A simple answer, no.
Mitt Romney failed to mention support for our troops who are fighting in Afghanistan in his acceptance speech. See here. Mitt Romney became the first Republican since 1952 to accept his party's nomination without mentioning war.
Romney was asked about his failure to mention our troops in his acceptance speech this morning on his favorite outlet,
There is a lot I don't like about Romney. But perhaps the main reason I dislike this man is the fact he has five strapping sons and not ONE OF THEM has served in the military. In fact, when asked about this several years ago he replied "They're serving on my campaign which is the same thing." No Governor Romney, it is NOT THE SAME THING.
I and both of my younger brothers joined the Army right after graduation from high school. No one told us to join. We knew it was our DUTY to our country to serve in the military. We never gave a thought to getting out of not serving. Of course none of us was born into privilege like Romney or his five sons.

I find it ironic that the man who wants to be commander in chief doesn't find it important to even acknowledge our men and women who are serving on the battle line in Afghanistan. This is the same man who running mate Paul Ryan has proposed an 11 billion dollar cut in VA benefits. Of course Paul Ryan has also never served in the military.
I cannot tell you how much I despise both of these men. As I said before there are many reasons for me to dislike them from their war on women to their pledge to end Medicare and Social Security but the main reason I find these two political despicable is their total disregard for our men and women in uniform and veterans.
Isn't it ironic that Mitt Romney has surrounded himself with the neocons from the Bush Administration, most of whom never served in the military themselves? Mitt and these neocons are already saber rattling, threatening war with Iran, Syria, and Russia. Of course they're all too willing to go to war as long as they don't have to go or any of their family.
Romney failure to mention our war in Afghanistan and troops in his acceptance speech disqualifies him to be president of the United States.
