There aren’t many people who believe Mitt Romney has a prayer of winning in Massachusetts, however that might depend on how many people read this absolutely devastating endorsement of Mitt by the Sentinel & Enterprise
Romney has faced economic challenges at key points in his professional and political careers and has always seemed to grow in the job to deliver greater expectations than when he went in. President Obama, on the other hand, lacked any prior experience before entering the White House in 2008 and appears overwhelmed by the one serious economic challenge he has confronted.
The complements to Romney are strong but the brickbats swung at the President are not something you would expect to read from a Massachusetts paper that endorsed him the last time around.
President Obama continues to say America is in an economic recovery. The families broken by his recovery, whose cornerstone was Obama’s $787 billion economic stimulus package, know otherwise: Public-sector employees and union workers got “shovel-ready” projects and dollars; the private-sector got the shaft and more regulations.
In 2008, an unproven Obama promised things would turn out differently with him in charge. “Change we can believe in” is how he put it. Four years later we realize it was all made up.
All made up? Can we make it sound even worse? YES IT CAN!
Obama isn’t even trying to defend the indefensible — his failing four-year record. Instead, in partisan style he is blaming others, including Democrat and Republican predecessors, for driving America to the edge of fiscal insolvency.
When Obama looks into a mirror, he must see Jimmy Carter staring back at him.
I suspect Jon Golnik running in Fitchburg for Ma-3 must love that part since his opponent Niki Tsongas IS trying to defend the record the President is not.
President Obama makes a weak case for re-election. He says his policies need four more years to kick in. This from a commander-in-chief who hasn’t passed a federal budget in three years, hasn’t submitted a comprehensive energy bill in four years, and hasn’t given voters an inkling of where America might be headed through 2016. Where’s your plan, Mr. President?
Remember this is a MASSACHUSETTS Newspaper in a City with a Democrat Mayor, a majority Democrat City council, a Democrat State Rep and a Democrat State Senator represented by a Democrat Congressman.
In The Sentinel & Enterprise’s view, that’s where America has fallen off track these past four years. America trusted a “hope and change” candidate, it didn’t work, and we’re suffering the consequences. Now we’ve got a tested leader with a proven track record standing before us — Mitt Romney — and it’s his time to inspire Americans to greatness.
When Newspapers who endorsed Obama in 2008 in Massa D+26 chusetts are writing editorials like this with two weeks to go before election that means one thing:
I would urge every voter in American and Massachusetts to go over and read the whole glorious thing.
Update: The Ride Right through them belonged after that “when Newspapers” paragraph, not before. Fixed
