"'If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,' Romney said, saying that a Democratic president would leave Iraq too soon and this would be like a surrender to terror."If Democrats win, we will all die. The Republicans have run with this to the bank for so long, but it is so offensive and horrible. Here is hoping that McCain won't be such an ass about things.
And let's remember just how well this party has governed. After years of Bush swearing we don't torture, the White House now admits we do. Sort of. Actually, they admitted to waterboarding but want to keep it as an option if authorized by the Prez himself. Which suggests that Bushy was the guy who said "ok" to it before. But here is the kicker. They say it isn't torture. Even though waterboarding is widely considered to be torture, they say no. And why isn't it torture? Because the Administration's pet lawyers said it was legal, so therefor they know it can't be torture, because we don't break the law.
These people are horrible. But even more than that, we still hear a deafening silence from the right about this practice (except McCain). Religious conservatives are still silent. On torture. On the fact that their President Jesus committed war crimes. Silent.
