WASHINGTON (AP) - Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama could have done more to persuade Russia not to annex Crimea.
Romney says Obama didn't have the foresight to anticipate Russia's intentions.
During the 2012 presidential race, Romney took criticism from Obama for saying Russia was America's "number one geopolitical foe" - not al-Qaida.

Don’t hold back, Mitt...
Romney is right.
That said, can he please stand aside?
He lost. Cruz stop worrying about healthcare, and start pounding Obama about the real problems.
Like American jobs. And Russian expansion.
He was running around slamming the Tea Pary canidates in Idaho the other day.Telling the peeps to vote for the GOP E canidate and not go off into right field. Mittens is such a slammer...If he had gone after Obama like he does conservative GOP he might actually have won the election.
Willard didn’t have the foresight to try and win the election.
Willard — dream candidate for “moderate” ‘Rats.
It’s ok with me if he points out how stupid Obama is. The more the merrier.
It sure would be nice to see Romney blast the Democrats (and Republican Establishment) on a couple of other issues, such as GUN CONTROL and AMNESTY. After all, he TOLD US that he strongly opposes both...but not a peep.
Instead he tries to goad Obama into starting World War 3.
He got shouted down by Candy Cruller when he brought up Benghazi in the debate and never brought it up again for the rest of the campaign.
Miss Romney yet? Think if some of you are able.
Day late and a dollar short.
Dare I make a simple appropriate comment on this?
The comment that Obama's judgment is faulty on Russia is correct.
No way Romney runs again. Even the RINOs don’t have Mitt on their radar.
Hard to believe that Mitt took time out from slamming the real enemies of America, the Tea Party.
Obama stole the election.
How many million conservatives stayed home in the last election ?
Romney got more of the White Male vote than Bush did.
I hope Pootie Poot keeps making trouble until November. He’s helping the GOP immeasurably.
RINOmney is running again...
It must be really difficult for Barry to act upset about Russia’s illegal invasion of the Ukraine when in actuality as a communist himself he supports Putin’s expansion of communism 100%.
Starting to smell like it don't it.
Putin is no Communist, he’s more of a Fascist Nationalist.
Mitt, STFU. If you really really really wanted to be President, you would be in charge now. Just sayin....
LOL. In other words there is nothing Romney could have done to prevent it either.
Romney cleaned up with Independents.
He not only lost to Jimmy Carter’s second term, he is the first candidate to win hugely with Independents, and lose the election.
Typical Romney apologist/supporter. Insulting and condescending.
Not to mention dead WRONG.
Illogical emotional me (your original screen name is an oxymoron), I only wish I could "miss" Romney but the bastard keeps on rising from his coffin like a frikkin' vampire. Romney was bad news and destructive to conservatism in 2008, Romney was WORSE news and MORE destructive in 2012, and it is looking very much like he will be THE WORST and MOST DESTRUCTIVE news in 2016.
Take your own advice and think about it, please, if you are able, which I know you are.
If you really want to see conservatism make headway in America, ILlogical me, you will start CLAMORING for Romney to get the hell out of the Republican party.
Faulty judgement? Ya think, Mitt?
can’t have “faulty judgment” when he has Zero judgment
Sadly, old Mitt fits in quite nicely with today's Republican Party, as does McConnell, Christie, McCain, and Ryan. Politicians like Cruz and Mike Lee are storming the GOPe ramparts.
Yes he was. I changed my tagline in honor of Duc Willard du Mexican Chicken Ranch.
“Instead he tries to goad Obama into starting World War 3.”
It is an area of overlap for neocons and transnationals. Occupy Terra.
2007: NO WAY John McCain gets the nomination! Absolutely impossible, ridiculous!
2011: NO WAY Romney gets the nomination! Absolutely impossible, he's toast!
I am fully prepared, and am telling others to be prepared, for a Uniparty dilemma in 2016 very much like the Uniparty dilemma we faced in 2008 (except for fluke Palin, whom I voted FOR) and in 2012. The GOP nominee may or may not be Romney (though frankly, I think it will be), but regardless, it will be the GOPe's big-government leftist vs the Democrat's big-government leftist.
