Mitt Romney Lacks The Foreign Policy Experience And Vision Needed To Be President

Mitt Romney lacks the foreign policy experience and vision needed to be President of the United States.
  • Yesterday Mitt Romney said Russia is “without question our number one geopolitical foe,” further undermining his credibility on foreign policy while trying to attack the President. Romney lacks the foreign policy experience and vision necessary to be president.
  • Romney once said “a president is not a foreign policy expert” and that a president should “sit down with your attorneys” so they can “tell you what you have to do” on critical foreign policy issues. America needs a decisive leader who makes the right calls as Commander in Chief, not someone who can’t make their own decisions on foreign policy issues.
  • President Obama is that decisive leader. When he was running for office in 2008, we’d lost focus in the Middle East, so he promised to refocus on the real issues: getting out of Iraq, decimating al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, and taking the fight to Osama Bin Laden. He did all three.
  • President Obama’s foreign policy vision looks forward, and Romney’s is stuck in the last century. Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Wesley Clark said Romney’s comment “sounds like a rehash of Cold War fears,” and that “good policy does not come from bumper sticker slogans. The next president is going to have to take America forward, out of war, and into other challenges. The rekindling of old antagonisms hardly seems the way to do it.”
