TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" DEBATE

NO. 2, A LOOK AHEAD AT THE TOWN

HALL-STYLE SHOW DOWN BETWEEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE

CHALLENGER, MITT ROMNEY.

PLUS TAKING RESPONSIBILITY.

SECRETARY OF STATE HILARY

CLINTON SPEAKS OUT ON THE LIBYA

CONSULATE ATTACK.

AND A RISING STAR IN ISRAELI

POLITICS, EXCLUSIVE WITH DANNY

NON DANON.

HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM LEE

WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

WE ARE EXACTLY THREE WEEKS FROM

ELECTION DAY.

MITT ROMNEY LOOKING TO KEEP

HIS EDGE WHILE PRESIDENT OBAMA

HOPES TO REBOUND AFTER HIS LAST

DEBATE PERFORMANCE.

AS MARK MARTIN EXPLAINS, THIS

TIME THEY TAKE ON A TOWN HALL

FORMAT ANSWERING QUESTIONS FROM

UNDECIDED VOTERS.

PRESSURE IS ON PRESIDENT

OBAMA TO STEP UP WITH A STRONG

PERFORMANCE TONIGHT.

A NEW USA GALLOP SHOWS MITT

ROMNEY LEADING PRESIDENT OBAMA

FOUR POINTS.

MOVEMENT AMONG WOMEN TOWARD

ROMNEY IN THE BATTLEGROUND

STATES.

THE AUDIENCE MEMBERS ARE

UNDECIDED VOTERS, PRESELECTED BY

THE MODERATOR.

DEMOCRATS HOPE THE PRESIDENT CAN

REGAIN HIS FOOTING AFTER A POOR

PERFORMANCE HE WAS WIDELY

CRITICIZED.

I THINK HE IS GOING EXPLAIN

WHERE WE ARE GOING AS A COUNTRY.

ROB PORTMAN IS OPTIMISTIC

ABOUT ROMNEY'S CHANCES.

IT IS A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE

WHEN YOU HAVE CITIZENS ASKING

YOU QUESTIONS RATHER THAN

PROFESSIONAL JOURNALIST.

WITH JUST THREE WEEKS TO GO

IT IS CRITICAL.

LAST TWO DEBATES ARE GREAT

OPPORTUNITIES FOR BOTH

CANDIDATES KNOWN TO THAT GROUP

AND THE AMERICAN PUBLIC AS A

WHOLE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

THANKS, MARK.

DAVID BRODY WILL BE AT THE

DEBATE TONIGHT.

HE SAYS THE FORMAT COULD BE A

CHALLENGE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

SO IT IS HARD FOR LET'S SAY,

BOBBY IN THE AUDIENCE TO ASK

PRESIDENT OBAMA A QUESTION AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS BOBBY, I AM

GOING TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION IN

A MOMENT, LET ME ADDRESS

GOVERNOR ROMNEY.

IT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO GO

AFTER ANOTHER CANDIDATE.

THAT IS GOING TO BE THE

CHALLENGE.

THE BAR IS HIGHER FOR MITT

ROMNEY.

ROMNEY'S MAIN CHALLENGE WITH A

TOWN HALL STYLE DEBATE WILL BE

CONNECTING WITH AND RELATING

WITH PEOPLE ONE ON ONE.

IS CBNNEWS.COM.

FOR DAVID'S LATEST POLITICAL

COVERAGE, YOU CAN CHECK OUT "THE

BRODY FILE" TV IT AIRS 9:30 A.M.

EVERY FRIDAY ON ABC FAMILY.

A GALLOP POLL SHOWS MITT

ROMNEY LEADS PRESIDENT OBAMA BY

FOUR PERCENTAGE POINTS.

ROMNEY HAS PULLED WITHIN ONE

POINT, 48-49%.

ROMNEY HAS HIS FIRST DEBATE

PERFORMANCE TO THANK FOR THE

CHANGE.

