  • The WaPo Kerry Endorsement: Curious and Curiouser

    12/29/2012 7:13:25 AM PST · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | December 29, 2012 | Ken Blackwell
    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison. The editorial staff of the Washington Post, surely meant well. They wanted readers to think that Sen. John Kerry’s vast experience in foreign policy over four decades equips him to serve as Secretary of State in the second Obama administration. The editorial, titled “John Kerry: Well-suited to be Secretary of State,” gets that part right. The natty Mr. Kerry certainly looks the part of a globe-trotting senior U.S. diplomat. As to his qualifications for that role, we’re reminded of Frederick the Great’s response when he was urged to make a less...

  • Obama Lands Coveted Pee Wee Herman Endorsement

    11/04/2012 1:25:01 PM PST · by ColdOne · 39 replies ^ | 11/4/12 | Breitbart News
    Team Obama must be sighing in collective relief this weekend. Pee Wee Herman, the alter ego of actor Paul Reubens, has endorsed President Barack Obama in a typically colorful column over at The Huffington Post. For me, this election is like the choice between store-bought ice cream (maybe even diet Ice Milk), and mouth-watering, homemade, unbelievably delicious frozen custard. How did I arrive at this conclusion? This week President Obama was working hard alongside Governor Bruce Springsteen of New Jersey (boy, he sure has gained some weight) to help the people most in need. It struck me that the choice...

    America’s heart, soul, brains and muscle — the middle- and working-class people who make this nation great — have been beset for too long by sapping economic decline. So, too, New York breadwinners and families. ~snip~ Revival of the U.S. as a land of opportunity and upward mobility is the central challenge facing the next President. The question for Americans: Who is more likely to accomplish the mission — Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on...

    Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement of yet another chief executive officer of a major U.S. company—and one who is on President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Intel chief executive officer Paul Otellini has endorsed the Republican nominee. Despite his presence on the president’s job council, however, Ortellini has criticized the administration in the past pretty strongly, as noted by Human Events. In 2010, the Intel CEO blasted Democrats in Washington at an Aspen Forum event: Otellini singled out the political state of affairs in Democrat-dominated Washington, saying: “I think this group...

    The single most important issue in this election is ending the national nightmare of Obamacare. If Obamacare if not stopped, it will permanently change the political culture of this country. There will be no going back. America will become a less productive, less wealthy nation. What wealth remains will have to be plowed into Obamacare -- to the delight only of the tens of thousands of government bureaucrats administering it. There won't be one moment marking the end of America. Everything will just gradually get worse, like trains and the tax code, until a bustling, prosperous nation is as distant...

  • Mitt Romney for president

    Four years ago, with little hesitation, we endorsed then-Sen. Barack Obama to become the 44th president of the United States, saying it was a time for “new leadership, a new approach to governing, a new way of conducting the people’s business.” So the basic question facing The Telegraph editorial board when it met last week came down to this: Did the former Illinois senator do enough to live up to those admittedly high expectations to warrant a second term? After several hours of spirited debate, not unlike conversations taking place in kitchens and living rooms across America, we reached a...

    Richard Land, a Baptist leader who has been one of the leading pro-life evangelicals for many years has written an opinion piece in which he lays out the case for social conservatives as to why they should vote for Mitt Romney.Land is executive editor of The Christian Post and president of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, but wrote the endorsement piece as a private citizen. The endorsement represents a break from his 24-year-old tradition of not endorsing presidential candidates.“Every four years we have pundits and political gurus tell America, “This is the most important presidential election in a generation.”...

Many are hitching their crumbling credibility to Mitt Romney's winning steed: the Des Moines Register; the Tennessean; the Orlando Sentinel; and the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel to name a few.But Obama can take comfort that the Big Three remain steadfast in their support: the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.The Times claims "Mr. Obama prevented another Great Depression" and "prevented unemployment from reaching 12 percent."

    President Obama spent roughly half an hour last Tuesday on the phone with the Des Moines Register's publisher and editor, desperately trying to win the influential Iowa newspaper's endorsement for a second term. "You'll feel better when you give it," Obama told them, after touting what he said were four years of accomplishments, along with promises of strong economic growth should he get four more years. Three days later, the Register endorsed Mitt Romney — the first Republican the paper has backed in 40 years.

    On Sunday, the Chicago Daily Herald, the second largest daily newspaper in metropolitan Chicago, endorsed Mitt Romney for President in 2012. In 2008, the Daily Herald endorsed hometown Senator Barack Obama for President: In endorsing Illinois’ favorite son in 2008, we declared Obama “has a chance to be a great president.” We said, “He offers a new kind of politics. A politics that breaks down the old partisan walls. A politics that strives to bring people together. A politics of hope.”... But four years later, where is the hope? Where is the confident swagger and leadership to uplift the nation’s...

    Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter dismissed the Des Moines Register endorsement of Mitt Romney, saying it was not “based at all in reality.” “They endorsed Mitt Romney in the primary, so this was not much of a surprise,” said Cutter on ABC’s “This Week”, referring to the influential swing-state paper’s backing of the GOP candidate. “It was a little surprising to read that editorial, because it didn't seem to be based at all in reality, not just in the president's record, but in Mitt Romney's record,” Cutter added. “It says that he'd reach across the aisle, which he'd do...

    Now, Powell wants us to believe that despite endorsing Obama twice, he is still a “moderate Republican”. Given the fact that even moderate Democrats have bailed on Obama; a former highly touted Obama cheerleader, former Rep. Artur Davis, has abandoned him; the mainstream media, once highly protective of their beloved one, have begun to turn on him; and the fact that the black community has fared even worse than others in this atrocious Obama economy, one would think that any rational person would realize that Obama must go. I will say right now exactly what I said in 2008...
