We Recommend Mitt Romney for President
Dallas Morning News, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Muguy, 9/29/2012 7:27:38 PM

Barack Obama will forever be a historic, as well as historical, figure in American life. Candidate Obama, an orator of great skill and cadence, might have overcome everything and put the U.S. on a brighter path. President Obama, unfortunately, fell short of the challenge. We see evidence of Obama’s shortcomings in his re-election campaign, a relentlessly negative push to disqualify his opponent instead of standing on his accomplishments.

Comments:
This is a surprise coming for a generally conservative-bashing paper.

Well, this makes my day.

I pulled up AOL this a.m. and HuffPo had a headline: "Ann Romney worried about Mitt's mental health". Based on her saying that, if he's elected, that's what she'd worry about the most because the job is so emotionally taxing. It was a clear answer but they got the sound byte they could twist.

It was coupled with another story that pulled some obscure thing out of his tax returns and turned it into something they wanted to be potentially damaging. Just like everyone figured they'd do -- oh yes, provide them with 10 years of tax returns they can twist and turn against you with the ignorant.

So, all that to say, I've been kind of down in the dumps about the election today. This is heartening.

The only recommendation a sane and fair paper could make.

Still, surprising, isn't?

I must be living in an alternate universe, because I still haven't heard or seen "an orator of great skill and cadence" in describing Obama.

That's a lie like the rest of him.

FTA:

Obama’s Democratic supporters would argue that no one could have succeeded in what he inherited, that the nation’s problems were far more severe than anyone could handle in four years.

We respectfully disagree. On the central issue that will define his presidency — a stalled U.S. economy weighed down by crushing annual deficits and accumulated debt — Obama showed himself to be less leader than follower. While he expended his political capital on new government programs, unemployment stayed at debilitating heights.

For that reason, this newspaper recommends Republican challenger Mitt Romney for president.

We see evidence of Obama’s shortcomings in his re-election campaign, a relentlessly negative push to disqualify his opponent instead of standing on his accomplishments. His campaign has worn voters’ patience thin by constantly blaming predecessor George W. Bush for “the mess he left behind.”

Cleaning up that mess, however large, was what Americans trusted to Obama.


Thwap.

This, on the heels of Thursday's special edition of Saturday Night Live's frank treatment of Zippy's failures, might hint that the MSM's expect a defeat and want to be on record as backing the winning side.

Dollars to donuts, the orders were issued from on high to these leftists that if they wanted to avoid layoffs and see their newspaper survive, then they'd better be praying Mitt Romney wins because four more years of the Obama economy would kill off their newspaper for sure.

The Dallas Morning News is still a relentlessly biased, left-wing rag, despite this shocking endorsement.

Perhaps the DMN editorial staff has taken another look at their plunging subscription rates, and decided to feign some degree of impartiality....

....but I don't think so.

Note how they still manage to work in insults of both social conservatives and the TEA Party into their "endorsement."

The best thing that could happen for Dallas (and for honest journalism in Texas) is if the Dallas Morning News were to fold. Perhaps having to work REAL jobs might introduce these DMN hacks to some of the people they so happily and frequently disparage.

In a state where it doesn't matter and a city where the majority of their revenue comes from Republicans and conservatives.

And now, behind the scenes, they will move heaven and earth to get Zero re-elected and as many down ballot democrats as they can.

These people are liberal democrats through and through. I've watched them since I was old enough to know what politics is all about.

Cancelled my subscription in 1993 and encouraged everyone I know to do the same. I've bashed them at every opportunity, just like they bash Republicans and conservatives at every opportunity.

Since you can't believe anything any major newspaper in America writes, why believe this? Trust me, they don't mean it. They are simply looking at revenue.

FTA: Candidate Obama, an orator of great skill and cadence,... Sorry, but I just can't get past this "canned" description. He is good at reading a teleprompter - he is not a great orator!!!!!

