Finally, Obama decided to debate, and he was good. There seemed a general sense that Obama had the edge in this debate as he called out Romney's lies - on policies to increase military spending while slashing taxes for the rich, something that would dig America into an even bigger debt, the same Bush policies that got America into the fiscal mess it is in now.
On women, Romney's "binders full of women" statement is becoming emblematic of a Republican Party deaf to the voices of American women.
On Libya, Romney was fact-checked... by the moderator. Romney questioned Obama that he did not say the word "terrorist" on the occasion of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Romney was persistent in this accusation. It was then that the moderator stepped in and said that Obama indeed used those words from the Whitehouse. This was a very embarrassing moment for Romney.
After a disasterous first debate, Obama has redeemed himself and exposed Romney's inconsistent statements, unrealistic policies, and his true interests in helping the rich get richer while ignoring the rest.
