Obama brings up Etch-A-Sketch nature of Romney
The Kansas City Star
President Barack Obama in the final debate brought up the Etch-A-Sketch nature of Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
“Governor, you’ve been all over the map,” Obama said in the foreign policy debate, which the president also charged in the second presidential debate.
The war in Afghanistan and fighting in Pakistan also surfaced. The U.S. has to help Pakistan to be a more stable government, Romney said.
The U.S. has to keep in mind that Pakistan has nuclear weapons. The U.S. has to work with the people of Pakistan to move them to a more responsible course. Walking away from Pakistan is not an option, Romney said.
Obama talked about the surge of troops in Afghanistan, which had helped re-center U.S. efforts in the war on terror. He said it would help prepare U.S. troops for a good exit.
Obama said after a decade of war it’s time to rebuild roads, bridges and schools in the U.S. and take care of veterans. The so-called peace dividend would make that possible.
