Obama Slams Romney on Final Debate

Obama Slams Romney on Final Debate(Boca Raton) – US President, Barack Obama accused challenger Mitt Romney of being wrong on all foreign policy choices he has taken, in a forceful start to the final debate before elections. The two candidates clashed over Syria, Libya and other hot-spots minutes in the debate in Boca Raton, Florida.
Obama, who withdrew troops from Iraq, pointed to Romney’s past statements in support of keeping a US military presence in the country that was attacked in 2003 under former Republican president George W. Bush. “Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s,” Obama said.
Whereas, Romney offered a dismal assessment of Obama’s foreign policy, pointing to bloodshed in Syria and in Libya and twice mentioned Al-Qaeda gains in Mali. Romney, while rejecting direct US intervention in Syria, said that the United States should be doing more to bring an end to the violence and to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
Obama called the violence in Syria “heartbreaking” saying, “we are going to do everything we can to make sure that we are helping the opposition. But we also have to recognize that for us to get more entangled militarily in Syria is a serious step,” Obama said.
