During the third presidential debateon Monday, President Obama did not lose a single opportunity to fire back at his opponent Mitt Romney. At one point in the debate Obama mocked Romney when he said that al Qaeda and other terrorist groups are ‘rushing in’ as revolutions shake up the Muslim world.
“Gov. Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that al Qaeda is a threat,”Obama said, “because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia.”
“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War's been over for 20 years,”Obama said.
President Obama’s criticism of Romney’s foreign policy standards did not end here. “Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s, and the economic policies of the 1920s,” Obama said.
For many observers it was the comeback of President Obama after his lackluster performance in the first presidential debate.
