Former Presidential candidate John Kerry hammered Mitt Romney on foreign policy, saying he would have to "outsource" his decisions to advisers and characterized Romney's tour of Europe over the summer as a calamitous "blooper reel."
"It took President Obama, against the advice of many, to give that order to finally rid this earth of Osama bin Laden," Kerry said. "Ask Osama bin Laden if he is better off now than he was four years ago," he said to a roaring crowd.
Kerry, responding to a dig by Romney last week that Obama had promised "part the seas," saying Obama does have lofty plans to preserve the earth.
"That is the responsibility from the scriptures and that too is the responsibility of the leader of the free world," said Kerry.
Earlier this week, the Democrats caught criticism after removing the word "God" from their platform.
