Arizona Man Bitter at Giffords and Kelly

An Arizona man whose wife was killed in last year’s mass shooting in Tucson says the sight of fellow victim Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, makes him sick.

77 year old George Morris was himself wounded as he tried in vain to protect his wife from the gunman.  Morris and his wife, 76 year old Dorothy Morris, had gone to the outdoor town hall meeting in Tuscon to ask Giffords about her positions on a variety of political issues.

Six people were killed and 13 others, including Giffords, were wounded in the mass shooting.

Morris, who describes himself as ‘ultra-conservative’, is so bitter he turned down a visit from President Obama in a hospital following the shootings.

Morris told the Arizona Republic newspaper he has nothing but contempt for Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly. “Every time I see them on TV, it makes me want to vomit.”

He wants to know why Kelly wasn’t providing security for his wife in Tuscon.  He also doesn’t think Giffords should still be in office.

Morris and his wife met in high school and were married 54 years.  “I can tell you no man has ever loved a woman more than I loved my wife,” he said.

A candlelight vigil was held Sunday to mark the one-year anniversary of the deadly shootings by Jared Lee Loughner.

Congresswoman Giffords – who has struggled to re-learn to walk and talk after being shot in the head – stepped onstage to cheers from the crowd to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
