Obama and Romney, in First Debate, Spar Over Fixing the Economy. NYT

Mitt Romney aggressively pressed President Obama on the economy, jobs and health care in a debate Wednesday that avoided the kind of one-liners that sometimes emerge from the high-stakes face-offs between the candidates to lead America.

For Mr. Romney, the stakes were particularly high in his first debate against the president. The two men interacted frequently with each other in a debate where the format encouraged free-form discussion rather than quick, 60-second answers.

Mr. Obama sought to portray Mr. Romney as making irresponsible proposals that would not help the middle class. But he did not aggressively attack Mr. Romney with some of the ammunition that his campaign has been wielding effectively on the campaign trail.
