Los Angeles News Group Endorsement: Mitt Romney for president {PASADENA STAR NEWS!}
PASADENA STAR NEWS ^ | 10/27/12 | Los Angeles News Group "Pasadena Star News"

Posted on 10/28/2012 3:11:08 PM PDT by Republic Rocker

Four years ago, as America faced serious trouble at home and abroad, this news organization embraced the need for bold change to a different brand of leadership and endorsed Barack Obama for president. That assessment of the depth of the nation's problems and the most promising solution was correct in 2008. Regrettably, it applies no less in 2012, after nearly a full term of Obama's administration. This is why the editorial board urges voters to choose Mitt Romney for president in the Nov. 6 election. He is the leader this country needs for the future.

Four years ago, the editorial board's willingness to change horses in the middle of a churning river led us to call for voters to break the Republican hold on the White House and try a Democrat with a fresh spark.

Today, it leads the editorial board to urge voters to say "enough" to a Democratic administration whose sincere best has turned out disappointing, and install a seasoned leader with a record of fixing problems.

Mitt Romney is that seasoned leader.

Pretty well states the case for Romney.

This, along with the Des Moines Register endorsing Mitt is telling. Why would these liberal papers endorse someone who will loose te election? I think the papers might know the ground game and it is awful for the chair.

Nobody fought in California. It’s lost. It’s lost mostly because we don’t make our case there. It’s just looney not to fight for the fifty-five electoral votes, but I guess the four in New Hampshire are more important.

We surrender California every four years, and fight like demons for states with less than 10% of California’s electoral total.

When our national leaders do this, they take a pass on educating the public. We in California can do so, but who has the most visible platform to do it from?

The Hispanics in California have family values. They value jobs. They want good education. Many are devout Christians. Despite this, the state is treated like a poor step-child every four years.

As so it goes...

Just what I would expect, their endorsing a liberal who has pushed forward mandated health care, and raised taxes, and implemented homosexuals calling themselves married. Hardly a contest vs Obama. Maybe next time we can nominate Hillary Clinton as the consensus Republican candidate.

It is not just the ground game, because let's face it, their readers are liberals.

Their job is news and rumors. They know what is coming and in a month do you want it remembered that your paper endorsed Obama when the hearings start, and they are going to.

Libya is about more than 4 dead and a refusal to help, it is also about why they were there and the back story of what was going on. This thing has the power to destroy dems on so many levels if the rumors going around Washington are even slightly true.

Dems at all levels are running for the hills unless they are in the line of fire or working directly for Obama. Crickets are chirping all over the place in the media, Congress and the Senate. Do you remember this ever happening for any other dem scandal? They always brazen it out in public and on the air, they are not this time.

It’s GREAT, FWIW. It’s a smack down of the Marxist and great for Romney.

It would be God’s miracle for CA to go to Romney/Ryan.

CA is written off in presidential elections on the GOP side, because it’s so costly for the campaigns and in 2010 Moonbeam and the rats swept.

Heartbreaking to me because I’m a 3rd generation native of the state and remember the days when the democrats didn’t automatically win.

This might have been the year, but our side has fallen for that one too many times, I reckon.

They want the Jefe (Caudillo) to take the money from the gringos and give it to them.

A charming little family with their tattoos, spitting, and chattering in Spanish was next to me on the beach this morning. The venom in their eyes for me and my kid was obvious.

The only "family values" they have ever demonstrated is "more of us, fewer of them".

Don't BS yourself. And by the way, can you give me a good answer why California should be majority Mexican?

From 1846 to 2010, that wasn't true. How is it possible that a foreign populace can simply lay claim to an American state, and we all cower in fear and acquiesce to it?

On the other hand, the state recalled its liberal governor a few years ago, and elected a Republican. True, his name was Schwarzenegger, but still you can’t say a major effort wasn’t made. Also, this state put in the “three strikes law” which lowered major crimes by a lot by putting repeat offenders away for the long term. Finally, this state passed a defense of marriage initiative. It got challenged in court, but it won a popular vote.

I’m not writing it off. yet.

Depending on the next 4 years of a Romney Adm, this will be the last election that Republicans will avoid California.. Trust me, if we turn the economy around in any determinable way, Cali. is up for grabs..