If you want good oratory skills, attend a Toast Master's Club meeting. Obama's oratory skill is a myth. If he could speak easily and coherently when not using a teleprompter, then one could grade his skill. Okay, I'll give him a passing grade in "reading" - except he didn't know the difference between Marine Corps and Marine corpse.

My BA is in English (major) and a Public Speaking (minor). Reading a teleprompter is not a skill that is graded in Public Speaking courses that I'm aware of.

A small victory, but a victory nonetheless. It may encourage others in key swing states to do likewise.

But I suggest the following improvement in their article: "a TelePrompTer reader of great chin lift and cadence".

Some seem to be ignoring the most important thing about this endorsement. Its effect on Dems and Independents/Decline to States. It could give them second and third thoughts about Obit, especially if they were already getting cold feet re his reelection.

I believe we have to be careful about viewing everything through our prism. We know what we want. We should be happy about anything like this that could sway some Dems and the undecideds and Independents.

This is my home turf.

The Dallas Morning News may be capitalizing on the self-destruction campaign by it's principal competition in the DFW market, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Just as CNN seems to be trying to distinguish itself from MSNBC, the DMN may be trying to distinguish itself from the FWST.

The greater DFW population is overwhelmingly center-right politically, but if either paper would commit to keeping bias on the editorial page it would blow the other one away.

A leftwing editorial policy might be a pleasant comic relief, much like a neighborhood Obama-Biden yard sign or an Obama bumper sticker on a disabled Chevy Volt alongside the airport freeway. But a leftwing spin on the "hard news" page is regarded much like US and/or Texas flag burning.

Contiunation of #32:

This article is good news and should change some minds about Romney. I believe the conclusion speaks volumes about the contrast to an Administration known for its deceptions and exaggerations.

FTA: What we’ve seen of him over many years — from business success to running a state to impeccable personal and family attributes — convinces this newspaper that the time is right for someone with his broad skill set.

Another comment I should have included is the "reader comments" on the Editorial. Overwhelmingly pro-Obama! But that only emphasizes the significance of the endorsement.

If Rush Limbaugh came out and seriously endorsed Obama he would be inundated with screams of horror from his listening audience! [Of course he wouldn't do such a thing.]

After reading the article, I read through some of the comments that followed. The ability of the left to swallow hook, line and sinker the liberal Kool-aid is mind blowing.

As president, Gov. Romney is going to have to be made of steel because when the hard decisions are made, and they will have to be, these people are going to blow a gasket. The flogging President Bush took daily is going to be nothing compared to what Romney will receive. It will be whailing and gnashing of teeth non-stop by the media, and Obama will be, no doubt, encouraging them from the sidelines.

God bless the republic. We have to get this right and that means, the republicans in DC and sane democrats are going to have to for once, do what is right instead of what is politically expedient. The smartest thing Romney could do would be to put an end to the wealth accumulated by our electeds through inside information they receive, the perks they receive that their fellow Americans can only dream of and curtail lobbyists' influence thereby reducing crony capitalism. We all know Washington is corrupt and until you confront that problem, nothing changes. The purpose of those elected is that you go to Washington to serve you fellow Americans, not to fleece them. I apologize for the rant.

I am stunned. I've been having an e-mail back and forth with the editor about the News' biased coverage of the Middle East situation.

For three days they went with the party line ... it was the video. Fourth day: silence. I was like, praise be to Allah, there's peace in the Middle East. The Fifth day a short piece that didn't mention the previous stories.

I'd trade this endorsement for some unbiased coverage in this paper.

Welcome support, but the comments about the '47 percent' and 'the common man' smack of leftist Dem rant. When 20 percent of American taxpayers pay 80 percent of the taxes in this country, it is these taxpayers who should be mentioned - and honored. The Trillionaire wants the 20 percent to pay even more. It is time for the 47 percent to start contributing.

#40 - Good rant. " The smartest thing Romney could do would be to put an end to the wealth accumulated by our electeds through inside information they receive, the perks they receive that their fellow Americans can only dream of and curtail lobbyists' influence thereby reducing crony capitalism."


