Have you read an available biography of Romney and Obama?
Some say that knowing who you are voting for (or against) is important. Others vote a straight party ticket, no matter who that party's candidates are across the board. Some just go with the ad from whatever source made the deepest impression pro or con. A few are sitll waiting for the TV debates even though debating before a national audience has its limitations. Both leading candidates have been around for some time. It shouldn't have to be a mystery as to what their values are and how they have performed in the past. How will you decide the facts?
I read Scott's on Romney. I found it somewhat sensationalized, but what would you expect of a bio cranked out specifically to take advantage of the sales opportunity of this election season?
"The Amateur," on Obama, is a pretty good read. It still suffers from the same stretch as the first.
You can't get good bios for practicing pols. They're all affected by the pressure of current events and living persons with interests in controlling public information. Historians will start to write them in a generation or two. It really does take that long for the dust to settle.
I like reading and learning about things I don't know. them two whole life is on television , radio and from that and the web I, can write a book on them
I haven't read either. I do know that most of their policies are the same. The only difference might be social issues, which I believe should be handled at the state and local level.
