Romney: ‘Hope Is Not a Strategy’ for the Middle East
Obama went long on hope and hype and has come up woefully short, even more so on foreign policy, than his domestic disasters.
Seeking to shore up his foreign policy credentials, Mitt Romney is delivering a major speech today attacking President Obama’s performance in the Middle East and outlining his own plans. Calling Obama “passive,” Romney will note that “hope is not a strategy,” CBS News reports. He’ll point to US embassy attacks in Libya, calling them “the deliberate work of terrorists” and slamming the administration for blaming them on an anti-Islam video. In Syria, he’ll call for the US to help arm rebel forces, while in Afghanistan, he’ll urge “a real and successful transition” of power by late 2014.
