A lot of aggression on stage (VIDEO)

Obama supporters wanted an aggressive Obama, and an aggressive Obama is what they got. Twenty minutes into the debate and there has been forceful rebuttals and vigorous interrupting on both sides. Obama has accused Mitt Romney of saying something untrue at least three times. Both candidates have been talking over each other and talking over the moderator, Candy Crowley, and there hasn't been much interaction with the "regular" voters in the audience.

At one point, Romney aggressively approached Obama.

And there was an audible gasp from the audience when Romney cut off Obama, saying "you'll get your chance in a moment."
