Pema Levy –
Mitt Romney went after President Obama in a contentious back-and-forth, demanding an answer to how many oil drilling permits he cut during the last four years, at Hofstra University debate Tuesday night.
President Obama responded, saying he gave drillers a "use it or lose it" ultimatum. Both men stood up off their stools and faced off on the debate stage, challenging each other in a heated confrontation.
