HEMPSTEAD, United States, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney traded assaults in their second debate Tuesday night in a rare format of town hall meeting.
Obama, who is under pressure to perform up, led the charge. He aggressively attacked Romney's economic proposals as a "one-point plan" to help the rich, while saying his own plans would grow the economy and help the middle class.
"When Governor Romney said we should let Detroit go bankrupt, I said we're going to bet on American workers," said Obama. "Governor Romney doesn't have a five-point plan. He has a one-point plan, and that plan is to make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules."
