Obama flails Romney on foreign policy inconsistencies
In his face-to-face encounter with Romney, Obama focused his efforts on shedding light on his rival's inconsistencies on foreign policy issues.
Counterattacking Romney over his assault on his Middle East policies, which the former governor of Massachusetts said have resulted in terrorism and a rising tide of tumult and confusion, the president brought to the fore his adversary's confusing viewpoint on a number of foreign policy issues.
"Governor Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida; you said Russia, in the 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years," Obama told his foe.
The GOP nominee insisted that while describing Russia as a No. 1 geopolitical foe, he also called Iran "the greatest national security threat we face."
