It took an hour for President Obama to bring up the killing of Osama bin Laden in the third presidential debate. Mitt got to it first! But when Obama got to the topic, he chided Mitt Romney for his position on the matter in 2004, recalling that Romney said, “We shouldn’t move heaven and earth to get one man.
“Horses and bayonets”: An undeniably awesome band name idea, and Obama’s best zinger in the first half of the presidential debate on foreign policy. Romney blasted Obama for cutting military funding by $1 trillion, saying the Navy needs more ships, the Air Force needs newer and more planes, and the country can no longer afford to two conflicts.
The third presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney began with a feisty spat over strategy in the Middle East. Romney accused Obama of making no progress in the area, saying, “We can’t kill our way out of this mess.
(10:31) Nevermind on the debate call. Obamney wins. (10:27) The theme of this evening: disappointment.I remember naively supporting Obama in 2008 because I hoped he cared about civil liberties and thought for the future. What we saw tonight was a conservative Democrat who fights to preserve the economy of the 20th century, a bipartisan consensus in favor of a foreign policy that endangers the America we love, and a Republican who could criticize the President but can't seem to figure out a way forward.
If it were up to America's youth, President Obama would be re-elected by a landslide. 65 percent of the 520,000 kids who participated in Nickelodeon's "Kids Pick the President" election cast their online ballots for Obama.
At least Todd Akin and his staff are on the same page. The Senate hopeful's comparison of incumbent opponent Claire McCaskill to a dog this weekend elicited gasps from the media and public alike. (Akin said McCaskill goes to Washington to "fetch.

Google, Google, on the Internet, who is the fairest politician of them all? The New York Times has some startling search engine statistics, specifically when it comes to the fruits of vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s workout regimen.
No doubt practicing for tonight’s debate, the Obama campaign has released a new ad focused on the president’s foreign policy achievements. “A decade of war that cost us dearly,” the ad says. “And now for president, a clear choice: President Obama ended the Iraq war.
Will it be enough? President Barack Obama holds a 5-point lead on Mitt Romney in Ohio according to a new Quinnipiac University/CBS News poll. The Obama campaign is waging a defensive ground war in the battleground state, which may prove an Electoral College bulwark against Romney’s chances at the White House.
If Mitt does what the president did in the first debate—just show up—he might scrape by. The Republican nominee’s advisers say a low bar is set for Romney as they prepare for the third presidential debate, which will focus on foreign policy.
We, the people. Throughout our history, we’ve expanded the meaning of our nation’s founding phrase, to include more and more of our citizens because we believe that the American dream isn’t about any one person or segment of society.
We’ve been at war with al Qaeda for at least 11 years and still don’t know how to have an effective political or, more important, strategic conversation about it. In the five weeks since the Benghazi attack, we’ve spent far more time arguing about what to call it than discussing its implications.
Proof that Mitt Romney suffers from double Romnesia comes with an easy-to-miss detail that he insisted on in his official portrait from his one term as governor of Massachusetts.At first, the 52- by 37-inch oil painting seems distinct from the portraits of the commonwealth’s other governors, mainly in the inclusion of a picture within a picture of his wife, something not done by any of his 69 predecessors.
