Official Media Endorsements Threads

As the population is nearly-evenly divided on Romney and Obama, as will be the many newspapers, websites, and magazines that issue endorsements every election season.

This thread can be a repository for them. Please share them, and we'll comment as the editorials pour in.

I ran across this one on the Reno Gazette-Journal. The very first one I've read this election season.

http://www.rgj.com/article/20121020/...nclick_check=1

Nevada needs a change now; elect Mitt Romney president
2:44 PM, Oct 20, 2012

The Gazette-Journal recommends a vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for president of the United States.

It wasn’t an easy decision. A recommendation against an incumbent can’t be taken lightly.

President Barack Obama inherited a ghastly mess when he took office in January 2009. He demonstrated a clear understanding in his inaugural address, when he stated, “That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened …”

Nevada was the state hit hardest by the great recession, and four years later, the state continues to lag well behind the others as the U.S. economy shows signs of slow improvement. Its unemployment rate remains worst in the nation; the foreclosure rate, while no longer No. 1, is still among the worst; and the tourism industry continues to struggle. And because of that, public services have been decimated and our schools, in particular, are failing to meet the needs of a state determined to diversify its economy.

However, while he had to contend with a Republican Party that was determined to deny him a second term at any cost, Obama cannot avoid the consequences of poor decisions and misplaced priorities.

Foremost among them was his early focus on an overreaching health-care reform plan that wasted 12 very valuable months of his and Congress’ time and cost him precious political capital. The manner in which the legislation was drafted violated Obama’s pledge to govern openly, and its passage — leveraged through a supermajority — served to further galvanize the partisan divide in Congress. Fear of the impact of that reform and the costs associated with it continue to play a major role in preventing businesses from hiring new employees at a time when nearly everyone agrees that jobs must be the president’s foremost goal.

A vote to re-elect Obama promises four more years of the same. In the two debates between the two candidates so far (a third, on foreign affairs, is scheduled for Monday), the president has shown little understanding of how his failures are affecting the nation, and he hasn’t offered any tangible proposals to change course.

That said, Romney is not without failings. The Republican candidate has shown a troubling willingness to shift his position on key issues, and the Romney who sat down with the Gazette-Journal’s Editorial Board in January did not appear to be the same one seen on the primary campaign trail, and that Romney seemed to be different than the one we saw at the two presidential debates held thus far.

But the United States, and Nevada, cannot afford four more years of the same. The change Obama promised four years ago is needed right now.

As president, Romney’s most important task will be to convince a recalcitrant Congress — including unhappy Democrats who will want to emulate the Republican blockade of the past few years — that there are good reasons to work with him. We’re hopeful that his willingness to shift positions is the hallmark of a consensus builder who can work across party lines to govern the country effectively and not political expedience.

In 2008, the RGJ warned that a vote for the little-known Obama was a gamble, albeit one that Americans should embrace. The country was in need of a course correction.

Based on our current fiscal condition, a still-weak economy and a Congress deeply divided along party lines, our next president will continue to face a daunting challenge, one that must be met for the good of the country. Four years later, we find ourselves in need of change yet again.

Romney must be the leader to get things moving.

An... interesting endorsement.

Really, it boils down to a single argument against the President and a single argument in favor of Romney. I fail to see much more to it.

(1.) That Obama's healthcare reform was pushed through Congress in ugly fashion.

(2.) Romney's shapeshifting is evidence of consensus building!

As for (1.), just about every piece of legislation pushed through Congress was done in horrendously ugly fashion. We just decided to pay attention to that with the healthcare bill.

As for (2.)... I don't even. lol. Flip-flopping is not a vice, apparently. Holy smokes.

I can see it. Nevada is in ruins. They see this choice as being between Obama + Republican House or Republican + Republican House, with the latter option 'getting more done.' And for Nevada, just about anything is better than the prospect of more gridlock.

That makes sense, if it were the argument the RGJ was making.

To my reading, they are not making that argument.

That's how I read this part of the editorial:

"As president, Romney’s most important task will be to convince a recalcitrant Congress — including unhappy Democrats who will want to emulate the Republican blockade of the past few years — that there are good reasons to work with him.

