WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are trading tough words over the handling of foreign attacks on U.S. diplomatic missions in the Middle East.

Romney is accusing the Obama administration of showing weakness in the wake of the deadly attack in Libya. But he’s also being widely criticized as having spoken too soon and erroneously about the events in Libya and Egypt.

Obama made a somber statement Wednesday condemning the attacks and later told CBS News that the episode shows Romney has, in Obama’s words, “a tendency to shoot first and aim later.”

Economic concerns could play a more prominent role in the campaign Thursday, when Romney appears at a rally in the Virginia suburbs outside Washington, D.C., and Obama holds an event in Colorado’s Denver suburbs.
