We believe Romney will help this nation find the political will to address the challenges with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Wed like to see him exercise equal fiscal discipline at the Pentagon, whose budget has grown 50 percent in 10 years and exceeds that of the next 10 largest nations combined.

The greatest threat to our national defense is not the size of our military, but the ever-escalating size of our national debt. We must get government spending under control, across the board.
President Obama is a decent man who took office with the nation facing an economic precipice. But even he predicted he would be a one-term president if he failed to turn things around.

We believe the best chance to get America back working again is to elect Mitt Romney. Thats why we endorse him for president.

Now the October 25, 2012 - Detroit News endorses Mitt Romney, not Barack. In an editorial titled Mitt Romney for President, the paper lays out the case. Two key passages:

Hope and change are still what Americans are seeking. This time, Republican challenger and Michigan native Mitt Romney offers the best hope of changing the nation's fate.

Romney brings credible plan.

The Keynesian approach has not worked. Despite an $830 billion stimulus and increased annual spending, the economic recovery is the weakest in post-World War II history. Investors remain on the sidelines, afraid to put their money into job creating projects because of the uncertainty about future tax and regulatory policy.

Had Obama done as well with the rest of the economy, it would be hard to deny him a second term.

There is a good reason newspaper endorsements are on the opinion pages. They're opinions.

What this paper printed was just factually incorrect and shows how effective the propaganda that "the stimulus didn't work" has been. The stimulus did work and is confirmed by both the CBO and private economists. The problem that a $788 billion stimulus, spread over two years, with 40% tax-cuts, couldn't overcome a 9% drop in GDP.

Of course it is, and you have your "opinion". And in their opinion, they are endorsing Romney.

Default FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL Flips From 2008, Endorses Romney

That Hope and Change thing is hard to sell when you have a RECORD of failure!:

Sun Sentinel endorses Mitt Romney for president - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com

Brush away all the rhetoric, all the vitriol, all the divisiveness from the presidential campaign. To most Americans, only one thing matters the economy.


Four years into Barack Obamas presidency, economic growth is sputtering. Family incomes are down. Poverty is up. Business owners are reluctant to assume risk in the face of unending uncertainty. Many are holding on by their fingernails, desperate for signs of an economic recovery that will help them provide for themselves, their employees, their customers and their communities.


When President Obama came into office in 2009, the economy was in freefall and though untested, he inspired us with his promise of hope and change. Now, four years later, we have little reason to believe he can turn things around.


So while we endorsed Obama in 2008, we recommend voters choose Republican Mitt Romney on Nov. 6.

Bring it on!

Let's face it...does anyone vote for a guy because a paper endorses him? On personal level, I don't think they do. However, when all these papers are endorsing Romney over Obama...it gives the nation the feel that everyone is heading that way.

Polls be damned...I think Romney's Victory is going shock people.

Sun Sentinel is owned by the right wing company, The Tribune Company, which also owns WSFL. It is in the middle of expanding beyond Broward County and trying to attract South Florida conservatives. It was a business decision, as typical for republican strategists.
