The third and final debate did come -- its share of tense moments.
And while the candidates did try to lay out their own foreign policy platform sales to trade some jabs about each other stances.
Here's -- more highlights from last night's debates.
President the reason I call an apology tour is because.
You went to the Middle East and you flew to Egypt and it Saudi Arabia and to and to Turkey and Iraq.
And -- and by the way you skipped Israel.
Our closest friend in the region but you -- -- the other nations and by the way they noticed that -- -- district.
And then in those nations and an Arabic TV you said that America had been dismissive and derisive.
You said that occasion America had dictated to other nations.
President America has not dictated to other nations we have freed other nations from dictator.
Nothing the governor Romney just said a stroke.
Starting where this notion of me apologizing to -- this has been.
Probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign -- fact checker and every reporters looked at it.
Governor has -- this is not true.
And when it comes to tightening sanctions.
Look as I said before we've put it.
And the fact is while we were coordinating an international coalition to make -- sanctions were effective.
You were still invested in -- Chinese state oil company that was doing business with -- -- oil sector governor Romney.
Want to take us back to those policies.
Foreign policy that small and reckless.
Economic policies that won't create jobs won't reduce our deficit.
But will make sure that folks -- the very top -- at play by the same rules that you do.
We have an opportunity to have real leadership.
America's gonna have that kind of leadership and continue to promote principles of peace but make a world a safer place and make people in this country more confident.
That their future is secure.
I also want to make sure that we get this economy going.
And with just fourteen days if you can believe it until the election.
This final debate was key for both candidates to win over the voters -- who came out on top here's Charles -- hammers analysis.
I think it's unequivocal Romney won and he didn't just win tactically.
Strategically all he needed to do is basically.
Draw he needed him to continue -- the momentum he's had since the first debate.
And -- we'll continue it.
Tactically he simply had to get out there and show that he's a competent man -- somebody you -- trust his commander in chief a man who knows.
Every area of the globe and here a lot of interest in extra details like that -- network.
Which gave the impression that he knows who what he's talking about.
But there's a third level here and that is what actually happened in the debate.
We cannot give other small points -- -- -- the debating points Romney went a large.
Obama went very very Smart shockingly small.
Brought -- made a strategic decision.
Not to go after the president on Libya or Syria or other areas.
Where -- Obama could accuse him of being a bush -- war monger and I would have gone after.
Obama on Libya -- with a baseball bat but that's why.
Romney as one elections and I never hadn't even contested that he decided to stay away from Adam I think that actually might take -- look for him.
-- -- and concentrate on is the big picture.
People don't care that much about what our policy -- serious going to be.
They care about how America's perceived in the world and how America carries -- -- in the world and the high point of that debate for Romney.
Is when he devastatingly.
Leveled the charge of Obama going around the world on an apology tour.
Obama's answer was ask any reporter and they will tell you it wasn't so.
It's about a week is -- and you can get and Romney's response was to say.
To quote Obama saying that we dictate to other nations and Romney said we do not dictate to other nations we liberate them.
And Obama was utterly speechless Obama so that's -- large picture America strong America respected.
What Obama did -- he kept interrupting interjected.
And his responses were almost all very small and petty attacks.
The lowest was when he's talking about sanctions and -- what I was working on sanctions you're investing.
In a company in China I mean that's that that kind of attack you expect from a guy who's running for city council for the first time.
That's not what you expect from the president.
