Mitt Romney got attacked by DNC speakers for not directly mentioning the troops during his speech accepting the nomination. In an interview with Fox News, Bret Baier asked Romney whether he regrets the omission. Romney explained:
"I only regret you're repeating it day in and day out. When you give a speech you don't go through a laundry list, you talk about the things that you think are important and I described in my speech, my commitment to a strong military unlike the president's decision to cut our military."