We had better start pondering and analyzing NOW the possibilities and opportunities that third party dynamics can bring to 2016 that ASSIST conservatism. Third party dynamics certainly aided conservatism both times Perot ran, even though Clinton won. Let's assess and learn from history.
And repeat until it finally sinks in: voting "against" is necessarily, by definition, mathematically AND materially one hundred percent illusion. Totally PRETEND.
The ONLY power any American has is to vote FOR. Deal with it.
Yep. Please see my post #33 for a suggested way to deal with it.
Yeah, when you hear that kind of tough talk, you know things won't end well. /S
Look, I know you are on record here as saying you support Obamacare. Your delusions aside, that piece of unConstitutional legislation is, in itself, a destroyer of jobs....not to mention the agent that will wreck lives when people need medical care.
Socialized medicine, or the destruction of the best health system care in the world, is a huge issue. Why should we stop worrying about that?
I am a conservative, and I strongly advocate for American businesses.
But I think Obamacare has indeed served a purpose, in providing a neutral coverage. That is what I like, and support. Just that part, but I strongly do.
I do not use it, but if I lose my job I likely will, at least while I am searching for a new job.
Please remember, we are also meanwhile shipping jobs by the absolute ton, to communist China. So every day, America’s jobs become ever more hard to keep.
I strongly believe the GOP needs to support that fall-back plan, and needs to support that before they do anything else. And BRING BACK AMERICAN JOBS too.
My partial support for Obamacare however is an issue which puts me at odds with just about everyone else on this site, so I better wrap my comment and shut up now.
The only way a conservative could say he supports Obamacare and American business in the same breath is if said “conservative” is insane.
That he did. Most leftists -- Al Franken, Pelosi, Reid -- stole their offices. By all reasonable observations, almost 2 in 3 Americans rejects leftism and resents intrusive government. Maybe a little more than one in three is leftist. Well, that one third minority has seized control of government force (Geo. Washington said government is a force) by negating the legitimate votes of the other two thirds, the majority.
Obama's a symptom. The cause is a vulnerable franchise made that way by a force so blatant that it doesn't even require voter ID.
But it helps explain why you're so fixated on "bring back American jobs!" without ever addressing the reasons they're gone.
I am signed up for the company health plan. Have been for about 15 years.
During this time, our company has been laying off American employees. Hundreds, maybe thousands have been laid off thus far, and I am now just waiting.
I’m series. Completely series. I have had treatment for something which means, I will (not) receive that coverage if I leave my current insurance policy.
Unfortunately, that is likely. At any time.
I now have a policy available as a fall-back plan, which will cover that.
I hate to say it, but that is Obamacare.
That is all completely true. 100%
You may or may not believe it, but I’m telling you the complete truth.
That is why I am for Obamacare.
Just saying. That is why. Because of it, I am covered if I lose my current insurance because I get laid off.
And that seems (VERY) likely at some point.
You are welcome to disagree, but I am I believe completely speaking the truth.
Republicans, we need to pay attention, I do not believe I am the only voter in this situation.
I really don’t.
Mittens—You got Nunthin’ to lose! Blast Obama with a ‘Mormon Knuckle sandwich’ Rip him up one side and then the other! Bush didn’t do it—but you can do the nation a service by helping to rid us of this Incompetent Clown and his Possie. Expose him for the worthless thing he is—and you can blast his Obamacare like no one else—as he took the Idea from You.
You aint going to run for President again—best you might earn is a VP spot under a conservative. You might find it fun to rip the smiling mask off this Progressive-neo-communist. Mitt, I didn’t like you but I voted for ya— Now your nation, the country you love, needs you to help show the truth about the most corrupt president in American History. You will be doing the Lords work.
And no one will ever convince me that he “lost” the election fair and square. More than likely, it was stolen from him and he didn’t have the foresight to see it coming. Those RINOs are way too trusting of the DEMS.
Romney lost the election, he won Independents by a huge margin, but he couldn’t make up what he lost by being so liberal and sleazy.
Willard didnt have the foresight to try and win the election.
Meanwhile, conservatives continue to eat their own..................Yea, that's the sure tried way to win elections.
Republicans eating their own
Romney isn’t “one of our own.”
You're right, but then again, the "collective" never could decide on who was "The Chosen One...."...........as evidenced by the "hall of ex-freepers" who were purged back in 2008.........LOL!
