President Obama offered his likely Republican opponent Mitt Romney a caustic “good luck” for Super Tuesday.
Asked at a news conference if he’d like to respond to Romney’s comments calling Obama the “most feckless president since Carter,” Obama said: “Good luck tonight.”
Ten states will head to the polls for the March 6 Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, and Romney is expected to win a plurality of delegates. That would set up a showdown with Obama in the fall.
Obama had been asked if he had anything to say in response to a Romney op-ed in which the former governor criticized his policy toward Israel and Iran and said “hope is not a foreign policy.”
Obama did not directly answer the question, but earlier in his news conference he criticized GOP bluster for a war with Iran.
