Wood cutting with an electric miter saw

I have always wondered this and thought about it again today so i figured i would ask the pros.

When cutting a bevel in wood with an electric saw. Why does the bevel cut take longer to cut. It seems that its a tougher cut for the saw. I realize that the material becomes thicker when cut this way but i am pretty sure the thickness to time ratio doesnt jive up.
Another issue is the blade smoking whilst cutting at an angle. Even when the blade is brand new.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I suppose i could goggle it but that isn't any fun.

Travis, that is a very good idea!

It's just a clever handle.
