In these uncertain times, we need a leader who will chart a clear course, sweat the details and get the job done right.This follows the Orlando Sentinel's endorsement of Romney last week.
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.
President Obama is a decent man who took office with the nation facing an economic precipice. But even he predicted he would be a one-term president if he failed to turn things around.
We believe the best chance to get America back working again is to elect Mitt Romney. That’s why we endorse him for president.
It's not surprising that the Tribune Company's Sam Zell decided to go this route in an important swing state like Florida. Him and Romney are cut from the same swath of cloth when it comes to taking over and destroying companies for their own personal profit. Just look at what he's done to the Tribune Company. And they have the same disdain for the poor in this country.
Here's Zell in a recent TV appearance...
As you might imagine, comments are piling up quickly at the Sun-Sentinel but this one summarized things pretty well.
The parent company of the Sun-Sentinel is Tribune Company, which recently emerged from bankruptcy with its debt controlled by one large bank and two hedge funds. Romney also managed a hedge fund. Birds of a feather flock together. As a vulture capitalist Romney is no different than the raiders who drove Tribune Company into a ditch. Perhaps the SS is looking for a tax break. This endorsement has nothing to do with what's good for the country and everything to do with corporate greed. Shame on Sun-Sentinel and their sister company Orlando Sentinel who also endorsed Romney.
