Obama team vows president will have aggressive debate, puts Bain on the table

The Obama campaign made clear this weekend that President Obama will be more aggressive in his second debate with Mitt Romney, hinting that he will go after the Republican presidential nominee at several angles — from women’s issues to Romney’s tax plan and his tenure at Bain Capital.

“I think he’s going to be aggressive in making the case for his view of where we should go as a country,” senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Axelrod argued that Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan failed during a Sept. 30 appearance on Fox, then during his debate last week to detail how Romney would pay for his $5 trillion tax plan.

“So, we’re going to give Gov. Romney another chance on Tuesday to try and square this impossible circle,” Axelrod said.
