Romney reacts to Bulgaria 'terrorist attack'

(CNN) - Reacting to the deadly explosion on a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday released the following statement:

"The terrorist attack today in Bulgaria is a sobering reminder that the scourge of terrorism continues to threaten all free people. My heart goes out to the victims and their families, and to all Israelis who have been the targets of such brutal and cowardly violence for so long. We must stand together in the fight against terrorism, and we must prevail."

While key Israeli politicians pointed to Iran as the likely instigator, Romney made no mention of the country in his response.

  1. Republican who supports President Obama

    We have a POTUS to handle this Willard. Until you are officially elected keep your opinions to yourself. We should not allow candidates to communicated for this country.

  2. lies from obama (and mabye his father)

    @Pleasekeeptalking Oh, you mean like how Obama does? Mitt Romney has almost as much experience in foreign affairs as Obama. Then again, I have about as much foreign affairs as Obama, so that is not saying much. But, Obama did get a Nobel peace prize for doing absalutly nothing so we know he is good with the swiss.
