Mitt Romney and Barack Obama both today at rallies on the campaign trail.
What do you notice?

Isn't it funny how each one of us have such different opinions of the candidates' looks?
To me, Obama looks, and always has looked and sounded, extremely arrogant. I think Romney looks more casual and loose than stiff(now more than earlier)!
Amazes me how Obama thanks and includes, because he knows what teamwork can accomplish. Then you have Romney who complained the President doesnt know business and that he as the fabulous business man that he is would not have to turn to another cabinet chair. This is a man who believes he can do it all, without anyone.
Obama's message is we are all in this together. Hate to use a football team but the NY GIants won the last superbowl with the motto .. ALLin.
You know, I have never seen Obama as arrogant. I see him as confident and sure of himself.
There's a fine line between confident and arrogant...and I just feel like he's stepped over it. Obviously, his supporters don't feel that way, so I don't expect everyone to feel as I do.
To me, Donald Trump is arrogant and Obama is nowhere near that.
I see him as educated and experienced. He speaks to the masses, the people; he's warm, personable and more than able to relate with those from different backgrounds, furthermore, he doesn't repress a crowd, he enthuses them.
Mitt just smiled when one of the crowd, at his own event, who had genuine concerns about climate silence had his banner forced from him. He didn't even bother to address those concerns. And then talked about his willingness to change the status quo. Please. The man is an effigy of a wannabe leader.
But is that him or his teleprompter talking? I've always looked to a leader that could act fast and on his own (for the good of the whole) a leader shouldn't have to ask your opinion. He should already know your opinion. And act fast to protect and promote for the benefit of the country and it's people.
There was no teleprompter when he was in New Jersey earlier this week.

Thank GOD the teleprompter survived Sandy!
Here is a video of that moment

Do you think the teleprompter digs will go away in his second term?
Considering he will not be reelected, the teleprompter thing will be moot.
obama's body language and his vicious attack ads show a politician who knows he's on the ropes and vitriol is all he has left. No quality in his record to stand on and just recycling the same old promises from his first campaign that he didn't keep. If your husband broke as many promises to you as obama has to the American citizen, you would have divorced him long ago, I'm guessing.
Romney is showing more leadership more intelligence, more realism than obama will ever have. That's why the crowds are huge for him and enthusiastic. The undercurrents are saying that it's time to stick a fork in obama's presidency, cause he is done. If you are able to read between the lines, if you are willing to look with a balanced viewpoint, you will eventually come to the same conclusion. No one that is ahead, no one that is a statesman, would be as mean spirited and vicious as obama's campaign ads have portrayed. I know you will disagree, because there are none so blind as those who will not see, but come Tuesday, it will become crystal clear. Just be sure you have refilled your anti-depressant prescriptions!
when he hugs her and says "You're gonna be ok" shows what a real man he is. The contact that he shows her is over and beyond.
Thanks for the link UW.
What? If he's representing you then he needs to know what your wishes are. Politicians aren't psychics, they do not have powers of ESP.
What I noticed in the two videos:
1. Romney is back dressed in a suit and tie. Obama's wearing his Air Force One jacket -- casual
2. Romney seems subdued. I don't know if he was told to go for "gravitas" or if he's out of steam, or what.
3. I always look at the eyes and the facial expression. For awhile after the first debate, Romney was revved up and confident. Really different demeanor from today. This Mitt looks to me like pre-debates slightly uncomfortable with himself Mitt.
4. Almost the opposite for Obama. He has been the subdued one for weeks. Today, he finally seems to have found his voice again.
5. Agree with Wavegirl on different use of language. Tones are different, too. Obama seems finally engaged and positive about where we're going. Mitt here still going negative on Obama's failures.
One other thing (actually, the very first thing I noticed, which is why I started this thread)
The backdrop of supporters behind Romney. He's got a couple of guys in ties. He's got a couple of old people. He's got a veteran. He's got women. He's got a guy in a t-shirt.
Of course I know both campaigns are careful about the compostion of their backdrop.
This just seemed like forced integration to show diversity.
Also, not sure if it's in this video or another one I saw, but Romney walks in carrying BINDERS. I kid you not. I wonder if they are full of women?
rotflmao! Sounds like Faux News talking! lol Romney, the king of flip flopping and lying hasn't a chance of winning. And now with the the surfacing of ethic violations pounding on his door, Romney is done...

How does Obama have time to campaign and be on TV with so many issues going on?I've just been wondering how Obama allocates his time between business and campaigning. With turmoil overseas and problems in the U.S, I get a little upset seeing Obama on the Late Night Show or on TV shows. I'm thinking...

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on the other guy. Is it Mitt who has the secret agenda? I surely don't know. Perhaps,...

This will not turn out well for the left when it gains traction during midterm season, and it does help to back up reasons to not have voted for Hillary. Another reason why I hope they investigate her foundation, so obvious how shady she's always been with...

The two recent Presidential and one vice-presidential debates have made it abundantly clear that Obama and Biden can not defend their indefensible 4 year record of bad economic and domestic/foreign policies. They have been, during those debates, grasping at false narratives made more...