I agree with you, I think this cycle will be a shock at how close we get.. I am guessing 6%-8%, clearly within striking distance, not because they love us, but that they are so fed up with Obama..

I decided to do some of my own independent polling.

I ventured into the cultural heart of Los Angeles, through Checkpoint Cholo, and found that among a combination of illegal, likely, unlikely and voters with five or more votes, Pedro, from NapOLEon Dynamite is going to win in a landslide as a write-in candidate.

Whittier Daily News also has this same FULL PAGE endorsement, they are part of the Los Angeles News Group.

In SoCal, I don’t think young people would say OMG any more, my son would say, “Dude!”.

Am praying for Mitt Romney. I ask our new American saint, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, to ask our Lord on our behalf to save this great country of ours.

You both have valid points, but there is no single “Hispanic” population. Here in NJ we have several different groups of them, with their own traits & priorities. The more established ones are assimilated, and vote along the same lines as the larger American population; younger newcomers are here for the safety net, and breed to reap the benefits (it is amazing how many of the younger women are pregnant). Many of them are no longer Catholic, and attend storefront evangelical churches (if they attend any at all).

As for why California is Mexican today, it is probably because it was Mexican in 1845; when the US took territory from Mexico it didn’t have the ethnic cleansing that Britain had in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick when they won the war for Canada. The US probably continues to absorb Hispanic immigrants because in a gobal economy we are a nation of merely 300 million, competing with two Asian powers of over a billion people each; here in the northeast whole neighborhoods would be ghost towns if they didn’t let illegals fill them.

It is way beyond legalized abortion; many Americans have stopped breeding along the lines of Western Europeans, and we import Hispanics in the manner in which Europe imports Africans. Even if we outlawed abortion today, Americans won’t go back to the days of families; the Pope attributes it to selfishness, and I concur.

It’s treated that way because its a hopeless basket case.

Proposition 8
Eliminates the Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry

For / Against
7,001,084 / 6,401,482
52.3% / 47.7%


Hmm, then how did the basket-case electorate figure this one out?  And why couldn't they figure other things out, if approached with a loud reasoned Conservative voice?

My god you elected Jerry Brown, AGAIN!


I did?  Oh really?

Here are the results of the 2010 Election specific to Jerry Brown.

Jerry Brown 5,428,149 53.8%
Meg Whitman 4,127,391 40.9%


Brown won the election by 12.9%.  So thrilled was the electorate with the choice between Whitman and Brown, that 5.3% of the voters went third party.  If we could have appealed to those voters, the spread would have been 7.6%.  That would mean that a swing of only 3.8% + 1 would have won this for the Libtard the California leadership foisted off on us.

I refused to vote of either of these idiots.

Don't blame Californians for getting it wrong, when we have the whole Democrat party and the California Republican Party leadership tag-teaming against us.  If you think I was going to vote for another idiot-stick Feaux-Conservative, you're crazy.

What was on the agenda in 2010?

1. We were coming off seven years of the Libtard Schwarzenegger(R)
2. We were lofting the Leftist likes of Meg (I so want you to believe I am a Conservative, even though I'm not) Whitman(R)
3. She was another McCain accolyte, a fraud from the word go as a Conservative

4. The state's Republican leadership thinks folks won't figure that out.  They're nuts.

In 2010 every state wide office went to the Rats.

Sure did.  You P off enough Conservatives, and a good number of them will stay home.  I voted for every slot except the top one, but others are so P'd off, they don't.  Frankly, I don't blame them either.  What's the use?  The better candidates are abandoned by the leadership.  It's an act of futility to even go to the polls.  Thankfully we vote for governor in off years.  If this vote would have taken place in 2008, Brown would have won by 20 + percent.

The rest of us don’t want our money being pissed down a rat hole, and it costs a fortune to compete there.


Presidential candidates of either party rarely campaign in California toward the end of the election season, given the state’s Democratic tilt. But it is a popular stop on the fundraising circuit, with its residents donating the most of any state to the 2012 presidential campaign. Romney has raised $19.3 million [in state]... LINK

You don't want your money wasted in our state?  LOL  Well, frankly I'd like our tens of millions spent in our state for a change.  Imagine that!

