Posted on 10/21/2012 12:24:02 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
On Sunday The HoustonChronicle,which in 2008 broke a 44 year tradition of backing Republicans and endorsed Barack Obama, endorsed Mitt Romneyfor President in 2012:
>>>Like so many others,we were captivated by the Illinois senator's soaring rhetoric and energized by his promise to move American politics beyond partisan gridlock and into an era of hope and change.
It hasn't happened. Four years later,PresidentObama's deeds have failed to match his words,much less his specific vows to cut the national debt by half and bring the nation's unemployment rate to 6 percent. As Texans,it is a particular vexation that this president's attitude toward the interests of our state has occasionally bordered on contempt,particularly in decisions relating to the NASA budget and the energy sector. The hurtful symbol of this attitude of insensitivity to Texans' feelings was the administration's choice to deny Space City's bid to become home to one of the retired space shuttles.
.......In our 2008 endorsement we cautioned the president against demonizing the energy sector-good advice that he has never heeded (see KeystoneXLPipeline). By contrast,Gov.Romney has listed energy atop his five-point plan to rejuvenate the economy.....
The other launch pad ignored by PresidentObama is the literal one-NASA,and specifically the JohnsonSpaceCenter.
It has been an insult to the memory of American heroes like Neil Armstrong and Sally Ride to allow manned spaceflight to languish in the country that put men on the moon. The notion of paying $50 million a seat to Russia for commercial taxi service to the International Space Station is galling.
Obama has failed to articulate a bold vision of his own for the agency. That failure forsakes a legacy of scientific achievement that has showered benefits on the nation. This approach to NASA has abandoned the American imperative of lighting out for the territory and exploring new worlds. NASA's legacy must be reclaimed....

That makes Dallas Morning News and Houston Chronicle for Romney. Those idiots in San Antonio are endorsing obozo. I can’t find where Austin A/S holes are but we can certainly guess...
If I hadn’t booked late and will lose money I would cancel my trip tomorrow to San Antonio if I saw their endorsement in time.
Just got back from a business trip to Houston. No offense, Houstonites, but what an armpit! It has all the traffic of Los Angeles with none of the attractiveness.
All these papers are just proving how stupid they were and still are. Anyone who could not see through Obama is an idiot.
Houston is humming and it should (will) be roaring. Texas is still standing and Houston is bed rock solid (if sitting on "gumbo" clay).
The Orlando Sentinel endorsed Romney.
Tampa-St.Pete Times went for Obama.
Giant Yawn: Mainstream Media Still Supports Odinga.
Those idiots in San Antonio are endorsing obozo.
Who are the idiots in California voting for?.......
I’ve visited Houston several times and found it attractive....don’t know where it gets it’s ugly reputation. It’s not Kansas City with more fountains than Paris, but it’s nice.
In addition to projects waiting to start, we're also hearing that owners and companies will release even more projects - more than we can imagine - across the state, once Romney is elected. I imagine the same will hold true, across the country.
Like Rush said, it will be a recovery like we've never seen!
You only visit the nicer areas. It’s a huge city.
With a HUGE Port!
A HUGE medical center!
Very NICE people!
America is waiting to be unleashed.
Same people they always do. obozo knows he has their vote.
Who are those idiots in NY and Mass voting for?
Why do you ask?
San Antonio’s mayor’s mom is Rosie Castro. Rosie Castro was the first chairwoman of the Bexar County Raza Unida Party. They believe Texas belongs to Mexico....the Atzlan group. How and why this city elected this lefty, I’ll never understand.
Idiotic naifs at the Houston Chronicle. What exactly did they think he'd do when he said he would bankrupt power companies trying to build coal plants and "other countries wouldn't be alright with us heating our buildings to 72F and driving SUVs"?
Let's hope they've learned something in four years...never trust lying communists.
