President Obama bounced back from a weak presidential debate two weeks ago with a strong performance in New York.
Presenter Faye Barker reports:
– Jim Messina, Obama For America Camaign Manager
President Obama clearly won tonight’s debate. The American people saw their leader tonight – a strong, steady and decisive president with an affirmative vision to move this country forward and build the economy from the middle out, not the top down.
Tonight Barack showed, as he has every day as president, that he’ll fight to ensure everyone has a fair shot at the American Dream. –moFrom @MichelleObama on Twitter:
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.
– Mitt Romney, Republican Presidential Candidate
I care about 100 per cent of the American people. I want 100 per cent of the American people to have a bright and prosperous future. I care about our kids. I understand what it takes to make a bright and prosperous future for America again.
Mitt Romney said he wants to make America "the most attractive place in the world for entrepreneurs, for small business, for big business".