If our gubenatoral candidates are sound, the state leadership abandons them.  If they're Liberals, the state leadership pulls out all the stops to support them. Then the national leadership supports Leftists, and those Leftists couldn't make an effective appeal in the state even if they did show up here.

There is strong evidence that Californians are receptive to appeals on core issues.  Those appeals are never made.  And then I see folks come to the conclusion that Hispanics will not vote for our people.  Ridiculous.

Read up on what issues are important to Hispanics.  It might surprise you when you find out that illegal immigration fixes are not at the top of their list.  Despite this, we don't appeal to them on the matters they do care about, and do appeal for their votes on this issue.  LINK

The RNC is lost in space, and as it relates to California a lot of other people are too.

And of course, it's always good to know that folks caling themselves Conservative are in favor of surrendering states to the Left.  Our troops on foreign lands risking their lives for every inch of our soil, must be thrilled to know it.


Regulator:

You should discuss illegal immigration with Hispanics.  You'd be suprised to know that many of them are angry about it too.  Guess who the first people to lose jobs are, when they've worked their way up to a better position, only to be let go and replaced by illegal immigrants.  People in Mexico laugh at us.  They think we're the biggest idiots on the planet for allowing what we do.  A lot of Hispanics here do too.

 The Hispanics in California have family values. They value jobs. They want good education. Many are devout Christians

They want the Jefe (Caudillo) to take the money from the gringos and give it to them.  Some do.  Some don't.  What you forget is that there are plenty of Hispanics whose families have been here for genearations, who have worked hard to own their own homes and small/large businesses.  They too are negatively impacted by high crime and the burden of millions of moochers on our society.

A charming little family with their tattoos, spitting, and chattering in Spanish was next to me on the beach this morning. The venom in their eyes for me and my kid was obvious.  Yes, you're going to run into people like that.  But then what has our government done to: 1: Stop the flooding of our nation with foreign nationals? 2: Stop gang crime dead in it's tracks?

We should very seldom have to run into folks like that.  The fact that we do, is glaring proof that our government has abandoned us here.

The only "family values" they have ever demonstrated is "more of us, fewer of them".  Okay, once again, you are assuming that all Hispanics favor illegal immigration.  They don't.

Don't BS yourself. And by the way, can you give me a good answer why California should be majority Mexican?  Evidently you haven't seen one post (comment) of mine on the subject over the last 26 years.

From 1846 to 2010, that wasn't true. How is it possible that a foreign populace can simply lay claim to an American state, and we all cower in fear and acquiesce to it? 
Excellent question.  I've been asking the same thing for more than a quarter of a century.  Now that we have 20 - 35 million illegal immigrants here, good luck.  I recommend the following.

1. Stop all immigration dead in it's tracks for twenty to thirty years.  Make few exceptions as needed based on value of the individual to our society.
2. Place troops on our border with Mexico, and bullets in their weapons.
3. End all employment to illegal immigrants, on penalty of ten year prison sentences and the confiscation, shuttering of businesses.
4. If you have been here long enough to purchase property, you will be given twelve months to unload it.  Then go back to the nation of your origin, and take your children with you.

We didn't create this mess.  The illegal immigrant did.

Our government certainly contributed to it.  Hell, they subsidized it.

I didn't want to respond to you here without LINKing you to a response I made to Regulator.

You both have valid points, but there is no single “Hispanic” population. Here in NJ we have several different groups of them, with their own traits & priorities. The more established ones are assimilated, and vote along the same lines as the larger American population; younger newcomers are here for the safety net, and breed to reap the benefits (it is amazing how many of the younger women are pregnant). Many of them are no longer Catholic, and attend storefront evangelical churches (if they attend any at all).

I agree with your comments.  And by the way, welcome to the same ANCHOR BABY situation we have been putting up with in Southern California (and other places) for the last 25 years.  Over 90% of the births in the Los Angeles County run hospitals, are the children of illegal immigrant parents.  Almost that same percentage of "all services" are provided for illegal immigrants.  We've got a multi-billion dollar county health care system that almost exclusively provides services to the citizens of other nations.  Talk about your sick screwed up situation...

