Romney Slams Obama's Apology Tour

In a speech to the Heritage Foundation today, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney made clear his feelings about President Obama’s recent actions, roundly condemning his “tour of apology” to the world. "This is the time for strength and confidence, not for apologizing to America's critics," said Romney. He added that "arrogant, delusional tyrants can not be stopped by earnest words and furrowed brows.” The prospective 2012 Republican presidential candidate detailed a plan for national security, including an increase in defense spending by $50 billion per year and “regime-crippling sanctions” against North Korea. Romney appears to be on his own tour of criticism. On Sunday, he said, "We don't want a president and a head of the [United Auto Workers] running General Motors. The American public ought to own that enterprise."
