Mitt Romney last evening refused to answer a question by stating that waterboarding is torture. He basically took the Mukasey plea, refusing to answer a direct question about whether he, as president, would allow America to engage in such torture.
This answer says much about Mitt Romney and his qualifications to be president. Essentially all the Republican candidates are endorsing the BushCo platform, from Iraq, to torture, to presidential power, to forming a government which is nothing more than the agent of corporate America, to a whole host of all the wrongs that have put America on the wrong track. None of them is willing to abandon George W. Bush's policies. Electing any of them means four more years of the same failures.
Romney's refusal to answer this question on waterboarding is indicative. We all know this technique is torture. There is no debate on what constitutes torture, degrading, inhumane, and improper treatment of prisoners. We don't want our fellow citizens and service members subjected to the same conditions and, as such, we should abhor and object to it being done to others in our name. Mitt Romney refused to do that last night.
He's no different from the scoundrels already in power.
