Posturing himself for another presidential run and promoting his new book “No Apology, the Case for American Greatness”, Mitt Romney got some push-back from Chris Wallace this weekend for asserting in his book that Obama is weak on foreign policy and an apologist to terrorists.
Said Chris Wallace to Romney’s criticism, “…is that fair to say about a president who has escalated the US involvement in Afghanistan, and who has launched more drone attacks in one year than President Bush did in eight?”
“Chris,” answered Romney, “I believe the president made an enormous error in the beginning of his administration by going across the world, starting in Muslim lands and saying that America has been derisive, dismissive, arrogant, that we have not listened to the concerns of others, that America has dictated to other nations…simply saying words like that are, one: wrong, because America has freed other nations from dictators, not dictated to them, and it also adds fuel to the fire to those who are part of the ‘blame America’ crowd. I saw even Ahmadinejad is now saying 9/11 is a fabrication. These sorts of voices should not receive any kind of support from the words of the president of the United States. ”
