Mitt Romney blasted Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama suggesting they should “responsibility for the decline in American interests and the interests of freedom around the world.”

Appearing on The Hugh Hewitt Show on Tuesday, Romney said while Clinton was secretary of state, “bad things happen[ed] in Ukraine, Russia, France, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea, the South China Sea, Libya, major parts of North Africa.”  (RELATED: Romney: Obama Could Be One Of The ‘Worst Foreign Policy Presidents’ Ever)

Hewitt asked Romney if Clinton “own[s] the responsibility for the world as it is right now.”

Romney argued, “Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama take responsibility for the decline in American interests and the interests of freedom around the world. That, she was Secretary of State, he president at a time when bad things happen in Ukraine, Russia, France, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea, the South China Sea, Libya, major parts of North Africa. This has been a disastrous foreign policy and it has Hillary Clinton’s a picture on the top right hand side of the resume and Barack Obama’s on the left.”

Hewitt followed up, “Do you believe the Republican candidates have been prosecuting that case aggressively enough and with enough clarity in the first three, four debates that they’ve held?”

Romney explained, “Well there’s so many Republican candidates that much of what they’re having to do it is to distinguish themselves from one another but I think is as the process moves on and as it narrows down in terms of number of candidates, they’ll be able to spend more time focusing on be disastrous record of Hillary Clinton.”

“I sure hope that’s the case and I think there’s plenty of material to go after Hillary Clinton on,” explained Romney. “She basks in these Democratic debates where she doesn’t get attacked like she ought to and when she finally faces a Republican and by the way perhaps a bit more skeptical media that it’s been in the past, she’s gonna have a lot of explaining to do.”
