(Reuters) - Losing ground to Republican Mitt Romney on a host of issues, President Barack Obama faces a serious challenge to put his re-election bid back on track when the two men face off on Tuesday in their second debate.
Obama's passive performance in their first debate two weeks ago and Romney's subsequent surge have raised expectations for a more fiery encounter at New York's Hofstra University.
The Democratic president's team has been encouraged by the feisty performance of Vice President Joe Biden last week in his debate against Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.
Now, with Romney having virtually erased Obama's lead in national polls just three weeks before the November 6 election, Obama is hoping to take advantage of the town hall-style format in Tuesday's debate to make a direct pitch to voters.

After Joey Buffoon’s laughfest the other night, I’m looking for a lot of cheap shots from Barry. Smartass stuff.
“The Democratic president’s team has been encouraged by the feisty performance of Vice President Joe Biden”
Please, Obama, copy Biden. And Gore!
I cannot imagine The One laughing like a loon and constantly interrupting. I might even watch. Maybe he’ll try to invade Mitt’s personal space!
1) Numerous interruptions and breaking of debate rules.
2) An attempt by Obana to overwhelm Mitt with accusations, many brand new, and all ABSOLUTELY false.
3) A return of the infamous middle finger along the jaw (the F*** YOU gesture).
4) Answering any charge made by Mitt Romney, not with an answer, but an ignoring of the question and five counter-charges.
Expect a million interruptions by ZERO, exceeding his alloted time EVERY time, and calling Romney a “Honkie” everytime Romney opens his mouth!!!
after interviewing rats, commies and psycho’s, biden was declared the winner of the debate, but even the psycho’s had problems with the blowhard’s antics.
bttt - good list
I’ll bet you’re right. He watched Joey Buffoon get away with all of the interruptions. He’ll use the same tactic Tuesday night. Like Joey, he’ll take control of the debate as quickly as he can and the moderator won’t do anything about it. I think the “debate commission” could have done a little better job picking the moderators.
"We didn't land on Plymouth Rock..."
1) More good ‘ol Saul Alinsky, nothing much more.
2) Insistence that Romney has zero experience at foreign policy
3) Insistence that Romney’s ideas on foreign policy (i.e. graduated intimidation on Iran) won’t work
4) Insistence that Romney is a mass murderer like Bush.
5) Insistence that Bain Capital victimizes businesses
Obama has plenty of attacks, but Romney knows enough about himself to pretty much turn it into a question for Obama to answer. (remember how Obama wasted bailout money which he could have paid the salaries of two million teachers?)
Romney’s also not done unloading his bailout info either, prepare to hear some more of that.
Will Romney get questions designed to make him look bad? I don't think that is possible when you contrast Romney against Obama. I believe Romney will come out on top.
Still fun to watch,not often ya get to see a debate with a socialist.
Kind of a stunning headline, you know? How long ago would it have automatically been “In second debate, ROMNEY faces challenges on key issues” ?
That said, I'm pretty confident that Romney is prepared and ready for it.
1365 days AFTER INAUGURATION, in the second Debate of the 2012 Election, “Obama faces challenges on key issues”...
How about his HORRIBLE record on the economy?
Bush spoke some Spanish. Bill Clinton could “French”.
Also, from all of that “outsourcing” Romney did. That would give him plenty of international experience. /sarc
Challenging questions like what is his golf handicap?
