Mitt Romney opened the presidential debate Wednesday in Denver with a spirited attack on President Obama's handling of the economy and the deficit, prompting many commentators to observe that Romney looked the more prepared of the two candidates. Romney was often the aggressor throughout the debate, seizing control several times during the evening, and accusing Obama of poor stewardship of the economy over the last four years, and dishonesty on Wednesday night. At one point Romney looked at Obama and said, "Virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate."
