Tuesday September 25, 2012 Happening Now

Lots of live events today for us to react to during "Happening Now." President Obama will be speaking before the U.N. General Assembly. He'll talk about the terror attack on our diplomats in Libya, but is not expected to call it terrorism. The President is expected to condemn recent anti-American violence. Here's one quote, "The attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on America. They are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the United Nations was founded..."

He'll also address the threat from Iran's nuke program. The President is expected to say "We will do what we must," to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons.

We'll have reaction to the U.N. speech and to his appearance on "The View." That appearance taped yesterday being met with some controversy since the President didn't meet with any foreign leaders (as he has done in year's past).

Mitt Romney will also be in New York City. He'll address the Clinton Global Initiative at 9 AM. He'll also speak to an education summit at 11:10. Mister Romney reacted to recent comments from President Obama calling the unrest in the Middle East ‘bumps in the road,' Romney said, "Look, the world looks at the events going on. They don't see these events as bumps in the road. These are lives. This is humanity. This is freedom. Freedom must be on the march. We must stand for freedom."

Paul Ryan in on a campaign bus tour through Ohio, and holds a town hall in Cincinnati at 11:30am.
