President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney sparred aggressively in their first campaign debate Wednesday night over taxes, deficits and strong steps needed to create jobs in a sputtering national economy
"Michelle, I love you. The other night, I think the entire country saw just how lucky I am. Malia and Sasha, you make me so proud…but don’t get any ideas, you’re still going to class tomorrow," the President began.
His re-election in doubt, President Barack Obama conceded only halting progress Thursday night toward fixing the nation's stubborn economic woes, but vowed in a Democratic National Convention finale, "Our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met."
We probably won’t see sweeping, comprehensive bills on immigration or the environment in a potential second term for our current president. Instead, expect to see Obama dedicate his second term to ensuring that the work accomplished in the first four years, like the passage of the Affordable Care Act, is seen through to fruition.
