The Des Moines Register Endorses Romney

Moe Lane says he totally didn’t see this coming, but when I saw ^ that ^ extremely telling front page picture  in the Des Moines Register,  earlier this week, this girl saw the writing on the wall – The Register endorsement: Mitt Romney offers a fresh economic vision:

American voters are deeply divided about this race. The Register’s editorial board, as it should, had a vigorous debate over this endorsement. Our discussion repeatedly circled back to the nation’s single most important challenge: pulling the economy out of the doldrums, getting more Americans back in the workforce in meaningful jobs with promising futures, and getting the federal government on a track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner that the country demands.

Which candidate could forge the compromises in Congress to achieve these goals? When the question is framed in those terms, Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate.

The former governor and business executive has a strong record of achievement in both the private and the public sectors. He was an accomplished governor in a liberal state. He founded and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. He successfully managed the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Romney has made rebuilding the economy his No. 1 campaign priority — and rightly so.

Keep reading.

Romney is the first Republican they’ve endorsed since Nixon in 1972!

You know what they say – when you lose the Des Moines Register….

MRCTV: Where Do Obama Supporters Get Their ‘Unbiased’ News?:

MRCTV’s Dan Joseph visited a “packed” Obama rally at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. to try to get an answer to one of life’s most elusive questions: Where do liberals get their news?

The answers may or may not shock you.

Color me “not shocked.”

Via NW Daily Marker: New Two-Minute Unedited Video Shows Big-Dollar Democratic Donor J.Z. Knight Making More Slurs Against Catholics and Mexicans:

“Mexicans are not worthy of conscious thought,” says Washington state-based ‘spirit’ leader

In a story that is still unfolding, State Democrats in Washington continue to resist calls to return more than $66,000 in donations received from Yelm-based “mystic” J.Z. Knight after videos of tirades peppered with hate speech directed at Catholics, Jews and gays became public earlier this week.

[NW Daily Marker‘s two prior articles documenting $66,300 in donations to State Democrats and $60,800 to the Democratic National Committee and Pres. Barack Obama’s re-election campaign can be read here and here.]

Uh…..extreme language warning:

Via MRCTV: Benghazi: The Biden and Obama cock-ups:

The father of one of the Navy SEALs who was killed in the Libya consulate attack has criticised the White House reaction to his son’s death – especially a bizarre and obscene comment Joe Biden made to him.

BizzyBlog: Establishment Press Won’t Cue Up Biden’s Outrageous Comment to Slain Benghazi Hero’s Father:

If this claim were refutable, I believe the Vice President’s office would have attempted to do so by now, and it hasn’t. The “loud and boisterous” element just cited sort of closes off that avenue.

Later in the Blaze report just linked, Woods described his encounter with President Obama at the same ceremony:

“When he finally came over to where we were, I could tell that he was rather conflicted, a person who was not at peace with himself,” Woods said. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder.”

“I could tell that he was not sorry,” he added. “He had no remorse.”

Beck said he wanted to give the president “the benefit of the doubt,” and asked Woods how he could be sure that Obama wasn’t just uncomfortable or nervous during their conversation. Woods said it was Obama’s “demeanor.”

Completing the trifecta of administration awkwardness and obfuscation, Woods claims that Hillary Clinton told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”

Google News searches on “Charles Woods” (in quotes) and “Biden cue” (not in quotes) returned only two results from U.S. establishment press outlets, a blog post at US News and an outstanding column at the Orange Country Register by the incomparable Mark Steyn. The UK Daily Mail is on the story. Separate searches on “Charles Woods” at the Associated Press and the News York Times (not in quotes and in quotes, respectively) are similarly barren.

The video — produced by the founders of the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners, which came up with the famous tagline “Got milk?” and boasts clients like Cheetos, Netflix, the National Basketball Association and Nintendo — asks viewers, “What Would The Children Of The Future Say If We Let Them Down This November?”
