Mitt Romney and Jay Leno talk about the TSA...
LENO: To me, we're at war. People don't know it, but we've been in a war for eight years. In the last war -- in World War 2 -- you couldn't buy gasoline, you couldn't get meat, you had ration cards. To go like this [gropes a bit] at the airport, that doesn't seem like that high a price to pay.
ROMNEY: It's not a huge price to pay for our security. On the other hand, there gotta be better ways than taking an 8 year-old child, and, well, I won't even describe what we do.
.... and we gotta use, if you will, some kind of rationale for the decision as to who's going to be detained.
LENO: Now this WikiLeaks guy. Treason? Espionage?
ROMNEY: Treason. That's really committing a crime against his nation.
LENO: But he [Julian Assange] isn't an American. He's Australian.
ROMNEY: No, I'm not talking about the WikiLeaks guy -- the guy who...
LENO: [interrupting] .... Oh, [Bradley] Manning.
ROMNEY: Took secret information, and if he's the one who did it and if he is found to be the one who did it, he has committed an act of treason against his country.
... And Don't Ask, Don't Tell:
LENO: Gay soldiers -- men and women seemed to have served with distinction -- why is this so hard?
ROMNEY: You know, I think Senator McCain, who has a lot of military experience and I have none, Senator McCain looked at the setting and said, look, the current policy is working, and in a time of war and conflict, this is not the time to make a change of that nature, and I would concur with that view.
