Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod says in a conference call with reporters that the president will need to determine by the next debate how to counter what the campaign considers Romney's evasion on a series of issues.

Axelrod says the president is, quote, "eager" for the next debate. He says they will evaluate his performance and "I'm sure that we will make adjustments."

Axelrod also tried to turn the first debate into a matter of character. He repeatedly accused Romney of "hiding the truth and the facts" from the American people.
