Romney Zeroes In On Foreign Policy

Romney Zeroes In On Foreign Policy, The nominee won't let go of Obama's "bumps in the road" remark after recent violence overseas Romney shifts focus back to Obama's foreign policy, Sensing a potential opening, Mitt Romney is shifting his focus back to foreign policy amid controversy over the Obama administration's response to a terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead.

The Republican presidential nominee published an op-ed in Monday's Wall Street Journal criticizing President Barack Obama's suggestion that the developments overseas are "bumps in the road." He accused Obama of allowing America's leadership in the world to "atrophy."

"These developments are not, as President Obama says, mere 'bumps in the road.' They are major issues that put our security at risk," Romney writes. "Yet amid this upheaval, our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them. We're not moving them in a direction that protects our people or our allies. And that's dangerous. If the Middle East descends into chaos, if Iran moves toward nuclear breakout, or if Israel's security is compromised, America could be pulled into the maelstrom."
