Romney: Obama Too Busy on the Golf Course, Can't See Reality from the Fairway

On “Fox News Sunday,” former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) said President Barack Obama is “really out of touch with reality.”

In taking a shot at the president golfing, Romney said, “The president has been too busy on the golf course” adding “I don’t know if you can’t see reality from the fairway.” 

“I think the president is really out of touch with reality when it comes to what’s happening in the world,” Romney said. “And I don’t know why that is. Perhaps it’s political philosophy, foreign policy views. He looked at Russia and thought that was a friend we should reset relations with. he looked at al Qaeda and said they’re on the run. he looked at ISIS and said, oh, they’re just the jr. varsity. He looks at Iraq and says they’re strong and able to care for themselves. He is so out of touch with reality that he hasn’t taken the action necessary to prevent bad things from happening. A strong America that stands up for its beliefs is an America able to defend itself and our principles around the world. When the president is seen as being weak, bad people do bad things. You’re seeing that all across the Middle East. you’re seeing it in other parts of the world, Afghanistan, Ukraine, it’s a real tragedy.”

“The president has not been engaged,” he continued. “The idea that we have a group known as ISIS that we’ve known about for a year, they’ve said get ready for this, great prepared for them. We’ve fought long and hard to provide security for those people. yet, the president was too busy on the golf course to pick up the phone and meet with the leaders around the world. I don’t know whether you can’t see reality from a fairway, but the president has not seen the reality internationally.”

Romney also laid to rest rumors he will launch another presidential bid saying, “I’ve spoken on this topic so many times, I don’t really have anything new to do add. I’m not running, I’m not planning on running.”
