Obama and Romney Sidestep National Security in Second Debate

Will have to answer at next one

|

President Obama and GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney largely avoided defense and national security issues in their second presidential debate, setting the stage for the third and final face-off between the candidates next week. 

While Tuesday night's town-hall-style debate was billed as a mix of domestic and foreign policy issues, Obama and Romney spent most of the hour-and-a-half exchange aggressively attacking each others' positions on the economy, healthcare, immigration and energy issues.
