WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Mitt Romney is stressing the United States' long ties with Poland as he caps a weeklong foreign tour designed to prove his leadership on world affairs and highlight his differences with President Barack Obama.
The Republican presidential candidate is readying a foreign policy speech for delivery Tuesday. His three-nation tour began last week in Britain and took him to Israel.
Romney stumbled along the way, inadvertently insulting Brits and angering Palestinians, and was left looking to Poland as a final opportunity to project the image of a leader ready to stand on the world's stage.
The two-day trip to Poland is aimed at Polish-American and Catholic voters in the U.S. and will highlight Romney's stance toward Russia. He has labeled Russia America's No. 1 geopolitical foe.
