Romney omits 'war' from acceptance speech

(CNN) - In a new campaign video and in emails sent to reporters throughout the day, the Obama campaign spent much of Friday highlighting what they call an important omission from Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech on Thursday night.

“In an almost 45-minute speech, Mitt Romney didn't find a moment to mention Afghanistan,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a statement sent to reporters just after midnight. “With no new plans and evasion about his real plans, Mitt Romney leaves this convention no stronger than he came.”

    THE MOST TELLING STORY IS CLINT EASTWOOD'S QUESTION OF WHY WE ARE EVEN IN AFGHANISTAN, WHICH IS THE QUESTION IS EVERY AMERICAN'S MIND. IMHO, THE SOONER WE PULL OUT THE BETTER.

    I DO NOT LIKE WHAT I HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM MITT ROMNEY.REGARDING ANY FOREIGN POLICY POSITION. THE LESS WE HEAR ABOUT HIS PLANS FOR AFGHANISTAN AND THE MIDDLE EAST, THE BETTER IT IS FOR HIM TO WIN THE ELECTION. THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE, SO THIS 'OMISSION' IS PROBABLY THE MOST SENSIBLE THING HE COULD HAVE DONE AND HE IS JUST GOING TO HAVE TO SWALLOW IT UNTIL THE DEBATES COME OCTOBER.

      IN ADDITION TO OBAMA'S EMPTY RHETORIC AND PHOTO OPS TO EXPLOIT OUR TROOPS ...
      Obama should tell the truth about his failed policies, which have resulted in:

      1. Releasing and returning enemy combatants to the battlefield, for another shot at killing our soldiers.
      2. Leaking military secrets to his Hollywood pals to promote the Obama reelection campaign,
      which puts our soldier in danger.
      3. Cutting back our military budget, thus giving an advantage to our enemies.
      4. Refusing to call terrorists, like the Fort Hood murderer, terrorists, thus providing them with aid and cover.
      5. Telegraphing troop pull out dates to our enemies, thus eliminating our leverage.
      6. Assisting our enemies with our tax money, aid and assistance, while throwing our allies under the bus.
      7. Opposing early voting for our soldiers, who are risking their lives, so the rest of us can vote.
      These are just some of the reasons our military dislikes this traitor.
      8. Providing terrorists and enemy combatants with due process, in American courts.

      OBAMA IS A HYPOCRITE, WHO TALKS THE TALK, WHILE CONSISTENTLY
      THROWING OUR MILITARY UNDER THE BUS !!!
      SAVE America ... Dump Obama ... and elect Romney & Ryan !!!

You Republicans gloated when Saddam was caught REMEMBER Bush got the credit!!! Hail to the Chief You republicans said. Well if a Democratic President would of taken our country to war of false information and rhetoric you republicans would of been screaming for impeachment!!! If President Obama would have off-shore accounts and would of been skirting our tax laws you republicans would of been screaming He is un-american and a thief!!! You Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites!! Hey what happened to being Conservative? Romney IS A MORMON!!! Jesus Christ please give me a break! Trickle down economics don't work. Why are you Republicans against the Rich Paying the same tax percentage as us in the middle class? Give me a break.

        @ DEcember 2012 ... it's pretty obvious that you, Obama, and the rest of the Obama stooges are the LIARS. VIDEO TAPE of Obama over the past 4 years reveals lie after lie that he has told the American people, because, like in 2008, Obama will still say, or do anything to get elected, or hold onto power. And, fabricating a whitewashed history for this liar cannot hide the real truth. The truth will set the American people free. Obama will be toast on November 7th, 2012 ... Good Riddance !!!

POLITICIANS WILL MAKE PROMISES THEY CAN NEVER KEEP, AS OBAMA HAS BUT TO ACTUALLY DISTORT AND OUTRIGHT SAY THINGS THAT ARE NOT FACTS AS PART OF THE OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN AS MITT ROMNEY HAS BEEN CAUGHT DOING, WELL I WILL STICK WITH THE GUY WHO CAN TELL THE TRUTH MORE OFTEN.

        BESIDES, WHO HAS THE TIME TO GET A NEW GUY IN AND GO THROUGH THE SAME POLITICAL BICKERING ALL OVER AGAIN? WE NEED STABILITY NOW AND THAT IS WHY OBAMA NEEDS TO STAY PRESIDENT.

      Humm,
      The Democrat Talking points are Romney Omits War from Acceptance Speech but DEcember don't like what he is hearing from Romney about same. So Which is it? I think we have here a failure to communicate. And you damn well better believe it it is better to talk about an ommision in Romney's Acceptance Speech than it is about Jobs. Some will still vote for an empty suit that is totally barnkrupt. It will be intresting to hear what the democrats will talk about at their Convention. uh, you will be bored out of your mind if you have any intellengence at all, something the Liberal's are hoping you don't have. So what else is new??

And, Mr. Romney didn"t spend TWENTY YEARS in Wrhight's 'God Damn America' anti-American, racist church. Mr. Romney is a man of character. He gave his entire inheritance to charity ... and, then built a successful business which provided jobs for thousands of Americans ... while Obama squandered 5 TRILLION dollars of OUR hard earned dollars, and maintained over 8% unemployment for over 40 weeks.

    It is obvious why Romney will not touch War because he personally has avoided it; Viet Nam, as well as his boys currently. That is for others to deal with.
    Now, he is all about getting belligerent with Iran and North Korea going to the Mideast and Saber Rattling with the Israelis.