WOMEN ARE SEEN AS THE SWING

VOTERS.

BOTH CANDIDATES ARE EXPECTED TO

RAMP UP THEIR ADS DURING THE

FINAL 21 DAYS.

WE ARE JOINED BY HADLY HEATH,

SHE IS A SENIOR INDEPENDENT

ANALYST.

SO MANY HAVE PORTRAYED ROMNEY AS

AGAINST WOMEN.

WHAT IS BEHIND THE RISE AND

SUPPORT OF WOMEN VOTERS?

WHAT IS FUNNY, WE

CONTINUOUSLY HEAR TALK ABOUT THE

WOMEN'S VOTE IN 2012.

WOMEN ARE VERY DIVERSE.

WE ARE NOT A VOTING BLOCK.

WE ARE ABOUT HALF OF THE

POPULATION.

WE SEE WOMEN DIVIDED BETWEEN THE

TWO CANDIDATES.

WE DON'T LIKE TO HEAR OR TALK

ABOUT MEN AND WOMEN'S INTERESTS

BEING PITTED AGAINST EACH OTHER.

WE WANT A UNIFIED MESSAGE ABOUT

WHO CAN TAKE AMERICA'S ECONOMY

WHERE IT SHOULD BE.

WOMEN ARE READY TO LISTEN TO A

CANDIDATE, ROMNEY WHO THEY SAW

NEGATIVELY PORTRAYED.

DO YOU THINK MUCH WILL BE

MADE ON THE SO-CALLED WAR ON

WOMEN?

IT IS TOO BAD, THE WAR ON

WOMEN IS A TACTIC USED BY PEOPLE

FROM THE LEFT.

WE LIKE MEN ARE INTERESTED IN

STRENGTHENING AMERICA'S ECONOMY.

LAST QUARTER, THE ECONOMY GREW

AT 1.3 PERCENT.

THAT IS A WOMENS ISSUE JUST LIKE

IT IS A MEN'S ISSUE.

NOW THAT WOMEN ARE FOCUSSED ON

THE ECONOMY PWE WANT TO HEAR THE

CANDIDATE'S PLANS INSTEAD OF

BIRTH CONTROL, ETC. U. IN NEW

HADLEY, HOW DO YOU THINK

ROMNEY'S FIRST DEBATE

PERFORMANCE HELPED HIM IN THE

EYES OF VOTERS?

WE SAW MORE OF A GENERAL MAN

THAN THE CARICATURE.

HE WAS PORTRAYED AS RICH AND

ROBOTIC AND OUT OF TOUCH.

HE WAS ABLE TO TALK TO WOMEN

SITTING AT HOME ON THEIR

COUCHES.

HE CAME OFF WITH SOMEONE THAT

CARES DEEPLY FOR THE FUTURE OF

THIS COUNTRY AND REAL AND

GENUINE.

THAT PERFORMANCE WAS EXCELLENCE.

I FELT THAT AFTER THE VICE

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE, WE SAW

UNDECIDED WOMEN FAVOR THE

ROMNEY-RYAN TICKET.

WHAT DOES ROMNEY NEED TO DO

TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM?

THERE IS NO ONE WAY TO SPEAK

TO WOMENS, WE ARE GOING TO THINK

WITH OUR OWN MINDS.

DON'T TALK TO US LIKE THE LEFT

DOES TELLING US WHAT WE CARE

ABOUT.

LEAVE IT UP TO US.

HADLEY HEATH, THANKS FOR

BEING WITH US.

THANK YOU.

MOST CHRISTIAN PASTORS

SUPPORT MITT ROMNEY FOR

PRESIDENT, LIFE WAY SAYS THEY

FAVOR THE REPUBLICAN BY 3-1

MARGIN.

57 PERCENT WILL VOTE FOR ROMNEY

AND 17 PERCENT FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

82 PERCENT SAID MORMON FAITH

DOESN'T AFFECT THEIR VOTE.

