12. That's just it ...
... I am 100% opposed to capital punishment for a variety of reasons, but whether you support it or oppose it, cheering it is simply barbaric. And the question Romney was asked wasn't about his support for the death penalty, but about whether he himself had ever struggled with the question of possible innocence of any of those executed on his watch. (The implied, but thoroughly obvious, context for this question was the wrongful execution of Cameron Todd Willingham.) And for Perry to say he's "never struggled at all" with the question of innocence? Anyone who could say such a thing is an effing psychopath!
