Obama, Romney battle over Iran: Capability vs. Having a nuclear bomb

Both President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney say Iran will not get a nuclear weapon under their watch but who has a better approach to dealing with the rogue nation? After last night's debate, its difficult to tell the difference between the candidates.

"I laid out seven steps. Crippling sanctions were number one. And they do work. And you're seeing it right now in the economy. It is absolutely the right thing to do to have crippling sanctions. I'd have put them in place earlier but it is good that we have them," said Romney.

President Obama fired back with an attack on what Romney's approach to Iran was earlier in the campaign season. "I'm glad Governor Romney agrees with the steps we're taking. There have been times during the course of this campaign where it sounded like you thought that you do the same things we did, but you'd say them louder. Somehow that would make a difference," said Obama.

President Obama says economic sanctions are crippling Iran's economy and oil exports are at a 20 year low and Governor Romney says we are four years closer to a nuclear Iran under the current administration.