MISSOURI REPUBLICAN TODD AKIN

MAYBE STAGING A COME BACK

AGAINST CLAIRE MCCASKILL.

SHOWS AKIN LEADING, HE IS AT 49

PERCENT, 4 POINTS AHEAD OF

MCCASKILL.

HE MADE CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS

ON RAPE AND ABORTION.

REPUBLICANS CALLED ON HIM TO

STEP OUT OF THE RACE.

OTHER POLLS SHOW MCCASKILL STILL

LEADING.

RISING SUPPORT FOR AKIN.

SECRETARY OF STATE HILARY

CLINTON IS DEFENDING THE WHITE

HOUSE AGAINST ACCUSATIONS IT

DIDN'T DO ENOUGH TO PROTECT THE

U.S. CONS LAT CONSULATE IN

LIBYA.

SHE SAYS IT IS HER FAULT.

REPORTER: CLINTON HAS DECIDED

TO TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM THAT IT

IS HER FAULT FOR THE CONSULATE

IN LIBYA.

INSURING THE SAFETY OF U.S.

DIPLOMATIC OVERSEAS IS HER JOB.

NOT THE WHITE HOUSE.

I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.

I AM CHARGE OF THE STATE

DEPARTMENT, 60 PLUS THOUSAND

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT

CERTAINLY WOULDN'T BE

KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT SPECIFIC

DECISIONS MADE BY SECURITY

OFFICIALS.

REPUBLICANS FIRED BACK.

JOHN MCCAIN AND TWO OTHER

MEMBERS RELEASED A STATEMENT

SAYING: "THE SECURITY OF OUR

AMERICANS EVERYWHERE IN THE

WORLD IS ULTIMATELY THE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF, THE BUCK

STOPS THERE."

CONGRESS HEARD TESTIMONY THAT

THE STATE DEPARTMENT WAS AWARE

OF AND REJECTED SEVERAL REQUESTS

FOR EXTRA SECURITY.

WE HAVE LONG KNOWN EXTREMISTS

HAVE COME OUT OF LIBYA.

WE UNDERSTOOD THERE WOULD BE AN

EFFORT TO RE-ESTABLISH A

PRESENCE OF EXTREMIST BASIS AND

OPERATIONS.

SO IT WAS SOMETHING WE WERE

FOCUSSED ON AND WORKING ON

CLINTON SAYS THEY HAVE SPECIAL

FORCES THERE TO SUSPECT THE

TERRORISTS.

SHE HAD A DEBATE WITH BARACK

OBAMA OVER WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE?

SHE SAID THE BUCK STOPS IN THE

OVAL OFFICE.

SEVEN CHRISTIANS ARRESTED FOR

HOLDING A PRAYER IMMEDIATING.

AUTHORITIES ARE CARRYING OUT

HARASSMENT OF CHRISTIANS OF ALL

DENOMINATIONS.

FIVE CHRISTIANS DETAINED WITH

NOW FACING TRIAL.

THEIR ALLEGED CRIMES INCLUDE

PROPAGATION AGAINST ISLAMIC

REGIME AND DEFAMING ISLAMIC HOLY

FIGURES.

MERVYN THOMAS SAYS THERE IS AN

INCREASING TENDENCY BY THE

IRANIAN AUTHORITIES.

PEOPLE ARE BEING HARASSED MERELY

ON A ACCOUNT OF THEIR FAITH.

THE CAMPAIGN TARGETS MEMBERS OF

FAITH.

QUEEN ELIZABETH IN BIRMINGHAM

IS ON HIGH ALERT.

THIS GIRL IS RECOVERING.

TWO MEN CLAIMING TO BE HER

RELATIVES WERE QUESTIONED AND

TURNED AWAY.

MALALA WAS TARGETED BY THE

TALIBAN FOR CRITICIZES THE

MILITANT GROUP.

DOCTORS SAY SHE HAS A CHANCE TO

MAKE A GOOD RECOVERY.

