Why is Romney's lack of foreign policy experience even an issue? Obama had no governing experience at and was elected in 2008. If Obama's track record in general, and specifically his performance in foreign issues should put the nail in his re-election coffin. Obama has done a horrific job with the Middle East. He didn't kill Osama, the SEALS did. He only gave the order to proceed when they verified that they had his location. If America gave Obama a chance with no experience across the board, then certainly Romney , with his experience, deserves a chance too!