    He is used to proposing and delegating efforts to Others and and keeps his own hands clean in great Corporate CEO style!

    He has spent his life living in his Bubble of affluence and privilege and assigns the details to the lower levels.
    King of the out of touch.

    Our troops must be remembered everyday.
    Not only did Mitt NOT MENTION those brave Americans serving in that Hell Hole of a country or, the ones that had served there NEITHER DID CONDI RICE who was part of the last Administration WHO SENT THEM THERE in the first place. Cold-hearted. STONE COLD. Proving their hearts are frozen to the pain America suffers when their children are just pawns in the games they play. John McCain you should RETIRE IN SHAME for insinutating we need more war. Your party has forgotten the pain of those that are lost to their families and the pain of knowing our children serving are in harms way everyday. The wars you started are not easily ended and have not only damaged families but, the economy of this country. Mitt is a worthless tax-cheat and draft dodger. Leaving others to pay for the wars with our children and our contributions paid in taxes to pay for them that he is above doing himself.

        @Franksterstein
        The WEEKLY STANDARD, a conservative leaning publication, has it's Premier Journalist, Bill Kristol asking why someone running to become Commander-in-Chief would fail to mention member's of Americas's military.
        "What about the civic propriety of a presidental nominee FAILING TO EVEN MENTION, in his acceptance speech, a war we're fighting and our young men and women fighting it?"

        In the lastest CNN/ORC International Survey released, confirmed other polls saying voters CONSISTENTLY say Obama, if re-elected, would handle America's relationships with other countries BETTER than Romney would. Saying that their poll has Obama having a 51% to 44% advantage over Romney on foreign policy.
        Now I know you and Howard think The Main Stream Media is in the tank for Obama, but, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Bill Kristol, David Brooks, Ross Douthat ARE ALL MAIN STREAM MEDIA TOO. So, it's a lame-shame argument.

    We need a President who is strong in National Security to keep Nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorist. We do not need to start another war so Romney does not get a free pass and saying he is only a business man does not keep us safe. So many of our men and women have given their lives for us and should be recognized and honored each and every day.

    No, Romney did not have to mention every issue, but the ones he chose to overlook are some of the most critical for the President. As Commander-in-Chief, he has to convey that he understands the cost of war and will not send our troops in harms way without the strongest consideration of alternatives. Not mentioning the war was HUGE, not minor, and NOT Saluting our TROOPS was MAJOR not minor. He has no affinity for them and their sacrifices for our country – that is why he did not mention them, but he STOOD there and parodied as if he was ready to be the FIERCE leader of this Republic, and stand up to Putin who is NOT our biggest enemy.

    NO HE DOES NOT GET A PASS ON THIS OVERSIGHT When you get the 3:00 a.m. phone call you can't say that I take calls starting at 8 a.m. until 5.

      New York Times – FiveThirtyEight – Nate Silver's Political Calculus - Sept. 1, 2012
      The Republican Nat'l Convention received MEDIOCRE RATINGS – and the polling data so far suggests that it may produce A MODEST BOUNCE in the polls for Romney.
      Information collected so far points toward its being A LITTLE UNDERWHELMING.
      The Five Thirty Eight "now cast", which does not adjust for the bounces associated with the party conventions, estimates that Mr. Obama would have a 72.3% CHANCE OF WINNING if the election were held today (Sept.1).
      Mr. Romney's standing in the Rasmussen poll was two points better than its 60 day average, but it was one point worse than average in the Gallup poll.
      The forecast interprets the data as being slightly negative for Mr. Romney. On Saturday (Sept.1) Mr. Obama's CHANCES OF WINNING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE ROSE TO 73.1% in the forecast. It's highest figure since Aug. 16th when it was 73.6%.
      As it stands in the Five Thirty Eight Forecast, MR. ROMNEY'S CHANCE OF WINNING IS ONLY 26.9%.

      See, Howard, the lies you and Mitt are telling aren't working.

      Conservative writer Ross Douthat's column about Romney's speech says," Romney wants to win by being EXCRUCIATINGLY NON-SPECIFIC. And his speech at the convention was the best example of trying to win on being "EXCRUCIATINGLY NON-SPECIFIC". Swing voters and Blue Collar voters DON'T JUST HAVE REASONS TO DISTRUST THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE PERSONALLY – THEY HAVE REASONS TO DISTRUST HIS PARTY ON POLICY AS WELL."
      Your guy is stalling – on purpose. And, the American people in their frustration responded to a poll done by Gallup conducted Aug. 31 and Sept. 1st by rating his speech lower than any of the eight convention speeches they've tested since Bob Dole's acceptance speech at the 1996 GOP Convention.

    Mitt Romney didnt meantion the war in Afghanistan because the American public has long since forgotten about it. In both the Iraq and Afghan wars, only a tiny, tiny percentage (less than half of one percent) have shouldered the burden of these wars. Since only so few even know anyone personally who served in either war, why would anyone remember...or care?

    howard read some history mormons murdered lots of people and blamed it on the native americans. What has that got to do with the fact that mitt is a lier who keeps his money off shore ran a company that lost people jobs while he profitted and will not show us his tax returns. He belongs to a funky religion that is mad up of secrecy. If he can't be open and honest with the american people when will he? He didn't serve because he went on a mission instead. Obama missed the war because he was to young. Howard you are a biggot and delusional to boot. Distorting facts seems to be a theme with the repos . Maybe you need to go back to school .? Forward Forward Forward. Leave howard and the rest of the old farts in the dust.
