"Romney definitely has the facts correct with a clear and (US) Constitutional vision and view for these United States. A strong foreign policy is as important as domestic policy. A re-election of the president will result in regional, at the least, war in the middle east. It may go much farther than that. Look at the last four years and see if this ship of state is sailing in the direction of peace, stability and prosperity. Mitt Romney showed knowledge, leadership and vision for the above," Mike Williams wrote.

Monday was the last appearance on stage together for Obama and Romney before the Nov. 6 election.
