In a speech today, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney argued for a "change in course" in U.S. foreign policy, stating in reference to President Obama's current policies in the Middle East that "hope is not a strategy."

Romney said that under President Obama, the risk of conflict in the Middle East has grown.

The Obama campaign is dismissing Romney's remarks, saying he's is trying to rewrite his record of past blunders.

Meantime, a poll out today shows Romney with a small but significant bounce in the polls from last week's debate, gaining several points to pull even with Obama in the three days after the televised match-up.

The candidates' vice presidential picks Paul Ryan and Joe Biden will square off this Thursday in their first and only debate.
