Lots of energy. Eye contact from Obama tonight. He's learned something.

President Obama gave a better first impression than he did during the last debate, but many on Twitter thought he was unrealistic in suggesting the first questioner, college student Jeremy Epstein, would be interested in a manufacturing job.
Pretty sure that college student isn't looking for a manufacturing job. #debate

Jeremy Epstein is not going to want a manufacturing job. Why doesn't Obama point out that GOP budget would slash education funding?
