Media applauds when Obama attacks Romney's wealth

From the Washington Times (Stephen Dinan, "Reporters applaud Obama's slam on Romney's wealth," October 17, 2012).
. . . "Mr. President, have you looked at your pension?" Mr. Romney said. 
"You know, I don't look at my pension. It's not as big as yours, so it — it doesn't take as long," Mr. Obama retorted. His reply prompted laughter in the debate hall where the two men were squaring off — but across the way in the separate room where the press was stationed, a brief round of applause broke out. 
Mr. Obama has made Mr. Romney's personal wealth a major issue in the campaign, arguing that he is out of touch with average voters who pay a higher income tax rate even though they earn far less than Mr. Romney, who founded and ran Bain Capital, an investment firm. . . .
