For me, on purely a personal and reactionary level, Romney reminds me of the guy who ran a company I worked for when I was younger. He was a kid born to a father who built the business and he inherited the whole thing. Pretty big operation. He had a Harvard MBA and the weatherman haircut too.. and the same patronizing, fake smile that Romney ( to me ) seems to have.
You know, when I was getting my degree and had to do all these Power Point Presentations and be all fakey fake and take classes on how to present oneself in the career, it made me feel like the corporate world removes a certain human side of our character and we have to do stuff we don't like or feel good doing. I am pro business, but I don't like certain aspects of it. So I hear what you are saying, in the corporate world it is like that, and University "prepares" us to go into the fake world and be fake to everybody to get that job, that promotion or whatever.
I think this is the meaning of the idea of the "empty suit".

From what I've seen, the way Romney won is that he out-manned Obama, and Obama (call him blinky) lost it in relation to Romney's... virility, which by compare might have made Obama feel somewhat uncomfortable with his potentially hidden gayness..?
Either that or it was the sudden change in elevation for Obama, but it's as if Romney did something to Obama's ego which made him appear like a freshman senator instead of a President.

Sour grapes. Obama bit the big enchilada. Keep your fingers crossed. Maybe Romney will suck next time. Then you can play "boo-yah" and do a happy dance in our faces.
ah, Beezzer :-)
I can't speak for Antonia - but I'm not in this for the happy dance moment
some of us take this stuff seriously - and for us it's not about one-upmanship
is it for you?
heheheh he took the day off because he thought clobbering Romney would be a walk in the park....or maybe it was just too cold in Colorado for a game of golf.
As if Obama didn't take us into Libya without Congressional approval, and on the whim of the French.

A day late and a few million too short near 67 million Americans watched last nite debates, Obamas audience there around 12,000.
Then maybe a few million more listened todays sound bites.
Too little too late.

End up this guy?
And I would just add that you don't have to be serious when discussing serious topics.
It's all good.
