Jackson Citizen Patriot Editorial: Vote for Mitt Romney for president
Mlive.com ^ | October 24, 2012 | Brian Wheeler

After the last chapter is written on this presidency — and we believe that will happen in less than three months — President Obama will be remembered as a leader who responded to gargantuan challenges with pedestrian and partisan measures.


The country's economy is in better shape today than it was four years ago, but the recovery from the Great Recession has not been strong enough. Unemployment remains alarmingly and historically high, while home prices and measures of public confidence are distressingly low. If American voters were asked to vote on their confidence in the future, they would respond with a thumbs down.


A presidential election, of course, is not merely a referendum, but a choice between candidates. This year, it is a choice between a president whose record has not matched the rhetorical promise that carried him into office and a businessman and politician with a record of accomplishment. We endorse Mitt Romney for president.

Its hard to agree that the overall economy is better today than it was 4 years ago, locally it is but that has nothing to do with Obama. In any case the endorsement from the CitPat can't hurt.

Jackson cit pat endorsement for Romney. For those outside the area, Jackson is the heart of the conservative 7th district. The district went democrat in 08 (largely due to the beltloop republicans) but we regained the seat in 2010.

PLEASE, please, please give us op-to-the-minute updates on all the “Letters To The Editors” from this one.

I’ll troll the MLIVE website but, the ink-copy letters are going to be HILARIOUS! (I’m gonna ping PJ on this, too, just in case.)

The usual suspects that write the CitPat (AKA: Zombies) are gonna be pizzed! Gads, even my rabid lib SIL might make contribute.
