I think if Obama is smart he'll be on the attack as well. However, I do agree that Romney has the bigger need to swing independents like myself. He'll really have to expose the PResident for some of his short falls and that debate starts with foreign policy, whihc our media is not reporting. Ergo, it's not a big campaign issue. This election has been much more focused on domestic policy. Which honestly, neither candidate, is going to be able to change much. Economically I think Romney would be the better choice in terms of confidence. I think Obama is the better choice from a foreign policy perspective, and his, while on the surface seems good....is not that good at all.
Obama is a weak President overall, but he still might be a better choice than Romney.
