Obama just received endorsements from the editorial boards of — the Salt Lake Tribune, the Tampa Bay Times, and the Denver Post.
Utah’s paper’s endorsement reads as follows:
In considering which candidate to endorse, The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board had hoped that Romney would exhibit the same talents for organization, pragmatic problem solving and inspired leadership that he displayed here more than a decade ago [for the 2002 Winter Olympics].
Instead, we have watched him morph into a friend of the far right, then tack toward the center with breathtaking aplomb. Through a pair of presidential debates, Romney’s domestic agenda remains bereft of detail and worthy of mistrust.
Therefore, our endorsement must go to the incumbent, a competent leader who, against tough odds, has guided the country through catastrophe and set a course that, while rocky, is pointing toward a brighter day. The president has earned a second term. Romney, in whatever guise, does not deserve a first.
Christ, if you can’t even get the endorsement from Utah – it’s time to throw in the towel – “WILLARD”!
Game, Set, Match.
Let the “Blow-Out” (AND IT WILL BE A BLOW-OUT) – begin!
(Remember, We Ride So You Don’t Have To!)
