Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt has written an essay for National Review critical of President Barack Obama's foreign policy.
"In Afghanistan, our troops are being killed by the people they’re supposed to be training. Egypt is now run by the Muslim Brotherhood," Blunt writes. "Secretary Panetta recently warned that the Syrian regime is moving its chemical weapons. Iran has refused to comply with requests to take specific, concrete steps to stop its nuclear pursuit. And the president’s disregard for our longest-standing allies was most recently highlighted when he declined a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel."
Blunt, though, offered few specifics about how Mitt Romney would be different.
"We need leadership in the White House to face the real threat of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism, and we need a president who will tell the truth instead of spinning the facts to serve his political needs," Blunt writes.
Romney has basically endorsed the current timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan. He has not offered a drastically different approach to the unrest in Syria. He has not differed dramatically from the White House's approach to a nuclear Iran, other than to say he would be more outspoken.
Romney has said he will work more closely with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
