Do you know more about politics and current events than your SO?

I do but i think it's cause i have an office job where i spend most of the day in front of my computer & stream NPR all day.

  • Yes, my hubby is always working and doesnt ever have time to watch TV or read the newspaper. He's last deployment he was surprised when I told him Obama was running. I usually keep him up to speed on things.

  • I guess it depends on which area or level we're talking. We both have our "specialties" so to speak. LOL

  • OH FOR SURE! He could care less. He loves not getting involved. He says he doesn't want to be bothered by any of it. He would be happy living on a lone mountain top with no running water or electricity. He really does not want to be bothered by the outside world, especially politics. He does vote though. He does his own personal research, which i admire. He never watches TV, never watched debates or ever sees any kind of propaganda. He's an honest voter, but hates politics. He always lets out a big SIGH & rolls his eyes when i start babbling about anything political.

  • Depends on the issue... He is briefed on many military/international issues daily. Things I usually won't hear about till the news reports on themdays/ weeks/months later... lol... Plus, his secretary keeps Fox and CNN on the tele's in the front offices.. He will text me and say, hey did you hear........ But usually I am the one texting him... lol..

  • No, I think we're both pretty well informed... And thankfully, we both have the EXACT same political views. Considering how strongly I feel about politics, we'd have some major issues if we didn't, heh.

  • We're probably 60/40 with me knowing more. He doesn't spend a lot of time on the computer and he doesn't watch much tv. We discuss what I find interesting and have gone over all the propositions and current political races. We pretty much are aligned politically except he was going to vote for Whitman (he was delusional for a few days).. but I changed his mind.

  • In general, yes. Specialized, he pays more attention to the parts that concern him directly like FCC issues, and I really don't pay more attention to that than what comes up in the regular media.
