President Obama will have to pull out all the stops if he plans to win tonight’s third and final debate. With the topic of the evening being foreign policy, Mitt Romney finds himself with a lot of ammo to use against the POTUS after their last meeting. President Obama’s response to the September attacks on a U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya came under fire after audience member Kerry Ladka posed a question on the refusal of heightened security prior to the attacks.
Ladka’s question sparked one of the most heated moments of this year’s campaign, but also opened the floodgates as more information on the commander in chief’s handling of the situation has come forth. U.S. drones were reportedly on watch as the attacks on the consulate began, but no military action was ordered. To make matters worse, the U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, made a request for enhanced security hours prior the Sept. 11 attack. Stevens was one of the four killed in the attack.
Media stops on Obama’s campaign trail also haven’t helped his case as the president referred to the deaths in Benghazi as, “Not optimal,” on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. With Romney essentially having zero foreign policy practices to attack, he looks to be on the offensive tonight and solidify his bid for president.
