Obama responded to Romney's statement that he wants to add billions in defense spending to grow the US military by saying that Romney does not understand how the military works nowadays:

The question in the mind of Democrats and those who want to see president Obama reelected was: Will Obama mention Romney’s 47% quote? Will he go there? Democrats wanted to hear Obama talk about it.
