WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- Mitt Romney has wrapped up his three-nation overseas trip by praising Poland's economy as a model of small government and free enterprise that other nations should try to copy. Before heading home, Romney also sought to minimize the damage from comments in Israel that brought criticism from Palestinian leaders. Romney tells Fox News he wasn't criticizing the Palestinian culture when he told Jewish campaign donors that their own culture is part of the reason that they have seen more economic success than the Palestinians have. While in Poland, Romney paid tribute to Jews who rose up and fought the Nazis during World War Two. Romney and his wife laid flowers at the memorial of the Warsaw Uprising. The Romneys also shook hands with elderly military veterans.
