Embassy attacks hits center stage in presidential politics

The events of the last week have thrust foreign policy into the spotlight of the presidential election. So could this become the new big issue of the year?

OutFront tonight: Democratic Strategist Jonathan Prince and Richard Grenell who briefly served as foreign policy spokesman for Mitt Romney.

    When you have two jokers like this on your show, who continue to talk, talk, talk on top of one another, intelligent viewers simply tune out and neither one gets a point across. But more importantly, if you don't step in and stop it immediately, OutFront becomes the big loser because you lose the viewers you really need to keep.

    Great job moderating as always, Erin - we need contributors with more facts and substance and less pointless anger. I am an independent and think appearances like Richard Grenell don't bring any substantial contribution. We need more David Gergens on air. Still, I love that you did not get sucked into the angry arguing...

    This is painful & petty to watch. This is why there's not a lot of great young talent going into public service, because this is what the public discourse has been reduced to. Who needs this kind of mutual vitriol? I can see why Gov. Bayh took off.
