Romney: We Can’t Kill Our Way Out of This Mess

Moderator Bob Schieffer went straight to the hot-button issue of the Libya attack on the consulate to kick off the 3rd presidential debate tonigh.

Romney spoke first, and, after congratulating the president for killing Osama bin Laden, led with this clearly preprepared zinger:

“We can’t kill our way out of this mess.”

Obama argued that the U.S. achieved goals in Libya and spent “less than what is spent in Iraq in two weeks.”

Romney also said, “My strategy is to go after the bad guys.”

Obama later said, “The 1980s called, they want their foreign policy back” and dug into the challenger, saying he knows Romney has never had a chance to wield foreign policy but that all his ideas have been wrong.
