Is this paper a conservative paper?

Nope liberal, and they endorsed Obama in '08

Ok just checking. :)

Maybe someone can do an ad featuring this paper and the DesMoines paper that have endorsed Romney, and play it opposite all the pics the dems will be showing with the Annointed One and Gov Christie walking together in NJ. :biggrin-new:

It doesn't look good when even the lib papers endorse Romney (anything not good for O is fine with me).

11-01-2012, 09:28 PM
The Orlando Slantinel (liberal Florida paper) endorsed Romney too.

; Obama unworthy commander-in-chief


This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent at best on the economy - though a more careful analysis shows what can only be a perverse and willful attempt to destroy our prosperity. Back in January 2008, Barack Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that under his cap-and-trade plan, "If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them." He added, "Under my plan ... electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." It was also in 2008 that Mr. Obama's future Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, famously said it would be necessary to "figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe" - $9 a gallon.

Yet the president now claims he's in favor of oil development and pipelines, taking credit for increased oil production on private lands where he's powerless to block it, after he halted the Keystone XL Pipeline and oversaw a 50 percent reduction in oil leases on public lands.

These behaviors go far beyond "spin." They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation's economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie "Dr. Strangelove," would be disastrous.

Candidate Obama said if he couldn't fix the economy in four years, his would be a one-term presidency.

Mitt Romney is moral, capable and responsible man. Just this once, it's time to hold Barack Obama to his word. Maybe we can all do something about that, come Tuesday.

Worcester Telegram and Gazette | Worcester, Mass.

Romney for President

As governor of Massachusetts, Mr. Romney balanced the state budget through a combination of closing tax loopholes, raising fees and cutting state spending. Critics are right when they charge that some of his actions as governor shifted the financial burden onto cities and towns, but the fact remains that Mr. Romney was willing and able to use his political capital to make hard choices in a state dominated by Democrats. Similarly difficult choices will face whoever occupies the White House next. We believe Mr. Romney is far more likely to make those choices. | Read Full Endorsement » (http://www.telegram.com/article/20121028/NEWS/110289814/1020/opinion#.UI00GMWHIjw)

Romney’s fundamental priority is to get the economy growing and creating jobs again.

Endorsement: The Case for Mitt Romney for President

But ultimately, we endorse Romney because he, unlike Obama, understands that jobs are a creation of business, not of government. And that to encourage job growth, we need policies that incent business to grow and provide it with a stable environment for that growth. In the end, we need moderation, not ideology, to facilitate an economic recovery.

Romney Will Spur Confidence to Boost the Economy

In contrast, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has a record of bipartisan success. During his tenure as governor of Massachusetts, with Democrats firmly in control of the state Legislature, Romney produced landmark health care reform that earned bipartisan support and stands as a model for the nation. Bringing that mindset to Washington and breaking the stalemate there could go a long way toward resolving critical issues that threaten our nation’s future. | Read Full Endorsement » (http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/courier_times_news/opinion/editorials/romney-will-spur-confidence-to-boost-the-economy/article_dba969cd-8a5f-5810-ae86-41f65c2ccae4.html)

Forum Editorial: Romney for Future of Nation

Obama promised a “post-partisan” presidency. While he faced a hostile Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, he did little to moderate the hostility. He failed to build relationships and alliances with key Democrats in Congress. He tried to ram his agenda down their throats without the consultation even Democrats demand of their president. When he was successful with his signature accomplishment – the byzantine Affordable Care Act – his support in the country eroded. | Read Full Endorsement » (http://www.inforum.com/event/article/id/378621/group/Opinion/)

America trusted a "hope and change" candidate, it didn't work, and we're suffering the consequences. Now we've got a tested leader with a proven track record standing before us - Mitt Romney - and it's his time to inspire Americans to greatness.

Romney for president
Copyright 2012: Houston Chronicle | Sunday, October 21, 2012 | Updated: Sunday, October 21, 2012 11:53am

The Chronicle's backing of Barack Obama in 2008 broke a 44-year string of endorsing Republican candidates for president. Like so many others, we were captivated by the Illinois senator's soaring rhetoric and energized by his promise to move American politics beyond partisan gridlock and into an era of hope and change.

It hasn't happened. Four years later, President Obama's deeds have failed to match his words, much less his specific vows to cut the national debt by half and bring the nation's unemployment rate to 6 percent. As Texans, it is a particular vexation that this president's attitude toward the interests of our state has occasionally bordered on contempt, particularly in decisions relating to the NASA budget and the energy sector. The hurtful symbol of this attitude of insensitivity to Texans' feelings was the administration's choice to deny Space City's bid to become home to one of the retired space shuttles.

We do not believe four more years on the same plodding course toward economic recovery is the best path forward for Texas or the nation. And so we endorse the Republican team, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, in the belief that they can do better by Texas and the nation.
