OUCH! Washington Post Obama Endorsement Gets Downright Vicious!on October 25, 2012 at 8:08 pm
A refreshingly open and frank endorsement of the Obama administration, warts and all, almost pales in comparison to the hostile (yet still accurate) depiction of a hypothetical Romney presidency:
Mr. Romney, by contrast, has embraced his party’s reality-defying ideology that taxes can always go down but may never go up. Along that road lies a future in which interest payments crowd out everything else a government should do, from defending the nation to caring for its poor and sick to investing in its children. Mr. Romney’s future also is one in which an ever-greater share of the nation’s wealth resides with the nation’s wealthy, at a time when inequality already is growing.
I do disagree with the depiction of Obama’s response to the Iranian Green Revolution as ”hesitant and inconstant.” Anything more than a distant nod of support would have be seized upon as a pretense to accuse the protesters of being “puppets of the Americans.” The crackdowns would have been far, far worse if we had gotten involved in even a tangential way. However, the overall tone is pretty fair towards Obama.
I recommend you go read the whole thing yourself. But this is definitely the take away line concerning how unfit for office Romney is:
Every politician changes his mind sometimes; you’d worry if not. But rarely has a politician gotten so far with only one evident immutable belief: his conviction in his own fitness for higher office.
Can anyone, even Fox, make the claim that Mitt Romney is steadfast in his beliefs with a straight face? The Obama campaign should make a commercial out of this ASAP!
