Obama & Romney: Twin Sons of Different Mothers?

Recent polls show that the race between President Obama and Mitt Romney is getting tighter -- almost a dead heat in some areas of the country.  

I think I've figured out why that's happening: they have the same positions on so many things, its hard to tell them apart. 

Really - check it out:

On the economy:
On success:
  • President Obama tells us if people (and by people I mean corporations) are successful, they didn't do it on their own; governments built roads and infrastructure and the Internet, and they had teachers and and mentors along the way to help.
  • Mitt Romney tells Olympic athletes (who are people) if they're successful, they didn't do it on their own; communities (aka governments) built venues for them, and they had parents and brothers and sisters and coaches to help.
On health care:
  • President Obama passed Obamacare, which is modeled after Romneycare.
  • Mitt Romney assails Obamacare, but he started it all with Romneycare.
On foreign policy:
  • President Obama told everyone we’ll be out of Afghanistan by 2014.
  • Mitt Romney complains about Obama's timetable, but tells everyone we’ll be out of Afghanistan by 2014.
On gun control:
  • President Obama supports Second Amendment rights and doesn’t want to upset people with money by supporting any change in gun control laws.
  • Mitt Romney supports Second Amendment rights and doesn’t want to upset people with money by supporting any change in gun control laws.
On immigration:
  • President Obama wants to staple a green card to advanced degrees earned by immigrants, and has deported scads more illegal immigrants than any previous administration.
  • Mitt Romney complains about Obama's immigration policy, but says he wants to staple a green card to advanced degrees earned by immigrants.
On corporate welfare:
  • Under the Obama stimulus plans, many businesses received breaks and loans, and some were successful and some were not; some may have outsourced part of their business.
  • Under Bain Capital, lots of businesses outsourced, and many were successful and some were not.
Their children:
  • President Obama has all girls and they have not served in the military.
  • Mitt Romney has all boys and they have not served in the military.
On finances:
  • President Obama has raised well over $200 million dollars.
  • Mitt Romney has well over $200 million dollars.
See what I mean?
