Skip to comments.The Houston Chronicle Makes Obama/Biden Their Choice (Endorsement)
Posted on 10/19/2008 8:42:38 PM PDT by gab1279
...Obama appears to possess the tools to confront our myriad and daunting problems. He's thoughtful and analytical. He has met his opponents' attacks with calm and reasoned responses. Viewers of the debates saw a poised, well-prepared plausible president with well-articulated positions on the bread-and-butter issues that poll after poll indicate are the true concerns of voters. While Arizona Sen. John McCain and his running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin have struck an increasingly personal and negative tone in their speeches, Obama has continued to talk about issues of substance.
It is true that Obama has served less than a term in the U.S. Senate and that his previous elective experience is confined to the Illinois Legislature. However, during that public service and his previous role as a community organizer on the streets of Chicago, he has developed an appreciation and understanding of the real-life concerns of middle- and low-income Americans.
On the Iraq war, Obama was an early voice of opposition to the initial invasion and his plan for a phased withdrawal of combat forces has been embraced by American and Iraqi policymakers. His partner on the ticket, Biden, is one of the leading foreign policy experts in Congress.

They have a beef about Palin too:
"Perhaps the worst mistake McCain made in his campaign for the White House was the choice of the inexperienced and inflammatory Palin as his vice-presidential running mate. Had he selected a moderate, experienced Republican lawmaker such as Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison with a strong appeal to independents, the Chronicle's choice for an endorsement would have been far more difficult." (?)
Chronicle is pretty liberal, especially for being the major newspaper of the only city to go for Bush in both elections.
I’m soooo shocked! /end sarcasm
What do these left wing rags think radical socialism is going to do for them? They have made a horrid choice to trash America, and support socialism and its ilk.....
This is the crap that really pisses me off. Where were these whiny bass turds when Camp Obama was crucifying Trig Palin for have Down's and Bristol Palin for being pregnant? Commie hypocrites!
It would not surprise me at all if Kay Bailey put the HC up to this endorsement and include the phrase about her. She has become a disgrace with her non support of the McCain-Palin ticket once Palin came on board. She needs to retire.
At least Dallas got it right...
That last comment’s the real laugher...as if they would have endorsed McCain had he chosen Tom Ridge...now that’s funny.
Colour me not shocked.
“While Arizona Sen. John McCain and his running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin have struck an increasingly personal and negative tone in their speeches, Obama has continued to talk about issues of substance.”
Expect to continue hearing this plagiarized shared talking point. This along with “erratic” and “angry.”
That seditious stupid SOB'n socialist couldn't rub two sticks together and get a clue ! He's his handlers sock monkey, nothing more !
But then I repeat myself often !......;o)
Make their job easier. They'll only have to report half the news. And the stories will already come to them typed and edited straight from the Obama press room.
Oh, wait, that's how it is now.
He's thoughtful and analytical.
