Now, I think this whole issue is taken as a proxy for the question, "how much will be protect us?" And law and order is a big principle in the GOP. But wasn’t this weird?
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said he would support "enhanced interrogation techniques … but not torture."
Isn’t that just equivocating? "I’m against torture and for it." I understand the "do whatever it takes" answer. I understand McCain’s answer. In general, as the article notes, everyone agreed that torture was bad, but they tried to defend the "enhanced interrogation technique". That position just doesn’t make sense to me.
Now, Romney was much clearer when he talked about doubling the size of Guantanamo.
