FILE - In this July 20, 2012 file photo, Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks in Bow, N.H. Australia’s foreign minister says he wasn’t criticizing America when he spoke of a nation “in decline” during a private conversation with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Foreign Minister Bob Carr told Romney in San Francisco on Sunday that the nation is “just one budget deal away from ending all talk of America being in decline.” Romney says Carr “led the talk of America being in decline,” which is a stronger sentiment abroad than in the U.S. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
