The road towards the 2012 presidential elections in the United States is now becoming hotter among possible candidates.
Republican presidential nominee hopeful Mitt Romney hit incumbent US president Barrack Obama for being too soft on his handling on the reported plans of Iran to build its own nuclear weapons. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor said if he gets the chance to win the election next year, the nuclear weapon plans of Iran will not happen.
The former governor said he will do everything in his capacity to stop Iran from its plan including going to war if it is needed. He also chided Obama on the way he is handling the the current situation in Syria, saying he had done too little to help protesters there, with President Bashar al-Assad’s bloody crackdown on demonstrators claiming an estimated 3,500 lives so far. Taking the lead in most of the surveys, Romney hoped the Republican will anoint him as its presidential candidate next year. Romney was the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.
