Hikarumbah- 28 Newspapers (And Counting) That Endorsed Obama In 2008 Change Their Minds In 2012

Published on October 30, 2012

#4 – Orlando Sentinel: “We Have Little Confidence That Obama Would Be More Successful Managing The Economy And The Budget In The Next Four Years.” “We have little confidence that Obama would be more successful managing the economy and the budget in the next four years. For that reason, though we endorsed him in 2008, we are recommending Romney in this race.” (Editorial, “Our Pick For President: Romney,” Orlando Sentinel , 10/19/12)

  • Orlando Sentinel : “Economic Growth, Three Years Into The Recovery, Is Anemic.” “Economic growth, three years into the recovery, is anemic. Family incomes are down, poverty is up. Obama’s Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, highlighted these and other hard truths in this week’s second debate. Even the September jobless numbers deserve an asterisk, because more than 4 million Americans have given up looking for work since January 2009. And while the nation’s economy is still sputtering nearly four years after Obama took office, the federal government is more than $5 trillion deeper in debt. It just racked up its fourth straight 13-figure shortfall.” (Editorial, “Our Pick For President: Romney,” Orlando Sentinel , 10/19/12)

#5 – Sun Sentinel [Fort Lauderdale, FL] : Despite Obama’s “Promise Of Hope And Change,” “We Have Little Reason To Believe He Can Turn Things Around.” “When President Obama came into office in 2009, the economy was in freefall and though untested, he inspired us with his promise of hope and change. Now, four years later, we have little reason to believe he can turn things around. So while we endorsed Obama in 2008, we recommend voters choose Republican Mitt Romney on Nov. 6.” (Editorial, “Sun Sentinel Endorses Mitt Romney For President,” Sun Sentinel, 10/26/12)

  • Sun Sentinel : After Four Years Of The Obama Economy, “Growth Is Sputtering,” “Family Incomes Are Down,” And “Poverty Is Up.” “To most Americans, only one thing matters – the economy. Four years into Barack Obama’s presidency, economic growth is sputtering. Family incomes are down. Poverty is up. Business owners are reluctant to assume risk in the face of unending uncertainty. Many are holding on by their fingernails, desperate for signs of an economic recovery that will help them provide for themselves, their employees, their customers and their communities.” (Editorial, “Sun Sentinel Endorses Mitt Romney For President,” Sun Sentinel, 10/26/12)
  • Sun Sentinel : Obama “Failed To Focus On Job One: Jobs.” “The president had enormous opportunity when he took office, with Democrats controlling both houses of Congress. But he failed to focus on Job One: Jobs.” (Editorial, “Sun Sentinel Endorses Mitt Romney For President,” Sun Sentinel, 10/26/12)