First one you've read? You didn't see the Tennessean came out for Romney a few days ago? They've endorsed the democratic candidate for president in every election since 1972. That's a pretty big endorsement. And I almost forgot. This is the newspaper that Al Gore used to work for.

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20...N01/310180040/

TENNESSEAN ENDORSEMENT

This has been a presidential election that should be held up as a cautionary lesson for the future.

The lesson? How low American politics can stoop, and how to avoid it ever happening again.

The 2012 presidential race is fraught with confusion and failed expectations, so much so that it is surprising that any reasonable voter would feel comfortable pressing the button for either President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney. What is downright infuriating is that, after four years of an Obama presidency and two years of campaigning and 22 televised debates by Romney, so many questions remain and it is difficult to discern what the next four years would look like with either man in charge.

Aside from 1860, when Abraham Lincoln took charge of the nation on the brink of civil war, and 1932, when Americans devastated by the Great Depression turned to Franklin Roosevelt for hope, few elections have been so critical to the country. In 2012, the United States faces crippling debt; seemingly endless military conflicts and terror threats; an aging population; and sweeping workforce and geopolitical changes that threaten to turn our society upside down.

America needs strong leadership; yet, our leaders in Washington have seldom looked more impotent. The Democratic Obama administration and Republican leaders in Congress have butted heads for four years, and the American people have little to show for it. In that period, only two major initiatives, the Affordable Care Act and Dodd-Frank financial reform, have passed, and Gov. Romney promises to roll back both if elected.

And we look for a signal from either of the candidates that he will be the one who leads red and blue states into to an honest dialogue that will move America forward with its founding principles intact.

On issue after issue, however, Obama’s and Romney’s positions shift or lack assuring specificity:

Military and foreign policy

The president deserves credit for taking out much of al-Qaida’s leadership and ending the Iraq War on schedule. Prospects in Afghanistan are far less certain. And while Mr. Obama may have reassured a lot of people about the response to the Libyan consulate attack in Tuesday’s debate, there is too much dissension in his own administration about the right approach to terrorism.

Gov. Romney’s extensive business experience seems to have done nothing to prepare him for the world stage. His behavior at the London Olympics and on his European tour may be effective when you’re everyone’s boss, but not when you’re their guest. Of more concern is his tenor in regard to Iran. When pressed, he calls for the same measures as the Obama administration has taken, but his saber rattling could contribute to destabilization in the Middle East and bring a war the U.S. neither wants nor needs.

Social issues

What will happen to the ability of women to control their health decisions and to achieve workplace equity under a Romney administration?

It depends on what day it is.

Romney has famously flip-flopped on abortion rights, the need for Planned Parenthood, access to contraceptives and health care reform in general, which disproportionately affects single mothers and lower-income women. During his bruising primary campaign he veered to the right; in the debates, he has swung back to his moderate stances as governor of Massachusetts.

The Romney who was governor reflected the attitudes shared by a majority of Americans; this is where he should stay, if elected, and resist pressure from the “tea-vangelicals” in his party who want to take this country back to the repressed 1950s.

President Obama has established a fairly clear and popular record on women’s social issues, as well as on his desire to protect the government safety net for underserved Americans. And more than Gov. Romney, he appears to understand that the nation must greatly improve the education of its children, improving their outcomes so that the burden on the safety net will lessen in a sensible way.

Health care, entitlements

With health care, we well know where Mr. Obama stands. The Affordable Care Act probably will be regarded as his landmark achievement, and for all of the criticism of the law, it will do much good for millions of Americans.

The sad failure came in the way the bill became law with no consensus. Democrats and Republicans will bitterly point fingers to this day about the broken negotiations, the partisan posturing and the supposed cost to the American people. But no legislation of this scale should become the law of the land without some meeting of minds. That is why, 2½ years and a Supreme Court victory later, the law remains at risk of repeal.

And like it or not, that failure is ultimately the responsibility of President Obama. It is he who should have insisted that the bill have bipartisan support. The well-being of uninsured and underinsured Americans clings to uncertainty because, in the end, the president used the blunt end of his executive power, albeit for a good cause.

Gov. Romney, meanwhile, is using the ill will over the health law to sharpen his election chances. We know that he actually has supported the very health reforms he says he will repeal, because his Massachusetts “Romneycare” was the model for “Obamacare.” Again, he should lead constructively by returning to his Massachusetts political roots.

