The Democratic National Committee is sending out emails by the bucket, mocking Mitt Romney's foreign policy debut in London. But White House Press Secretary Jay Carney passed on an opportunity to weigh in.
Asked how'd he'd rate Romney's performance, Carney smiled and said "I would not." Instead, he noted the role of foreign policy in the presidency.
"The presidency involves, as a huge component of the job, engagement in national security affairs, engagement with foreign leaders and countries around the world," Carney said. "And it is important work, even when the attention of others is elsewhere."
