supporters and a lot of democrats this morning coming out winging, agreeing that mitt romney came out swing really connected a few blows against president obama. we have a look back. >> yeah, we were all up last night and many calling it a game changer for the presidential election . president obama and mitt romney taking the stage for rown one of the debate series, this one in denver . they tried to appeal to middle class voters likely to decide who will win the states. >> governor romney's proposal he promoted 18 months calls for a five trillion dollar tax cuts on top of two trillion in spending for our military. he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loop holes and deductions. the problem is, he's been

>> that's the one we all want to see. thank you so much. >> the president and mitt romney not veering from their messages and taking every chance they could to hit one another on the policies. >> i know that you and your running mate is saying that and it is popular thing to say but it is not the case. i got five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true but keeping on repeating it and hoping i will believe it. that's not the case. i will not reduce taxes paid by high income americans. >> the fact is, if you low are the rates the way you describe, governor, it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loop holes that only affect high income individuals to avoid raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it is math. it is arithmetic. >> don't forget you put 90 billion, 50 yearrs worth of
breaks in solar and wind to solyndra, and fis car and i have a friend who said you don't just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers, this is not the kind of policy you want to have. >> bill clinton tried the approach i am talking about. we created 23 million new job went from ficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so, in some ways we have data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunities for americans and i believe that the economy works best when middle class families are getting tax breaks so they have money in l pockets and those of us who did extraordinarily well because of the magnificent country we are living in. >> so what came out on top after last night's showdown? we'll ask obama delegate brian benjamin and fox news
contractor angela mccowan. >> thank you. >> it was a long night. angela who won and why? >> of course romney did. people want substance and solution and not glorified speeches. obama is good at that and he didn't have the teleprompter and he had to defend what he did. and sometimes he was babbling on and you coon understand -- couldn't understand him. romney stayed on point. he has to perform well in the next debate. >> before we get to the next debate. brian who do you think won last night? >> i think romney won stylically. romm rom made the point he will not raise the taxes on the wealthy. that is false. he talked about lowering the rates for top income folks and
corporate rate. one of the things i was saying earlier, i called my aunt. wait a minute, i knew romney was going to privatize medicare and they are leaving that out. if you are issue oriented when you hear romney say i am going to voucherize medicare you are concerned. >> it is not just about medicare, benjamin. he said he will not raise taxes. he will cut spending and cutting spending you take those dollars to decrease taxes. small businesses have been taxed enough. the reason why we have the tea party, we are taxed enough already . the bottom line, obama came up with great friends but 47 million people are on food stampings. >> you seem to disagree with a lot of pundits who said obama didn't do his best last night.
romney won hands down. body language alone. if you looked at the debate. president obama looked down a lot. and looking at his notes. what about the body language. >> i thought body language. styliically romm rom was the winner. no one disputes that. but the substance issues, when you look at the fact that mitt romney got out there and said, he's not going to voucher -- he will voucherize medicare and cut taxes. what i find interesting is that mitt romney has been all over the place in what he. >> no, he hasn't. >> you can't trust him. just yesterday he said something else. when it comes down to it. they are issues that are challenging. >> for obama to go back to the bill clinton days. bill clinton worked with republicanns, president obama has not. >> he tried to work with
republicans. >> one more question i want to ask you both. >> sure. >> what about the undecided vores? that is what they aimed for. who won the undecided vote. >> mitt romney did. independents are result oriented and mitt romney said this is how it worked in the past and going to be done. >> i think independents are undecided if they had the second and third debate to see. i am not convinced on that. it is a month left and we have a long time to go. >> the two will meet again. and as the vice-president's meet up on october 11th. thank you for joining us this morning. >> it was a good debate. >> it is time for five at 5:38. how would mitt romney want the world to view america if he elected president of the united states. we may get a good idea next
