Romney: 'We're at the mercy of events, rather than shaping events in the Middle East'

ABC News publishes a brief interview with Mitt Romney, which is essentially a postmortem of Sunday night's dueling interviews on CBS's 60 Minutes (Hat Tip: Memeorandum). Here's what he had to say about President Obama's remarks about the Middle East.
Well I think the president’s comments on 60 minutes last night were quite revealing. His indication that developments in the middle east represent bumps in the road is a very different view than i Have. The president, uh, I can’t imagine saying something like the assassination of ambassadors is a bump in the road, when you look at the entire context, The assassination,  the Muslim brotherhood president being elected in Egypt, 20,000 people killed in Syria, Iran close to becoming a nuclear nation these are far from being bumps in the road. They represent events that are spinning out of the kind of influence we’d like to have. We’re at the mercy events rather than shaping the events in the Middle East. and the president doesn’t have time to actually spend time with leaders of these nations particularly Bibi Netanyahu, I find that very troubling. And a suggestion that the course America is on is not the right course in the middle east.
Indeed.  Killer instinct, Mitt. Killer instinct.
