Time for another change
The Tennessean (Nashville), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Mr. Know-It-All, 10/18/2012 10:32:07 PM

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.

Comments:
This is astounding. Even though the editorial staff is snarkey in this endorsement, the fact that they would endorse Romney is a great surprise. This is one of those big city rags that can be counted on the routinely endorse the D candidate. They must be really hurting from reduced circulation and don't want to further alienate the population of a very red state.

Wow. And another liberal paper, the Orlando Sentinel, endorsed Mitt today too.

It is cratering for Obama. Thank God!

The simple reason that this has gotten so ugly is that Obama has nothing else to run on.
Obama has a billion dollars to spend on smears against Romney and that is it.

The Dallas Morning News endorsement of Romney seems to have broken the dam and made it OK for usually dem papers to go for Romney instead.

Yesterday a liberal paper in NY endorsed Romney, today papers in FL and TN that usually blindly endorse the 'D'. I guess they can read the writing on the wall.

These lib papers are endorsing Romney for one reason. Their very survival depends upon Romney's election. They realize another four years of obama means one or two state-run propaganda organs will be allowed.

Wow, what a snarky endorsement. Here's the answer Tennessean: look in the mirror! Your liberal bias is what has divided this country by allowing an unqualified man to ascend to the highest office in the world as a fairy tale and ZERO scrutiny on his lack of experience. I have no idea how how you live with yourselves, I seriously don't. His skin color was only of interest to your leftist co- conspirators and what you all could get out of it. Now you stand here with nothing to show for all this hopey change with your tails between your legs. I'm guessing you are turning to mitt Romney for a turnaround in your dwindling readership and public respect. Sorry for the rant, I feel better.

Liberal newspaper in solid red states are facing the handwriting on the wall. At least they can still read. The snottiness of the endorsement is riddled with liberal double speak. Referring to the Iraq war as started under false premises is classic liberal propaganda.

It also foreshadows the kind of statements that will be presented as Romney starts to make the needed changes in the federal government. As soon as any changes are made, he will be accused of "shredding the social safety net" just like liberals did with welfare reform. But welfare reform was a clear success just as most of the changes Romney will make will be. But the liberal media will still make the charges because they refuse to admit that their programs are failures and need to be tossed out or severely revised.

It IS time for another change, for Conservatism, as represented by Ryan, to push aside the failed liberalism of the past few decades. Time for fiscal sanity. Time for Constitutionally limited government. Time for government regulations to be significantly reduced. Time for the government to get out of the way of free enterprise. Time to turn the Country back over to We the People. Time for We the People to take back control and responsibility of our lives and our government.

We have to change the media, we have to change the tone, we have to stand up and let what happened to Pres. Bush happen to Pres. Romney.
My kids never remember a time when the press has not been vicious against us, it is very sad to me. When I was a kid I do not remember the attacking the horrible things they do and say now when it is a conservative person.
I think kids like mine, in college are tired of the ugliness and the hate. Everyone in our country can use a long break where we actually let the new President do his job and everyone will just shut up for awhile.

FTA: "[I]t is surprising that any reasonable voter would feel comfortable pressing the button for either President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney."

As if there weren't a clear choice in this election between a solid, accomplished man and a man-boy failed president.

The Tennessean's staff may be surprised that any reasonable voter whatever could actually manage to cast a ballot for Mitt Romney without suffering severe discomfort - but I just pressed the button for Mitt Romney with no discomfort at all!

The Tennessean's staff should get out of the office more often.

What #8 and #15 said. The "Tennessean" should know all about how "low American politics can stoop". They have perfected "stooping" by their daily defense of the loser-in-chief, obama. This "endorsement", though I guess it is welcomed, would have been called a "left-handed compliment" back in the day. (with apologies to left-handed non-snarky people)

In Colorado, efforts to recall a third anti-gun politician ended this morning with the news that Senator Evie Hudak, who represents the communities of Arvada and Westminster, will resign. Hudak apparently decided that the election, which if lost could have flipped control of the state’s senate, was not worth the risk.

RALEIGH, N.C. – After a year and a half behind barbed wire as a prisoner in World War II, 2nd Lt. David C. Cox had just about reached his breaking point. Deliveries of Red Cross parcels to Stalag VII-A had all but ceased, and the U.S. Army bomber co-pilot and his fellow POWs were subsisting on scanty rations of bug-infested soup and bread.

Gov. John Hickenlooper signed bills Wednesday that place new restrictions on firearms and signaled a change for Democrats who traditionally shied away from gun control debate in Colorado - a state with a moderate streak and pioneer tradition of gun ownership and self-reliance. Hickenlooper´s signature of the bills comes exactly eight months after dozens of people were shot in a movie theater in suburban Denver, and on the same day as the executive director of the state´s Corrections Department was shot and killed at his home.

My favorite memory of Ed Koch is a moment from one of the Democratic presidential primaries of the Eighties. He was in his hey-day: mayor of New York, omnipresent media yak-in-the-box, grand rebbe whose hand had to be kissed by any presidential candidate hoping to score with Jewish voters not only in NYC but Florida as well.

Amid the developments, the Illinois State Rifle Association issued an “urgent alert” to its members warning them that Democratic legislators were trying to push through last-minute anti-gun legislation.

'Cooling Out’ the Voters

Confidence men know that their victim — “the mark” — is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big difference whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the confidence man is long gone. So part of the confidence racket is creating a period of uncertainty during which the victim is not yet sure of what is happening. This delaying process has been called “cooling out the mark.” The same principle applies in politics. When the accusations that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton first surfaced, he flatly denied them all.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.
