That was the week that was

After a week both parties dubbed "terrible," Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney's campaign went on the attack.

On Monday, Romney told an audience in Pueblo Colo. that U.S. Foreign policy should not be conducted "at the mercy of events" overseas. He also said the death of a U.S. Ambassador in Libya and unrest in the Middle East are more than just bumps in the road.

Romney was referencing President Obama's interview with "60 Minutes." When asked about recent events in the Middle East (but not the attack in Libya specifically), Obama said the following:

"There are going to be bumps in the road because... in a lot of these places the one organizing principal has been Islam."