COMING UP, GOVERNMENT WASTE,

THE RIDICULOUS WAYS WASHINGTON

SPENDS MONEY.

IT HAS BECOME AN ANNUAL

OUTRAGE, OKLAHOMA SENATOR

LISTING 100 WORST ABUSES OF

GOVERNMENT SPENDING.

SOME EXAMPLES, NASA SPENDING ONE

MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR

RESEARCHING FOOD FOR ASTRONAUTS

FOR FOOD ON MARS.

$300,000 TO CREATE A ROBOTIC

SQUIRREL AND 1.5 MILLION DOLLAR

COMPUTER IN UTAH.

VERY LITTLE DONE AND RUNNING UP

A TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT.

FOR MORE ON THIS, WE ARE

JOINED BY TOM SHATS FOR CITIZENS

AGAINST GOVERNMENT WASTE.

IT IS MY GUESS RATTLESNAKES

DON'T LIKE SQUIRRELS.

WHY DO WE CARE.

[LAUGHTER].

WE HAVE THAT TRILLION DOLLAR

DEFICIT YOU JUST MENTIONED.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF WE HAVE A

SURPLUS OF A TRILLION OR DEFICIT

OF A TRILLION.

CERTAIN THINGS THE GOVERNMENT

SHOULDN'T BE DOING. WE

MENTIONED THREE OF THESE THINGS.

WHAT IS THE ONE THAT OUTRAGES

YOU THE MOST?

$300,000 FOR A COMPANY IN

OHIO TO MARKET THEIR CAVIAR.

IT IS AN EXPENSIVE EYE

TESTIMONY.

IT SELLS ITSELF.

WHAT ABOUT ALL THE OTHER CAVIAR

MAKERS.

I DON'T WANT THEM TO GET

$300,000 FROM THE GOVERNMENT.

THIS WASTEFUL SPENDING MAKES

PEOPLE ANGRY AND CONTRIBUTES TO

CONGRESS'S LOW APPROVAL RATING.

WE SEE THESE WASTES YEAR AFTER

YEAR, WHY DOESN'T IT STOP?

CERTAINLY HELPS EXPLAIN WHY

CONGRESS'S POPULARITY IS AT THE

LOWEST LEVEL EVER.

THAP CAN'T ADDRESS THE MOST

OBVIOUS EXAMPLES OF WASTE.

THEY CAN'T VOTE ON ELIMINATING

18 MILLION DOLLARS THAT SENATOR

COVERN HAS IDENTIFY.

THE SENATOR HAS HELPED PUSH THE

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE

TO SHOW 400 BILLION A YEAR IN

WASTEFUL SPENDING.

THAT IS ABOUT 10 PERCENT.

THESE EXAMPLES GET PEOPLE

OUTRAGED, AND HOPEFULLY THEY'LL

CARRY IT THROUGH AND MAKE SURE

THEY GET THEIR MESSAGE THROUGH

AT THE POLLS.

THE ONE IN UTAH, UNIVERSITY

OF UTAH, LAST I CHECKED, THEY

HAVE A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY OF

REPRESENTATION IN WASHINGTON

THESE ARE RELATIVE FISCAL

CONSERVATIVES, WHY ARE THEY

DOING THAT?

THESE ARE GRANTS REQUESTED BY

UNIVERSITIES AND RESEARCHERS AND

THERE IS APPARENTLY WAY TOO MUCH

MONEY IN WASHINGTON SINCE THEY

ARE FUNDING THESE ABSURD GRANTS

AND PROGRAMS WE SHOULDN'T BE

DOING.

THE STIMULUS ADDED A LOT OF

MONEY TO THESE AREAS AND THAT

HAS LED TO A LOT OF WASTE.

TOM COVERN, IS HE GOOD ABOUT

NOT SPENDING THE MONEY FOR HIS

HOME STATE? ABSOLUTELY.

