Tagg Romney on Boston Marathon Bombings: 'Bostonians are resilient. They’re going to come together'

Three left dead including an 8-year-old boy and more than 150 people hospitalized after two explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday. Just minutes before the explosions occurred Former Gov. Mitt Romney’s son Tagg was with his family on the marathon route. This morning he joins “Starting Point” to discuss the attack and its effect on other Bostonians.

Romney who was on his way from a morning Red Sox game says the twin bombings that took place at the marathon created a “horrifying and sickening event and it’s so sad for the city.” On the other hand Romney says “Bostonians are resilient. They’re going to come together. They missed with the wrong people.”

The oldest son of the former Massachusetts Governor says “there’s going to be a period of grief. I’m sure there will be some anger.” But the goal says Romney is figuring “out how to keep this from happening again – not just here but all over the country.”

    Bostonians You Have Let US-Down. Your Lackadaisia to normal responsibility has been a place for immense complacency. An Apology will not Do. You need to get up and now do some work for yourself and the American People.

    Healing this cause:
    Bostonians and all Americans Need To Be Strong. In the Face Of Terror the only thing there is to fear is fear itself. Don't patronized yourself or the people of AMERICAN with what is already apparent. Failure and Lack of security is the only Terror in this outcome at this point. This apparent SITTING DUCK approach to security in a time as we presently live needs first to be addressed.

    Giving Charity to the people: (All people WW)
    Coverage (CNN-etc) to this modern crime is too high in its production scale. What exactly qualifies (The Producer's Training) coverage of an act of war, terror, carnage and out burst of diseases? Most be regimented and called into action as an act of cautious control instead of an outburst, Channel Data Processing instead of instantaneous data mining or data streaming.
    Cleaning up:
    The Viral process of an incident or crime in this case when a disaster or terror attack occurs the most important and clearly the one to last the longest is the stink of media coverage of all the wrong things. Bad things such as painful pictures telling a story to each person WW and offering each person WW to appeal to its content with fear or pleasure.
    Is primarily and foremost the most difficult but most important solution. We've learned in kindergarten school – before you cross the street – Stop-Look & Listen. because if there is another BomB? It probably most likely will not go off in the exact same location, (immediate spot), City or Town. Boston is still a Safe City – Just only now with a little less complacency.
