I know it's really cool to hate both sides and call them exactly the same. It's almost as cool as being a democrat, but i don't see in this instance it being the same, what with Obamacare and the fiscal cliff and the enormous debt. It's night and day what both sides claim to want to do.

I agree with this.

Four major areas of concern I have with government:

1. Economy
2. Fiscal policy
3. Personal freedoms and Constitutional protections
4. Foreign policy and international relationships

In 3/4 of these Mitt is clearly better than Obama. On the fourth (personal freedoms and Constitutional protections), I suspect Mitt will be better but don't have hard evidence to support that belief.

On the Foreign policy side, I find it hard to believe that anyone could unintentionally do as bad as Obama.

There are a variety of others areas that we could compare in which Mitt comes out as the clear winner too:
A. Race relations
B. Divisiveness
C. Leadership
D. Bipartisanship
E. Etc.

I fail to conceive of a single presidential topic in which Obama beats Romney but am willing to concede that Obama beats Romney in things like fund raising, basketball skills, golf skills, etc.

I can think of areas in which they rank equal though.
