Although Romney appeared less aggressive in the area of foreign policy, he perked up when it came to the economy, making mention of his plan to get the country back on track. Yet when asked by moderator Bob Schieffer about where he would come up with the money to increase the military without cutting defense spending, he faltered. “Well, let’s come back and talk about the military, but all the way — all the way through. First of all, I’m going through from the very beginning — we’re going to cut about 5 percent of the discretionary budget, excluding military. That’s number one.”

Schieffer retorted by asking if his proposal would bring on more debt, at which point the 65-year-old referred the moderator to his website. “I’d be happy to have you take a look. Come on our website. You look at how we get to a balanced budget within eight to 10 years. We do it by getting — by reducing spending in a whole series of programs. By the way, number one I get rid of is Obamacare. There are a number of things that sound good, but frankly, we just can’t afford them.”
