Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a presumptive front runner for the Republican presidential nomination, told a Nevada audience that President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has failed the country, the Las Vegas Journal Review reported.

And he told the crowd at the Republican Jewish Coalition during a meeting Saturday that he was surprised Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Syrian President Bashar Assad “a reformer,” even as he put down protesters.

"Obama is either unwilling or incapable of dealing with this," Romney said, referring to the upheaval in the Middle East. "Israel's very existence may be at stake."

Romney said Obama’s lack of executive experience has become obvious with his weakness on both foreign and domestic policy. "The consequences of seeing someone learn on the job have not been pretty," Romney said.

He said Obama's efforts to engage Iran and North Korea have "not worked
out terribly well."

"I don't think he understands that not all the leaders of the world have common interests or all the people in the world have common interests," Romney said. "We are not like them, and we don't have common interests with them. We have common interests with people who seek and love freedom."
