Liberal paper sees the light somehow or other:

http://www.newsday.com/opinion/editorial-elect-mitt-romney-president-of-the-united-states-1.4182689

Quote:
Had Barack Obama done the job of president with the same passion and vision he displayed in seeking it, he would likely deserve another term. He did not.
Against this we must weigh Mitt Romney, an imperfect candidate but one who has a special track record too. From his creation of a vast personal fortune to his successful stewardship of the threatened Salt Lake City Olympics to his governing of Massachusetts, Romney's life is a tale of success after success, many of them achieved in difficult circumstances.
Romney's potential to put America back to work earns him our endorsement.

Voting for Bork Obunga at this juncture is irrational and amounts to voting for the United States to fail. It shouldn't be that surprising if the remnants of left-of-center people who are still halfway rational figure it out.

@gungasnake,
turning the economy back over to the people who made the mess and not letting Obama finish the cleanup would be the zenith of irrationality. SO my vote cancels your vote.

All your , and spurts.attempts at spin and endorsements from "major" news segments are signs that youre getting desparate eh?.

@farmerman,
You're referring to the mythical claim that Bork "inherited(TM)" the economic meltdown of 08 from Bush and the GOP... He didn't; he inherited it from Chris Dodd and Barney Frank and other demoKKKrats, Bush and Cheney had repeatedly tried to warn the country about what was going on and nobody listened.

@gungasnake,
Bush had two "off the books" wars , a huge tax cut, an inability for the govt to negotiate pill prices, a "Bush" edict to make sure that everyone can own a home now, program, a decree that made the oil industries unanswerable to any environmental laws (which cost several states incluing Pa billions). Oh yeh, a total dibursement of any surpluses . Of course he was the father of the real estate bubble and you know it

.

The plutocrats didnt "warn" **** about anything. Bush and Darth were saying that "The fundamentals of our economy are strong, even when hestood by and watched the steepest drop of the Stock Market in 50 years, and took us to the very brink of depression.

WHY WOULD ANY GOP even admit that Bush was one of them? (Oh wait, thats sorta the strategy of the whole Thurston Romney campaign isnt it?)

Rs and Ds represent flip sides of the same coin. They both represent party interests and power over governing. The only change I believe in is the change that eliminates the two party system as we know it.

@JPB,
the two parties have nothing to gain allowing a more parliamentarian type of participation. We cant handle more than two parties and they certainly will stack the deck in their favor.
Id like to see a three (or four party ) control system similar to several attempts in our history.
Self interests are unique to both sides and its getting quite annoying and tiresome each election cycle where we are forced to almost tear this country apart by demoniing each other because weak mins believe that their candidate is "the good guy"

I would like to see the Dems break into a socialist nd a left center party, and the GOp's break into a "Rockerfeller Republican" and a "right wing GOP" party. Then itd be like the plyoffs

@farmerman,
Gunga and Spurt both believe in their hearts that the US is amajority of these hir pulling right wingers and all stats show otherwise. The vast majority of mericans are centrists and ,as Set has always said, are focused conservatives about chosen subjects.

Just one statistic shows what total crap you're peddling, gunga. In the 90s, Fannie and Freddy between them had a market share of just under 50%. Just before the Bush-Republican meltdown, their combined market share had fallen to just over 20%--that's a decline of nearly 60%. PRIVATE financial institutions selling PRIVATELY-CREATED financial instruments slicing and dicing up PRIVATELY-GENERATED subprime mortgages and other PRIVATELY-GENERATED risky mortgages and deals to other PRIVATE financial institutions and PRIVATE investors completely dominated the total market. The private financial sector was by far the largest group of players. They'd marginalized Fannie and Freddie, and the PRIVATE sector was where the risky stuff largely originated and was purchased. It was conservatice economic misfeasance that produced the meltdown, and it was Obama that dug us out. Vote Romney and we'll tank again, and some Democrat in 2016 will have to dig us out again. Vote Obama and the economy will continue the steady course upward it's been on since 2009. Your choice, gunga, and I know you're going to make the wrong one. Some idiots just never learn.

And I might add, the premise of this thread just shows that the right-wing's whole MSM meme is just a total ficition anyway.
