    I admire President Obama. I admire his intelligence, his competence, and his rationality and patience in the face of opponents who...well...let's just say they never quite signed on to the whole Earth being round thing. I find his attitudes and values similar to my own, and in many respects I find that he leads by example.

    Do you, Romney supporters, feel the same way about your candidate? Does he inspire you? Are his values a higher example of your own?

    I'm also curious, just in hindsight, whether you felt that way about George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Are those your ideal "Americans"? If you've changed your mind about them, have you reached any conclusions about why you failed to see what the other half of the country saw about them immediately?

    Returning to Romney, if you don't admire him, is it just that you hate Obama so much (three guesses why that hatred is so much more intense in the South) that anyone you think has a shot at beating him is acceptable?

    Was it the same story with Al Gore in 2000 - you just hated him so much that peace and prosperity were too high a price to pay for having a Democrat in the White House?

    Thanks for your input.

    Ok once a sane person asks this question, I might be inclined to answer.

    He had you from the moment he did that gay little wiggle dance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

    If someone admires either Romney or Obama there is something very wrong with them.
