Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Liberal Iowa fishwrap endorses Romney, first GOP endorsement since 1972

The Des Moines Register hasn’t endorsed a Republican for president since Nixon defeated George “One State” McGovern in 1972.  It’s taken 40 years, but even this fishwrap recognizes that stupid is as stupid does and a vote for B.O. is stupid.  Excerpt:

The former governor and business executive has a strong record of achievement in both the private and the public sectors. He was an accomplished governor in a liberal state. He founded and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. He successfully managed the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Romney has made rebuilding the economy his No. 1 campaign priority — and rightly so.

The president’s best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short. Nothing indicates it would change with a second term in the White House. …

Funny, though, that one of B.O.’s campaign spokesboobs doesn’t think it’s “reality-based“:

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter on Sunday dismissed the Des Moines Register endorsement of GOP candidate 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” of the influential swing-state paper’s backing for President Obama’s challenger.

“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 the exact opposite. It’s the exact opposite of what he did in Massachusetts.”

Um…sure, Snookums.

I guess they were more “reality-based” when the fishwrap endorsed her boss in 2008, huh?  Funny, that.  Anywho, looks like every major newspaper in that swing state has endorsed Romney.  And while I don’t put much stock in a newspaper endorsement’s ability to persuade would-be voters, I do find it extraordinarily telling that more fishwraps than I ever suspected would jump off the Obama Titanic.
