Washington, June 1 (ANI): The Obama campaign has rubbished and rejected Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's comment assigning an 'F' grade to President Barrack Obama in every area, including foreign policy initiatives.
Former U.S. Ambassador to India Tim Roemer described Romney's grading as "misguided and misinformed".
In an interview with CBS News, on being asked what grade he would give Obama, Romney quipped, "Oh, an 'F,' no question about that," adding that the grade applies "across the board."
Romney, however, avoided addressing the bin Laden death issue, preferring to direct attention to Iraq and the 'Arab Spring'uprisings in the Middle East.
"When I look at foreign policy, and look at his (Obama's) decisions across the board in foreign policy, I look at the fact that he was looking to have a force of American troops staying in Iraq, securing what had been so won there, with a status of forces agreement. He failed to achieve it," Romney said, referring to an agreement between Iraq and the U.S. that expired in 2011.
While terming the 'Arab Spring' as hardly a success, he said Obama;s position on foreign policies have not enforced America's strength and resolve.
When asked if there was any area the president would receive above a failing grade, Romney said, "getting... Osama bin Laden, that's terrific." (ANI)
