Newsday Endorses Mitt Romney President of the United States

The Minority Report is a news and information website devoted to politics and culture in the United States. Since the prevailing wisdom seems to be that the United States Government should be involved in everything, everywhere, The Minority Report covers a wide range of topics from a conservative perspective. In short, The Minority Report is primarily for news and discussion about Politics, Congress, Conservatism and all other things we deem important. We also spend a lot of time on the impact that the statesmen stumbling about those illustrious chambers have on the rest of us.

One of the most liberal papers in Long Island New York, Newsday, which endorsed Obama in 2008 and Kerry in 2004, has flipped the script and endorsed Mitt Romney for president of the United States. Newsday has a circulation of 377,500 and is the 11th-highest ranked paper. It is the highest among suburban newspapers.

The paper says:

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.

-Snip-

Obama‘s failure to accelerate the improvement of the economy is the dominant reason Romney is the right choice, but it’s not the only one. There are also the broken promises. On the campaign trail in 2008, Obama promised to halve the annual budget deficit of the United States. Instead, the shortfall has remained over $1 trillion per year, and the national debt has increased about 45 percent.

Obama said he would pass comprehensive immigration reform, but he never made a significant attempt to address it.

He said future generations would look back on his election as the time we began to slow the rise of the oceans and hasten the healing of the planet, yet he never introduced meaningful legislation aimed at achieving those goals.

Obama promised a transparent administration but instead ran a secretive White House. And Obama promised a newfound respect for civil liberties, and yet, in an expansive reading of congressional authority to use military force, he has authorized the unilateral assassination of American citizens abroad.

Obama promised to drive the unemployment rate below 6 percent in four years. It sits at 7.9 percent, just above the level when he was inaugurated.

This is just the latest in a long line of traditionally liberal leaning papers to break from Obama and endorse Mitt Romney.

According to the University of California, Santa Barbara American Presidency Project study of the top 100 newspaper editorial endorsements, Mitt Romney has seen a vast wave of switches from 2008 Obama endorsers. Obama, meanwhile, has seen only one newspaper that endorsed John McCain come around to endorse him. At the same time, many newspapers have also switched from Obama to “no endorsement.”

Here are the stats. As of today, 11 newspapers that endorsed Obama in 2008 have now endorsed Mitt Romney:

  • The New York Daily News;
  • Long Island Newsday;
  • Houston Chronicle;
  • Fort Worth Star-Telegram;
  • Orlando Sentinel;
  • Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel;
  • Nashville Tennessean;
  • Des Moines Register;
  • Illinois Daily Herald;
  • Los Angeles Daily News;
  • Los Angeles Press-Telegram.
