-- fifteen minutes from now against the continue to follow this market sell off well right now it is time for our debate this series each day we're gonna take on a different issue.
All the way up to Election Day foreign policy was the focus of last night's final -- day.
Here's one test exchange.
Whether it's Iraq whether it's now.
You've been all over the map.
Attacking me is not agenda.
Attacking me is not talking about how we're gonna deal with the challenges that exist.
Now it is actually.
Debate this -- policy addition Christian -- is a former State Department senior advisor for President Bush.
And Bernard Whitman is author at -- reasons to vote for Obama he's also the CEO of Whitman.
Insights strategies and Kristin I wanna go to your first on this one that was.
Romney is defense against the president core rat did he take the right -- plus night in strategy.
Peso shot you know -- -- media came up by I think Romney frankly -- Palma pass on what is spent.
Essentially a cover up -- -- of the US government lying to the American people about what really happened in Libya.
But what Obama -- -- be Romney was doing really was letting Obama.
Take the first punch which he did really in his first response Obama very aggressive in frankly on presidential very.
Bitter throughout the entire debate Romney.
Making some good counter punches but doing it very delicately you know.
Really hitting the president hard on what Romney called his apology to -- his betrayal of allies like Poland.
And the Czech Republic but overall keeping it relatively clean keeping relatively focused on the future and looking president.
I thought OK -- presidential -- in at this time -- -- that is a fair question here is the issue of Libya and many believe that that governor Romney missing key opportunity.
Last night to go after the present on the issue of Libya I mean didn't -- miss an opportunity here.
Well I think the fact that he failed to bring it up died last night he really failed to articulate properly in the first -- he failed to then.
In the intervening period between two days.
Really raise the issue shows that he cannot figure out how to politically exploit.
The tragedy of a murder of -- US ambassador in the American people are tired of that sort of politics who -- if Romney actually had an opportunity to draw that distinction he thought -- concurring in favor he would have.
Clearly he doesn't and the reason is that this president has been and extraordinary commander in chief in the real difference in debate last night.
Was -- -- all sincere -- look presidential he looked authentic you look resolute.
-- the needs of video saying that your guy -- presidential fair -- I would expect that at the same time Bernard I'm sorry but this president is dealing with an economy that does not come back in four years and governor Romney last night didn't make the point.
Within the foreign policy debate that President Obama has not protected the US economy therefore that makes -- week.
Against our enemies -- Arafat the fact that Mitt Romney is putting on the daily -- is laughable Mitt Romney looks like a deer in headlights -- looked like he was getting his talking points.
Delivered through his ear piece from someone reading.
-- the Obama debate strategy why because he agreed with the present nothing can stand here greater someone Iraqi agree with months here he greeted -- -- drones.
He really had very little to offer.
And frankly the president schooled him consistent -- So -- it's a -- you think the president's goal of schooled.
Mitt Romney on the issue of the economy is up there.
Now I don't think so I thought it was actually quite masterful that Romney brought it back to what most people care about going back to this issue that.
It also find a Democrat talking points the mainstream media talking points is that these two men agree on everything but Obama is -- -- but Romney is completely.
Ron you know Ronnie came out and articulated a vastly different approach to Syria Obama's policy is do nothing and rely on the UN Romney's policy is -- Maybe we want -- house and influence over the people who are going to inherit asides chemical weapons so let's provide arms to the more secularist.
You know -- also talked about the future of the Middle East about confronting Islamist he talked about Iran.
And instead as you know Obama flat out lied about Iran saying he's been working on sanctions from the beginning Obama's inaugural address had a love note for the Iran hashing out.
As are -- that the continued this one of course have gotten anywhere debates coming up Christian white and Bernard Whitman.
-- thanks about the view dumb and for your support -- candidates well.
