Romney blew it

31 Aug

Did you watch Mitt Romney’s speech at the convention?

Interesting and true comment from a columnist named William Kristol.

“Mitt Romney said not a word about the war in Afghanistan.

Nor did he utter a word of appreciation to the troops fighting there, or to those who have fought there.

Nor for that matter were there thanks for those who fought in Iraq, another conflict that went unmentioned.

Leave aside the question of the political wisdom of Romney’s silence, and the opportunities it opens up for President Obama next week.

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?”

He’s right.
