Final Presidential Debate 2012: As the major event of the Presidential Election 2012 approaches on November 6, 2012, both the candidates are armed for the battle. The final and concluding presidential debate of 2012 took place on Monday at the Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.
Both reigning president Barack Obama and Republican hopeful Mitt Romney debated over the important topic of foreign policy. Sensitive issues like the Syria civil war, the expense on defense and Iran’s nuclear program were discussed by the candidates in the final presidential debate.
The 90 minute debate was witnessed by millions around the world, live on national television. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney sat face to face, with moderator Bob Scheiffer in attendance. This time the debate was different from last time’s town hall like encounter – Bob also kept a firm hold on the discussion.
Obama and Romney painted two very different pictures of the political world around them – the former suggested a ‘tightly knit’ and safe world, whereas the latter depicted a threatening and dangerous world.
There was a heated discussion regarding the topics on defense and foreign policy issues; however at one point both the Democrat candidate and the Republican were in conformity. The two candidates stood on the same end when talking about the use of predator drones for attacks in areas like Afghanistan, Israel and Iraq. It was surprising to see Obama and Romney calmly agreeing on one thing because otherwise the presidential debate finale was filled with heated public speaking.
The main question that arose after the event was: who won the presidential debate? The answer surfacing through the internet and social networking is that both Obama and Romney gave in enough effort to win. The third and final debate ended with a similarly confusing vibe for the voters, but it cannot be ignored that after advancing to such a level there is a candidate that each voter will have in mind when casting the vote.
