Judge our president by the number of fallen soldiers

As a veteran and just over Veterans Day, I feel I must comment on the article by Diana West, whom I do not know, and what Romney said or did not say.

My point is that the writer says Obama has proven himself as a good commander in chief. I realize most people do not listen to their party’s promises when running for election. I heard Mr. Obama’s promise. It was “If I am elected president, the first thing I will do is to bring all our troops home.” How many dead soldiers are there that could have been prevented?

So folks, judge our president by the number of dead soldiers that keeps growing and growing.
