Question: What is the most dangerous idea you’ve heard in this campaign?
Mitt Romney: Let’s see. Well there are a lot of ideas that I disagree with. Perhaps the most frightening was Hillary Clinton saying she had a million good ideas for America that we just can’t afford. You know we can’t afford Hillary Clinton’s million good ideas, although Charlie Rangel is trying to raise taxes enough to give her the money she wants. Probably the most dangerous idea we heard, however, came from Barack Obama – his insistence that we just pull out of Iraq, regardless of the consequences, without thinking about what would happen if Iraq became a safe haven for Al Qaeda. A dangerous thought. And then compounding that by saying that he would, in his first year, dignify Castro, Ahmadinejad, Hassad, Kim Jong-il, some of the great tyrants of our world with his personal presence as President of the United States. That is something which is also perhaps not as dangerous as it is alarming and disappointing.
