‘Good luck tonight,’ Obama says to Romney on Super Tuesday

After the quip got laughs from the press gallery, Obama smiled and said, No, really. Really.

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.
