DEBATE QUOTE: Obama -- "When I Came Into Office, the World Was Divided"
In Monday night’s final presidential debate at Lynn University, Barack Obama reacted to Mitt Romney saying that the president went on an “apology tour.” President Obama said, “Nothing Governor Romney just said is true, starting with this notion of me apologizing. This has been probably the biggest whopper that has been told during the course of this campaign.”
Obama hit back at Romney,
“We’ve put in the toughest, most crippling sanctions ever. And the fact is, while we were coordinating an international coalition to make sure these sanctions were effective, you were still invested in a Chinese state oil company that was doing business with the Iranian oil sector.”
On Iran, Obama said, “When I came into office, the world was divided. […] Iran is at its weakest point economically, strategically, militarily.”
