In a foreign policy speech Monday, Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney said President Obama is passive in the Middle East and that “it is time to change course” in the region. He made these remarks at the Virginia Military Institute’s Hall of Valor in Lexington, Virginia where he laid out his foreign policy vision. Foreign policy will be the focus of the third and final presidential debate on October 22nd.

Coming off a widely reported success in last week's domestic policy-focused Presidential debate, Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan held rallies in Virginia on Thursday and Friday. The Presidential candidates have a week off before the next debate, which is a town hall format. The final debate, which focuses on foreign policy, will take place October 22.

Romney has previously struggled in the foreign policy arena, with an overseas trip this summer for which he received mixed reviews, and a hasty statement about the recent uprisings in the Middle East, which came shortly before the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
