United States presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized the Obama administration’s police on Iran this weekend as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continued to threaten Israel. Speaking after Ahmadinejad called Israel a “cancerous tumor that must be excised,” he said Obama had failed to prevent Iran from moving forward with its nuclear program.

“America must lead the world in stopping Iran’s genocidal regime from obtaining a nuclear weapons capability,” he declared.

His running mate Congressman Ryan said, “Under President Romney our adversaries will think twice about challenging America and our allies because we believe in peace through strength. There will be no daylight between America and our friends around the world.”

House Majority leader Eric Cantor joined the criticism of President Obama’s policy in recent years, saying, “The Obama Administration wasted precious time during some of those years trying to reason with the ayatollahs and it delayed for too long in imposing sanctions that would truly bite.”

“We find ourselves in need of strong leadership in the White House. We don't have that leadership now," Cantor added.

The White House has condemned Ahmadinejad’s statements as “offensive and reprehensible.”
