    We obviously know this will all revolve around the Middle East. The protests. Libya intervention.

    Of course Iran.
    Of course more Israeli ass kissing

    Republicans will tell us we need more war in the Middle East. In reality it's completely the opposite.

    Benghazi and the 9/12/12 Rose Garden speech will be brought up.

    Simply using the phrase "No acts of terror," while talking about the 9/11 anniversary doesn't erase the next two weeks of having Obama officials blaming the video and calling the attack "spontaneous."

    He clearly was referring to the attack. No matter how you view it.

    I believe it's going to revolve more around the financial crisis that is plaguing Europe more than the Middle East.

    The debate will start out with the Middle East, what to do about Iran, what happened in Libya and the whole "Arab Spring" thing last summer.

    Then it will turn to China.

    But most of the debate will focus on Europe.

    Just my opinion.

    Exactly.


    He was not referring to the embassy attack.

    That would be new and different. Hopefully they back off the invade Middle East rhetoric. We don't need to hear that stuff over and over. I think they should address on Europe. That would be an interesting debate. :cool:

    I wonder if they will punch in on the Israeli Palestinian two state solution. It seems like that's not the thing anymore.

    Doesn't really matter. Romney just needs to hammer Obama on the entire Middle East debacles. , and cruise through the final debate. Then work the swing states hard. Baring some unimaginable disaster by the Romney campaign, this race is over as of tonight. Obama needed a huge win in this second debate, as it turned out he barely tied. Obama is toast!

    This will be Mitten's toughest debate. He is erratic and stiff. He changes his positions on major issues like a windsock. Not exactly the personality type one wants negotiating with foreign leaders.

    Killing Bin Ladin is what makes Obama the kind of a leader we need in these troubled times.

    He is decisive and makes good on his threats to kill our enemies. Foreign leaders get that. The Pakistani border was Bush's excuse to not get Osama. Didn't slow down Obama in the slightest. Mittens is a pussy. Seriously. If he appears erratic like he was this evening in a military debate he is toast.