Toward that end, I would add that separating the congress from the influence of the bar should be pursued. That lawyers make laws and return to the bar, after their terms in Congress, is the gold standard of 'conflict of interest.' I find it hard to believe that this has not been addressed by our Founders, somewhere.
I say, confine the lawyers to the Judicial Branch where they can support the laws our representatives craft, not make those laws as well.

The DMN was usually the conservative voice in a two newspaper town (Dallas Times Herald) 30 years ago. The competition made for good debate and a modicum of self-policing journalism. In the early 2000's, I began asking myself, if I don't believe the articles that the editorial staff of the DMN selects in my own area of expertise, why should I trust those editors with their selection of articles off the newswires in other areas? I stopped my DMN subscription about 2003 when I discovered Drudge. I was told about Lucianne about two years later. Lucianne and Drudge are now "my complementary newspapers" and my first sources of news.

The DMN sports page is a large reason for the subscriptions that they still have. I wonder, back about 2002-2004, if the DMN had broken its journalistic tailspin and had sought to be come the premier major conservative daily in the country, would they be in the trouble they are now?

The Dallas Moring News is Nothern Texas's arm of the Democrat Party.

The TEA Party in Texas has worked for 2 years to chance libtards to Conservation. Texans of all parties, creeds, race and financial status love to work, value their families and enjoy a good rodeo.

The TEA Party has rounded up Conservative votes in large numbers. We will all vote on November 6, 2012 for Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan.

Now, our job is to support Conservatives in the other 49 States.

The TEA Party has 38 days of hard running ahead of us. Like Texas Roadrunners (The roadrunner is a fast-running bird that has a long tail and a crest. The bird is found in southwestern United States and Mexico. The roadrunner is also called a chaparral bird.) Our faithful will vote in larger numbers than the 2010 blowout.

Romney & Ryan in all 50 is the goal.

I read the comments after the article, and it included the usual self-righteous twits banging on about the poor, veterans, seniors, and so on, that Obama supposedly cares so much about.

I was pleasantly surprised to see one gentleman point out that it takes a good economy to be able to help people - or as as Dame Margaret Thatcher said: “No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions; he had money as well.”

"...Candidate Obama, an orator of great skill and cadence..."

What a load! He can't say one sentence w/o a prompter, w/o blowing his Commie cover with uh's and um's throughout.

"FRAUD" should be tatood on his forehead.

I can't wait to vote.

Hey undecided voters: The choice is clear. Do you want a substandard government cell phone or do you want a job to feed your family?

This paper is in Texas -- there'll be a lot of people around them who will agree with them and support the endorsement. The NYT, LAT, WAPO, and Chicago Tribune would never dare endorse Romney (assuming they had a sudden inexplicable attack of sanity) because they would lose most of their readership and half their advertisers.

There was an earthquake this morning in the Dallas area around 115 CDT this morning. From the cbs local news:

The U.S. Geological Survey says a minor earthquake measuring a preliminary 3.4 magnitude has rattled an area west of Dallas.

Is west of Dallas a liberal or conservative area? :-)

The Ft. Worth Star Telegram are always sitting outside the doors of my Lake Worth Walmart. I always politely answer, "No thanks, I never read that Commie rag...nothing personal."

Having a great morning with the wonderful rain we're experiencing...watching the Ryder Cup, drinking a Hurricane and hubbie is slicing up the homemade brisket to go with hashbrowns and fried eggs.

Wish I could have you all over for breakfast.

Obama's performance is worthy of impeachment. Obama or Romney? Romney shows he is ready for the job, and we have seen enough of Obama.

If the lefty jourNOlists were honest, they would admit that. At least some are acknowledging the problems.

Hopefully on Novemember 6, the American voter will resolve the current mess we are in.

