With the final debate on the 22nd being on foreign policy, how can Romney possibly win that debate?
Obama has been a Commander in Chief, and close ties to the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State over the last 4 years.

It is always harder when you havent been pivy to all the information that is classified and what not. So no matter who it was, its not an easy debate to win going against the incumbent on foreign policy. But then again, its not always easy in other debates either, but Romney won one big and virtual tie last night though he led on key issues.

Romney will be ready to debate with the information he can gather. Obama has not been perfect on foreign policy and there is plenty to bring up

The problem is that Romney butchered the Benghazi issue and turned it into a "how dare you" moment for Obama and the Democrats. Now it seems to be a third rail and I bet he doesn't go near it, meanwhile there are still questions to be answered on it.

Its true he veered off where he should of went on Libya. But do you think he is not going to be ready to take it on during the last debate? Foreign policy being the main topic, he is open to focusing on that while he prepares and will be ready to bring up all the inconsistencies and ignoring of warnings. Obama dodged that question last night but he wont get away with dodging it on Monday.

I admitted to the incumbent has the upper hand just because he's been in office and has information no one else has. But there is still plenty to go after Obama on. Judging from Obama's performance so far in debates, its not even close to slam dunk for Obama.
