Romney says US-Israel policy must be in step

Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney says there can be no differences between the United States and its ally Israel in its posture in the Middle East.

Romney and other GOP candidates on Thursday criticized President Barack Obama's administration and posture toward Israel. He says that Obama has disrespected its closest friend in the Middle East and has been unclear in its broader policy in the region.

Businessman Herman Cain says that policy in the regions should be that any country that "messes with Israel" is actually challenging the United States.
