During the 2nd presidential date, after Obama incorrectly stated he labeled the attack on Libya a terrorist action and the moderator jumped in, it sounded as if the room was erupting in applause.

This action incorrectly painted a picture of support to the viewers at home and disrupted Romney's response.
