President Obama vowed to change his approach for his second debate against Mitt Romney, and followed through with his promise.
During part two of their meeting, this time in Hempstead, N.Y., the commander in chief and the former governor verbally battled, often speaking over one another to get their points across. Even though the president was the clear victor in the battle, Romney held his own for at least half of the verbal combat.
For his part, the president reinforced previous adages behind job creation, and taking care of the middle class. Romney worked to get a similar point across, while both parties took the other to task on audience-posed questions on topics like the economy, foreign policy, and immigration.Keeping in line with some of the criticism that he has received in the past for failing to outline a specific tax plan, Romney reiterated that his background in business will help in running the country. “I know what it takes to make an economy work, ” he said making mention to the tens of millions of American still out of work.
On the subject of taxes, the 65-year-old, tried to show that he does not favor the wealthy —as widely reported — and wants “the top 5%” of Americans to pay 60% in income taxes, despite the fact that he only paid 13% in taxes on income above $10 million.
