Romney: "We're following the French into Libya"

On Hugh Hewitt's radio show last night, Mitt Romney claimed that Barack Obama lacks any "discernible foreign policy", and slammed him for being "tentative, indecisive, timid, and nuanced."

"America has been feared sometimes, has been respected, but today, that America is seen as being weak.

We’re following the French into Libya.

I appreciate the fact that others are participating in this effort, but I think we look to America to be the leader of the world. You know, the cause of liberty can endure the mistakes that are inevitable consequences of human fallibility. But liberty’s standard can’t prevail if it’s not proudly, decisively and consistently held aloft."
