Obama and Romney headed into home stretch with final debate

For months the one reliable constant for Barack Obama was the public’s approval of his handling of foreign policy and terrorism. The President would tout that Al-Qaida on the run, the war in Iraq was over, Bin Laden was dead and foreign policy was the least of his problems with voters.

Crowds cheered and national polls showed a majority in the country stood with him.

Two weeks from the national election and GOP nominee Mitt Romney has already closed the gap, pulled ahead in several polls and faces off against the President in Monday’s final debate on foreign policy.

Questions surround Libya, the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans, Egypt appears to be controlled by more Islamic hardliners that originally suggested and rumors abound that American forces with be in Afghanistan for another debate.

The 90-minute debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida offers the candidates their last opportunity to stand one-on-one before tens of millions of Americans and command their undivided attention before next month’s election.

Romney’s inexperience will be the bullseye the President will likely be targeting.

Iran, support for Israel, troops now in Jordan and the effects of the failing global economy on national security likely round out the topics of discussion for tonight.
