Romney said:

"the biggest announcement in his last State of the Union address on improving our military was that the Pentagon will start using more clean energy"

Senator John Warner, R-VA, and others think Pentagon energy efficiency is a pretty big deal.  But ok, I'd agree that a "new defense strategy" and "legislation that will secure our country from the growing dangers of cyber-threats" are both bigger announcements. Both were in the last State of the Union.  In fact, Harry Reid is trying to round up enough GOP votes to pass Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT)'s compromise version of the bill this month. Curious that Romney, who talked quite a bit about cyber in his speech at the Citadel last year, didn't mention it at this key time.
