THE FINAL HOPEY-CHANGEY IRONY...:
Wisconsin State Journal flips for Romney (Rachel Weiner, November 4, 2012, Washington Post)
The Wisconsin State Journal, the state's second largest paper with a Sunday circulation of 118,000, has gone from endorsing Barack Obama in 2008 to supporting his opponent in 2012."This is not an easy endorsement to make," the paper's editorial board wrote. "We endorsed Obama for change last time around. Now we're endorsing change again: Mitt Romney."The paper faults Romney for his views on social issues and "unrealistic" promises, but praises his "reasonableness and smarts." Obama gets credit for Iraq, Osama bin Laden and school reform but the paper faults him for failing to pass a budget, tackle the debt or work with Republicans in Congress.
...is that the Obama presidency will be remembered as successful to precisely the extent it built on W's policies.Posted by Orrin Judd at November 4, 2012 10:31 AM
