Fact checks and analysis

The Globe provided real-time fact checks and analysis during tonight’s presidential debate. The debate started at 9 p.m. in Hempstead, N.Y., and was the second of three presidential debates for the 2012 election.

10:45 p.m. | ANALYSIS: Watching David Brooks and Mark Shields on PBS, I agree that Obama’s vulnerability tonight and going forward is the vagueness about what’s in a second term. What does 2014 look like? What exactly will he do? We didn’t hear a whole lot about that tonight.
