  • The WaPo Kerry Endorsement: Curious and Curiouser

    Townhall.com ^ | December 29, 2012 | Ken Blackwell
    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison. The editorial staff of the Washington Post, surely meant well. They wanted readers to think that Sen. John Kerry’s vast experience in foreign policy over four decades equips him to serve as Secretary of State in the second Obama administration. The editorial, titled “John Kerry: Well-suited to be Secretary of State,” gets that part right. The natty Mr. Kerry certainly looks the part of a globe-trotting senior U.S. diplomat. As to his qualifications for that role, we’re reminded of Frederick the Great’s response when he was urged to make a less...

    Team Obama must be sighing in collective relief this weekend. Pee Wee Herman, the alter ego of actor Paul Reubens, has endorsed President Barack Obama in a typically colorful column over at The Huffington Post. For me, this election is like the choice between store-bought ice cream (maybe even diet Ice Milk), and mouth-watering, homemade, unbelievably delicious frozen custard. How did I arrive at this conclusion? This week President Obama was working hard alongside Governor Bruce Springsteen of New Jersey (boy, he sure has gained some weight) to help the people most in need. It struck me that the choice...

    Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement of yet another chief executive officer of a major U.S. company—and one who is on President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Intel chief executive officer Paul Otellini has endorsed the Republican nominee. Despite his presence on the president’s job council, however, Ortellini has criticized the administration in the past pretty strongly, as noted by Human Events. In 2010, the Intel CEO blasted Democrats in Washington at an Aspen Forum event: Otellini singled out the political state of affairs in Democrat-dominated Washington, saying: “I think this group...

    The single most important issue in this election is ending the national nightmare of Obamacare. If Obamacare if not stopped, it will permanently change the political culture of this country. There will be no going back. America will become a less productive, less wealthy nation. What wealth remains will have to be plowed into Obamacare -- to the delight only of the tens of thousands of government bureaucrats administering it. There won't be one moment marking the end of America. Everything will just gradually get worse, like trains and the tax code, until a bustling, prosperous nation is as distant...

    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...

The paper endorsed Obama in 2008: While the editorial praised both Romney and Obama, the decision ultimately came down to one question, the newspaper stated. “Which candidate could forge the compromises in Congress to achieve these goals? When the question is framed in those terms, Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate.” According to the announcement, the editorial board, which enthusiastically endorsed Romney ahead of the state’s Republican presidential caucuses in January, had “a vigorous debate” over which candidate to choose for...

The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster.

Those forces are eroding women’s access to health care, and their right to control their lives.

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...

To hear the president tell it, Romney's plan would've been a disastrous failure while his own has been a resounding success and proof of the soundness of his economic policies --- but I have a feeling his recent revisits to the issue may have something to do with the possibility that Michigan may turn out to be a little bit...

    Former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term Thursday, telling “CBS This Morning” that he voted for Obama in 2008 but this time was going further and publicly backing him. “We’ve come out of the dive and we’re starting to gain altitude,” Powell said. “The unemployment rate is too high, people are still hurting in housing, but I see that we’re starting to rise up.” Powell said that when Obama took over “the country was in very, very difficult straits. We were in the one of the worst recessions we had seen in...

    (Associated Posers) - Many in the Middle East believe Barack Obama failed to deliver on promises of a new U.S. approach in the region but still prefer him to presidential rival Mitt Romney, who they see as too close to Israel and too keen to project U.S. military might. Compounding the challenge, the Middle East is a region where perceptions of fading U.S. influence have been hardened by Arab uprisings that have toppled dictators who were longtime U.S. allies, bringing Islamists in their place. "I am one of those who is very much disappointed with Obama," said Hassan Nafaa a...

    Four years ago, this newspaper's editorial board enthusiastically endorsed Barack Obama, then a young senator from Illinois, for president of the United States. As much as we admired the long and courageous service of his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, we believed that the nation needed fresh ideas and the fresh start that a leader with Obama's charisma and only-in-America backstory could provide. Today, we recommend President Obama's re-election. He has led the nation back from the brink of depression.

    "Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future." -- JOHN F. KENNEDY There are countless wonderful programs and organizations dedicated to making sure that kids are safe, involved in school and off drugs, out of poverty, eating healthier, not engaging in self-destructive behavior, and achieving their dreams. I remember practicing "stop, drop and roll" in first grade, completing "Dare to Keep Kids Off Drugs" in fifth grade, and having teachers and counselors guide me through the right classes and activities to set me on a successful path to college. As a former teacher, I...
