Many analysts say President Obama may have been able to claim the -- in foreign policy issues.
At least before last -- attack and in Gaza which left our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans did.
Now we're seeing how the Obama administration's response to the attack may have changed some voters' mind as we reported earlier in this hour.
You Fox -- post of president Obama's lead over governor Romney narrowing in the battleground states of Ohio and Florida when it comes to those those voters who trust.
Him to handle foreign policy -- -- now retired general Wesley Clark national security advisor for the Obama campaign.
General ran for president himself on the democratic side back in 2003 it's great to see you again -- here.
But if you were advising him tonight and you've done such things before.
How would you suggest to the president that he should fight back against these that they -- these attacks regarding the attack in the Gaza.
First -- -- Jeff -- the big picture of this.
Personal bombers and commander in chief and had a very successful foreign policy we're out of Iraq it's possible plan premiums would have been in Gaza.
I think you have to put the whole foreign policy and respect I know that that's what you'll want to do but he's -- another part of -- -- -- not gonna wanna let him do anything but we'll look.
This debate tonight is about governor Romney's lack of credibility in foreign affairs but what.
He's going to do skis and had a -- -- but -- Natalee deserves the point that I believe that governor Romney may go with and I was wondering what.
Your advice to the president would be when governor Romney says.
You said Susan Rice out or somebody did to the five shows and said that this was about a video.
They continued to say it's about a video when we now know that intelligence knew better -- what is what was his strategy be.
To get past that.
I think the strategy is to look at the big picture we're just ignore that at the governor's island today and all the point is that that we've got one man who's been successful commander in chief got together.
Who has no experience in foreign policy in fact his last.
Foray abroad -- still kind of a disaster.
Public affairs lies in Britain and Israel and even in -- look.
So governor Romney hasn't.
Shown that he can handle the responsibilities of balancing foreign domestic policies saying that's what the president I try to focus on exactly what if he does that the president tries to focus on that governor Romney comes back and says -- I'm -- -- -- that foreign policy but I also didn't go on a campaign trip the day after our ambassador got killed.
And said that it was something that it wasn't so how would you attack that particular part of what's your own terms don't know what happens there.
I keep -- -- very clear.
The facts are still being unravel well what we know from the -- know this is a terrorist attack takes a walk out it's it it takes a while but intelligent -- -- -- Condit win win win win Susan Rice was out telling us.
It is about something else and actually they didn't.
Did best information that we got is that it wasn't home she went right off the talking points are clean and intelligent let's just not true because bush didn't -- -- that's the that's the end.
You may have won intelligence report.
But that's war intelligence and what you actually think that's the evidence that the guy I don't especially ever so I think that's I don't think that's that's Vietnam responding -- you -- I think what's there to breaking it down a level I think the president needs to talk about the big picture of any American vote.
Who would be swayed by an attack on the Ben Ghazi.
Embassy -- tragic as it was us into changing his view of American foreign policy and Brock from front Obama's success.
-- that's just not that that's just not.
-- the right measure called for years.
The president has been right on Iraqis and right on Afghanistan and got rid of Osama bin Laden.
Nobody cares more about the security the American people -- those embassies that Barack Obama does and he shown it repeatedly.
So this is an effort by a man who.
Doesn't have any experience and a party that wants to pretend it's the roughest toughest guys on the block.
To try to seize the advantage from mind.
From an episode.
That is as regrettable it is it is it's not the right major.
When comparing foreign policy the truth is that Barack Obama has been very robust on foreign policy and in contrast.
Governor Romney's never come up with a policy -- any different from anything Obama said on Afghanistan at one point he said let's get out right away -- points of let's stay -- On Iraq he couldn't make up his mind.
So I'm gonna ask that the -- -- about those specific things rather time right now I appreciate you.
We had three and a half minutes we took four let history revisionist -- well thank you.
