Mormon Newspaper Endorses OBAMA! MSNBC's O'Donnell tries to pick VIDEO fight with one of Romney's kids.

Even Utah Mormons don't like the guy much!

The Salt Lake Tribune explains their decision to endorse Obama HERE; a pretty striking rebuke to Romney actually:
More troubling, Romney has repeatedly refused to share specifics of his radical plan to simultaneously reduce the debt, get rid of Obamacare (or, as he now says, only part of it), make a voucher program of Medicare, slash taxes and spending, and thereby create millions of new jobs. To claim, as Romney does, that he would offset his tax and spending cuts (except for billions more for the military) by doing away with tax deductions and exemptions, is utterly meaningless without identifying which and how many would get the ax. Absent those specifics, his promise of a balanced budget simply does not pencil out.

If this portrait of a Romney willing to say anything to get elected seems harsh, we need only revisit his branding of 47 percent of Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, yet feel victimized and entitled to government assistance. His job, he told a group of wealthy donors, “is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

Where, we ask, is the pragmatic, inclusive Romney, the Massachusetts governor who left the state with a model health care plan in place, the Romney who led Utah to Olympic glory? That Romney skedaddled and is nowhere to be found.


Macho fight after school, MSNBC's O'Donnell picks a fight with prep school Romney son!

 Radioman Response:

While it's sad 4 Americans lost their lives in service to their country during this enemy attack, this event is not a big deal related to the characters of the two men running for President, and what's at stake for these men who have the power and ability to send men and military assets into harm's way.    Wonder if the Republicans will bring this up for yet the THIRD debate of the election?

I fear Romney's deceptive and ever-changing record will cause foreign capitals to doubt the sincerity of any negotiations for peace he conducts.   I find Obama pretty believable in what he tells us, even if I don't agree with it.   Yet, I wouldn't trust anything Romney says, to be candid, based on his Truth Check record of deception. 

I'm not so convinced hearing Romney accuse the President of lying, while he's covered up his business trail over the years by deleting files and emails, and his now famous,  hidden taxes. 

Romney's not a forthright man, by any means.    I don't know if that comes with the business of being a businessman Protesting that Obama tries NOT to get ahead of the facts as they're discovered seems, well, hypocritical.  As Reagan said, "Trust but verify."   Hard to verify, when Romney habitually hides his tracks. 

As Bill Clinton said last night.... if he's hiding things, what does that tell you?"  Wonder if a Ken Star investigating Romney's business behavior would find illegal activity?    Is THAT what this is about?     Could a guy like Star use legal powers to subpoena tax records and spend as much time on Romney as Star did on Clinton?   Could Romney stand up to that scrutiny and stay out of court with all his hidden business dealings??    How arrogant would be a scofflaw to think he can become President and avoid prosecution for his Bain Capital brainchild?    Sorry.  I have no evidence; I'm just a suspicious guy who's gut tells him something really smells bad in the Romney history.   

If that happens, this circus would taint the credibility of virtuous capitalism, and business for decades!     Like the Wall Street deceptions of 2008.   And could bring down the GOP.

But back to the election, it's a viewpoint you won't find on Fox's air, sadly. 
I'm sorry about that.  I don't think it would be a close election if they were more even handed in their reporting.     In fact, I'm not even sure he'd be the nominee because the GOP has some much better people!   I think Fox has disserved their conservative viewers.

Hopefully, Romney will lose and all the trickery will have been for naught.   And Fox will decide to rejoin the campaign for Truth in politics and journalism.  I'm sure MSNBC's vocal left-slant pundits will do it too and we can ALL get back to trusting what we hear!

This man wants to be your President.  Can ya believe it?

I believe that middle class people who will vote for Romney because they're voting AGAINST Obama will pay dearly for their bigotry during the next four years.
