Skip to comments.Inquirer Editorial: Obama will do a better job

Like a carnival barker cajoling a mark into spending the last bills in his wallet, the Republican Party is counting on Americans' not remembering that they've seen this trick before.
GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney wants voters to forget their familiarity with the prize he's dangling before their eyes - a return to the disastrous economic policies that preceded the recession. Given that context, Romney's prize is no better than a fake pearl.
... Obama deserves more than the grudging credit Republicans are giving him for being the commander in chief who finally got Osama bin Laden. America is safer as a result of that. America will be healthier, with more people insured, as a result of Obamacare. More Americans are employed, although not nearly enough, because of Obama's saving the auto industry and promoting policies that are creating jobs. What Obama has already been able to accomplish in the face of unrelenting partisan opposition suggests he could have a remarkably successful presidency if given a second term
BARACK OBAMA is the better candidate in the presidential race. A vote for him is an investment in a strong future, which is why The Inquirer endorses his reelection.

Oh, Philly Enquirer. I was afraid the National Enquirer had gone over to the dark side.
Why do we care about the Philadelphia Inquirer?
Egregious horse sh*t, not worthy of serious consideration.
blacks and unionists. We’ve lost nothing with this endorsement.
The teleprompter and chief will be coddled and he will reviel that the culprits who were responsible for the murder and mayhem in Lybia have been caught and will be prosecuted. All hail the liar and chief
...the Republican Party is counting on Americans' not remembering that they've seen this trick before.No, the Partisan Media Shills are.
What these cons appear to be saying is “free market capitalism has never worked”.
Maybe the inquirer should be looking at Philly...its corruption and general dissolution into a twin of Detroit? But no...they support nobama and his curruption which mirrors Philly.
Alternatively: (We fervently hope) Obama will do a better job.
He'll have to find one first, come January - eh? Good luck to him on his search! It's kinda rough out there right now.
” Obama deserves more than the grudging credit Republicans are giving him for being the commander in chief who finally got Osama bin Laden. America is safer as a result of that.”
When bush killed a terrorist, the left howled that he was making us less safe because everytime we kill a terrorist, ten more grow in his place. Obama kills one terrorist, and America is safer because of it.
“... Obama deserves more than the grudging credit Republicans are giving him for being the commander in chief who finally got Osama bin Laden. America is safer as a result of that.”
Wrong. Have you been watching the news in Libya and Egypt the past month?
“America will be healthier, with more people insured, as a result of Obamacare.”
Wrong. No new doctors being trained, and why are more than 40% of doctors surveyed going to leave medicine over the next 5 years? The only solution will be foreign medical graduates (FMG’s) and physician “extenders”, such as PA’s and NP’s. Mistakes will be made, and often. Patients don’t know what is about to hit them. It is going to be very ugly.
“More Americans are employed, although not nearly enough, because of Obama’s saving the auto industry and promoting policies that are creating jobs.”
Wrong. Fewer Americans are employed than in 2009. The real unemployment rate is 11%, and the U6 is over 14%. General Motors is in much worse shape than before its bailout. It isn’t even close to paying back its debt to the American taxpayer.
“What Obama has already been able to accomplish in the face of unrelenting partisan opposition suggests he could have a remarkably successful presidency if given a second term.”
And what will be different about this second term that makes you think he will be more successful?
This is an editorial written in an alternate universe.
GAG! More self serving BS from that fish wrapper.
Pelosi better stay away from that gavel, then. (Say, has Dingy Harry worked out a budget yet?)
“Inquirer Editorial: Obama will do a better job”
Ten out of ten anti-American Communists agree!
What a laugher.
1) When one talks about what the current administration ‘inherited’ and had to deal with in office, one must remember that Bush had 9/11 thrust upon his presidency. During his presidency the economy did well for 7 out of 8 years, despite having to pay for two wars and the economic fallout of 9/11.
2) There was a democrat controlled Congress for the later part of Bush's tenure - and this is when the economic downturn occurred.
3) The mortgage meltdown was the consequence of policy put into place by a democrat president (Clinton), and perpetuated by democrats like Barney Frank - over the objections of Bush and others.
4) The recession had nothing to do with ‘tax cuts’ or there not being enough federal revenue.
5) Most importantly, in reality it is the democrats who want you to forget about ‘failed policies’ of the past. Obama is on the same path as Jimmy Carter, and it took a Republican to fix the disaster that those policies left us last time.
6) Clinton had economic success, in great measure, because Hillarycare failed, and Republicans took over Congress. He was led kicking and screaming to some of the decisions he made that helped the economy. These are all things that the current administration does not embrace - such as welfare reform.
Oh... I remember...
I remember well!
Do they mean he will do a better job than he did the first time around? No.
Do they mean he will do a better job than Romney/Ryan? No.
Come on man, give me some notice! Reading this during breakfast is making me lose my appetite!
the unfortunate reality is that the vote in filthydelphia which exceeds the total population drags the whole rest of the state down with, get rid of filtydelphia and Pa would be a red state.
How? Bin Laden was a sick old man, cut off for 2 years from Al Queda, and spending his time watching pornos and eating Cheetos when we found him. Ayman Al-Zawahiri had long since cut him off, and has been running the show. Is Ambassador Stevens "safer" as a result of his death? Nonsense...and Republicans needs to openly deride and belittle this "accomplishment", which was like sending a SEAL team into Century Village to kill Grandma.
Bin Laden is Dead, But Al Queda is Alive!
Insanity, but the libs are positive that the same mistakes would have a different outcome this time. Do these ‘bots really consider themselves to be even a bit rational?
If you want on/off the PA Ping List, please freepmail me.
If you see posts of interest to Pennsylvanians, please ping me.
Maybe they are using Florida’s educational standards based on race??? It’s the only logical explanation for all the leftist saying he’s doing such a good job../sarcasm/
Philadelphia Inquirer is proof the MSM would pimp a dead whore.
Romney doesn't want voters to forget that a big government push to expand home ownership, fully supported by community organizer Barack Hussein Obama, was a disastrous policy that preceded the recession.
The Philadelphia Inquirer is literally an arm of the Democrat Party. They own it. It’s not a newspaper. It’s a propaganda broadsheet. What else would they say?
