Obama Floors Romney

This was a much different, and, truth be told, a better debate than the first one.  Unlike that first debate, President Barack Obama didn't allow misstatements and untruths told by challenger Mitt Romney go unchallenged.  And on the final response of the night, Obama floored Romney by using his own words against him.  

What is incredible is that Romney walked right into it; he served up a big fat softball underhand, and Obama knocked it out of the stadium.  Romney himself brought up the topic when he said that he cared about 100% of the population.  All Obama had to do at that point was remind debate watchers that Romney was the one who said 47% of the country (veterans, students, and retired people) were lazy and did not pay enough taxes.  It was an easy task, but one that had to be made.
