Mitt Romney: 'The World Around Us Is Going To Hell' Thanks To Obama's Foreign Policy

Mitt Romney speaking in Sun Lakes, Arizona on September 14, 2011

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney fired off at President Barack Obama during a Nov. 17 talk radio interview, calling him "one of the very worst foreign-policy presidents in American history."

"It's a sad commentary that the president's been so ineffective," Romney said on "The Hugh Hewitt Show," a conservative talk radio program.

Romney also blasted Obama for his foreign policy choices. and ridiculed him for saying that the Islamic State was geographically "contained" shortly before the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France.

"Once again, you have a president not acknowledging that what he told us was wrong," Romney said. "He told us that ISIS was contained and he was wrong. He initially told us that he didn't have a strategy to deal with ISIS, then he tells us that he has a tactical approach. And his approach has not worked."

Romney, who along with current speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan, ran for president against Obama in 2012, didn't stop there.

"I just think that on the issue of foreign policy — and [protecting] America and America's interests, and the interest of freedom secure and strong — the president's been a disaster," Romney said. "I think he may go down in history as one of the very worst foreign-policy presidents in American history."

This has directly resulted in "loss of life" and "the loss of freedom," he explained.

"I find it troubling and revealing that the world around us is going to hell, and the president takes no responsibility," Romney added.

Some Republicans who dislike Washington outsider candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson, have reportedly called on Romney to join the 2016 presidential race, but the former governor shut them down during a Nov. 16 "Today" interview.

"I'm not running, I'm not planning on running," he told "Today" host Savannah Guthrie. "I'm very much engaged in the political battles but I'm doing it as a supporter of Republicans out of conservatism rather than an active candidate."
