Strong Military And A Strong America:
KGAN (Iowa) Anchor: "Romney is in the middle of a three-day visit to Iowa and says he would reverse troop cuts made under the Clinton administration. And he would also increase the military's budget. He says he would increase the size of the military by at least a 100,000 troops. This is part of Romney's Three-Legged Stool philosophy." (KGAN, 6/16/07)
