Obama Turns Feisty

The president didn't repeat the mistakes of his first debate with Mitt Romney; he went on the attack and stayed there. But Romney's performance was no disaster, either.

Had U.S. President Barack Obama been an Israeli politician, he would probably disdain attending the bar-mitzvahs of party activists' children, a necessary feature of sustaining support among the party base. His dislike for the debate format is also quite obvious.
