seems to be out on a limb. The incidents of unrest against the US in the Arab World triggered by the death of the Ambassador in Libya have revealed the vulnerable underbelly of Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for the post of the 45th President of the USA.
He knows that foreign affair is his Achilles Heel and that is not the quality of one who aspires to be rule from the White House.
This major weakness had come to surface during his global tour in July-2012 in which he had cut a sorry figure on a number of issues – these did not enhance the prestige of a future President of the USA, the most powerful country in the World.
Recently, while speaking at a rally of roughly 2,700 supporters in Northern Virginia, he was recounting a conversation he had with former Polish President Lech Walesa during his July visit.
The Republican President hopeful Mitt Romney has restated what Lech Walesa had said about the world needing American leadership.
And – Romney went on to say he intended to lead America to the goal of an America that is strong, that helps lead the world.
He also added that if he is selected to be the President, he would restore the military commitment of the US and ensure that America has the strongest military in the world.
Observers feel that Romney's response to the events overseas could have damaged his political prospects and ambitions.
However, he later returned to more familiar territory when he focused on how he will fix America's economy and restore jobs.
This has been reported in huffingtonpost.com of 13th of September 2012.
His initial responses to the death of diplomats in Libya were viewed in many quarters as playing politics with national security and had apparently got many senior GOP officials worried over how he would fare in next month’s foreign policy debate.
Therefore, while speaking in West Virginia, he wanted to shift the focus from his bungling of the issue of foreign affairs pertaining to the Libyan trouble and uprisings against the US in the Arab World to domestic issues like the 23 million Americans out of work or having stopped looking for work or underemployed and the unemployment being above 8 percent for 43 straight months.
Polls show that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are running neck-to-neck in Ohio and that the outcome of the 2012 US Elections would depend more on charisma of the leader rather than on issues of the day.
