“I think Mitt Romney had a great opportunity to make the case against the last four years if he had focused on job creation and on getting us out of Afghanistan,” Huffington admitted. “But he has ignored Afghanistan. So basically, his position is identical to Obama’s.”
But, Huffington offered, if Romney changed his position on Afghanistan, he might actually earn her vote.
“If, for example, he [Romney] had come out in favor of pulling the troops out of Afghanistan, I would consider voting for him because I think it’s a complete and utter disaster that’s costing us precious lives and two billion dollars a week for no justification — an immoral, unnecessary war — but he hasn’t, so he has not really taken bold positions.”
