FILE - In this Aug. 18, 1988 file photo, Republican presidential candidate George H.W. Bush and his running mate Sen. Dan Quayle, R-Ind.,  stand together during the final night of the Republican National Convention in New Orleans. Mitt Romney did not mention the war in Afghanistan, where 79,000 US troops are fighting, in his speech accepting the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday. The last time a Republican presidential nominee did not address war was 1952, when Dwight Eisenhower spoke generally about American power and spreading freedom around the world but did not explicitly mention armed conflict. Below are examples of how other Republican nominees have addressed the issue over the years, both in peacetime and in war.   (AP Photo/Bob Daugherty, File)
