Romney Disses Troops: essentially says talk of soldiers is "unimportant"?

While trying to spin his way out of his major convention omission (his failure to mention either war of recent vintage and the troops that have fought those wars, yet another Romney gaffe), Romney doubles down on his bravado about his proposal to spend over and above what the Pentagon has projected its needs will be.

Romney notes, "you talk about things you think are important".  Apparently that does not include actual human beings.  But coming from one that believes that legally constructed, inanimate entities (corporations) are people should this surprise us?

Again, Romney rolls out charts and figures showing zero empathy for the lives (the soldiers and their families) affected.  Perhaps this is what happens when two candidates (Romney and Ryan) are so detached from such service?
