Never saw this coming, but the left-leaning South Florida Sun-Sentinel has endorsed Mitt Romney for President.
“Four years into Barack Obama’s presidency, economic growth is sputtering. Family incomes are down. Poverty is up. Business owners are reluctant to assume risk in the face of unending uncertainty. Many are holding on by their fingernails, desperate for signs of an economic recovery that will help them provide for themselves, their employees, their customers and their communities.”
“Behind those numbers are the faces of your neighbors, your family members, perhaps even yourself. Good people who want to work, but who cannot find jobs because job creators have lost faith in the nation’s economic direction.
A leader’s job is to create an environment where people can do their best work — in this case, a marketplace where good jobs can grow. Obama deserves credit for supporting the American auto industry during a time of enormous peril. And the federal stimulus — which was backed by both parties, and largely distributed by Florida’s Republican-led legislature — helped build roads, dredge shipping channels and keep teachers employed, among other things.”
“We believe Romney’s past performance is a predictor of his future behavior. He’s proven himself to be a successful businessman. He rescued the 2002 Winter Olympics from scandal and mismanagement. He worked with a Democrat-dominated legislature as governor of Massachusetts to close a $3 billion budget deficit — without borrowing and raising taxes.”
“We believe the best chance to get America back working again is to elect Mitt Romney. That’s why we endorse him for president.”
