    I said no, only because I think he boned himself over his entire presidency. His involvement (or lack thereof) with the Libya scandal is serious and very bad on his record, but I don't think in itself lost him the election. It's still going to be a close race, but I think Romney will win.

    I can answer that. He was giving America the impression of foreign policy success in the middle east, and the defeat of Al Queda and/or the Taliban. Having a terrorist attack on a US embassy and recognizing it as such proves his foreign policy failed and basically ruins all the ground he made regarding this in his political image.

    So just one terrorist attack makes his entire foreign policy a failure? Cause if that's what you're suggesting, it's nuts.

    Also, regarding your comment about Al Qaeda and the Taliban, the investigation appears to still be ongoing. It's not yet known if the terrorist attack was conducted by either (and if geography has any influence, it's unlikely to be the Taliban)..

    Do you know who conducted the attacks? If so, how do you know?

    It's not just that. I'm not completely educated on the Iran matter, but I don't think Obama is doing anything, has done anything, or will do anything about their nuclear program until it's too late. He's had a trend of being soft with other countries when it comes to his foreign policy. The whole video apology lie is a great example of that. We shouldn't apologize for something that is our right, however screwed up the video may have been.

    Exactly.

    Obama hasn't sent troops into Iran even though Netanyahu has instructed him to.
