AEHQ: Obama, Romney Spar in First Debate [VIDEO]
President Obama and Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney met face-to-face Wednesday night at the University of Denver in their first of three debates.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern and Jessica Rosenthal report from Denver:
From America’s Election Headquarters, I’m Jared Halpern at the University of Denver.
(Romney) “Mr. President, you’re entitled, as a President to your own airplane and your own house, but not your own facts.”
Republican Mitt Romney taking an aggressive strategy in his first debate with President Obama.
(Romney) “Obamacare is on my list, I apologize Mr. President, and I use that term with all respect by the way… Good… So I’ll get rid of that.”
And looking directly at his opponent, Romney told the President he picks losers, citing government investments in green energy companies.
If Romney tended to look at the President, the President tended to look at his notes or directly at the camera. He repeatedly blasted Mitt Romney for not being specific enough.
(Obama) “At some point, I think the American people have to ask themselves, is the reason that Governor Romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they’re too good?”
He also attacked Romney’s tax plans, warning that they’d force dramatic cuts in services and burden the middle class.
