Both Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack and Dr. Raul Ruiz offered their thoughts up on Monday's final presidential debate, siding with their political parties.
Ruiz said the debate highlighted foreign policies of the past that the nation should avoid-- along with tiresome political games.
"Last night's debate showed what is really at stake in this election-- we can return to the failed policies of the past or we can move forward as a nation," Ruiz said. "I believe that people are sick and tired of political games. By ending the war in Iraq and bringing our troops back, we can do some nation building where we need it most, right here at home."
Bono Mack, on the other hand, says we need to return to a past position of "world leadership," with the help of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
"The debate on foreign policy was a clear victory for Governor Mitt Romney – he showed a mastery of international affairs and laid out a set of policies that will return America to world leadership in maintaining peace and promoting prosperity at home and abroad.
“President Obama clearly did not want to debate a foreign policy that has left America weaker in the eyes of many of our allies and enemies. He did not articulate a plan of how our nation can regain the leadership he has allowed to slip during the past four years.”
