“He’s been out there trying to take credit for his policies,” said Romney, standing in front of an oil rig in Shreveport. “Actually I think he’s confused–it’s his policies that have caused a lot of our problems. He shouldn’t be trying to take credit, he should be pointing out he made some big mistakes.”

“This is a president who has some apologizing to do and it’s not to the people overseas for America, it’s to the people in America for his policies.”

“I’m reminded of another tour he took at the beginning of his administration. He went around the Middle East and apologized for America,” he said. “You know instead of apologizing for America he should have stood up and said that as the president of the United States we all take credit for the greatness of this country.”
