Above is a video of Charles Krauthammer giving an excellent and brief review of the debate.
I believe that Romney set up Obama by mentioning he went on an “apology tour”. Obama took the bait and he answered back “that is just not true”.
Romney struck back by saying
“Obama toured the world while giving apologies, skipped Israel (the Israeli’s noticed) and the USA doesn’t dictate to nations; we liberate them from dictators”. That comment had Obama looking like a deer in the headlights.
I do believe that Romney should have gone after the lies about Libya that the Obama Administration told. Romney also could have went further to explain how Russia is a geopolitical threat to the world and that the Democrat Party has a history of ‘romancing the Soviets’.
I do agree with most analysts that Romney looked Presidential at the debate by not falling into a street brawl with Obama, the Community Organizer.
Obama claimed that Romney is still stuck in the 1980′s Cold War mentality and I blame the Republicans for this, because they continue to tell the lie that Reagan defeated Communism. Someone needs to give that memo to Putin and Soros, because I am not sure they know that Reagan defeated anything. Putin wants to rebuild the old Soviet Empire saying that “the collapse of the USSR was a great tragedy”.
Romney did bring up Obama’s open mic incident with Russian President Medvedev when he claimed that “he will have more flexibility after the election”.
Why does Poland want a missile defense system to protect themselves from the Russians if Communism indeed did fall?
The threat coming from Iran is very real. Russia and China are using Iran as a proxy to destroy the USA, Capitalism and Israel. Many people blame Israel for the terrorism against the USA, but that is just Communist propaganda. The Muslims want to destroy the USA regardless of Israel, because many of them have been brainwashed that Capitalism is the enemy of the world.
The red line that Netanyahu called for was around the Spring of 2013 or possibly sooner for Iran to abandon their nuclear program. Russian nuclear submarines are all over the Mediterranean since they have a port in Syria. So, Iran doesn’t even need nukes, because the Russians will back them up anyway.
Iran has been the #1 terrorist state in the world for many years and they must be dealt with. It is long overdue.
