Allen West: Mitt Romney's VP must have military experience

In a recent speech at the Young America’s Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference, Rep. Allen West expressed his view that whoever Mitt Romney chooses as his vice presidential running mate, must have military experience.  llen said that a VP candidate with prior military experience could help fill the holes in Romney’s resume. The Huffington Post reports:

Speaking at the Young America’s Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference on Friday morning, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said military experience is the most important trait that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s running mate must have.

“First time in 77 years there is a possibility that neither the sitting president and vice president, or the candidates for president and vice president have served in the military … and when I look at the number one title for president of the United States of America is commander in chief, that’s what concerns me,” West said.
