Obama vows to 'fight for victims'

President Obama closed the second Presidential debate by saying there is a "fundamentally different vision" about he and Mitt Romney would move the country forward.

I believe Governor Romney is a good man, loves his family, cares about his faith but I also believe that when he said, behind closed doors, that 47 per cent of the country considered themselves victims who refused personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about.

Folks on social security who have worked all their lives, veterans who have sacrificed for this country, students who are out there trying to hopefully their own dreams but also their own dreams, soldiers who are overseas fighting for us right now, people who are working hard everyday paying payroll taxes, gas taxes, but don't make enough income.

I want to fight for them, that's what I've been doing for the last four years because if they succeed, I believe the country succeeds.
