From America's Election Headquarters...

I'm Jared Halpern at the Virginia Military Institute, where Mitt Romney made one of his sharpest rebukes of the Obama Administration's foreign policy.

(Romney) "Hope is not a strategy."

Romney calling for more engagement in Syria, to help arm the rebels who share our values.

(Romney) "And then ensure that they obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad's tanks and helicopters and fighter jets."

The Republican also accusing President Obama of allowing daylight in the U.S. relationship with Israel.

Unwilling to yield ground on foreign policy, the Obama campaign went aggressively against Gov. Romney's speech.  Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright lead the counter-offensive, dismissing the speech as light.

(Albright) "I think it is really full of platitudes and free of substance."

And the campaign released a new TV commercial focusing on Gov. Romney's perceived gaffes on a foreign tour to suggest that he's not ready for the job.

At the White House, Mike Majchrowitz, FOX News Radio.
