In an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last night, Mitt Romney blasted President Barack Obama’s approach to the Middle East.
“I think the president’s foreign policy is generally characterized by an effort to try to make friends with some of the world’s worst actors,” Mr. Romney said. “In some cases, to show good faith by providing things forom the U.S. that hopefully will convince people that we’re good guys. I think that’s a mistake.”
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand sent out a statement this morning commending President Obama for calling on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down.
“President Assad has brutally violated the human rights of his own people while killing thousands of Syrian citizens and fostering terrorism across his borders,” Gillibrand said in the statement. “I commend President Obama for sending a clear message to Syria that the Assad regime must respond to the democratic urging of the Syrian people by stepping down.”
