A sign of the apocalypse: The Daily News and Newsday endorse Romney

The Daily News:
Our choice for America’s future: The Daily News endorses Mitt Romney for president
Four years after endorsing Obama, News finds the hopes of those days went unfulfilled

First hitting Obama on unemployment and the economy, they go on,

First came emergency economic stimulus. Because Obama gave free rein to House and Senate Democrats in deciding how to spend $800 billion, the legislation was heavily designed to satisfy the party’s constituencies and hunger for social programs, and inadequately weighted toward job-multiplier projects like building and repairing bridges and railroads — including subways.
After originally projecting that the program would produce 4 million more jobs than the country now has, along with a 5% jobless rate, Obama pleads that he saved Americans from more dire straits.
Next came Obamacare. While the country bled jobs, the President battled to establish universal health insurance — without first restraining soaring medical bills. Then he pushed one of the largest social programs in U.S. history through a Democratic-controlled Congress without a single Republican vote.
R.I.P. and never to be resurrected — Obama’s promised bipartisanship.
While the legislation has yet to take full effect, the typical family’s health insurance premium has risen and many businesses will experience a hike of $70 per week per employee, further restraining wages or producing part-time jobs that lack coverage.
Next came trillion-dollar deficits. Deep in the hole thanks to former President George W. Bush, Obama helped run up a $5 trillion increase in the national debt.

Newsday:
Editorial: Elect Mitt Romney president of the United States

Had Barack Obama done the job of president with the same passion and vision he displayed in seeking it, he would likely deserve another term. He did not.

Go read both in full.

    Any vote for Romney is a wasted vote, this lying bigot, has destroyed everything he has touched, thankfully I’m a resident and I can go home , because under these foolish republicans Americans will soon be jumping the Canadian and Mexican border after the suffering comming ahead, this is what they want another bush , you stupid “American” fools.

    Promises, promises.

    I’m surprised you’re surprised. Neither Newsday nor the Daily News have even been particularly noted for having a “liberal” editorial slant.

    I’m glad to see the endorsements from middle-of-the-road publications.

    I’m laughing at the hubris of the second comment. Go home, then, and take your ball and bat with you. BTW I’m on the Canadian/American border. I’d need stronger legs to jump it: It’s a river, and then it widens to lakes on either end. I myself prefer using a puente o the ferry.

    As for suffering coming: well, if Romney as president makes it possible for us to have just one job as work picks up, then good! It’s less suffering than three jobs, especially when the weather is cold and it’s hard to sleep in the car between shifts. If my brother doesn’t have to rent his basement to make mortgage payment, good! It’s less suffering to have just his family at the table and not other people who have no place else to go. I don’t blame rich people for being rich. I want my sobrinos to have the same opportunity.
