NEW YORK-Former presidential candidate Howard Dean [Unlink]
(Democrats) finds it "ridiculous" that the attack on the consulate of the U.S. in Libya so far has played an important role in every presidential debates. "This issue shows how much the debate on foreign policy has been downgraded," he says in an interview with NU.nl. "The attack in Benghazi is a tragedy, it is really ridiculous that this is a political issue is made," said Dean. Dean, former governor of Vermont and Skadi presidential candidate for the Democrats in 2004 (he lost in the first round of John Kerry), finds it inappropriate that Libya has taken a prominent place in the presidential debates. Nevertheless, it is expected that the subject in the last debate between Barack Obama [Unlink]
and Mitt Romney [Unlink]
once again will be discussed. The last debate takes place Monday evening local time in Florida and there will only be spoken about foreign policy. It is common for any election in the United States, an issue arises in the campaigns where previously not been counted. This year dominates the issue Libya debate. In the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans were killed, including the Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Weakness The attack in Libya gave Romney is a chance for his opponent to attack. The Republican was prior to his performance in the first debate in Denver with Obama never seen as an expert in the field of foreign affairs. According to Romney, the U.S. government, led by President Obama, far too long to be labeled the attack as a terrorist attack premeditated. It showed Obama that he had no strong leadership skills and the U.S. thus a weaker position had occupied in the world. Both the vicepresidentiële debate between Democrat Joe Biden [Unlink]
and Republican Paul Ryan [Unlink]
came to raise the issue, as in the second debate between Obama and Romney. As the incumbent president pointed out that his opponent was a despicable attack in which Americans were killed for political purposes. Responsibility According to Tom Ridge [Unlink]
, Republican politician and prominent supporter of the Romney campaign, the issue is indeed politically, he said after the debate in Hempstead. "The President and the Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton, ed) have the first days after the attack on terror never had," said Ridge against NU.nl. "I do not know what's worse, the fact that the President is indeed not immediately knew that it was a terrorist attack was, or that he knew and not the American people wanted to share. It is his responsibility to this type of business on be aware. And that makes it so definitely a political issue, "said Ridge. Superpower Dean thinks Republicans Obama attacks on the Libyan issue because the party the president continued in any other foreign matter can criticize. Dean: "The fact that Osama bin Laden under Obama's leadership is caught and slain gives the President a degree of immunity.'s Why the Republicans continue to Benghazi." "Our position in the world is much better than eight years ago (under the leadership of then-President Bush Jr., ed)," added Dean. "Obama's greatest merit is that he has not approached the world as a superpower. He always has the cooperation and dialogue with other countries sought." Europe Republican Ridge is precisely that attitude a character weakness. Ridge: "Believe me, in bowl regularly in Europe and I get there remains the question of what happens to us is wrong, and why we do not take the lead. It is expected of us." The third and final presidential debate between Obama and Romney takes place Monday evening local time in Boca Raton in Florida. It is expected that in addition to the attack in Benghazi also will talk about the civil war in Syria, the nuclear threat from Iran and the dominant economic position of China.
