He said he and his wife had gone to Giffords’ town-hall meeting outside the grocery store in Tucson on Jan. 8, 2011, to complain to his congresswoman, who he says kept voting for liberal causes.
But before he had a chance to vent his anger, a gunman began shooting people in the crowd. Morris’ wife, Dorothy, 76, was killed in the rampage, and he was hit in the legs and back. Giffords was shot in the head.
In the days following the shooting, Morris, a self-described “ultraconservative,” even refused an invitation to have President Barack Obama visit him in his hospital room, the Arizona Republic reported.
“I will not kowtow to anyone,” he told the newspaper. “People would not believe that I would refuse the president.”
Sometimes, y’know, things transcend politics. Unfortunately, George Morris, who has a right to be angry about something, appears to have missed that point.
EDIT: Some of things Morris says in the full story — just unbelievable. "I think she ought to be thrown out of Congress posthaste. I do not think she is worthy of serving." … "I’d like to debate our dear captain astronaut (and ask) why he didn’t have security. My wife would still be alive."
