Question of the Day
Mr. Romney said in a statement that he welcomed Tuesday’s mass expulsion of Syrian diplomats by the U.S. and other countries to protest the weekend massacre of dozens of civilians, including children.
But he said the move underscores the need for stronger measures to end Mr. Assad’s regime. He said President Obama’s “lack of leadership” had created a “policy of paralysis” that has led to the killing of an estimated 10,000 Syrians.
Mr. Romney called for increasing pressure on Russia to stop selling arms to Syria, and for Russia to end its obstruction at the United Nations.
Obama campaign raps Romney on Trump rhetoric
President Obama’s re-election campaign released a television ad accusing Mitt Romney of failing to stand up to “the voices of extremism” in his party.
The ad debuted Tuesday as Mr. Romney was poised to clinch the Republican presidential nomination in the Texas primary. It takes the former Massachusetts governor to task for failing to speak out against real estate mogul Donald Trump, a supporter who consistently has charged that Mr. Obama is not a U.S. citizen.
The commercial opens by showing eventual 2008 GOP nominee John McCain brushing aside a woman who raised the citizenship issue at a town hall-style meeting, and asks, “Why won’t Mitt Romney do the same?”
A Romney aide is shown telling a TV interviewer that “a candidate can’t be responsible for everything a supporter has said.”
