U.S. President Barack Obama and his opponent Mitt Romney have been doing something out of the ordinary lately... praising each other. In preparing for this week's presidential debate, both candidates have been complimenting each other's oratory skills... Obama told supporters in Nevada he wants to make sure to keep the debate about the issues, not fancy one liners. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SAYING: "No, no, Governor Romney, he is a good debater. I am just OK. But, what I am most concerned about, is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working Americans..." Obama will stay in Nevada prepping until Wednesday's debate in Denver... Republican opponent Romney, who is home in Massachusetts, has been practicing also. Romney comes into the debate with poor poll figures after a series of gaffes in the past weeks.
