A Tale of Two Candidates: One Sounds Like a President, The Other Not So Much

It’s been a bit crazy on the Presidential campaign trail this week, but as we draw to a close we’d like to point out differences between two men who are giving off two very separate vibes.

We have Mitt Romney:

Speaking at a fundraiser in Charlotte, N.C., Mitt Romney reflected on the responsibility of being commander in chief. Via the pool report: 

I have been touched and humbled by people who I’ve met who’ve expected me to do — who expect me to do things that will improve their lives. I was at a coal mine yesterday, outside a coal mine, a group of miners, about 2,000 people gathered and one with tears in his eyes, I mean really emotional, said I need you to save my job and help my family. I need you to save my job. And it hit me how big the responsibility is. A rally last night, several thousand people in Ohio, and as I went along and met them one by one, again, you have to help us. You have to get the country on track. And I hear this time and again. And I feel how great the responsibility is and how much people are counting on me to get the job done, to win the White House and to get America back on track.

And then we have President Obama:

If President Barack Obama could have any “super power,” it would be the ability to speak any language.

Obama discusses a number of offbeat topics in an interview with KOB-FM in Albuquerque, N.M., that aired Friday, including his favorite music, red and green chili and some restaurant recommendations for his hometown of Chicago.

The president says he would “love to be able to speak any language,” even though “it might not come in handy to rescue folks from a burning building.” Obama says he’s a “big believer in making connections with people.”

Obama says Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love,” is a great song to “get my heart rate up,” and he also likes Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire and Jay-Z.

Asked his favorite chili, Obama says, “classic red.”

No wonder he is actively seeking out interviews with tabloid-like journalists from People Magazine and Entertainment Tonight, instead of meeting with the White House press corps.  If he’s not discussing his favorite chili, his press secretary is out discussing his favorite canine.

Which one sounds like a United States President to you?
