The America ’s foreign policy is not clear after watching the third presidential debate. The reason for its ambiguity due to a series of foreign policies instead of singular foreign policy which must be tailored to fit each nation.

The failure of President Barack Obama most recent foreign policy, the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed, including the U.S. ambassador are all expecting Romney to go after the President. The inadequacy of security in Benghazi , the president had no explanation at all but instead by saying only that we are “going after the killers.” There was no pressing on Obama about this issue by Romney. A missed opportunity had been viewed by some and supposes a designed for Romney to show his restraint and counter the “do you want to get us into another Middle East War?” charge.
“We can’t kill our way out of this mess,” meaning terrorism and the Middle East , one of Mr. Romney’s better lines but he failed to go for the political “kill” instead agreeing for several times with the president.
The ultimate question of the moderator Bob Schiefer, “What is America ’s role in the world?” the answer of the candidates neither was revealing beyond their campaign speech bromides.
The “liberal media” which has been in the tank for Mr. Obama since he began running for president was surprisingly the reaction to the debate. A retreat from the worshipful attitude by some of them they have displayed toward the president since four years ago as a self promotion as a messianic deliverer from the national sins.
“I think Mitt Romney did something that was extremely important to his campaign tonight, and that was he passed the commander-in-chief test,” former White House aide David Gergen said on CNN. That was Romney indeed he had to do with the debates like of Ronald Reagan in 1980 with Jimmy Carter.

The Democrats and the media saying Mitt Romney maybe guilty of bad timing should not be cowed by both of them into staying silent on what looks to be a terrorist killing of U.S. ambassador.

The infiltration of terrorist into the U.S. consulate in Libya made President Obama accountable for how his administration allows this to happen. Instead of preventing the demonstrators from scaling its walls, embassy in Cairo appeared to be more worried about hurting the feelings of Islamic extremists hence, White House must explain about this moved.
The important is the threat of terrorism for a presidential candidate to sit down on the sideline, even it means, wading into an issue that is not the strong suit of the former Massachusetts governor’s case.
Romney’s former rival asked, Newt Gingrich, in a Herald interview, “Why wouldn’t a presidential candidate speak up?” and further said, “The president wasn’t (speaking up).”
It’s unclear whether the administration of Obama took the threats seriously enough as what Gingrich pointed out. He may not be the best public defender of Romney, but he has a good point of saying Obama didn’t say much about the growing unrest in Libya leading up to the attacks.
All of a sudden Obama has plenty to say about Romney and his reaction to the likely terror attacks, dismissing him for a “shoot first and aim later” attitude.
The failure of the administration to prevent the first killing of a U.S. ambassador is in comparison in 1979 during the Carter administration when Romney issues a statement criticizing Obama before the attacks were over.
The opponent of Jimmy Carter during the re-election campaign did not shy away from criticizing his leadership after Iranian terrorist held 52 Americans hostage.
Ronald Reagan was the opponent.
According to an Associated Press story, Reagan assailed for “weakness and vacillation” during the 1980 campaign and the Democratic administration was blamed for helping to “create the entire situation that made their kidnap possible.”
Take note of that, Mitt – After a botched military raid to release the hostages, Reagan wisely did not criticize Carter immediately but was not afraid to put the hostage takers notice, saying he wouldn’t “stand by and do nothing.”
