Washington Post endorses Obama[BARF OR LAUGH ALERT?]
politico44 ^ | 10/25/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 10/25/2012 1:42:10 PM PDT by ColdOne

The Washington Post has decided to back President Obama for reelection — acknowledging the shortcomings of his first term:

President Barack Obama is better positioned to be that navigator than is his Republican challenger, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

We come to that judgment with eyes open to the disappointments of Mr. Obama’s first term. He did not end, as he promised he would, “our chronic avoidance of tough decisions” on fiscal matters. But Mr. Obama is committed to the only approach that can succeed: a balance of entitlement reform and revenue increases. Mr. Romney, by contrast, has embraced his party’s reality-defying ideology that taxes can always go down but may never go up. Along that road lies a future in which interest payments crowd out everything else a government should do

I’m thinking it might be worth keeping notes of some of the comments supporters of His O’liness have made on articles such as this on WaPo.

Would be awfully fun to quote them a few months from now, regardless of which way the election goes.

Okay, but what do the major papers, like the Bugtussle Bugle, Thrifty Nickel, Frisco Free Press, Penny Pincher, Mojave Monitor or the Boll Weevil Bi-Weekly have to say?

I guess the hits by Obama’s Dept of Ed on Post owned Kaplan U (their lone profit center) got the message across to the editorial board.

The Washington Post is catering to its core constituencies — bureaucrats, blacks, homosexuals and liberal-feminist working mothers.

Obama said the Bush Administration’s adding $4 trillion to the deficit was irresponsible. He said he would cut the $10 trillion deficit in half during his first term. He also said if he couldn’t get it done he would be a 1 term president.

He gets away with this?

I bet I could list the number of Republican Presidential candidates endorsed by the Washington Post on the fingers of no hands whatsoever.
