At VFW, Obama Defends Foreign Policy Record [VIDEO]
After giving the attacks a break over the weekend in the wake of the Colorado movie theater massacre, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have plunged back into their campaigns.
Speaking to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nev., Obama defended his foreign policy record and took veiled shots at Romney over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, questioning the Republican candidate’s readiness to be commander in chief.

Obama said he’s delivered on his promise to end Iraq “responsibly” and to wind down the Afghan fight, and noted some critics have opposed his Afghan timeline.
Meanwhile, Romney is complaining that the Obama team is offering “almost all attack ads.” In an interview with CNBC, he blames the president for setting the tone.
Romney addresses the VFW on Tuesday before leaving on a three-country foreign trip.
