DEER VALLEY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Mitt Romney continued his three-day “leadership retreat,” Friday, discussing conservative strategies with the nation’s most influential G.O.P. leaders.
It is called the E2 Summit, which means, “for experts and enthusiasts.” The former Governor of Massachusetts says he wants his guests to feel comfortable and secure. That is why he asked that no photos or videos be taken.
Romney may have lost the 2012 presidential election, but he continues to fight for his personal values and political party. He invited conservative heavyweights, including Rep. Paul Ryan, Gov. Chris Christie, Mayor Kevin Johnson, Gov. Mike Huckabee, and even Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
One of today’s hot topics: foreign policy. Romney says he is not sure President Barack Obama even has one.
"Being most generous, it could be characterized as reaching out a hand of friendship to every nation and people, particularly to those who may have opposed our interests in the past," he said.
Romney said some of the country’s largest problems remain in
"The Obama, Biden, Hillary Clinton foreign policy has been a monumental bust," he said. "It's time to reflect and reshape American foreign policy."
The obstinate opinion leader says that crucial reshaping is going to require assertive leaders to step up to the plate as soon as possible.
This is the third annual year that Romney has hosted the E2 Summit. This year, he invited Mia Love, who plans to make an appearance Friday night.
