Wayne State University students weighed in on the final presidential debate over foreign policy and the candidates’ positions in the days following it.
Failing to mention the Euro crisis kept Americans from seeing each candidate’s knowledge of the crisis and general stance on the issue, senior political science student Alexander Kappaz said.
“I was extremely disappointed that any of the debates failed to mention the Euro crisis. Romney insists on comparing America to countries like Spain and Greece. I find this perplexing because the crisis in Spain was caused by sovereign debt and currency which is not analogous to the economic situations in Greece. So either Romney is economically illiterate, or being incredibly disingenuous on purpose to hammer home a fear-mongering talking point,” Kappaz said. “It would have been interesting to see Obama’s response to the crisis and I would have liked to see at least one of the candidates articulate why these situations are different.”
While some students felt that the absence of certain topics were detrimental to the debate, others did not.
