Reuters: Team Obama “scrambles” to keep lead after Romney shines in debate
Not gloating but liking it, definitely liking it at this point.
President Barack Obama’s backers scrambled to keep his edge in the presidential race on Thursday after rival Mitt Romney’s aggressive debate performance put his campaign on a more positive footing following weeks of setbacks.
Romney gave a strong performance and stayed on the offensive throughout the two men’s first head-to-head meeting in the campaign for the November 6 election. But with less than five weeks before Election Day, the Republican still faces a tough fight to overtake the Democrat.
Obama landed some punches on Romney’s tax plan, but appeared restrained and missed – or chose not to pursue – several opportunities to attack.
