Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama will square off at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida to discuss their strategies to guard our nation for the future. It’s sure to bring the house down.

Obama should only have to say four words during this final debate, because everything else is irrelevant: “I killed Bin Laden.” But unfortunately, it won’t be that easy.

Here’s the thing, foreign policy is foreign to us because for the most part, Americans really don’t care what’s going on in other parts of the world. However, for election purposes, the candidates have to discuss America’s place within the world.

But isn’t this final debate a little bit one-sided? If you think about it, Obama will talk about his foreign policy achievements, while Romney will talk about what he will do if elected president.

When it comes to the Libyan Benghazi attack, Obama already won that round: “Get the transcript.”

On terrorism, well, does anyone remember SEAL Team Six? How does Romney expect to win this one?

Either way, it’s sure to be another fiery debate. All Obama has to do is mention his foreign policy achievements and he should coast.

But if by some chance you don’t remember, here’s a reminder of what Obama’s already accomplished across the world.


Number one with a bullet literally has to be the mission to get al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. 

Obama gave the authorization to raid Bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May of 2011.

The elite Navy SEAL Team Six fighters carried out the mission: raiding Bin Laden’s compound, killing him and dumping his body in the sea.

Another tip of the cap goes to Obama, after U.S. and Pakistani forces also killed al-Qaeda’s number two leader, Atiyah abd al-Rahman, during a missile strike in the tribal region of Wazinstan, Pakistan.


The Iraq War ended on Obama’s watch when he withdrew all combat troops. President Obama and his National Defense personnel were able to implement this promise, as more than 90,000 combat troops were withdrawn out of Iraq in August 2011.



People have forgotten Haiti, but under Obama’s watch, America pledged $712 million to supplement the devastation from the 2010 earthquake in aid.

The United States leads in donations when it comes to Haitian relief.


Obama intervened as Libyans protested to oust dictator Muammar Gaddafi. It was a good look for the President, as Libya became free of Gaddafi’s 40-year dictatorial rule.

The NATO airstrike confirmed Gaddafi’s demise. Osama and Gaddafi were two big foreign policy points for Obama.


A theme we will hear from Obama tonight will no doubt be an end to the war in Afghanistan, as troops will be withdrawn in 2013.

The U.S. and other international forces in Afghanistan will end their combat role in 2013 and continue a training and advisory role with Afghan forces through 2014, and al-Qaeda leadership is diminishing everyday.
