Romney's apparent lack of deliberate, thoughtful foreign policy comments, raises questions about how he might conduct himself as President on the international stage. The former Republican President's impulsive actions or lack of action does not bode well for Romney as President based on his gaffes overseas. At least America has had a current sitting President who has been able to forge ahead on a number of major foreign policy fronts without major mistakes and thus know what he is capable of. Is this the time to change course in these perilous times? Can American take the risk?

Mitt Romney is running against Mitt Romney.

When he looses, he'll have no-one else but himself (and his campaign staff) to blame.

Romney is just playing politics, albeit a bit hasty, in a gamble that he can burn Obama, but instead burns himself. But hey, if he doesn't win the presidency, I guess he'll just have to go -- oh, wait, he has a quarter of a billion dollars. He'll just go on with business as usual for him!

This is politics. It is a game of "gotcha". The media is castigating Romney for anything they possibly can. Instead of focusing on this national tragedy, they focus more upon what Romney tweeted.

Obama has said a book full of foolish statements. Obama behaves very poorly & foolishly on the international stage. The fact that Romney spoke hastily doesn't make him wrong. A Romney presidency would bring respect and dignity back to our international relations and efforts.

Shame,shame, shame, shame, on Democrats for shooting off their mouths about George Zimmerman before getting the facts, but little reaction to what happened in Libya, and Egypt?

What happened in Egypt, and Libya is clear racism, and murder. Now, blame Mitt Romney for doing what Obama should have done? The role of a president is protecting the country, and not fund raising. We've had almost four years to observe Barack, and all this campaigning and fund raising is not needed. Flying around on Air Force One is expensive.

Let's not be hypocritical!
