Obama Romney debate could be a staring contest

The list really does go on and on. Will cutting government spending significantly harm the economy? Both Obama and Romney say yes. Undeclared wars? No difference between the two. Can the president imprison U.S. citizens indefinitely without due process? Both say yes. Can the president assassinate U.S. citizens similarly without due process? Yes and yes. Should the U.S. military take an active and even preemptive role in the internal affairs of other nations? Both agree on that, too.

In reality, if there were a rule during their first debate stipulating that the two candidates only debate issues upon which they fundamentally disagree, the debate would be reduced to a staring contest.

It still amazes me that so many people can absolutely HATE one of these candidates while loving or at least being perfectly willing to vote for the other. -
