Last night's presidential debate, the second of three, was much different from the first one. The president and his republican challenger came out swinging; circling each other much of the night like two prize fighters.
Mitt Romney was most at home in this town hall style debate when hammering away at the president's economic policies, but the president attacked not only Romney's tax plan, but Romney's taxes. He discussed the fact the Republican Presidential Nominee paid a lower rate on his millions than ordinary working class folks do on theirs. But unlike the last debate, most agree that President Barack Obama brought his ‘A' game this time around.
"Obama lost the first debate, there's no doubt about it," said South Dakota School of Mines professor John Dreyer. "Romney came out as very aggressive in the first debate. A lot of people expected President Obama to kind of make a comeback this debate and I think he did."
"I like Romney just because of what he believes and what he stands for, but I thought Obama, I mean they did well. They looked like they were going to you know fist fight up there," said South Dakota School of Mines grad student Erik Yeash.
The final presidential debate is scheduled for Monday the 22nd.
