Romney: Obama Has Put US in Unprecedented Danger

By    |   Wednesday, 10 Sep 2014 11:09 PM

President Barack Obama has steered the nation into "a place of danger unlike anything we knew prior to 9/11" former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Wednesday.

In an interview on Fox News' "On The Record with Greta Van Susteren," – before the president's announcement about expanding airstrikes into Syria to "degrade" and "defeat" Islamic State (ISIS) militants – Romney ripped into Obama's foreign policy on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

"The president's policies have put us in a place of danger unlike anything we knew prior to 9/11. This is the result of a foreign policy gone severely awry," Romney said, according to the Daily Caller, which first reported the remarks.

"It's almost hard to imagine how the president's foreign policy could have been worse as it relates to keeping America safe from jihadists having territory and funds from which they can attack America."

Romney has hit Obama hard on the issue of foreign policy, criticizing his dealings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Islamic State (ISIS) and Syria's Bashar al-Assad.

But the former Massachusetts governor has repeatedly said he won't be running again in 2016 despite stellar poll numbers and wide support among Republicans.

Romney picked up the criticism of the president's ineffective policy at a fundraiser for
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is considering a White House run in 2016.

"The president doesn't quite know what to do," Romney said, the Wall Street Journal reports. "I'm proud to be on a stage with a man who knows what to do."
