I have long held the belief that voters vote for the more handsome and charismatic candidate, acknowledging the advantage goes to the incumbent. ____________ That doesn't explain this election to me. Obama looked tired next to Romney. And Romney had perfect hair...and frankly I don't find him charismatic. Basically Obama was a better liar because he's such an awful person, he doesn't care what it takes to win. I don't get the "he's the person you'd want a beer with"...I wouldn't want to spend time socially with either. Although I wouldn't mind getting stock tips from Romney. Romney brought a plastic knife to a gun fight. ______________________________________ Let's be fair to Obama, though he may or may not be a better liar.There really was no proof in this election that he was the better liarObama never had to defend his lies. In fact the one time he was the press stepped in and said that he was not lying and that they had the proof with themOn the other hand, Romney was called a liar many times, when in fact he was not lying -- kind of hard to defend against thatNow this is not to say Romney was not a better liar or that Obama was not a more skilled liar, just there was no meaningful way to make a comparison the field that the two played on had absolutely nothing in common
