Mitt Romney for president
Nashua Telegraph ^

Posted on 10/30/2012 3:44:33 PM PDT by Perdogg

Four years ago, with little hesitation, we endorsed then-Sen. Barack Obama to become the 44th president of the United States, saying it was a time for “new leadership, a new approach to governing, a new way of conducting the people’s business.”

So the basic question facing The Telegraph editorial board when it met last week came down to this: Did the former Illinois senator do enough to live up to those admittedly high expectations to warrant a second term?

After several hours of spirited debate, not unlike conversations taking place in kitchens and living rooms across America, we reached a consensus that he had not. Perhaps more importantly, when we identified the key challenges facing the nation – jobs, the economy and the national debt – we concluded he was not the best candidate to meet them.

That person is former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and we hereby endorse him to become the 45th president of the United States.

During his many years in the private and public sectors, Romney has demonstrated the critical leadership skills necessary to bring people together toward a common goal.

He did it when he founded a successful investment firm at age 37. He did it when he helped rescue a scandal-plagued Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002. And he did it when he worked with an overwhelmingly Democratic Legislature after being elected governor of Massachusetts that same year.

As we noted when we endorsed Romney for the GOP nomination prior to the New Hampshire primary in January, Washington is broken. In order to fix it, it will take a strong leader willing to roll up his sleeves and work directly with the heads of both parties to carve out the best possible solutions.

We believe Romney has demonstrated that he can do that; the president has had four years to demonstrate that he can’t.

To be clear, we didn’t make the decision not to endorse Obama for a second term lightly. Nor do we believe, like many of his critics, that he is without achievement during his time in office.

At the very least, walking into the second-worst economic crisis in the nation’s history, the president and his administration deserve credit for steadying the ship of state through a combination of middle-class tax cuts, a stimulus program and a rescue of the auto industry.

And there can be no denying that House and Senate Republicans did everything in their power to stymie the president’s agenda, even putting the nation at risk of default during the debt-ceiling debacle of 2011.

But true leaders find ways to work around such obstacles, much like Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton did during their terms in office.

True leaders also don’t wait until two weeks before Election Day – in the form of a 20-page booklet, no less – to lay out a specific agenda for the next four years. Coupled with the negative tenor of the campaign, that merely confirms the president and his strategists felt that attacking Romney’s agenda was more politically expedient than releasing one of their own.

Some cynics have suggested, only partly in jest, that Obama-Romney is at its core a contest between a man with no plan and man with a plan that doesn’t add up, a reference to Romney’s own unwillingness to lay out details of how he would balance his campaign promises with his tax-and-spending plans.

Nevertheless, we are confident Romney is the candidate who would tackle the serious issues facing this nation, starting with jobs, the economy and the debt. In the end, we couldn’t say the same about the president.

I remember when Nashua was conservative...

Obama spoon fed his cronies, and we have a 16 trillion debt, but these mopes don’t mention this.

>>“new leadership, a new approach to governing, a new way of conducting the people’s business.”<<

Instead they got old school Chicago type thuggery. The only hope for most Americans was to have a little change in their pocket.

The “post-racial” president uses race more than Paris Hilton uses a credit card.

Looks like a mixed bag of nuts to me.

I want Romney to get every vote he can, but if I were Romney, I’d tell this lib rag to take its halfwit endorsement and stuff it.......

Translation:

The progressives and leftists who now man the editorial board of the Nashua Telegraph are fearful that the Obama regime will kill the host to the various parasitic entitlement programs which they almost to a man ( and woman) champion. In other words the parasite Obama is about to kill their cash cow, something they cannot permit.

I think Romney will not be so hard on things like the Community Reinvestment Act which floated the debacle through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that resulted in the necessity for TARP.

That fight is not over, as the “Bankster lawsuit” reveals. Various banks laundered some 43 Trillion dollars of TARP money, and after salting those funds away with very extended repayment terms ( if ever)to the federal government, they now seek to double down their intake of Trillions by foreclosing on the owners who were subjected to the entire grift from the left.

As a result a Bankster ( so called) lawsuit has been initiated, and many feel that the recent murder of a
a CNBC executives children are related to keeping the details of the suit under published until after the Presidential Election.

