President Obama and Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney went into their third and final debate in Boca Raton, Florida, with the topic focusing on foreign policy. During the debate, we saw a vast difference between candidates.

The 90 minute debate, was far different than the last one — there was no boxing ring type back and forth, still yet, Obama corrected Romney when the Republican candidate got etch-a-sketchy, reminding him of his previous remarks.

Moderator: What do each of you seek as our role in the world:

Romney: “Promoting the principles that which include human rights. In order to fulfill our role in the world, America must lead.”

I recall this:

New York Times reporter Charlie Savage unearthed an internal Romney campaign memo advising the candidate to bring back Bush-era “enhanced interrogation techniques” if elected… it recommends a President Romney “pledge” to “rescind President Obama’s executive order restricting government interrogators” from torturing detainees.”

Be back soon. We’re still watching the debate.
