Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight that -- special pre debate edition of the factor the last showdown and that is a subject of this evening's talking points memo.
Tonight's farm policy debate in Boca Raton Florida will once again feature two very different philosophies.
Pres Obama won the election last time.
By repudiating American power as the big stick in the world.
Obama believes that the foreign policy decisions made by the bush Cheney administration.
Because they alienated many countries that could have helped us.
Barack Obama was a fierce opponent of the Iraq War.
And in 2008 presented himself to the world.
As a man who would seek consensus.
Rather than a president who would do whatever the heck he wanted to do.
That foreign policy appeal to many Americans who were tired of seeing complicated situations like Iraq and Afghanistan drag on and on an -- Mr.
Obama also went out of his way to tell the world.
That the USA would no longer take the lead in world controversies instead we would work with other nations to solve problems we saw that Libya.
As NATO led the way and -- get off.
But now many including governor Romney believe.
That president Obama's foreign policy.
Has weakened America and emboldened.
-- says that Iran Egypt the Taliban and others no longer fear us.
Therefore Americans are in far greater danger than they work when President Bush was in power.
In -- governor Romney believes in the big stick when necessary.
That is -- crux of tonight's debate whether America is an exceptional country that has a moral right to leave the world.
Whether we our country no more entitled than anyone else.
Drowning is a huge advantage tonight because in Libya business I don't know about you but I am sick and tired of hearing about it.
President Obama closed the American people we the people.
A press conference he owes it to us to explain what the hell happened -- over there.
And why security was not what it should have be it.
This point I don't want to hear any more excuses I don't wanna see any more finger point.
Just want to know the facts from the president's own now.
Obama is in charge of foreign policy again he must told a press conference and explain the -- the bop.
If Romney demands that tonight and doesn't get mired down in details they can't be prove -- he'll win -- -- It has now been a month -- matches for Americans -- murdered in Libya and we the people have not been told what happened.
That's not the way a free society is supposed to work.
Violated -- tonight is vital for both candidates according to the polls governor Romney is momentum almost everywhere and if he decisively wins tonight.
He is likely to be the next president of the United States President Obama knows that so he must count Iran.
And emerges a wiser man on foreign policy.
That is mr.
Obama's challenge which he will undergo.
In less than an hour from now.
And that -- them and stuff.
