Alison, I have no party so I do not subscribe to "tit for tat", rah-rah hiss boom ba football-esque politics. I am no fan of Romney, and even a lesser fan of Obama. It is a fact that most all anchors read from a teleprompter - and are chosen on the basis of their voice. I would prefer the president was not chosen on the same basis. If a president, presidential candidate chooses to read from a teleprompter, bully for them. Niether Obama nor Romney can hold a candle to the manner in which many actors can deliever (while reading out loud) Shakespeare. Which leaves - substance, like I said.

DB.yes, I am fully aware that most presidential candidates and presidents do not write, edit, revise and soley approve their own speeches. However, some in history did write and/or contribute to the lions share of their own speeches. Either way, some politicans trully are very good public speakers, actually do know their subjects, and can answer more than 2 questions in an hours time. It is irrelevant whether one agrees w the answer. I personally find it irritating the way Obama babbles on when asked a question. The more he talks the fewer questions he will have to answer - or is that just the fault of the medium - time??

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I don't think Obama is particularly a good public speaker. His intonation and cadence kind of grate on me. But, Bush's did , too.


The movie is playing here, now. Freakin' weird. I've never heard of or seen a politcal ploy if this nature. Truly, what is politics coming to?

Frankly I haven't heard about the movie. So does it play in theaters? Because I don't think I've seen it. I don't like and watch (pre)election movies, ads and clips in general, because I do think they are biased (and show either just pros or just cons). The only exception I kinda like is JibJab (if it can be called "movie" though).

I listen to people from Canada and England and such to try and paint a picture of their impressions of the US, but they are probably being nice - I wonder what people in other countries honestly feel about this crap. Of course they aren't directly concerned and don't see a lot of it like the ads, but I sometimes wonder if our political system isn't becoming barbaric in appearance from the outside. Come to think of it, much of it is barbaric in appearance from the inside too...

I'll check my local ones out of curiosity, but I could swear I haven't seen it couple days ago. I truly wonder how much money can you make on such a movie (since that's what most movies are made for anyway). I'd expect not much.

To be honest I find it even more embarrassing when the candidates are throwing the dirt at each other within their own party trying to be picked as a final candidate. This is true for reps as well as dems.

hmm. I found it in the theater here, only it says "release date 7 Sept". I am guessing they mean - when they will show it. When was it released?

Faceman there have been duels fought over politics in our history.
I think we might just be more civilised only now we slay each other verbally.
Hve you ever seen how japanese or Korean lawmakers break out in fist fights during discussions?
In England they get pretty brutal verbally during parliament discussion.
I wouldn't trade our system for thier.
We have far more control with our system than the voters in Canada or England or Israel for that matter.
They spend a lot of time making coalitions instead of legislating. Shalom
