In the final debate for President Obama and Mitt Romney, moderator Bob Schieffer referred to the war in Afghanistan as America's longest war. But America's longest war is actually the war on drugs, which turned 40 last year.
While two American leaders were trying to out-do one another on how well they could manage policy towards the Middle East, a far-away leader was actually leading a shift in that policy.
I cannot believe that some in the media are actually trying to pick up on the Republican talking point about President Obama's statement in the final debate about horses and bayonets, just like they sheepishly picked up the Right's talking point about his "not optimal" comment.
In Monday's debate, both President Obama and Governor Romney agreed that the U.S.'s foreign policy strategies hinged upon domestic economic success. There is no richer potential for economic growth than keeping older adults integrated in the heart of the economy.
