Every New York City Newspaper but the Times Endorses Mitt Romney

Yes there was an apocalypse in the area last week, but it didn’t seem nearly that apocalyptic. A week ago I would have said that the probability of the Daily News and the even leftier Newsday endorsing Mitt Romney was up there with Jimmy Carter giving the nod to Mitt. But now the impossible has happened.

Every New York City newspaper, besides the New York Times, has endorsed Mitt Romney. That’s a clean sweep of the working class and suburban tabloids, the New York Post, the Daily News and Newsday, and the uptownier New York Observer.

The only city holdout is the stiff New York Times and I can’t imagine what Obama would have to do to lose its endorsement, except wear white after Labor Day.

To understand just how unlikely this is, the Newsday endorsement of Mitt Romney hits Obama for authorizing drone strikes, failing to enact amnesty for illegal aliens and failing to act on Cap and Trade. And then it endorsed Mitt Romney.

In both the Daily News and Newsday nominations, the economy played the leading role. Romney never said, “It’s the economy, stupid”, but the message has come across anyway. Team Big Bird flopped. Team Staples won.

Newsday’s killer line is its opening line. “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.”

Romney has managed to sell himself even to people who could never conceive of voting for a Republican under normal circumstances. The economic apocalypse is here and even the New York media is waking up to it.

    Winston Churchill bust unveiled in Jerusalem http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middlee

    While Jerusalem unveiled a bust of Winston Churchill, Obama returned the one in the White House to Britain. One of the reasons not to vote for Obama. But what is the main reason not to vote for Obama? His appeasement of Iran. For all other reasons become irrelevant if the Iranian mullahs get the bomb. Because they cannot be deterred and they WANT to start a global conflagration.

    Well of course the Times doesn't endorse Romney. It's the freaking New York Times. I can't even imagine what it would take for Obama to lose the Times' endorsement. Probably a lot.

      A drone attack on the building might sway them…/sarc off/

    Since all the news outlets are controlled by a few Republicans it makes perfect sense that he received them.. Vote him in, see how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.. The blindness of everyone baffles me.. He screams economy and everyone listens to him when they all know he's no better than Goerge Bush was.. God help us all if he's elected..

    • Mary Sue

      The news outlets are controlled by Republicans? Seriously? Really? Then why are all the news reports on the major networks all left wing?

      There is no such thing as "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer". If the rich get poorer, guess what. SO DO THE POOR. The economy is NOT a zero sum game.

      He's nothing like Bush. FYI -BO has keep many of Bush's policy's in place. Good thing BO didn't close Gitmo like he said he would, because one of the captives were forced to give the US the key information that allowed the US to get Osama BinLaden.

      Really? Then why is it that the main stream media have been kissing O's feet since he got into office? If your argument were true, you would hear a lot more of O's mistakes than about Romney being "the devil"… Therefore, your argument is invalid…

      You're voting for a guy that leaked INTEL to America's ENEMIES:

      If I get richer, it's because I work hard. And NO ONE deserves any of my hard work except me and mine! You are an idiot if you think Obama had any agenda except to destroy our courtry. That was the plan, he pitted us against each other in every possible way. He nearly ruined our country, our constitution, and has set us back years in racism. ANYONE is better than another 4 years of this boob!I happen to really like Mitt Romney and think his charactor speaks for it'self.

    REALLY ? So you're saying that during Obummer's administration the rich didn't get richer and the middle class got poorer by over 4000 per household, God help us if Obummer gets reelected.

    The New York Times has won 108 Pulitzer Prizes (more than any other news organization), it's website is the most popular American newspaper website, receiving more than 30 million unique visitors per month, and it's printed version remains the largest local metropolitan newspaper in the United States, and the 3rd largest overall.

    Their endorsement carries more clout than the other 4 papers combined.

    • Mary Sue

      That only means it is popular among its left-leaning peers. Who do you think gives out all those awards? Republicans? Hahahahahahaha no.

      The NY Times used to be respectable, but it's losing readership like there's no tomorrow. Only the koolaid drinkers still read it. The rest use it to line their birdcages.

      • CDarby

        I agree with Mary, and the same goes for Huffington Post.

    Obama is like a horse that couldn't win a race in four years. Do you really want him running for you for another four years?

    • Mary Sue

      More like a horse that broke its leg…
