Would Mitt Romney have prevented attacks?

Richard Williamson, a foreign policy advisor to Mitt Romney, is coming off as a real idiot.  Listen to what he said in an interview with the Washington Post.  I hate to break the news to the Romney campaign but I honestly believe, based on news reports, that this was an attack that was planned on the embassy.  Would a Romney administration have beefed up security?
“There’s a pretty compelling story that if you had a President Romney, you’d be in a different situation,” Richard Williamson, a top Romney foreign policy adviser, said in an interview. “For the first time since Jimmy Carter, we’ve had an American ambassador assassinated.”
Nobody knows what situation we would really be in under a Romney administration and I refuse to get into any of the hypothetical scenarios.  Just like nobody knows whether a President Al Gore would have prevented the 9/11 attacks from happening.
