DEBATE: do you pay as much attention when "the other guy" is talking as you do when your candidate is talking?
Yes but it's painful!
The only problem is that Romney has about 5 phrases he says and nothing more. Its like a toy doll with a string. That and he never has any details.
More. So I can tell everybody every little mistake Obama makes :)
I try to keep an open mind and listen to both...
Neither are my candidate. Where is the debate with ALL potential candidates?
Gotta listen to both to call bullshite on them.
Yeah, I pay attention to both of them.
That was uncalled for and rude. I could venture to say, "You Democrats listen to our Republican candidates and STILL don't change parties? Mustn't understand English."
More actually, I like to compare my homework on Obama to his actual answers.
Really? You republicans listen? I don't believe it.. You understand English? Perhaps, but common logic is far from your understanding, undoubtedly
I pay more attention to the other guy
Show of Hands polls credible as they seem to not truly reflect a true consensus or cross-section of Americans. Nor do they even come close to major national polls. Has become a waist of time!
Yes. Since I don't have a guy I pay attention to both candidates. I want to see which I agree with more and who I think is the lesser of the 2 evils
Yes i love to prove obama wrong with a mini debate in my head
Good luck on that!
You mean like Romney (in both debates)? Yup - thought so.
Yup - Mitt was F.O.S. as always...!
Neither did (though Obama is more at fault).
Yes.... Though it pisses me the hell off hearing all his lies, half truths, and hypocritical statements.
Rite. & audience applauded. Willard thinks we are all dumb & stupid, when its only his base that is challenged.
Heck yea. Gotta see what new, old lies he's gotta pick outta his hat, u just never kno, which topic he's gonna talk about that he's against it before he was for it...
If not more.
I pay MORE attention to the opponent.
Your bias is showing - is it because he's black that he's lying?
The moderator just proved Romnut wrong! Haha! About the Lybia attack.
Obama did not answer the guy's question about the Benghazi attack.
Neither of these is "my guy", but I listen closely to both. I really try to overlook BO's annoying speech patterns, and WR's smarmy demeanor, but it's hard sometimes.
Yes, even more so. I want to know exactly what their plans are so I can make an informed decision in my vote. Those who tune out the other person hurt our democratic system... Vote for the person and their policies, not the party
BO is hard to listen to....his cadence and tone are almost as annoying as his liberal and radical views. A speech coach definitely helped him improve his whistling "s" though.
Both are going to say what they need to so they sound better then the other. Romnut is actually getting a little hostile. I think that he was losing his cool. It is funny
Well, they're both the other guy for me so yes I do
Obama sounds like a self-parody.
5 point plan like the 5 pillars of Islam.
4g Obama phone, public housing or rent subsidy, free health care, aid to dependent children, SNAP (food stamps), preferential admissions to college, WIC, welfare, unemployment....
How many five point plans does Romnut have?
If I could understand what the heck Obama was saying I'd pay more attention but he jumps around from topic to topic avoiding the question so it makes it practically impossible to follow him!
It's the economy, stupid.
BIG BIRD just called on his Obamaphone to say he thinks Romney is winning this debate, and Obama's mom should have had free contraception.
Of course my bias is in the way. I have opinions on the state of our country. What's wrong with that?
Food costs more, gas costs more, health insurance costs more
if O created tax cuts then why is it still called the Bush tax cuts?
"The commitments I've made I've kept. " say Obama. Cut deficit in half-- lie. Not one dime of new taxes-- lie...
@flgoesrep - that's just sad.
Obama is over 4 minutes more time than Romney. She is not doing her job and it is unfair to romney
payroll tax cuts the GOP tried to shut down. look it up.
Ah, Romney math so....none.
sure you did
I have no idea what middle class tax cut Obama is taking credit for. I'm very middle class and I didn't see any cuts.
