Romney, Ryan Criticize Obama Foreign Policy
As the two presidential candidates focus on preparing for Wednesday night’s debate in Denver, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is keeping up the GOP attacks on President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.
Ryan told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that the Obama administration has been inconsistent on what led to the attack last month on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. He said there hasn’t been a consistent answer on whether it was a premeditated terrorist attack or a spontaneous uprising over a YouTube movie that criticized Islam. And Ryan says it’s clear that the administration’s policy has “unraveled” in the Middle East.
Mitt Romney has been making the case that he’s better suited to be commander in chief than Obama is. In a column published in the Wall Street Journal today, Romney says Obama has “misunderstood” American values in his foreign policy. He accuses the president of minimizing the seriousness of the attack in Libya.
