Reader: Neal Boortz's apology for Obama theater-shooting remarks doesn't cut it

Amid our coverage of the Aurora theater shooting last week, we noted a tweet by talk-show host Neal Boortz attacking President Barack Obama for commenting about his shock and sadness over the event. Boortz subsequently sent out an apology tweet about the post, but many of our readers weren't impressed. Like this one, for instance.

Honestly, he ought to b ashamed of himself. His original Tweet is bad enough; his follow up apology is downright embarrassing.

If you can't think of anything kind to say today, perhaps it's a great day to just shut the hell up.
