Barack Obama for Re-Election [The New York Times.......]
New York Times ^

Barack Obama for Re-Election

The economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown, and the country could suffer another recession if the wrong policies take hold. The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster. An ideological assault from the right has started to undermine the vital health reform law passed in 2010. Those forces are eroding women’s access to health care, and their right to control their lives. Nearly 50 years after passage of the Civil Rights Act, all Americans’ rights are cheapened by the right wing’s determination to deny marriage benefits to a selected group of us. Astonishingly, even the very right to vote is being challenged.

That is the context for the Nov. 6 election, and as stark as it is, the choice is just as clear.

President Obama has shown a firm commitment to using government to help foster growth. He has formed sensible budget policies that are not dedicated to protecting the powerful, and has worked to save the social safety net to protect the powerless. Mr. Obama has impressive achievements despite the implacable wall of refusal erected by Congressional Republicans so intent on stopping him that they risked pushing the nation into depression, held its credit rating hostage, and hobbled economic recovery.

Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, has gotten this far with a guile that allows him to say whatever he thinks an audience wants to hear. But he has tied himself to the ultraconservative forces that control the Republican Party and embraced their policies, including reckless budget cuts and 30-year-old, discredited trickle-down ideas. Voters may still be confused about Mr. Romney’s true identity, but they know the Republican Party, and a Romney administration would reflect its agenda.

Isn’t the NY Times still reporting ( as recently as yesterday) that the Benghazi attack was “all about the movie “
No wonder readership of this rag is declineing.

Why in the world do sane states with normal people have to be burdened with the disgusting east coast and west coast states? This is simply not a tenable position.

We are no longer “one nation under God” and the sooner a separation takes place, the better it will be for those who love the nation the Founders intended it to be.

Reckless budget cuts, but adding trillions of dollars to the national debt is just fine....

Sulzberger was only able to get in one “the right”, one “right wing”, and one “ultraconservative” in the opening words of this commie tripe?

He’s slipping, just like his finances.

Someone can prove me wrong, but I’m fairly certain since the NY Times began endorsing Presidential candidates in the 1950’s they have never endorsed a Republican. The Washington Post, I believe only has one time...Ike.

Almost as idiotic as the New York Times editorial staff’s endorsement are the comments by the readers to this screed. The Left is worse than bed wetters, they are sycophant bed wetters.

I'm still amazed at the fact that the son of the CEO of "Big Oil" Chevron would grow up to be the efitor-in-chief of the most liberal newspaper in the world. They must have had some interesting holiday dinners at the Keller household over the years.

They all live on the Upper West Side (where I grew up and lived much of my life), think they’re intellectually superior, and talk only to people who are like them and who also think they’re intellectually superior.

Most of them work in publishing, TV, law (but only at lower levels) or in the arts. A lot of them have vague government connections, such as family members working in the schools or state offices, or perhaps grants they have gotten or projects they are working on for one or another level of government. They are quite charming and fun to be with, but they have not a thought that doesn’t pass through their acceptability screening: i.e., is this what I, an incredibly enlightened Upper West Sider, should be thinking?

And I guess they’ve decided to throw it all away, give one last kiss to their beloveds, and go down with the Socialist Ship Obama.

Got to be satire. I'll prove it: He has formed sensible budget policies... Not one of 0bama's budgets have passed the Senate in three years, and it's been controlled by democRATS.

Yep, satire.
