After a lackluster debate performance two weeks ago, a strongly confident President Barack Obama went on the attack Tuesday night against GOP challenger Mitt Romney in their second round at Hofstra University on Long Island, N.Y.
He attacked Romney as a caretaker of the rich.
"Gov. Romney doesn't have a five-point plan. He has a one-point plan,” Obama said in reference to the former Massachusetts governor’s plan to create jobs. That policy, he said, was that “those at the top play by a different set of rules.”
Obama defended his administration’s bailout of Detroit’s automobile industry. “They came back stronger.”
He also touted the future of clean energy.
“The most important thing we can do is control our own energy,” Obama said. He added that an expanded energy industry in the US could create as many as 600,000 jobs and provide 100 years of energy from natural gas alone.
Romney’s energy policy, Obama said, is “to let the oil companies write energy policy.”
