Presidential Election 2012 - #4322 - VIDEO From Third Debate: Gov. Mitt Romney - First Mentions 'Apology Tour' (2) VIDEO: Clips from Obama's Travels Overseas Apologizing for America (3) VIDEO: Gov. Mitt Romney - This Elections is a Choice Between 'Two Paths' (2,297 views) - Hot Air
From 3rd Presidential Debate - Gov. Mitt Romney - Obama Apology Tour
The President began … an apology tour, of going to various nations … and criticizing America. I think they looked at that and saw weakness. … The reason I call it an apology tour … you went to the Middle East and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and Iraq. And … you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region …. You said that … America had dictated to other nations. Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators. This is a pretty good ad, and it shows that Romney feels very comfortable at this stage playing offense, while Obama is now having to play defense — and catch-up, in terms of an agenda. The final line was the one that appeared most in my Twitter timeline (I was in class at the time of the debate), and may have been the best line Romney had on foreign policy.
Gov. Mitt Romney - Closing Remarks at Debate #3 - 'Two Paths' (2,297 views) - Hot Air - There are two very different paths the country can take. One is a path represented by the President, which, at the end of four years, would mean we’d have $20 trillion in debt, heading towards Greece. I’ll get us on track to a balanced budget. The President’s path will mean continuing declining in take-home pay. I want to make sure our take-home pay turns around and starts to grow. The President’s path means 20 million people out of work struggling for a good job. I’ll get people back to work with 12 million new jobs. I’m going to make sure that we get people off of food stamps not by cutting the program but by getting them good jobs. America’s going to come back. And for that to happen, we’re going to have to have a president who can work across the aisle. I’ll work with you. I’ll lead you in an open and honest way. And I ask for your vote. I’d like to be the next President of the United States to support and help this great nation, and to make sure that we all together maintain America as the hope of the earth. This is the closing message that Romney needs to emphasize. The foreign-policy debate is over; this election is about jobs and the economy. Read more.......
