Skip to comments.Obama is best choice for president
Posted on 10/14/2012 9:03:45 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Americans have a clear choice between two presidential candidates with starkly different ideas for spurring the economy, providing for the health of our people, defending our interests abroad, educating our children and protecting our environment. We believe that President Barack Obamas progress on these issues merits him a second term in the White House.
Four years ago on this page, we endorsed Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona over Obama. We wrote that we were impressed with Obama, but McCain would bring the Iraq war to a successful conclusion, work to end American dependence on foreign oil, reduce America's output of climate-changing gases and begin the rebuilding of our economy.
The Democratic president has done all those things and more. He is calm under pressure and courageous in standing up for the rights of all Americans, including the poor, veterans, the elderly, women, gays and immigrants. In contrast, weve sometimes found it hard in the last few weeks to tell just what Obamas challenger, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, really stands for.
Obama has a keen vision that he has worked hard to achieve, against considerable obstacles and often courageously. But the goal is in sight: An America respected worldwide as much for its prosperity as its defense of liberty and justice.
The Journal editorial board endorses Barack Obama for president.

“But the goal is in sight”
Complete economic collapse.
North Carolina goes for Romney.
Wonder how much they got paid.......
Translation “We don’t want to be called racists, and since nobody reads our birdcage liner anyway, we figure that if we endorse the King of Kenya, we might have them throw a bone or two our way in advertising dollars”.
That paper is a disgrace to North Carolina.
I once wrote a letter to the editor criticizing Clinton and got a personal reply back from the editor.
That reply was as abusive as anything one would get from Axelrod.
“Liberty and justice”?????!!!!
They’re smokin’ something, and it ain’t Winston’s.
Obama has not been capable of doing the job for 3.75 years what makes these morons think he will learn how the second time around!
We must save our country NOW!
He showed strong leadership in ordering the successful raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
Some of Romneys foreign-policy advisers are the former Bush neo-conservatives who got us into the unnecessary Iraq war.
From "Sorry Bush... Obama's Gutsy Decision Got Osama" (don't be put off by the title, it's sarcasm), "It was Bush's decision to invade Iraq which lead to the capture of several al-Qaida operatives."
Hope there are no suicides among members of the Journal’s editorial board on 11/7.That would break my heart.
We cannot yet say who will win the Presidential election. But, we can say with certainty who will lose: the press. They have become a laughingstock that will accelerate the demise of their corrupt industry. It will be a good riddance.
I thought we got all those witches....
Delusional is right. In what universe do some people reside? On path to what? How much actual data has to be ignored to think we are on course for anything but complete collapse and dire consequences for the American people? At no time as Obama or the Democratic Party shown any interest in addressing any of these critical problems. They are piling on top trillions in new spending, ever bigger government and massive new government dependency...all the things at the heat of our decline.
“But the goal is in sight”
If by that they mean communist take over, then the answer is yes.
In order to support Obama it is a necessity that you lie and lie a lot.
they forget to say "and we learned our lesson". Unless they are completely filled with nincompoops they can't have done thins unless someone threatened to post pictures of them having sex with boys in the men's room.
That's what I heard, at least
Well, I did get this far...
“The Democratic president has done all those things and more.”
...before I had to check to see if it was Semi-News Satire or The Onion. Unfortunately it was neither.
They will now be on my FU List for Nov 7! It’s a really long list!
You forgot the second part of the headline, “If the Alternative Is Didi Amin”.
Save paper. Less for commie rags and more for NC tobacco produced cigarettes. A pack of Winston or Salem brand please.
So....Winston Salem North Carolina must be predominantly black, huh?
12-15% of the population.
These people have lost their grip on reality.
Wow-—sounds like it was written by a ghost writer hack straight from the DNC. Anyone agreeing with that pibble of a fawning piece of debris endorsement is a literal moron on a string.
Obviously, there is a sizable flock of leftists who would do the world a favor by committing harakiri. Slowly.
Who wrote this op-ed, Sasha or Malia?
Seriously, it reads like a 4th or 5th grader that has just begun trying out a thesaurus.
What a bunch of mush-mouthed nothing blather.
Someone please tell me this will result in massive subscription cancellations and sponsors abandoning this rag.
Probably, but that aside, they must grow some killer weed there.
“So....Winston Salem North Carolina must be predominantly black, huh?”
Wow. What planet are these people from.
Best is used when comparing three or more people. These morons don’t know that the proper word is better.
ONLY A LIBERAL LEFT WING WHACKO WHO WORKS FOR A NORTH CAROLINA NEWSPAPER COULD WRITE THIS. NOT ONLY A NORTH CAROLINA WHACKO NEWSPAPER BUT MSM WHACKO’S HAVE THIS OPINION OF BOZO
Great satire piece.
You will see something similar from the Charlotte Observer. NC will go back to red.
I agree with you. I believe that Romney will win, and one of the biggest losers on Nov 6 will be the left wing media. Even the sheeple now know that they are completely biased, and in the tank for Dear Leader and the Democrats. They have sacrificed their credibility on the altar of ideology, and in so doing have lost the trust of the American public. Even if the Kenyan Caliph wins, the public has stopped trusting the left wing media. They are no better than Pravda in the old USSR, and everyone knows it. This election will break the back of the left wing media.
The comments underneath are just as delusional. Some examples:
“Whatever you claim to see, the facts are undeniable here - the country is far more prosperous than it was 4 years ago by almost any measure. Since Obama’s policies kicked in, the stock market is way up; the unemployment rate is consistently shrinking; taxes have been lowered on small businesses and the middle and working classes. These are simply objective, quantifiable facts. “
“Fast and furious was started under the Bush Administration”
“Regarding government spending - spending levels have been cut to their lowest levels in decades under this administration.”
They knew McCain couldn’t win. They’re scared of Romney.
“Look at how bipartisan we are! We endorsed a Republican when we knew he was going to lose.”
Pay them back for their duplicity by electing every Republican in every race. Then, see their bipartisanship on the day after the election.
Very close to my thought: wonder what they had with which to blackmail them?
Well, I guess the saying is true: You just can’t fix stupid.
Sounds fun...I think I'll start my own FU List...hope my computer has space enough for all that I put down....
Ah yes, my hometown paper speaks. And this is why I don’t subscribe anymore.
What a pantload.
Of the reasons cited:
Providing for the health of our people.....NOT in the U.S. Constitution
Defending our interests abroad....kissing asses, bowing, and relegating America to a non-dominant/Leading Nation is what he's done.
Educating our children.....NOT in the U.S. Constitution, and all that's done is INDOCTRINATION, not Education, as demonstrated by scores and comparisons to educations in other countries.
Protecting the Environment.....NOT in the U.S. Constitution.
These "accomplishments", including destroying the economomy and SPENDING the income of future generations, due to handouts to cronies, Unions, donors, and the non-productive parasites who infect our country (INCLUDING NON-U.S. CITIZENS) is a good reason to have a Trial for Treason and Derelection of Duty.
