Missing the Mark

Posted By Blackfive • [August 31, 2012]

About Gov. Romney's speech last night, William Kristol at the Weekly Standard asks:

What about the civic propriety of a presidential nominee failing even to mention, in his acceptance speech, a war we're fighting and our young men and women who are fighting it? Has it ever happened that we've been at war and a presidential nominee has ignored, in this kind of major and formal speech, the war and our warriors?

While the economy certainly is the number one issue, I agree that the war in Afghanistan needs attention and the Governor missed an opportunity last night.

However, Gov. Romney did address defense and veteran issues at the American Legion's National Convention earlier this week.  Here is the video of that speech.

Focus on jobs, tri-care, and the VA were good points.
