Obama Plays His Advantage on National Security

Politico reports how the Obama campaign has been targeting Mitt Romney on national security.

"Romney -- whose convention speech didn't include a salute to the troops or a reference to Afghanistan, where about 75,000 Americans are still at war -- is getting hit almost daily now by Democratic attacks that he is wobbly and therefore untrustworthy on national security. It's the same critique Republicans used to undermine Kerry to devastating effect eight years ago -- and the Obama campaign plans to use the run-up to the presidential debates to make a major issue of Romney's surprising convention stumble."

BuzzFeed notes that for the first time in a very long time, a Democratic presidential candidate has a clear advantage on national security issues.
