    Utah’s Largest Paper Endorses Obama, Blasts ‘Too Many Mitts’ :eusa_clap:

    The title of the Editorial says it all for me: "Too Many Mitts"

    Salt Lake Tribune

    .

    The Tribune endorsed Obama in 2008 and George W. Bush in 2004.

    Obama warns of "Romnesia" symptoms - CBS News Video


    Obama warns of "Romnesia" symptoms

    Campaigning in Fairfax, Va., on Friday, President Obama warned of the symptoms of "Romnesia," poking fun at Mitt Romney's shifting positions over the years. The good news, the president said to raucous cheers, is "Obamacare covers preexisting conditions!"

    Utah's biggest newspaper just endorsed...Barack Obama for President. WOW. This might be devastating for Mitt Romney.

    Nowhere has Mitt Romney’s pursuit of the presidency been more warmly welcomed or closely followed than here in Utah. After all, Romney managed to save the state from ignominy, turning the extravaganza into a showcase for the matchless landscapes, volunteerism and efficiency that told the world what is best and most beautiful about Utah and its people.

    In short, this is the Mitt Romney we knew, or thought we knew, as one of us.

    Politicians routinely tailor their words to suit an audience. Romney, though, is shameless, lavishing vastly diverse audiences with words, any words, they would trade their votes to hear.

    This is THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, in the nation's reddest state! And it is positively excoriating Romney for abandoning his principles in order to court and assuage various groups of people at various times. This is brutal and speaks to why Obama detests this man on a visceral and political level: Mitt Romney is a man without conviction; without a steady moral compass. That is a dangerous man to have as the nation's President.

    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. 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.

    BOOM. That's it. Romney is finished. Shredded. Eviscerated by his own hometown. Unbelievable. Unbelievable.

    Daily Kos: WOW. Guess Who Just Endorsed Obama? THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE: "Obama has earned another term" UPDx3

    No shock...The Trib is as far left a bundle of bird cage liner as you'll find anywhere.

    No, I don't. But I can understand why you'd say that...you don't recognize reality.

    Can you explain what affect you think the Trib is going to have on the absolute trouncing Obama's going to get in Utah? Do you really think Obama's going to win the state?

    The Trib is such a POS that hardly anyone in SLC who isn't a coupon clipper reads it anymore.

    Their now dead message board (Trib Talk) banned anyone and everyone that wasn't a blood-shooting-out-the-eyes lolberal, to the point that they had tumbleweeds blowing through the forums and couldn't justify the waste of bandwidth....True story. :thup:
