It was clear during Tuesday nights second debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney, the stakes are extremely high. The president looking to make up for lost ground, Mr. Romney looking to hold on to momentum.
There were interruptions, jabs, animated reactions, and much more fiery than the first debate. A much more spirited and aggressive debate compared to the first one, especially from President Obama. The two men argued a lot about the issues, from high gas prices, to tax cuts, to Libya.
Governor Romney said, "The standard is what you pay at the pump, gas prices
were 1.85 when he took office, now over 4 dollars, cost of everything comes
Obama came back swinging, "Think about what the governor just said, he said when I took office the price of gasoline was 1.80, 1.86, why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse. Because we were about to go through the worst recession since
The Great Depression."
Dozens of supporters from both sides now arguing with the press that their guy did better. There is one more debate to come next Monday night, in the key battleground state of Florida.
