After notching a win in the first Republican presidential primary of the campaign season, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney gave a speech in which he reiterated his steadfast support for Israel and assailed President Obama for being a “failed” leader.

In his only reference to foreign policy, Romney stated that Obama “criticizes our friends like Israel. I will always stand with our friends.”
