WASHINGTON  — Republican presidential hopefuls believe Iran is a soft spot in President Barack Obama's foreign policy, and they're talking about military action to stop the Islamic republic from developing nuclear weapons.

The hawkish tone is being spurred by a recent United Nations report detailing Iran's nuclear weapons research and is meant to stand in contrast to the Obama administration's policy of pressuring and engaging Iran.

Mitt Romney said over the weekend that if we Obama is re-elected, "Iran will have a nuclear weapon."

Newt Gingrich has accused the president of being "dumb" about Iran.

Both have mentioned military action as a possibility.

Republicans have struggled to find a compelling foreign policy attack on Obama. The subject should be a strength for Obama in a next year's election.
