At $35,000 a head Gotham City fundraiser, President tells donors Republican criticism of his foreign policy doesn’t match his record.

Obama: “The other side traditionally seems to feel that Democrats are somehow weak on defense, but they’ve had a little trouble making that argument this year.”

More POTUS: “There’s no contradiction between having a smart foreign policy, a foreign policy that is consistent with our values, but also being tough and looking out for America’s national security.”

And: Obama hits 100th fundraiser, bringing in $5M.
