    On Fox, they said Romney was the first presidential nominee since 1952 that didn't talk about a war America was currently involved in. Curious.

    Why was that? Is it possible it would have brought up the debacle in Iraq or the fact Republicans let Bin Laden go and pretty much ignored al Qaeda while attempting to annex Iraqi oil?

    Or would it have made Americans realize that it was Obama that took out Bin Laden and pretty much decimated al Qaeda. When you point out one failure, you point out all of them.

    Was Mitt smart to skip Afghanistan or does it tell us how he will treat veterans if he becomes president.

    Afghanistan is Obama's problem. Let's see if he talks about Afghanistan.

    Because our problems are domestic, not foreign.

    John Kerry gave a hilarious speech about Mitt Romney.

    Romney can't debate Obama until he stops debating himself.

    I already said it:

    Is it possible it would have brought up the debacle in Iraq or the fact Republicans let Bin Laden go and pretty much ignored al Qaeda while attempting to annex Iraqi oil? Or would it have made Americans realize that it was Obama that took out Bin Laden and pretty much decimated al Qaeda.

    Republicans always try to portray themselves as "strong on defense" and "masters of foreign policy". Under Bush, Republicans got thousands of Americans killed for no good reason, let Bin Laden go, tens of thousands of Americans maimed and threw away trillions of dollars while hoping for an "oil payday" that never came. Folly and disaster rolled into one big mess they handed to Obama. And now, like the poster above, they say Obama "owns" it. Once again, attempting to dodge any responsibility.

    A little while ago in his convention speech, John Kerry said "Before he (Romney) debates the president on Afghanistan, he had better finish debating himself". Meaning he is all over the place on Afghanistan, contradicting himself.

    If what I read is correct he didn't mention the troops at all in his speech.