Neither candidate has laid out a comprehensive vision for gaining control over the costs of Medicare or ensuring the future of Social Security. It’s true that presidents before them have tried and failed. But endless bickering, whether one candidate or the other is out to “destroy” Medicare, is counterproductive and simply untrue.

If either candidate was honest with the American people on this matter, he would announce that Medicare is so important that, regardless of which man wins, the other will agree now to work with the winner to fix it.

The economy

The term “elephant in the room” could have been coined for this moment. Because as important as foreign policy, social issues, immigration and the environment continue to be, this election hinges on Americans’ fear of a European-style economic collapse. No other issue will matter more, and to more voters, on Election Day.

The next president must be the one with the best chance to get the crushing, $16 trillion national debt under control, coupled with the more immediate need of enabling a vibrant job market.

It is because the economy is paramount that The Tennessean endorses Gov. Mitt Romney for president.

President Obama and Gov. Romney have different jobs plans. Yet, neither can actually create jobs, despite what they say in speeches and debates. Mr. Romney has the business experience that gives him better understanding of the needs of real job creators.

President Obama’s steps to get spending under control and reduce the debt are too tentative, and again hark back to his inability to possess the leadership to break the partisan gridlock in Congress.

That said, there is real fear that a Romney administration, including his more conservative running mate, Paul Ryan, would go too far with austerity measures that could rip the social safety net. For that reason, the hope is that Romney, as president, would be a moderate influence, bringing both parties together on a debt-reduction plan that is firm but fair.

President Obama’s election and his presidency have been historic. He is a black man who was elected by a solid majority to lead a nation with a history of racism. He ended a war begun on false pretenses that took thousands of American lives. He made it possible for gays to serve openly and honorably in the military. He eliminated the man responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans on Sept. 11, 2001.

However, for all his efforts, ranging from the stimulus package to green-energy development, to bring us out of recession, he has never found the key. He has generally made poor choices of the people needed to get the job done, such as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. And the number of jobs created during his term simply has not kept up with demand.

Should President Obama, as some suggested, have devoted his early political capital to jobs and debt reduction and pursuing Wall Street criminals, instead of health reform? Time will tell. But it’s clear whatever shaky bridges were burned in the push for health reform only emboldened Republicans to oppose his subsequent economic proposals. That has rendered much of his presidency ineffective.

Barack Obama was elected in 2008 with a call for hope and change. Perhaps the change he spoke of could only come with the help of Mitt Romney.

Gov. Romney: This endorsement was not an easy decision. You owe the American people more details about how you will keep taxes low, preserve social programs and build up the military, all while reducing the debt. You must be your own man, and not kowtow to special interests whose millions helped propel you to the Republican nomination.

Be the man who governed Massachusetts, and you’ll reunite America.

Not really. I just really like endorsements.

They're snap-shots of all the conversations we've had on this board for the past four years.

What make editors choose one candidate over the others, per their explanation, are always fun.

Ohio's biggest newspaper came out in favor of Obama today.

http://www.cleveland.com/opinion/ind..._leadersh.html

On the basis of sound leadership, re-elect Obama: endorsement editorial
Published: Saturday, October 20, 2012, 6:00 PM

Four years ago, this newspaper's editorial board enthusiastically endorsed Barack Obama, then a young senator from Illinois, for president of the United States. As much as we admired the long and courageous service of his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, we believed that the nation needed fresh ideas and the fresh start that a leader with Obama's charisma and only-in-America backstory could provide.

Today, we recommend President Obama's re-election. He has led the nation back from the brink of depression. Ohio in particular has benefited from his bold decision to revive the domestic auto industry. Because of his determination to fulfill a decades-old dream of Democrats, 30 million more Americans will soon have health insurance. His Race to the Top initiative seeded many of the education reforms embodied in Cleveland's Transformation Plan. He ended the war in Iraq and refocused the battle to disrupt al-Qaida and its terrorist allies. He ordered the risky attack inside Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden.

And yet our endorsement this year comes with less enthusiasm or optimism.

