Erupts in response let's go to Fox's Sunday anchor Chris Wallace now for more in Washington Chris.
Well let me try to sort out a couple of spots that's one of my jobs here tonight on this question of Libya I think -- really have to say that both.
The president and Romney were wrong the president was wrong because he seemed.
To imply that he had declared the attack and Ben Ghazi an act of terror.
The next day he was clearly stung by by Romney saying what you went off to a fund raiser in Las Vegas and he's had no I was in the Rose Garden.
And I declared it an act of -- -- -- mentioned -- said was no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation.
And did not refer specifically to -- at all I think Romney was wrong and that he tried to.
Say well look you you know you've given up -- game here because you declared -- an act of terror on September 12.
But then Susan Rice went out on the sixteenth is that it wasn't an act of terror.
I'm not sure that either of those are true the other thing that was really quite a remarkable moment we want to play it again and then tell you the facts on the other side.
Was when the two men and I don't think I've ever seen this in a presidential debate.
Face to face interrupting each other on the question of federal drilling permits let's take a look at the time.
In the last four years you cut permits and licenses on federal land in federal waters in half not -- around.
So how much -- you cannot -- by -- to kind of by the governor we're actually produced more oil you know how much ought -- licenses and permits and show Atlanta federal waters governor -- here's what we get.
Or -- whole bunch of -- -- Well we've looked at the fact like we can't say that is exactly and a half but but Romney -- certainly would say have the edge on the truth here.
It turns out that on oil and gas permits.
Two years of the bush -- three years of the Bush Administration.
Verses three years of the Obama administration.
Offshore permits were cut by sixty.
-- would -- cut I'm sorry by more than 13.
Now let me wait a second and got that wrong by 62% that's what I -- 62%.
-- from 2006 and 2009 -- 995.
New well permits.
In the first three years of the Obama administration 374.
New well permits so that was a sixty.
2% cut in in -- as far as onshore permits were concerned it was a cut by a third.
The last three years the Bush Administration 20000.
Federal drilling permits.
The first three years of the -- -- administration 121800.
So -- was basically right that that was a major -- in permits onshore and offshore.
In terms of overall in the debate my feeling was you know if you -- one guy or another.
You had plenty April product Romney's best moments were as -- -- when he was just laying out the litany and he did it very effectively.
Of the the record of the Obama administration on employment on -- on poverty on median income.
I thought Obama's best moments were when he basically -- -- Romney favors the rich.
And he talked about the fact that he thinks that it's okay for him to pay 14%.
But a lot of middle class people pay a lot lower because -- whereas Romney is thing.
Capital gains taxes overall my reaction.
I think it certainly stop the bleeding and -- Obama campaign and for that they're gonna be very up.
Chris my question you leave -- go is did do this debate anyway lift anybody up to that lift either candidate up -- did the -- did that lift the audience at home not because you know -- an anchor and I know as an anchor.
The one thing viewers.
And in this case voters don't like is when they talk over each other and when they're disrespectful to one another and I thought I personally found it ironic that they spent so much time trying to win over the women voters.
And one thing women voters don't like is a bully and these two men were each other's faces getting up each other's -- interrupting -- another.
And I you know listen I don't -- any dial sitting here but I can tell yeah I think a lot of women will react negatively to that.
Well it's interesting because they both clearly haven't had had been taught well coached when somebody asking -- question you -- to relate to them he wanna walk towards them you wanna repeat their name.
That's a great questions though.
On the other hand as you say when they were dealing with -- each other.
The court totally obnoxious with each other and it was at like at that point like ability just went out the wind -- And they've been struggling so hard to build that -- so we'll see whether tonight -- -- game changer.
