Obama vs. Romney, Round 2: tense, testy and turbulent

The second Presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Romney took place last night on the campus of Hofstra University. After a poor performance in the first debate, President Obama needed to redeem himself if he wanted to keep the Presidential race close. In an opinion piece on, Professor Alan Schroeder speculates that President Obama succeeded in doing just that and "delivered a comeback performance that will stand as a model for future debaters of how to right a listing ship." Brooke speaks with Professor Schroeder about his piece and the many volatile moments from the second debate.

    President Obama shows his true side Liar -in- Chief. He has the audacity to tell the American people he called the Libyan tragedy a terrorist attack the next day in the Rose Garden. He did NOT say that and we know he is a liar and an imposter.
    Romney wins again !!

    Romney is just another man that sold his soul to the devil for a few bucks, for the short time he will spend on earth........I feel sorry for blind greedy people like Romney who are doomed to go to hell because they let the devil trick them......President Obama has lived a good God fearing life here on earth, he has been a good and faithful servant to the Lord, Obama will spend eternity in Heaven. Obama is already the winner.

    I feel sorry for the hard working god fearing middle class worker that has fell under the spell of Mitt Romney. He has flip flopped on important issues that will affect the finances of these people. He won't tell people were he will get the money he is going to use to pay down the deficit. He won't tell women if he will support equal pay for equal work, when his running mate voted against the Lilly Ledbetter amendment that would give them that right. The Pied Piper is leading them with false hope while his rich friends are ready to take what little money the working class left.

    No way could a black man run for president of the United States without giving a detail explanation on how he will help America......I think Romney is a big joke..........I can't believe America has to continue to listen to his nonsense....all Romney does is tell everyone that president Obama is doing everything wrong and he will do everything much better, without a plan........The world must think Americans are total idiots for allowing Romney to even speak to America, let alone run for president.......Romneys whole plan for running for president was to come on the scene like superman, and just tell everyone he is the great savior just believe me, wow.....I can't believe this is happening.
