    How often do you compliment the other candidate?

    Often times I find some things I actually like about the other candidate. There's always the urge to just dismiss it as it's usually trivial but half the time I give credit where credit is due.

    Re: How often do you compliment the other candidate?

    I certainly do though I don’t think I have done it much with Romney. I think the things that Romney and I agree on are such universal things that few people would disagree, such as minorities should have the right to vote. I assume he believes that. I am sure there is some substantive stuff I agree with Romney on that I just can’t think of at the moment. I agreed with Bush on immigration for the most part. I agree with Ron Paul on just about everything related to foreign policy.

    I also have no problem disagreeing with my candidate. I disagree with Obama on many things which is why I am voting Green party. But even with them I disagree on gun control.

    I had to select "other" in your poll because I've only complimented Obama for one thing: He followed the procedures established by Bush to implement our departure from Iraq.

    Everything else he's done during his Presidency has been either useless or bad.

    I complimented Obama once. First President to have a brewery.

    I only compliment people when they finish their job properly. I don't do compliments for half-ass efforts, failure or cute phrases spoken to those who would still buy into all that s**t.

    Yes.


    There is no percentage, I don't keep track. If they do something well, I laud it.

    Re: How often do you compliment the other candidate?

    I would have to vote 0%, because I think it ought to be well-established by now that politicians are all lying, conniving, sociopathic, heartless, soulless sycophants to corporate and other interests. So I tend not to compliment any of them.

    They're all the "other candidate" to me. that said, I give credit where credit is due whether it's good, or bad.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: How often do you compliment the other candidate?

    Define "the other candidate"? I am neither a dem nor a Rep. I do not support one candidate or the the other. Sure, I will vote for Romney, but that is not actually support. But from my outside view, that is because Obama is a failure, supports policies I do not like and has acted in an unconstitutional way, not because I like, support or even believe in Romney. I am not a Libertarian, so I don't really support their candidate. Other than that, what little I know about the other "independents" are that they are mostly supporters of even greater measures from the left or right in one specialized area or another.

    There are no candidates supporting an agenda with my beliefs. The right has more than the left in some cases, but then, most of the left are, imo, socialists. A philosophy that I find offensive, contrary to natural order and a great evil that is the enemy of mankind. I actually support quite a few ideas and goals of the left, however, their current trend of using socialism, or a derivative there of, to meet those goals means that I cannot, in anyway, support them. The ends do not justify the means, and if you use the wrong means, you don't get the ends that you desire.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Re: How often do you compliment the other candidate?

    In my mind, you do not ever Compliment OR Denegrate the opposiing Political Candidate. It is my opinion that a campaign should be all about who YOU are, what YOU believe, what YOU think should be done, and how YOU will work to get it done. The minute that you start talking to me about your opponent is the minute that I start wondering what it is you're trying to hide from me, or to keep me from knowing about YOU.
