President Barack Obama immediately removed any doubt whether he would strike hard at former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the second presidential debate, virtually calling him a liar repeatedly within minutes of the beginning of the debate.

“What Gov. Romney said just isn’t true,” Obama shot back, after Romney said the unemployment rate would be 10.7 percent if people hadn’t dropped out of the workplace.”

In reference to Romney’s plan to increase employment, Obama said: "Gov. Romney doesn't have a 5-point plan. He has a 1-point plan.”

That plan, Obama said in reference to the class-divide issue, involves those at the top of the socio-economic ladder playing “by a different set of rules,” he said.

Romney’s calm response: “Let’s look at the president’s policies, as opposed to the rhetoric. Because we’ve had four years of the policies being played out.”
When Romney said public licenses for oil exploration had been reduced, Obama said: “Very little of what Gov. Romney just said is true. We’ve opened up public lands…”

Obama repeatedly said Romney’s statements were false, sometimes without citing refuting sources.

The promises of post-partisan, bipartisan politics from 2008 seemed long forgotten, despite the risk that the sharp attacks could drive up the president’s negatives with swing voters.
