President Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, squared off in their final debate on Monday night, just over two weeks before Election Day. The third in the series of Presidential debates focused on foreign policy from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.
FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz and Jared Halpern report from Lynn University in this election update:
From America's Election Headquarters, I'm Mike Majchrowitz at Lynn University.
(Romney) "I thought it should be more troops... but the answer was we've got no..."
(Obama) "...This was just a few weeks ago."
Another assertive performance from the President. On Governor Romney's policies:
(Obama) "The 1980's are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back."
On Governor Romney's complaint that the U.S. Navy has been shrunk to World War I levels:
(Obama) "Well Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets."
And a bold prediction about the sequester that would cut the military even more.
(Obama) "The sequester is not something that I proposed. It's something that Congress proposed. It will not happen."
A campaign aide clarifying later that the sequester is something all agree should not happen.
For Mitt Romney, he stuck to the script, trying to paint the President as all style and no substance.
(Romney) "Attacking me is not an agenda."
And while praising the President for successes, like ordering the raid on Usama bin Laden and other high profile targets, Romney adds:
(Romney) "But we can't kill our way out of this mess. We're gonna have to put forward a very comprehensive and robust strategy."
Romney also pivoting to the economy, linking financial security with national security.
