Salt Lake City Tribune – Endorses Obama!

Via: Sltrib

ROMNEY:

. . . first in his servile courtship of the tea party in order to win the nomination, and now as the party’s shape-shifting nominee.

From his embrace of the party’s radical right wing, to subsequent portrayals of himself as a moderate champion of the middle class, Romney has raised the most frequently asked question of the campaign:

“Who is this guy, really, and what in the world does he truly believe?”

.

If this portrait of a Romney willing to say anything to get elected seems harsh, we need only revisit his branding of 47 percent of Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, yet feel victimized and entitled to government assistance.

His job, he told a group of wealthy donors, “is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA:

And what of the president Romney would replace? For four years, President Barack Obama has attempted, with varying degrees of success, to pull the nation out of its worst financial meltdown since the Great Depression, a deepening crisis he inherited the day he took office.

In the first months of his presidency, Obama acted decisively to stimulate the economy. His leadership was essential to passage of the badly needed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Though Republicans criticize the stimulus for failing to create jobs, it clearly helped stop the hemorrhaging of public sector jobs. The Utah Legislature used hundreds of millions in stimulus funds to plug holes in the state’s budget.

The president also acted wisely to bail out the auto industry, which has since come roaring back. Romney, in so many words, said the carmakers should sink if they can’t swim.

***

CONCLUSION:

Therefore, our endorsement must go to the incumbent, a competent leader who, against tough odds, has guided the country through catastrophe and set a course that, while rocky, is pointing toward a brighter day.

The president has earned a second term.

Romney, in whatever guise, does not deserve a first.

personal thoughts:

1. Anyone care to lay odds that Ann is even more pissed than Willard (see photo)?

2. I expect if they haven’t done so already, his other ‘home-town’ papers, the Detriot Free Press and the Boston Globe, will follow suit.

Which would leave what, the ‘La Jolla Nickel Want Ads’?

luv it!
