FORMER MASSACHUSETTS GOVERNOR MITT ROMNEY TALKING TO VETERANS ABOUT THE ISSUES AND CONCERNS THEY FACE.
ROMNEY MEETING WITH VETS AT MUTT'S B-B-Q IN MAULDIN, SOUTH CAROLINA...MARKING VETERAN'S DAY.
THE G-O-P PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SAYING IF HE BECOMES PRESIDENT HE WOULD CUT WASTE WITHIN THE MILITARY.
ROMNEY says: "I'm not going to cut from the military. In fact, I'm going to add to our military commitment. I believe our military continues to be critical to protect our freedom. I do not see the world as being a safer place. I see the developments around the world as calling for continued investment in our military. That doesn't mean there's not waste in our military system. There is. Anyone's who spent time working with government knows there's opportunity for improvement and I'm told by those closest to the Department of Defense that there's plenty of opportunity at the DoD for cost savings and systems improvement."
ROMNEY says: "I can tell you that one area I've focused upon is the fact that we have a hard time getting jobs for people all over the country. Over 9 percent of our fellow Americans are out of work. Among veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan that number is substantially higher which is a tragedy and a shame. And I want to go to work getting our economy going again. I have to admit I've been very disappointed with our President. I feel he has not devoted the right focus nor has he implemented the right policies to get our economy going again. And the proof is the fact that he's been in office three years and we still have 26-million people who are out of work or who have stopped looking for work or have only been able to find part time employment. And I want to get our economy going again, I've put together a plan to do that, and as part of that I want to make sure that folks who have served in our military and have cared for our freedoms have been able to find jobs."
ROMNEY says: "You probably know that it is my view that the withdrawal of all of our troops from Iraq by the end of this year is an enormous mistake and a failing by the Obama Administration. Secretary Pinetta and others indicated they were working to put in place a status of forces agreement to maintain our presence there so we could most effectively transition to the Iraqi military and Iraqi security forces providing security for their country. The precipitous withdrawal is unfortunate. It's more than unfortunate, it's tragic. It puts at risk many of the victories that were hard won by the men and women that serve there."
Pan of people at lunch.
