Washington: Failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said President Barack Obama gave a ‘superb’ speech at a memorial service honoring the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Speaking on CNN’s ‘The Situation Room’ hours after the interfaith memorial service at which the leaders spoke, Romney said that he was very impressed with the words of Mayor Menino, Governor Deval Patrick and with Obama.

According to Politico, Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and 2012 GOP presidential candidate, also attended the service, held in honor of about 180 people injured and three dead in the Monday bombings.

He appeared on CNN shortly after law enforcement authorities revealed pictures and video of two suspects in the bombings.
