GOP Leading Candidate for 2012 Mitt Romney Calls Mubarak a "Monarch-Type Figure"

From The Hill GOP12 (2/1/2011):

On CNN tonight, Mitt Romney called Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak a "monarch-type figure", but not a dictator.

"He is the leader of his country. He is a monarch-type figure.

I probably would avoid the term 'dictator', but what I would say is that the country has not had the kind of representation from its people. They've not had the kind of economic freedom, of political freedom which they aspire to."
Joe Biden recently took heat for claiming that Mubarak is not a dictator.

The Hill's link has the video clip.

He is definitely, absolutely, not getting my vote.
