The president says ending the war in Iraq and transitioning out of Afghanistan have made the US stronger, and that their influence is unquestionably greater than it was four years ago. I don’t know if that is true, because Bush was certainly good at “influencing” people.
He takes Romney’s off-topic stuff to talk about green energy, and then says that Romney agrees with Bush and Chenny, and says that his policies are wrong and wreckless.
Romney says he knows how to create twelve million jobs. Lol. Unless he plans to have the government hire that many people I don’t see that happening. He then says that he wants to ‘focus’ on Latin America instead of China. What does that mean?
Obama brings up that when Romney was governor his state was 48th in the country for small business development. Then he talks about how he wants to improve education and that means hiring more teachers. Obama says that slashing education instead of raising taxes is a bad economic strategy, and foreign policy.
Romney then says that his state had the best education in the country. Huh. Didn’t know that.
Ugh, got a phone call. Romney then talks about how he wants to get rid of Obamacare because it sounds good but isn’t affordable Bur he wants to get rid of the part that pays for it but not anything that it does.
Obama points out that Romney’s budget does not work, then points out that the US spends more on military than the next ten countries combined.
Romney then says that he’s balanced budgets at his company, in his olympics, and in his state, and that the US military is outdated. Adding that there are less ships then there have been since 1940.
Obama says that yes there less ships, but there are also less horses and bayonets He says the the US just doesn’t need that many boats, and are much better defended now.
Moderator asks if an attack on Israel is an attack on the United States. Obama says yes, talks about how great Israel is and how much he is willing to do for it, and then says that as long as he is in office, Iran will not get nuclear weapons. Also, that putting soldiors into harms way is a last resort, not a first resort.
Romney then says that essentially his Iran policy is the same as Obama’s, but he wants more serious sanctions and wants to make Iranian diplomats pariahs.
Obama criticizes Romney’s policy by saying that his is just the same thing as Obama’s but saying them louder.
Romney then confirms that that is right by saying that the president isn’t saying things loud enough. Then breaks out the Apology tour bullshit. I wonder if Obama will be calling him a liar.
He does. “Every fact checker and every reporter has looked at it. Governor this is not true.” Then says that his sanctions on Iran are the tough than any sanctions have ever been.
Romney says “We are four years closer to a nuclear Iran”. Dot dot dot. Then Romney continues to repeat his apology tour stuff.
Obama then reinforces his forign policy generically and some guy is yelling in the back of the office.
