It's Mitt Romney's turn to address the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Reno Tuesday, and he'll use that platform to take a break from his usual economy shtick to accuse President Obama of deliberately leaking details of the raid on Osama bin Laden's hideout in Pakistan to benefit him politically. "This conduct is contemptible. It betrays our national interest. It compromises our men and women in the field," excerpts of Romney's speech read. "And it demands a full and prompt investigation, with explanation and consequence." Romney has made these accusations before and the president called them "offensive." During a White House news conference in June, Obama said, "People, I think, need to have a better sense of how I approach this office and how the people around me approach this office."