"...(snip)to these leftists that if they wanted to avoid layoffs and see their newspaper survive, then they'd better be praying Mitt Romney wins"..(snip)

here's a recent item from the Newspaper Association of America that would support that opinion:

# 9 posted the heart of the endorsement.
it addressed the empty chair facts and recommended Mitt.
Why is it then necessary to look that gift Donkey in the mouth?
Was the DMN supposed to call the Obe dirty names after chastising him for his dirty negative campaign? Get real.
Who should complain how strong the recommendation was by Conservatives standards? A choice was made by a liberal paper -- shout hurray not nay and scorn.

The Dallas Morning News Editorial tends to ne picky. Climb aboard great to have you with us and think carefully, can we really afford financially and politically another 4 years of Barack Hussein Obama.His disastrous foreign affairs mismanagement of the Benghazi murders of 4 US patriots.THen blame a half hour amateur movie for the cause. By boasting a week or two ago publically that he had killed OSAMA and nr 2 AL Quada and anothe El Quada operative in Somalia decidely helped to spur and fuel the attack om the consulate. The attack was on 9/11 it did not occurr a week before or whatever. One cannot believe that this occupant of the White House would name the cause publically and at the UN that it was the anti Muslim movie. There are family members who are still in disgust at the handling of their loved ones. Obama did not have the courtesy to visit with these families. The FBI is now taking the blame. I trust they are going to investigate this horror show and give comfort to the bereaved.

Here is something ObozoX built ... His incompetence and indifference has been pure hell for our true American patriot military... per the following:

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months under ObozoX. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. This make-believe usurper commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifference and incompetence of this pResident.

The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state for Romney not to mention the hundreds of thousands of civilian jobs and more military lives lost to his support of sequestration ($600 Billion) of defense funds..

I do the same thing when someone tries to give me a free copy of Pravda On The Arkansas (Tulsa World). Tulsa is perhaps the most consistently Conservative city in America and yet we are cursed with having only a Liberal rag for a newspaper.

Let's not concede to Obama what the DMN allows him, i.e. the "mess [Bush] left behind."

The economic mess was wrought by Democrats ... yes, those folks who brought you the "Community Reinvestment Act" and the vastly expanded Fannie Mae mortgage enterprises.

To wit:
- Jimmah Carter, who started the CRA;
- Bill Clinton, who strengthened the CRA and set his Deputy AG Eric Holder in charge of enforcing it;
- Barney Frank, who blocked President Bush's efforts to reform Fannie Mae;
- and dozens of other powerful Democrats, e.g. Chris Dodd, who personally benefited from the house of cards that was built on the CRA.

As for any "mess" abroad that Obama blames on Bush:
Obama is simply lying that he "ended the war" in Iraq. It was Bush who ended that war; it was Obama who then proceeded to ruin the peace.

How about we get back to the big picture of what’s at stake with a Wendy Davis victory in November? The revelation of Wendy’s departure from truth in the accounts of her early life has spread across the country. Does that mean she has lost the media’s adoring obsession with her? Absolutely not. Watch now as they adopt her campaign strategy to cry foul, blame her opponent and accuse others of dirty tricks. They aren’t about to give up the best chance they’ve had to turn the state blue since Jimmy Carter.

Three days after the bloody 9/11 siege on our consulate in Benghazi, the Taliban waged an intricately coordinated, brutal attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. The murderous jihadists released video exactly one month ago this week showing off their training exercises in preparation for the assault. Where are the questions? Where’s the accountability? Where’s the Obama administration? Where’s the press? Where’s the outrage?

Barack Obama will forever be a historic, as well as historical, figure in American life. Candidate Obama, an orator of great skill and cadence, might have overcome everything and put the U.S. on a brighter path. President Obama, unfortunately, fell short of the challenge. We see evidence of Obama’s shortcomings in his re-election campaign, a relentlessly negative push to disqualify his opponent instead of standing on his accomplishments.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture.

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts. And that’s why,

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race.

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance
