With a focus on Foreign Policy, everything will be on the table: from the Benghazigate murder of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty & Tyrone Woods; to an Iranian-Chinese Nuclear Smuggling Ring involving the US & Philippines, to the most recent FBI indictment of 10 in conjunction with Russia caught exporting US Missile Tech. One can safely assume, the Obama’s Rules of Engagement for prosecuting the War in Afghanistan will be touched on as well.
Most could be surprised when the economy is debated, especially since America’s lack of producing its own energy (see the Gulf Coast moratorium) has led to both parties saying “our dependency on foreign energy only helps finance countries who don’t like the U.S. very much.” With Obama “investing” $90 Billion dollars of tax payer money into the whims of his favored Green Energy failures—while at the same time sending billions to Brazil for off-shore drilling—expect Mitt Romney to capitalize on the administration’s poor excuse for halting both the Keystone XL project & its resulting high-paying jobs. For which the Construction Unions are not happy with the Obama Plan.
