BuzzFeed ‘reporter’: Romney helping a dying boy sure is icky and morbid; The decent set him straight

Yes, he did. Zeke Miller of BuzzFeed tweeted that out Friday evening.

What morbid stories, pray tell? Ace of Spades, who recently called out the same “reporter” for breathlessly tweeting that Romney’s car passed a confederate flag, gets to the bottom of it.

Yep. Unreal. The “morbid story?” Mitt Romney spoke about when he helped a young boy, dying from leukemia.

The young boy asked “Brother Romney” to help him draw up a will before he died. This is from BuzzFeed’s own article:

“I went to David’s bedside and got a piece of legal paper, made it look very official,” Romney said, recounting a meeting shortly afterwards at a hospital. “And then David proceeded to tell me what he wanted to give his friends. Talked about his fishing rod, and who would get that. He talked about his skateboard, who’d get that. And his rifle, that went to his brother.”

Romney quoted from one of his favorite TV shows, “Friday Night Lights,” to describe the character of Oparowski.

“I’ve seen the character of a young man like David, who wasn’t emotional or crying. He had his eyes wide open. There’s a saying, clear eyes, full heart, can’t lose. David couldn’t lose. I loved that young man,” Romney said.

Aiding a dying boy is so icky and morbid. Only someone “out of touch” and evil would talk about such things. A BuzzFeed parody account sums it up.

Plus, how does this help Obama? What about Romney’s gaffes?!?!?

People who aren’t heartless weighed in.

Some Twitter users try to teach Zeke Miller about what is really morbid.

Bingo. Keep digging, lapdogs.

    That was one of the sweetest stories I’ve ever heard; according to Buzzfeed, I must be rather emo.

  • kbielefe

    It can’t be true compassion, because no federal funds were involved.

    • Brett McMicken

      they cannot stand it because the boy owned a rifle and left it to his brother.

  • Vividiorque

    Hearing that story from the parents of that young 14 year old boy at the RNC was a very emotional moment for me. I have great doubts B.O could even muster up one of his devoted minions to do something like this. He’d rather party in Vegas, knowing there were 4 slain Americans in Benghazi after a Terror Attack hours before!

    ah, a bleeding-heart sociopath…interesting freak of nature

    Obamacorp is scrambling to find a way to get 65% of that fishing pole.

    Guess Romney just proved he is not qualified to be a member of Obamacare’s IPAB.

  • louisiana_mom

    In the Progressives’ world they would have given the boy a pill, told him to die quietly, while confiscating his belonging for the “collective.” Anything that goes against this is morbid in their twisted reality.

    MSM’s were the ones telling pretty morbid stories after Obama’s debate performance last Wednesday. Heh-heh!

      That’s not gonna buff out!

    BuzzardFeed, want morbid? Try focusing on Obama’s stance on late-term abortion. Or his disregard for border agents, troops and ambassadors.

    • TugboatPhil

      Or his Illinois legislation to deny any medical aid to babies born alive as a result of a “botched” abortion. Obama believes in state mandated Infanticide for abortion survivors and yet Romney is morbid??

      • 1azuce

        obama “I don’t want them punished with a baby.”

      • irishgirl91

        No, that was compassionate b/c it protected the doctor in the botched abortion from any further emotional “trauma” of having to kill a live baby.

  • nc

    How dare Romney introduce a personal story into the campaign! BHO would NEVER do anything like that…

    The blatant hypocrisy of this crowd is bottomless.

  • TexasMom2012

    Morbid story: 16 teens at birthday party slaughtered with guns received via Fast and Furious ATF gunrunning scandal. Blood running in the streets… Morbid, criminal and disgusting.

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    it sounds silly, maybe
    but when you think of what mitt must have felt, not a happy story at all

  • Ntr

    Sounds like desperation from another Obama supporting BuzzFeed’er. Anything to try and keep their man Obama afloat no matter how idiotic it sounds.

  • Tony0920

    Morbid vs Pathetically obvious. We really need to hear another story about Obama’s grandmother, not.

  • vino veritas

    People, in general, are just tools for the left, regardless of their plight and status in the world. That’s why this media hack refers to Romney & a sick child as ‘morbid’ because it fits the dishonest narrative he is trying to sell to the public. There is no ethical code to bind them so anyway they can twist the truth to fit that narrative they are after is perfect for them. They are, of course, the party of the people and all. As long as you people don’t mind being thrown under the bus for their benefit.

  • Paul C.

    Wake up people what your seeing now is the REAL LIBERALS without the mask. It’s called getting desperate. Beware as the poll numbers favor Romney more violence will be the norm.

    I suppose kindness and decency are morbid in Zeke-world. I hope no suspiciously symbolic stars and bars were flying nearby.

    According to Chris Matthews, O’Bama would have cured that kid…….

    Liberal logic:

    Talking about comforting a boy dying of leukemia — Morbid

    Talking about the murder of millions of unborn children — Reason for celebration