The question folks are asking is who did it? Were they Banksters or Obama operatives who committed this assassination? Things are getting very angry in the Liberal Fascist halls of MSM propaganda. The lid is coming OFF.

This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains.

The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.
Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters.

Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances.

It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later.

According to mainstream accounts the children’s nanny is responsible for the murders, allegedly stabbing both children.

However, those same mainstream news sources report the highly unlikely story that the nanny slit her own throat just after committing the homicides.

Police have released very little information and although a wider plot has not been officially implicated, it seems very possible that these murders are a show of force against the press organization for releasing such damning information about the most powerful people in the world.

Here is some more information about the lawsuit from the Wall Street Journal:

“In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP — on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws — has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000.00) by the “Banksters” and their co-conspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the “bailout programs” by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other “bailout money” advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress.

Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the “Banksters” criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama’s campaign from these same “Banksters” to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the “Bankster” Defendants. “

Some of the alleged conspirators are Attorney General Holder, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster),

Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary,

Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup),

Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor),

Anita Dunn (a former “communications director” for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the “Banksters” themselves, and their affiliates and conduits.

It is expected that all news on this subject will be removed from CNBC, and that other news organizations will be discouraged from covering such information.
However, screen shots of the original CNBC article were taken to verify the authenticity of this story.

Assassination and brute intimidation are common strategies for the ruling class to use on people who may threaten their agenda.

This is the second situation this week in which a high level executive was the victim of a suspicious attack that seemed very much like an assassination.

The Intel Hub just reported that Nicholas Mockford, a 60 year old British executive for the oil company ExxonMobil was shot dead in front of his wife in an assassination-style killing in Brussels.

We will be keeping a close eye on both of these stories and provide more details as they become available.

Book Description
Publication Date: September 4, 2012 | Series: Bankster Chronicles

>>>>> Within these pages, you will learn the origin of modern banking. It is a shadowy world of bankers cloaked in mystical incantations and alchemy, conjuring money out of thin air. . . . And deeply embedded in its heritage, the banking cartel will be revealed as a culture of unspeakable violence - violence they use to advance their plan for world domination!

Also within these pages, you will know of fierce patriots who see the oncoming threat from the banksters and fight them on their terms - taking advantage of the cracks and fissures of their paper money system to defeat the banksters’ nefarious schemes.

And then there are the common people, those who live, love, suffer, and perish at the hands of the banksters - for history also unfolds through their eyes!

Epic in scope, this novel teaches our system of money through the eyes of a ‘Council of Bankers’ - a council lead by a family of bankers of ancient heritage. Within this family, you will know Lord Basil, both as a child and as an aging patriarch; and you will see history unfold through his eyes as he molds the world according to his family’s plan, not yet sensing the rising resistance he ultimately will face.

This first installment (Book One) chronicles the beginning of modern banking, and then advances to the present, depicting the economic malaise and depression we’re living today.

There is a promise within these pages: “this story will shatter your convictions about money, and about power.”<<<<

This Bankster Story and the Benghazi Treason by the President are the two stories that the Nashua Telegraph Editorial Board should be revealing, instead of a simple boiler plate announcement of support of Romney.America is “underwhelmed.”

This is an excellent editorial, and a reasonable description of the situation, though it lacks some detailed insights. I also believe that their failure to mention Israel, Russia, China or Benghazi at all reflects shallow analysis, though nothing in those arenas would change their conclusion, and that would beg inclusion of social issues analysis. That would muddy this clear choice based on economic issues, which is definitely the voters’ highest priority.

Very good for Romney.

” At the very least, walking into the second-worst economic crisis in the nation’s history, the president and his administration deserve credit for steadying the ship of state through a combination of middle-class tax cuts, a stimulus program and a rescue of the auto industry. “

This alone, damns these writers.
If they had left this out, I would concur with your opinion.
They endorsed Romney, which is more than I expected.
Many liberal newspapers in or near Los Angeles endorsed Romney, and wrote about their reasoning much better than this.

Now that we appear to be in the end game, there are closets filling with bodies. One wonders why so many people meeting convenient deaths is not “news.” At the very least our brother bankers here at home should know whats going on in that kettle of fish. I’ll send you anything else that might come along.
