HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — A feistier President Barack Obama faced off against Republican Mitt Romney in their second presidential debate, held tonight at Hofstra University in New York.
The rivals disagreed about taxes, measures to reduce the deficit, energy, pay equity for women and health care issues.
President Obama said the responsibility for what happened at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, falls to him, and to no one else.
Mitt Romney said the president's team either didn't know all the details — or didn't tell the truth — about the deaths of four Americans there immediately after last month's terror attack.
President Obama and Mitt Romney also clashed over immigration, with Romney accusing Obama of failing to reform the immigration system during his first term.
Obama said that Romney has opposed the DREAM Act, a bill that would have provided a path to legal status for many young illegal immigrants.
