I’m not a Romney fan, but do y’all suppose that she called up Mitt and asked him what he thought before she turned this guy loose?
And how many qualified Republicans are there left in Massachusetts to nominate to the bench anyway? You can’t swing a dead cat there without hitting some flaming liberal.
It doesn't matter to the Romney haters. Any slip, trip, flip, or stumble is a scandal to them. Wait till the Polish guy shows up on this thread, and you'll see what I mean.
“This is indeed Mitt Romney’s Willie Horton”
If you want to deliberately ignorant, maybe. For the rest of us, we tend to look at facts.
Romney’s role in this tragedy is appointing the judge. That’s it.
On the other hand, his predecessor Michael Dukakis voluntarily continued the furlough program through which convicted killer Horton was allowed to walk away from prison in June 1986 for a 48 hour period. Horton, of course, disappeared without a trace. Then in April 1987, in a home invasion burglary in Maryland, Horton pistol whipped and tortured the home’s owner with a knife. When the owner’s girlfriend showed up, Horton raped her twice.
Was that Dukakis’ fault? Not necessarily. The problem is that Dukakis continued to defend the furlough program despite its record of utter failure (76 furloughed prisoners never came back). On top of that, Dukakis commuted the sentences of 28 first-degree murderers. Only when he began his serious running for President in 1988 did he end the furlough program under pressure.
