Posted on 09/06/2012 12:25:47 PM PDT by Libertarian4Bush
A friend asked me for an unbiased and fair comparison of Obama and Romney on the issues. While I'm clearly frustrated that people don't educate themselves over the long-term, where can I find a "digest" that will allow someone to truly decide who best represents their interests?
Tell them to digest that.
Red X’s are vey hard to digest.
This site is pretty fair.
0bama is a muzzie, Romney is not.
Not sure how much bias this site has:

was looking at diffen.com - can’t tell if it has implicit bias... so used to seeing weasel words in our “news” outlets, y’know?
The first question is, what is objectivity?
My answer to that is, the opposite of subjectivity. But what is subjectivity?
Subjectivity is IMHO nothing other than belief in your own objectivity.
It is laudable to attempt to be objective, always understanding that you can never know that you actually are objective.
The best you can get by way of attempted objectivity is an open confession of the main reasons why you might want to believe what you do. So if you have multiple perspectives on a given question - in this case, the comparison/contrast between Obama and Romney - and for each of these multiple perspectives you have an analysis of the likely motives which might color that perspective, then you make up your mind, for yourself.
My analysis of the same information is unlikely to duplicate yours exactly, but that has to be accepted as a natural part of life. And does not prove that either particular one of us is biased."
seems to make a lot of excuses for The Won... :l
any more suggestions before I put something together?
