Two students (above) do their best Obama and Romney impersonations as preparations were underway for the second presidential debate set for Oct. 16.

After receiving very poor reviews for his performance in the first debate, followed by bad poll numbers that seem to have leveled off on news of lower unemployment figures, President Obama looks to regain momentum tonight in a debate with Republican nominee Mitt Romney at Hofstra University.  The town-hall style debate is set to be moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley, worth noting as moderators in this year’s debates seem to be getting as much attention as the candidates.
