(CNN) – Mitt Romney blasted President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over foreign policy Thursday, saying their leadership during Obama’s first term helped weaken America’s standing in the world.

The 2012 GOP presidential nominee went after Clinton in particular for arguing that the five Taliban detainees released last month in exchange for captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl aren’t a threat to the United States.

Paul highlights bigger GOP 'tent' in meeting with top Romney donors

(CNN) - They may seem like a bit of an odd couple - but Sen. Rand Paul met on Friday with top donors to Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign.

Paul, the first term Republican senator from Kentucky who's seriously considering a 2016 GOP bid for the White House, is known as someone who hails from the conservative/tea party wing of the party, and who also enjoys strong support from libertarians who backed his father's three campaigns for president. And Romney, considered the GOP establishment candidate in 2012, was never truly embraced by the grassroots.

Inside Politics Speed Read: Is Obama turning the corner?

Obama’s poll numbers inch up: President Barack Obama leaves Tuesday for a weeklong trip to Asia. After a quick stop in Washington state to view the aftermath of the Oso landslide, he’ll continue on to Japan, the Philippines, South Korea and Malaysia.

One focus of the trip will be to build support for a large Asia-Pacific trade group - the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

As he departs, Obama is seeing an ever-so-slight uptick - from 41.2% at the end of January to 42.4% - in domestic approval, according to Gallup, which conducts a daily tracking poll and noted a slight improvement for the President in the first quarter of 2014 after a year of decline.
