Article Photos: Obama on debate with Romney: 'I had a bad night' 7/9

  In this Oct. 8, 2012, photo, President Barack Obama speaks during a campaign event in San Francisco. The last campaign got the glory. This one is the grind. For all the many ways that Obama's bid for a second term is different than his first, the one that stands out now is the feel at the finish. The crowds are behind him, but this is not the 2008 "Fired Up, Ready To Go!" Obama's admonition to supporters might as well be turned around _ be ready to go, or I may get fired.
