Tonight's debate it is the final debate before the election it will focus on foreign policy.
A big issue will be the attack in Libya and the administration's handling -- he is what President Obama said on September 12.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve this great nation.
Alter that character.
The light of the values that we stand for.
Repeat no acts floral acts -- -- Tara that comment came up of the previous debate between the president to Mitt Romney last week nonetheless.
You said in the Rose Garden today after the attack it was an act of terror.
It was not a spontaneous demonstration is that what -- -- saying please -- ago.
-- Wanna make sure we get that for the record because it took the president fourteen days before he called the attack and -- -- an act of terror get the transfer.
It if he didn't and facts are so let me let me -- -- call -- an -- -- -- -- -- candidate elected.
College active terror it did as well.
Take it -- as well take that two weeks or so for the whole idea they're being a -- out there about this tape but to come out -- -- this that.
He did not refer to an act -- he referred generally to acts of terra.
Joining us now is senator John Barrasso he's Republican from Wyoming so -- up but two questions brought up the backed did the president mislead.
And secondly if you consider that he did mislead.
Should governor Romney -- the attack today.
Letting the president did mislead by the president failed.
Even if you look at the run up to the the the murder the assassination these -- -- brave Americans.
Though those signals were all there the alarm bells were going -- it it -- the the British pulled out of been Ghazi the Red Cross pulled out there'd been -- -- attacks.
I'll order our structures there.
So the president should have seen this coming but -- then you have what happens that that day and then in the next couple weeks does governor Romney.
Lose that the debate if he attacks the president on this foreign policy issue to vigorously.
Well I think that the governor will make any a spirited defense of his goals in terms of foreign policy and the biggest threat.
To our national security right now according to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Is our debt and this president has piled five trillion dollars of additional debt when the American people.
Which to me weakens our nation and I think that is the case to be made.
Tonight by by governor Romney -- do you think the governor Romney will say that you can't have a strong foreign policy a strong presence in the world if you broke when he -- point strongly well I would I would expect that he would and I expected it'll be -- -- -- that will resonate with people Ronald Reagan used to always say peace through strength and strength involves economic strength.
You if you're borrowing forty cents of every dollar you spend.
From China how do you stay a strong and independent nation you can't do it Stewart so absolutely we need to focus on.
Getting the economy going in on that poll that you showed which is essentially shows -- -- race on jobs and the economy and on the debt.
Governor Romney is really doing very very well the president is doing poorly.
What do you make of that headline in the Saturday new -- times.
Saying that Iran and America had agreed to face to face talks albeit after the election on Iran.
Now what do you make of that I read that as an October surprise I don't think it's looked giving it'll come up tonight.
Well I think it'll come up one is I think it didn't work number two is the the White House has now denied it which shows a white house with the -- with.
One going leaks that we've had obviously had to be leaked out of the White House but.
Let's face it the president wanted to negotiate with Iran and he said that four years ago when he was running so here we are four years later and he said he was gonna have a better relationship across the entire Middle East as a result of his of -- the force of his own personality and his charisma.
And what we've seen is a worse situation Iran has four times as much -- Enrich nuclear material now as they did.
Four years ago through the senate we have forced -- to the president sanctions to be used against Iran.
He's used them but then he is given a number of waivers -- you still have money from China going into.
Iran I wanna make sure that Iran gets no nuclear weapons okay senator John Barrasso Republican Wyoming always a pleasure thanks for joining us up.
Thank you Stewart so.
