet he sent out earlier this morning, when he belittled Pres. OBAMA's remarks about the tragic shooting in AURORA, COLORADO.
BOORTZ, whose show is heard on COLORADO stations in GREELEY/FT. COLLINS, GLENWOOD SPRINGS, BASALT/ASPEN, GRAND JUNCTION and CORTEZ, sent the following out on Twitter: "OBAMA has made a statement about COLORADO shooting. Whew. Everything is OK now. OBAMA is 'shocked and saddened.'"
When a DENVER WESTWORD blog publicized his Tweet, BOORTZ sent the blog writer an e-mail that read, "MICHAEL ... you are EXACTLY right. My Tweet was flat out wrong. Certainly it is the role of the President to lead the mourning at a time like this. I've apologized on Twitter as well.
Here's the apology tweet: "Looking over my Tweets. I shouldn't have mocked POTUS for the "shocked and saddened" comment. My bad. He just affects me that way."