HE ENACTED THE EARMARK

MORATORIUM AND ELIMINATE THEM

PERMANENTLY.

SOLID 95 PLUS FOR HIS LIFETIME

AND GREAT EXAMPLE FOR OTHER

SENATORS.

TOM SHATS, THANK YOU FOR

PROVIDING THIS INFORMATION TO

US.

THANK YOU.

UP NEXT, ISRAEL AND IRAN, AN

ISRAELI POLITICIAN SPEAKS OUT

ABOUT HOW THE WORLD SHOULD

HANDLE IRAN'S NUCLEAR SITUATION.

A NEW VERSION OF AN OLD VIRUS

AFFECTING COMPUTERS IN IRAN AND

AROUND THE MIDDLE EAST.

THE NEW CYBER ESPIONAGE VIRUS

LINKED TO FLAME VIRUS.

IT WAS DEVELOPED AS A MASSIVE

SPY OPERATION MEANT TO HURT

IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

THIS NEW VIRUS IS DUBBED

MINIFLAME.

ISRAEL HAS BECOME A MAJOR ISSUE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MITT ROMNEY

ARE BATTLING OVER WHO IS A

BETTER FRIEND TO THE STATE.

STAKES COULDN'T BE HIGHER.

IRAN IS THREATENING TO WIPE

ISRAEL OFF THE MAP.

ERICK STAKELBECK SAD DOWN

WITH A TOP OFFICIAL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA CREATED AN

UPROAR WHEN HE SAID HE COULDN'T

MEET WITH NETANYAHU DURING THE

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER'S VISIT

TO THE UNITED STATES.

IT WAS OVER IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

NOW A MAN WHO MANY SEE AS A

RISING STAR IN ISRAELI POLITICS

HAS TOUGH WORDS FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

PRESIDENT OBAMA TRIED TO

BULLY OUR PRIME MINISTER TO MAKE

CONCESSIONS.

DANNY DANNON IS PART OF THE

PARTY.

HIS NEW BOOK, "ISRAEL, THEY WILL

PREVAIL."

HE SAYS IT IS IMPORTANT WHEN IT

COMES TO IRAN'S RAPIDLY

ADVANCING NUCLEAR WEAPON 'S

PROGRAM.

IT SHOULD BE A JOINT EFFORT.

IF WE HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN

ALLOWING IRAN TO BUILD A BOMB,

ALSO BOMB IRAN.

WE WOULD CHOOSE THE SECOND

OPTION AND BOMB IRAN.

THEY ARE TIRED OF GIVING UP

LAND FOR PEACE, ONLY TO GET MORE

WAR FROM MUSLIM NEIGHBORS.

ENOUGH WITH CONCESSIONS AND

GIVING LAND AND PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYING GO BACK TO '67 LINES.

HE SAID ISRAEL SHOULD ANNEX

OR CLAIM THE WEST BANK AND LET

PALESTINIANS GOVERN THEMSELVES.

U.S. HAS SUPPORTED A PALESTINIAN

STATE.

DANNON SAYS IT WOULD NOT SEE A

CREATION OF A FULL BLOWN

PALESTINIAN STATE, RATHER JORDAN

AND ISRAEGYPT JOIN ISRAEL.

HOW DO YOU THINK JORDAN AND

EGYPT WOULD RESPOND?

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

HE SAYS ISRAEL'S CLAIM IS

ABOUT A COVENANT.

WHY ARE JUDEA AND SAMARIA

IMPORTANT FOR ISRAEL TO KEEP?

IT IS IN THE BIBLE.

IT COULD ONLY COME AFTER

ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST AND

ISRAEL'S ENEMIES LIKE HAMAS AND

HEZBOLLAH WOULD HAVE TO BE

DECISIVELY DEFEATED.

THE ARAB SPRING SHOWS THE

SITUATION ON THE GROUND CAN

CHANGE DRAMATICALLY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS,
