On Tuesday, Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee for president, slammed President Obama's foreign policy record, saying his actions had threatened America's status as the leader of the free world. In a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars association in Reno, Nev., Romney said Obama had abandoned America's friends while giving comfort to to its enemies. Romney also accused the White House of leaking details about Obama's foreign policy successes — such as the killing of Osama bin Laden — for "political advantage." Romney's speech came days ahead of an overseas trip to burnish his own credentials in foreign policy, with which he has little to no experience.
