President Obama returns to the University of Miami for his third visit Thursday, but this time there's a new twist.
After a lackluster debate last week, Obama's campaign is looking wobbly for the first time in months.
And he's getting attacked at what used to be a strong point: Foreign policy. House Republicans Wednesday held a special hearing into the terrorist attacks on a U.S. consulate in Libya on Sept. 11, when four diplomatic staffers were killed.
Amid the four grueling hours of testimony, Obama Administration officials admitted they refused to beef up security before the attacks, and they made misleading statements about what probably caused the attacks.
Obama has steered clear of Libya in his standard stump speech, which more often includes his foreign-policy successes.
"Al Qaeda is on its heels and Osama bin Laden is no more," Obama said Monday in a speech.
After today’s UM event, he’ll head to a JW Marriott Marquis fundraiser with his campaign’s national co-chair, actress Eva Longoria.
Obama has also stepped up his attacks on Republican Mitt Romney’s veracity, saying his opponent is “hiding” his record.
Democrats have also tried to portray the House Oversight and Government Reform committee hearings Wednesday as a political show, noting that a lead lawmaker Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, is a Romney surrogate.
Romney has been surging in national polls after winning last week’s debates. Romney’s improved national standing will likely be mirrored in polls in Florida, a must-win battleground state for Romney that reflects the nation. Until last week, Obama was nursing an inside-the-error margin lead over Romney in Florida and nationwide.