As for why California is Mexican today, it is probably because it was Mexican in 1845; when the US took territory from Mexico...

The United States fought a war with Mexico around 1845, in a dispute over the future of the Western Territory.  The U. S. won.  Despite this, it also paid Mexico for the Western Territory.

That territory wasn't the traditional centuries old property of Mexico.  A European entity had claimed the Western Territories.  Spain claimed it.  In 1820, it left the Americas, and the Western Territory became Mexico's.  The U. S. had made prior stands against European claims to the Americas.  It didn't recognize Spain's claim.  It didn't recognize Mexico's ownership either.

There's this mental picture that folks have come to believe in, that Mexico proper once extended far north into the area that is now the United States.  Truth is, that whole area was populated by various American Indians.  Mexican nationals were not heavily populating the area that is now the United States.  Very little Mexican population was inhabiting Southern California at that time either.

The San Gabriel Mission in the mid 1700s, had a thriving concern in what is now East Los Angeles.  They had upwards of ten thousand head of live-stock.  And at the time, they were dealing with Indians, not Mexicans to help with that livestock.

Mexico had a claim on the territory for 25 years.  That's it.  We've had it for 167 years.  Mexico didn't improve the land.  Look what we have done with it.

The idea that today's Mexican nationals are merely reclaiming what was once Mexico, is silly.


...it didn’t have the ethnic cleansing that Britain had in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick when they won the war for Canada. The US probably continues to absorb Hispanic immigrants because in a g
lobal economy we are a nation of merely 300 million, competing with two Asian powers of over a billion people each; here in the northeast whole neighborhoods would be ghost towns if they didn’t let illegals fill them.

If we need more citizens, it would be more healthy if we were to make policies that would be more family friendly.  It is not healthy to move people here who have no loyalty to our nation whatsoever.

And frankly, I'm not convinced we can't compete with other highly populated nations as it is, and turning our nation into a hovel on the order of their's, isn't my idea of fixing things.

That probably sounds overly hostile.  I'm not intending it to be.  I appreciate the comments.  Take care.

I understand your point. Let me approach it this way.

We will be spending somewhere between half and three quarters of a billion dollars to get Romney elected.

We can’t afford $5 to $10 million dollars to present Conservatism to Californian’s with a loud voice?

If you do a probabilistic analysis in cost - benefit it probably is not worth the expenditure.

While Mi, Wi, Ohio, PA have already being trending GOP CA has been heading the other way. It resisted the GOP landslide in 2010 and re-elected the universally acknowledged
most wigged out RAT in the whole koven.

California, like Illinois, is a lost cause. If we win the four states above or even two of them we win the election. And those chances are very good. Chances in California would be a wild long shot.

Awesome!

I like that a small bag of fries feeds about four people.

Spain itself had tried to intercept Lewis & Clark when they set out to survey the Louisiana Purchase, because they knew what is could mean to Spanish claims far north of LA (Colorado, Montana, Sacramento are Spanish names for a reason). It wasn’t “Mexico proper”; it was Spain (Santa Anna was a Spanish officer before he became a Mexican one).

I agree that we should fill our nation by breeding Americans (of any background) rather than importing foreigners; I also think the costs associated with many of those imported are not worth it (the two issues are very much related, as Americans forego children in part to deal with the costs of subsidizing the newcomers). Most imported workers (in any field) lower the standards of living for those Americans forced to compete with them.

Interesting discussion!

You’re right on track there IMO.

So sorry for the vehemence, but thought you might have been going soft...was very surprised!

I can believe that people in SoCal could be emotionally throwing in the towel: seems like the takeover has been all but accomplished.

But we should remain the Loyal Resistance!

Remember, you have Jan Brewer just a few hundred miles away...and she hasn't given in!

I think about this all the time, RD. our only hope is to surprise the country one election and either win or come in very close. After that, we will get some attention.

It’s not a matter of giving up. It’s a matter of realizing when you’ve been sold out. Today California, tomorrow Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and points North and East.

When will folks in other states wake up and realize Conservative Californians need help, not a dagger in the back.

Obama was 19.7% ahead at one point. Today he is 16.3% ahead. It’s a start. ;^)

In truth, half a lead plus one is all the person trailing needs.

I agree with your take on it.
