Oh its on.

President Obama went after Mitt Romney on his "47%" comment and had a moment when they compared pensions.

HIGHLIGHTS:

Obama attacked Romney based on his "47 percent" of Americans comment  whom Romney said were "dependent" on government.

The president insinuated Romney’s tax proposals were a "sketchy deal" for the American people, and sought to tie the GOP nominee to George W. Bush.

Obama’s attacks extended into personal territory, too, as he frequently made reference to Romney’s immense personal wealth to make the broader case about Romney and "top-down economics."

"No, I haven't looked at my pension," he said in one exchange with Romney, "It's not as big as yours, so it doesn't take that long."
