There is no shortage of stories dominating the news this week, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning? These are some of the stories in the news this week.
Romney’s Foreign Tour: GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrived in London on Wednesday to kick off his three country foreign policy tour. Team Romney says that his trip abroad will boost the governor’s foreign policy plans and serve as more of a “listen and learn.” “We don’t anticipate that this is an opportunity for the governor to make any specific policy pronouncement,” said Romney’s campaign foreign policy director Lanhee Chen. On Tuesday, Romney addressed a crowd at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention stating that American exceptionalism and nationalism would lead his foreign policy. “I am an unapologetic believer in the greatness of this country. I am not ashamed of American power,” said Romney. His six day tour will also include stops in Poland and Israel.
