Mitt Romney reacts to President Obama's Afghanistan speech

Mitt Romney issued the following response to President Barack Obama’s remarks on Afghanistan tonight:

“We all want our troops to come home as soon as possible, but we shouldn’t adhere to an arbitrary timetable on the withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan. This decision should not be based on politics or economics. America’s brave men and women in uniform have fought to achieve significant progress in Afghanistan, some having paid the ultimate price. I look forward to hearing the testimony of our military commanders in the days ahead.”
