Sen. Barrasso: 'The president has failed to lead'

Citing unnamed senior Obama administration officials, the New York Times reported this weekend that American and Iranian officials have agreed to hold direct nuclear talks, although both the White House and Iran have denied the story.

While Romney has never directly addressed whether or not he would engage in one-on-one talks with the country, Romney's surrogates dismissed Iran's willingness to talk on the Sunday talk shows.

Sen. John Barrasso discusses Romney's position on Iran on Starting Point this morning, asserting that the candidate "would do anything he could to make sure that Iran does not receive nuclear weapons."

Sen. Barrasso also responds to recent newspaper endorsements of Obama and discusses the president's track record.

    During the last presidential debate, Romney showed his lack of geography when he stated that Syria is Iran's route to the sea. Well, Syria doesn't share a border with Iran and Iran has hundreds of miles of coastline and its called the Persian Gulf. So how would Romney solve the Iranian nuclear conflict when he doesn't even know where Iran is located? Pathetic!

    Why do you bother to have this man on when he doesn't answer your questions? He simply took the platform you gave him to attack Obama's record. Falsely, I might add. No answer on Iran question.
