Editorial: Dallas Morning News endorses Mitt Romney for president

Barack Obama will forever be a historic, as well as historical, figure in American life. The 44th U.S. president, yes, but more noteworthy, he will forever be the first African-American to lead a nation riven through centuries by racial and ethnic division.

His election in November 2008 inspired. Even those who may not have supported him could not deny the significance.

With it came an optimism that the ideals he stressed as a candidate, like a post-partisan Washington where Democrats and Republicans worked together, were within reach. He took office amid great turmoil, a crashing economy and two wars atop his priorities.

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. The wars have largely faded from headlines, but the economic struggles remain, along with an attendant worry about future federal spending, deficits and debt.

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.

    Interesting news. The Dallas Morning News today endorsed Mitt Romney for President. Given the herd instinct of news media, I wonder if other newspapers may decide to do the same thing, possibly to offset the criticism that they have been in the tank for Obama since 2008.

    • That may very well be the case Alan, I see that as the only way for them to crawl out of the TANK, as you pointed out.

      May the good Lord hear you. We can ill afford another 4 years of incompetence. We may never recover from the previous 4 years as it is.

    I think after Wednesday night a lot of people will be endorsing Romney.

  3. Amazing, Fred.

    I find this completely amazing.

    To what might you account for this, pray tell?

      Maybe some came to their senses.. Damn if I know, but Dallas proper is as liberal as it gets..

      • Bluto says:

        Dallas liberal? Holy shit batman! Well that sucks.

        Well, I may be in the belly of the wacko-left beast- California, but at least my county is conservative. Go figure. 🙂

        • TexasFred says:

          Bluto, Dallas itself is VERY liberal, has been for years, but Dallas County is very Conservative… All the big cities in Texas are liberal, but the rest of the state controls the vote, Texas itself is very Conservative and it totally pisses the libbers off..

          • Bluto says:

            It’s been about 15 years since I’ve visited Dallas and as I recall it seemed very conservative to me. Of course I spent most of my time in Grapevine which I’ve heard has changed immensely since then.

            Unfortunately for me, California is mostly liberal with a few pockets of conservatives. We’re still here! Not all of us are kool-aid drinking nuts. My county voted 66% Republican last in 2008, so we’re doing our part. Don’t blame me!

            Hell, the state passed prop 8 only to be shot down by libber judges. There’s just no help for us I guess. 🙁

    The Dallas Morning News has been on the brink of closing it’s doors for years now.
    Subscriptions have fallen every year, and hardly anyone wants to pay for it’s “online”content. And when I was 12 years old, I had a DMN paper route and delivered this paper.
    My Father who was a Texas Democrat absolutely hated this paper.
    In order to comment on their websites now, you must be a member of “Facebook”.
    It’s liberalism is also a great part of it’s declining subscriptions.
    A Texas liberal is a failure and is using up oxygen.
    No redeeming value at all here.
    We have great TV stations to get our daily dose of what’s happening, and we get it quicker.
    Newspapers, the only time I read them now is when I find one in a hospital waiting room.
    Ever seen that “commercial” where a bunch of people are standing around and something “goes “BANG”, and every one of these people instantly draw their personal firearm, and search for where the sound came from?
    Filmed in Texas.
    Believe me, “an armed society is a polite society”.
    God Bless Texas.

    With the media becoming more irrelevant, and more catching on, to survive they may have to face a bit or reality. Lies only go so far.

    • TexasFred says:

      If the media, ALL media, wants to survive, they have to get out of the Dem/Lib bed and get mainstream Conservative… Otherwise, when WE lose rights, THEY lose rights, and maybe, just MAYBE, that light bulb finally started to flicker for them..
