Basically a Snoooooooze Fest! (transcript of the debate here) Mitt Romney missed many opportunities to clearly show the difference between him and Barack Hussein Obama. I think the debate was a draw.
Romney especially missed a big opportunity on Libya. Romney also missed an opportunity on Israel, neither Obama nor Romney actually answered the question asked.
Obama tried to paint Romney as old, ancient actually, when he said
‘We also have fewer horses and bayonets’ when talking about the size of the US Military. Obama also had his old, tired, talkng points which we are all sick of hearing.
I wonder if Obama knows about the Army’s Giant Spy Blimp Plan for Afghanistan Set Adrift. Yeah, no body will see that coming ...

The military’s distant dream of a floating eye in the sky may have become even more distant. Just over two months after the inaugural test flight of the Army’s giant robotic spy blimp — and before a planned mission over Afghanistan — the Army is saying it’s not so sure about sending the airship abroad after all. Which sort of defeats the point of having the blimp in the first place.
Obama: Roads. Bridges. Teachers. I killed Bin Laden.
Romney: "Attacking me is not an agenda"
"The president began what I would call an apology tour, going to the Middle East and blaming America," Romney said. "I think when the president said he was going to create daylight between ourselves and Israel, they noticed that."
"We're four years closer to a nuclear Iran," Romney countered. "The reason I call it an apology tour is because you went to the Middle East," Romney said. "You skipped Israel and they noticed that."
Caption this picture. I wonder what they really said to each other????
Look at that jaw!
Perhaps Romney should have mentioned the following:
NOT “OPTIMAL” – Libyan Guards Hired By The Obama Admin To Protect Benghazi Consulate Never Taught How To Shoot Guns….
The nearly universal consensus on Twitter is that Romney won by holding his own, which is all a challenger needs to do in a foreign-policy debate. After watching him talk about international affairs for 90 minutes, does he seem like a guy you’d trust with the button? If yes, then mission accomplished.
