By Mr. Curmudgeon:
Denial is not a river in Egypt. That in effect is the theme of the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel's Friday editorial endorsement of Mitt Romney for president. "When President Obama came into office in 2009, the economy was in freefall and though untested, he inspired us with promise of hope and change. Now, four years later, we have little reason to believe he can turn things around," said the Sentinel.
"... Rather than articulate a compelling vision for growth," continued the Sentinel, "the president falls back on the tired talking point of increasing taxes for the wealthy ... it's hard to see how raising taxes is going to kick start jobs in the private sector."
Having admitted its mistake (the Sentinel endorsed Obama in 2008), the newspaper said, "We believe Romney will help this nation find the political will to address the challenges with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid ... The greatest threat to our national defense is not the size of our military, but the ever-escalating size of our national debt. We must get government spending under control, across the board ... We believe the best chance to get America back working again is to elect Mitt Romney. That's why we endorse him for president."
There is nothing like a near-death experience to help focus the mind.
The excuse making by the president and his supporters is at long last falling flat: They can't explain away nearly 6 trillion dollars added to the nation's debt; they can't explain away the fiscal cliff approaching us this January; they can't explain away 23 million chronically unemployed Americans; they can't explain away the expansion of government power at the expense of the individual - personified by ObamaCare's dictatorial "individual mandate"; they can't explain away a collapsing economy barely held together by Federal Reserve bailouts and quantitative easing; they can't explain away a foreign policy that blames an obscure YouTube video for inspiring the murder of Americans in Libya than admit Al-Qaeda terrorists attacked America on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11; they can't explain away the deaths of a U.S border patrol agent and hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens resulting from their sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels and Central American gangs.
Less than two weeks before Americans head to the polls, the media's blind support for the president is dissolving. It's crunch time, and there are no excuses left for defending the indefensible - that Barack Obama should remain President of the United States.

When I see Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Bahbra Walters talking sh!t about Obama, then I’ll believe the MSM is dissing Obamarama...
Read only if you have not recently eaten! Despite Shortcomings, Obama is the better choice.
The Buffalo News is owned by Warren Buffett.
Yea, I know it’s owned by Buffett. But their editorial board “reasoning” is just unbelievable and a spectacle to behold! I would prefer if Jimmy and not Warren owned the news then maybe would could at least get a pretty good parrot head concert here sometimes.
Or maybe even a cheeseburger or margarita!
Those I can handle on my own! LOL
The liberal media is waking up to the realization that the Benghazi operation is way worse than Iran Contra. The liberal media is waking up to the realization that the coverup of Benghazi is way worse than watergate. And they’re taking pepto bismol right now waiting for the bomb to drop on the money behind Obama’s and Hillary’s ventures into Libya and Egypt and Syria. The Russians and Iranians may just have kicked the Democrat party below the belt. I think that it’s the end of the Democrat party. Ohhhh everything looks brighter today.
As Mitt Romney said, "Bankruptcy concentrates the mind." Indeed.
True enough, but it would have hurt to say it in private company, let alone on their editorial page.
Honesty. Better late than never. We'll need it to stay together and to fix the problems we face or those problems will tear us apart, just like big problems often will in a bad marriage.
Romney/Ryan and the rest of us have a lot of work to do if we are to survive this very educational experience.
