Skip to comments.Obama has earned a second term /Barf Alert
Posted on 10/21/2012 7:37:54 AM PDT by Racehorse
The United States will face major challenges over the next four years. For the first time in history, its citizens confront the prospect of handing down to the next generation a nation that is less wealthy, less healthy, less secure and less in control of its destiny.
President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have both laid out plans to avert such national misfortune. . . . We believe President Obama has demonstrated a better grasp of the essential issues and offers a better vision for the United States. Voters should give him a second term in the White House.
Obama took office four years ago amid a meltdown of the nation's financial, housing and labor markets. He acted swiftly to continue and enhance what had been bipartisan measures to stabilize those markets. He also took new steps to tighten regulations on banks, create a floor under the rising number of home foreclosures and stanch the loss of up to 800,000 jobs per month while also rescuing the U.S. auto industry.
The results: a stock market that has risen more than 60 percent since Obama took office, housing starts in September up 38 percent from one year ago and 31 consecutive months of job growth.
Beyond dealing with complex issues he inherited, President Obama has taken initiatives to create a better, fairer society. He ended the deportation of young immigrants who, through no fault of their own, were brought to this country illegally as children. He ended the ban on gays serving openly in the military. And he pushed through the Affordable Care Act that will extend health care coverage to 30 million Americans who, shamefully in this day and age, still lack access to decent medical care.

Most of the papers in Texas are crap, surprisingly.
Very disappointing and completely out of sinc with their readership.
I hear Leavenworth is nice this time of year.
"....and the San Antonio Express has earned the floor of a puppy pen."
What do you expect? They didn’t give San Antonio the nickname ‘Chili Switch’ for nothing.
So, what they are saying is how bad our situation has become under obammy, and for this we must re-elect him?
BTW, San Antonio has always had a large Hispanic population, and the majority of them tend to vote liberal.
>> We believe President Obama has demonstrated a better grasp of the essential issues
In the view of the San Antonio Express-News, there is only ONE “essential issue”: Free Stuff For Mexicans. Including unencumbered citizenship for illegals.
fewer people working now than 4 yrs ago....more people on disability....more people collecting food stamps...more people with free phones....more hamburger jobs and fewer good jobs...
gas doubled....food inflation....health care insurance skyrocketing...the world is a mess and the muslim brotherhood have taken over most of the middle east....
yeah....its just grand out there...
Further reinforcement of my decision not to give this rag any of my money at all. After its endorsement of bathhouse Barry the first time and then Julian (Fidel) Castro, I wouldn’t even read it if it were free. Sheesh, when I came down here I thought this crap was confined to Austin.
Yep. The online comments certainly reflect it.
Sadly, Bexar County and San Antonio are mostly owned by the Democratic Party. Apparently, the Express-News goes along for the ride.
At least the Houston Chronicle got it right. If you did not see the FR post, on Friday they endorsed Romney with a blistering condemnation of Obama.
Four years later, President Obama's deeds have failed to match his words, much less his specific vows to cut the national debt by half and bring the nation's unemployment rate to 6 percent. As Texans, it is a particular vexation that this president's attitude toward the interests of our state has occasionally bordered on contempt, particularly in decisions relating to the NASA budget and the energy sector. The hurtful symbol of this attitude of insensitivity to Texans' feelings was the administration's choice to deny Space City's bid to become home to one of the retired space shuttles.
We do not believe four more years on the same plodding course toward economic recovery is the best path forward for Texas or the nation. And so we endorse the Republican team, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, in the belief that they can do better by Texas and the nation. Romney for president
More infantile, Big Bird fantasy-land liberalism.
In case you missed it:
Both readers agree with this position.
Watch out for all the “undocumented” voters in SA.
Look at the mayor, he is like a Hispanic obama, hasn’t done anything, mother hates the US, he’s another “down low” member, etc.
The SA Express News has endorsed Republicans for a long time. They are endorsing Obama because of the illegal issue as well as they are getting ready to put everything behind the Castro brothers for national office.
Fidel and Raul ?
But they support republicans usually? I don’t get it?
The gutless wonders turned off comments. I doubt that even in 70% hispanic SA the comments would have been favorable to the editorial position.
SA has become a stinking swamp in the last few decades-it always had a large percentage of Koolaid drinkers-I thought they were deranged when I was a teen-actually agreeing with my parents on something. And that rag of a paper has always been Pravda, too...
There was a thing called the GGL-Good Government League-that was loaded with corruption and worked tirelessly to keep people on the plantation-my (hispanic) family called it the gulag government league-it persisted into the 70’s, even though one of its minions was caught in his car in a park mostly naked with an intern-the jokes wrote themselves for months.
The mayor thinks he is Henry Cisneros without the mistress, and needs to go on an extended sabbatical to Cuba (and take his family with him).
The city has annexed vast areas to grab more tax revenue while basic services have been a joke for years-I’d get a faster response to a fire or crime from the sheriff’s deputies or the volunteer fire department out here than in SA, too-taxpayer funded basic services suck in the ‘burbs there.
Just for the record, I’m hispanic and conservative-my whole family is-it might have something to do with having come here about 250 years ago, but either way, I don’t know any hispanics who are democrat supporters who are not mojados. Yes, that is a pejorative...
It is pretty sad when the Houston Comical gets what the SA Excuse doesn’t, isn’t it?
That’s okay...not many in SA read English so it won’t matter
He deserves a second term allright.
And in solitary confinement, too...
Do you believe this Sh*t??????????? In this day and age who the hell cares if a couple of light-in-the-loafer editors who are heavy lib-turd Kool-Aid drinkers bring you this stupid message??? Like I was waiting with baited-breath to learn how to vote from these wankers??????????????
Typical of the SA Depressed News. Given that the Houston Comical endorsed Romney, it almost makes me want to move back there....almost. As my own editorial note, I have seen quite a few yard signs for Romney/Ryan here in SA and none for BO, but then I don’t live on the south side.
As do I and the second term to be 25 - Life in prison sharing a cell with Holder.
The Castro brothers are Julio and Juaquin.
Julio spoke at the Democrat convention. He is the Mayor of San Antonio.
I must have missed the DNC (sarc). Unless one lives in your area, when people speak of Castros, they usually mean the jerk off dictators of Cuba. Or as JFK would say. Cuber.
Yeah, and that second term should be for life!
