And policy cage match I have never seen anything like this in my thirty some years cover politics on and off the president.
Much more assertive in this than in the debate.
In the first debate out in Denver as his advisors had had promised them for ninety minutes the president and governor Romney mix that up over.
That the economy taxes.
Health care energy policy.
And even each others' investments.
Chinese investments in their pensions.

Well sure on on -- style.
Both of them had to try to appear to be as assertive as possible but the president more so given that he was criticized so roundly.
Even by members of his own party as you know for being it.
