Romney disses his alma mater

Mitt Romney criticized Harvard University during a foreign policy speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention in San Antonio, Texas.

Romney bashed what is often seen as a liberal bastion with anti-war views.

“That may be what they think in that Harvard faculty lounge, but it’s not what they know on the battlefield!” he told the vets.

Romney shows a narrow understanding of the military. Few soldiers really understand why they fight on the modern ballteifled. 

In the The Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred Tennyson, this is made quite clear: 

Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Some one had blunder'd.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Romeny received received the business and law degrees that helped propel him toward his highly lucrative venture capital career. He was also the governor of Massachusetts, the home state of Harvard U.
