DEBATE: do you pay as much attention when "the other guy" is talking as you do when your candidate is talking?

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.

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

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

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

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!

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.
