The Times recommends Barack Obama for president, again (Obama's a failure but we endorse him anyway)
The Seattle Times ^ | September 29, 2012 | Seattle Times Editorial Board

Posted on 09/29/2012 10:12:13 PM PDT by Junior_G

In 2008, Barack Obama was The Seattle Times’ choice for president. Four years later, we endorse him again, with less enthusiasm. But he is a better choice than Mitt Romney, and could still go down in history as a good president...

A few more endorsements like that and President Obama’s campaign will be on a suicide watch. That was awful!

But aren't they excited about getting a free Obamaphone?

A healthy capitalistic society would strip the degenerate influence the Leftwing media has on a liberated America.

Let’s get healthy.

The Seattle Times doesn't seem to be excited about a second Obama term.

"A disappointment so far, but he still has promise..." is the best they can do?

I love this: "...and could still go down in history as a good president."

After one full term, they don't even think he can be considered a good president yet but they still endorse him.

If there is an institution in the US that is more despicable than the liberal media, I can’t think of it.

This is a conservative site and we all oppose liberalism, but any person looking at Obama objectively has to rule him a failure on the empirical evidence and even according to his own promises he made when he ran the first time.

What other President would have ever gotten an endorsement like that? No one! Basically he sucks, but the other guy MIGHT suck worse so vote vote for our guy. Yes, our guy because the msm realizes if you don't vote for the black leftist, you're racist. Their white liberal guilt tells them this is true and colors every story they write, so to speak.

From the article: In 2008, Obama promised to use the Federal Communications Commission to block the consolidation of the news media into a handful of giant corporations that threaten the functioning of our democracy. He has not done it.

Romney is not going to do it — but Obama still could.

So they endorsed him because he made a promise that he did not keep. Just brilliant.

Boy I’ll say! The Seattle Slimes could have just “Re-Elect Obama?’’ “We don’t think so but we doubt it’’.

The journalists and their publications who make up the “media” should no longer be allowed to refer to themselves as “the media”. America does not have a media. Instead, they should collectively be referred to as “the social democrat press” (sdp).

Bottom line: Obama’s presidency has been disappointing, but he still has promise. Romney would be too much of a gamble.

Liberal logic.

True story — Saturday was the last day of free bus service in downtown Seattle. Apparently it was losing money. This is the intellectual powerhouse that eagerly awaits the verdict of the Seattle Times each day.

But the high-fivin’ white guys are voting Romney.

Romney has no experience in foreign affairs, and it shows.

An incredibly funny line..like zero had experience in foreign affairs, or anything else for that matter, before entering the white house..and Romney only ran a successful Olympic games..which has absolutely no foreign countries..right?

Basically the print media is sucking up to what it thinks will be their safety net as they become more irrelevant.

The “Times” also recommends installing a backup alarm system on the Titanic.

I wonder if we could make him President of just such states as Washington, Oregon, California and have him complete his job of messing up their economies, ruining their foreign policies, and driving their people to dementia.

this “endorsement” gives new meaning to the phrase “damning with faint praise”. It’s more like “faintly praising with robust damning”.

This story is one of the most bizarre pieces of writing I have seen in a while. I wonder what an English professor would say about all the self cancelling references and subject denials.

I usually consider LSM endorsements as an indicator of the way NOT to vote. About 97%+ accuracy...

“”He COULD go down in history as an oyster, too...”

Much better odds on “flaming dirtbag narcissistic anti-American twerp”...
