Romney: ‘Hope Is Not a Strategy’ For America’s Foreign Policy

Mitt Romney in a major speech Monday will call for a change of course in U.S. foreign policy — saying the recent, deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya is part of a “profound upheaval” and that “hope is not a strategy.”

The speech will mark one of Romney’s final opportunities before Election Day to show his potential as a world leader — amid political turmoil in the Middle East.

“The attacks on America last month should not be seen as random acts. They are expressions of a larger struggle that is playing out across the broader Middle East — a region that is now in the midst of the most profound upheaval in a century,” Romney will say, according to speech excerpts provided by the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign.
