> WOLF BLITZER: Well, when you say even more frightening, what’s [Obama] planning on doing [in these negotiations with Russia], in your opinion?
> MITT ROMNEY: Well, my guess is it has to do either with – with nuclear arms discussions or it has to do with missile defense sites. What he did both on nuclear weaponry already in the – in the new START treaty, as well as his decision to withdraw missile defense sites from – from Poland and then reduce our missile defense sites in Alaska from the original plan, I mean these are very unfortunate developments. And if he’s planning on doing more and suggests to Russia that – that he has things he’s willing to do with them, he’s not willing to tell the American people – this is to Russia, this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. They – they fight every cause for the world’s worst actors. The I – the idea that [Obama] has some more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling, indeed.
* Wolf Blitzer interview with Romney in March of 2012
> “Gov. Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida. You said Russia … the 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

> “I don’t know what decade this guy’s living in. Is he trying to play Ronald Reagan here, or what?”
* MSNBC host Chris Matthews
> “This is Mitt Romney’s severely conservative problem. It made Romney look dumb. He’s not a dumb man, but he said something that was clearly dumb.”
* Cynthia Tucker, professor at the University of Georgia commenting in a televised interview
> “The fact that he declared Russia the preeminent geopolitical problem that the United States faced in the world is an antiquated world view, but it’s not something that’s being hidden from Romney’s policy platform. He’s articulated stuff like this in the past.”
* Sam Stein for Huffington Post
> “Come on, Mitt. Think. That isn’t the case… I think he really needs to not just accept these cataclysmic sort of pronouncements. Let’s not go creating enemies where none yet exist.”
* Former Secretary of State Colin Powell
> “Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.”
