“I don't want to refer to any comments made by leaders representing any other nations,” Romney said when asked to describe the conversations in more detail. “Nor do I want to describe foreign policy position which I might have while I’m on foreign soil. I think discussions of foreign policy should be made by the president, and the current administration, not by those who are seeking office.”

LONDON - Immediately before departing Tuesday for a seven-day visit to Europe and the Middle East, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney issued a blistering attack on President Obama's foreign policy.
In front of several thousand veterans in Reno, Nev., he criticized everything from the president's approach to Iran and the way he deals with Russia to leaks that allegedly came out of the White House.

Romney's position is like mountain weather, if you don't like it, wait 15 minutes and it'll change.

Are you that dense? Is Reno,NV abroad? He was still in the US when he criticized Obama.

Yeah, it means he's got the ballz to say it here, but not there. Psssst.... They already know his views. They got the Internet and TV and stuff. It basically means he's not man enough to say what he thinks while he's in England? Or any other country for that matter? Why can't he just say the same thing he said here? Is that so freaking hard? If you're gonna attack, FREAKING ATTACK.

Traditionally, candidates didn't attack the president on foreign policy. Romney's different. He can't talk about his past that much. Obama's screwed that up, pretty bad. Bain and Romneycare. So he goes for foreign policy. He can talk a big game in America, but on the World Stage "Oooh, that's very bad." "Shhhhh" "Can't talk about that, I'll defer to the President." Gimme a break. Talk the talk, walk the walk, or go home.

Not sure where you thought you were going with this......Romney made those comments about Obama's horrible record on foreign policy on US Soil.

His comments in London weren't about Obama's foreign policy.

It's actually a fairly long standing position that you don't diss the USA while on foreign soil.

Obama didn't follow that and neither did Carter.

All other presidents and candidates have followed that noble position.
