SOTU Snapshot

By State of the Union Intern Alex Kaplan

There is no shortage of stories dominating the news this week, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning? These are some of the stories we are looking at this week.

Obama & Romney clash on foreign policy. President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney expressed their differing ideals about America’s foreign policy on Tuesday in Florida. Romney criticized the president for a lack of leadership and “apologizing” for America, while Obama slammed Romney for having inconsistent foreign policy positions and his support for increased defense spending. For much of the debate, however, Romney seemed to agree with Obama’s positions, including withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan in 2014 and applying harsh sanctions onto Iran to stop their supposed nuclear program. A CNN instant poll taken after the debate had Obama winning the debate by a small margin, 48 percent to 40 percent.
