Obama to Take On Anti-Americanism

President Obama will take the stage before the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday and make the declaration that the U.S. plans to stand firm in the face of anti-Americanism across the globe and assert its determination to keep Iran's nuclear ambitions at bay. While the election is clearly looming in the background of virtually anything the president does, Obama plans to keep his Republican opponent out of today's discussion at the U.N. That hasn't stopped Mitt Romney from criticizing the incumbent's foreign-policy leadership ahead of his big speech. "This is time for a president who will shape events in the Middle East, not just be merciful or be at the mercy of the events," Romney said Monday.
