Tim Roemer, foreign policy advisor for the Obama campaign, weighs in on the American politics of the unrest in the Middle East, arguing that unlike Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama did not make the violent protests political.
Roemer also responds to criticism of the president's statement that Egypt is not a U.S. ally, explaining that he thinks that Obama "was feeling some frustration...given the tragic loss of our ambassador and our other three American family members."
Regarding Romney's approach to the unrest in the Middle East, Roemer says,“Governor Romney has made a score of mistakes in his foreign policy. I think he wants to harken back to the playbook during the Bush years of everything can be solved by intervention of our military.”
