I watched a lot of this interview on Fox News this morning, and I did catch the part where he said he only included what was important to him in the RNC convention speech, which by implication would mean Afghanistan wasn't important.
Result of being tired, or an admission that Romney is actually not focused much on the wars at all? Some members of the right are slamming him for the omission.
Call it what it is. Extreme nit-picking, and out-of-context.
When giving a speech, you speak about what is important to include in that speech. Any more military talk would have detracted from the message he was giving.
Perhaps a thank you for fighting? If you believe in the wars, why would you not say SOMETHING about it?
I can answer that one, sooner.
To Romney, troops = military as corporations = people.
There is no need to "thank" a corporation for making huge profits, is there?
I rest my case.
He had addressed a VFW post the day before and given a long speech apparently, maybe he thought that would be enough. But of course the liberals will never be satisfied with anything he does or says, so what's the point really... just as I'm never satisfied with Obama's 3 question press conferences.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
What could Romney possibly say, since his extremely detailed plan (facetious) on his website is exactly the same as Obama's? Of course he doesn't want to talk about it.
As a larger issue,Romney and Ryan's* speeches are now going to be re-analyzed in light of Obama's and Biden's.
In going second, the Dems had the opportunity to one-up (more like 1 million up) the GOP convention.
There was a point by point by point by point rebuttal to any and every possible issue that was addressed and was left on the table at the RNC.
A giant checklist. Yep, we got that covered.
The only thing the Dems did not trot out in direct refutation of the RNC lineup, it seems to me, is Beau the Dog.
*I would sincerely hope there will be no post facto comparison of the star speakers, Eastwood and Clinton. That would just be... wrong.
His speech was about looking warm and fuzzy. Wars are not warm and fuzzy, so he left them out of that speech. It's only logical really..

I thought Mrs. Romney was very artificial and stiff. The things she said about all the roles we women play were true, but more for our Mother's generation. She was discussing things like helping the kids write the book...

The two recent Presidential and one vice-presidential debates have made it abundantly clear that Obama and Biden can not defend their indefensible 4 year record of bad economic and domestic/foreign policies....

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on...

Turns out that Romney showed the press a partial tax statement for 2010. It was discovered thereafter that a significan section of his tax form is missing. That part, by law, tells what the overseas investments do. For...