Obama has changed -- and it's more than gray hair. The unifier of 2008 now engages in relentless attacks on his Republican challenger, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The big dreamer of 2008 offers little in the way of a second-term agenda. There is a world-weariness unseen four years ago.

In fairness, the Obama of 2008 often warned his swooning audiences that change would be slow and painstaking. The four years since then surely have been far more trying than he or almost anyone could have imagined.

We wish President Obama had used this campaign to showcase a more substantial vision for the many challenges that still confront America. The nation needs to get more people back to work. It needs to get its financial house in order, reform its tax code and streamline -- though not gut -- regulation in order to reassure business and speed recovery. It needs to invest in infrastructure, education and job training. It needs to expand exports and engage the world.

Not only do we still believe this president can do those things, we think he can do it with policies most likely to lift Ohio and Ohioans. Obama's leadership has made a difference when it mattered most. His stimulus package helped avert an even worse economic collapse and initiated investments in education, manufacturing and green energy that should yet pay dividends. His commitment to a balanced path toward deficit reduction won't please the most zealous members of either party, but it makes sense for the nation.

Much of what beset America during Obama's first term lay outside his direct control. The bobsled slide into recession was in full motion when he took office. The economic calamity has been global; recovery, sporadic and weak. Obama's attempts to reach across the aisle politically were met with unbending resistance, even belligerence.

And yet, Obama has often been his own worst enemy.

On stimulus and health care, in particular, he ceded too much freedom to doctrinaire Democrats on Capitol Hill and failed to engage the American people. When Republicans regained control of the House in 2010, he was slow to show that he had heard the angry cry from voters. Presented with a balanced plan to reduce the deficit by a bipartisan commission he appointed, he offered only a tepid embrace. He needlessly alienated business leaders whose buy-in the nation needs to restore prosperity.

This litany of missed opportunities, as much as the grim economic statistics that have become America's unacceptable new normal, left us sorely tempted to endorse Gov. Romney this fall. Like President Obama, he is a man of public achievement and private honor. He was born to wealth and power, but used those advantages well: building a prosperous business; rescuing the 2002 Winter Olympics; being a leader in his church and serving as an effective governor. It is the track record of a man who gets things done. No wonder so many frustrated Americans appear eager to elect him.

But which Romney would they elect? The rather liberal one who ran for the Senate in 1994? The pragmatic governor? The sharply conservative candidate of this year's GOP primaries? The reborn moderate of recent weeks?

All politicians change positions over time -- Obama in 2008 shifted his position on health care reform more to the center. But Romney's frequent changes raise questions about his core principles and make his lack of policy details all the more troubling. They make you wonder if he would stand up to the more extreme elements in his own party, especially to the House Republicans who undercut Ohioan John Boehner's attempts to negotiate a deficit and debt deal.

Romney's tendency to bluster on foreign policy provides more cause for doubt. With tens of thousands of young Americans still in harm's way in Afghanistan, the United States cannot afford to be drawn into new wars without clear national interests at stake or to sap its resources in further open-ended conflicts. The Benghazi killings reveal the risks of an "Arab Spring" in which terrorists have gained new weaponry and new freedom to operate. But these challenges require inventive diplomacy and international engagement, not slogans or swagger.

Obama has shown that he favors engagement over bluster, and practical solutions over easy bromides. That's what the country needs.

Consider a defining moment early in Obama's first term -- one with special resonance in Ohio: The outgoing Bush administration had used TARP funds to throw a lifeline to General Motors and Chrysler, but the two automakers were still at death's door. They wanted more cash and offered vague promises to change their ways. Public opinion opposed another bailout. Romney urged the companies to file for traditional bankruptcy -- at a time when private-sector credit was frozen even for healthy firms.

Obama told the companies to restructure using the Bankruptcy Court and set conditions for government financing: GM's chairman had to go. Excess plants and dealerships had to close. Chrysler had to be bought out by Fiat. Contracts had to be renegotiated.

It was unpopular but gutsy. And it worked. Ohioans today are making cars in Lordstown and Toledo. They're making parts and steel for Ford, Honda and other automakers. They're back on the job.

That's leadership that deserves a chance to finish the job. Re-elect President Obama.

The endorsement, in the heart of Ohio, seems to be largely motivated by Obama's work in the auto bailouts.
