As was expected, the Des Moines Register on Saturday endorsed Mitt Romney for Republican presidential nominee.
Read the endorsement here.

I guess it must matter to some...I have never given a BLEEP about newspaper endorsements.

This newspaper is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Obama Campaign. It's a joke that they are making an endorsement in the Republican Primary.

For you purists out there...pound sand. Romney has a terrifc track record on the economy and is an unquestionable background as a pro business capitalist. Far better than anyone else including Newt who has been a career politician and has never spent a day in the business world.

Feb. 3, 2008: Boston Globe reports: Costs for Romney's health care to double! Federal government may be called for bailout
Romney made a huge fortune in private equity. But (in at least one case) hundreds of workers lost jobs, and stockholders and creditors lost their money.
While Romney was governor, Massachusetts’ economic performance lagged near the bottom in the country.

I guess I'm failing to see the attraction to Romney besides his hair. He's a New England liberal with the same leanings as Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

We get big gubmint luvahs. Perry, eh, former democrat, and I say that as a Texan. Outside of those three, the 0 wins.
Better keep your eyes on the House and Senate. Gotta have conservatives there, because the WH will be occupied by a big gubmint a-hole.

Are you kidding me?? Who says so? Romney?? FOX?? The GOP is in the tank for Mittens, and he is NOT what is needed for our salvation at this time. Since Sarah Palin is not running, it's either Gov. Perry or Newt for me. As for beating Obama, my dog Sparky could do that. And Sparky has papers to prove he was born in the U.S., too.
Submitted by jawebster1 on Sun, 12/18/2011 - 4:48am.
my views are closer to Santorum and Bachmann, but I think Mitt Romney has the best chance by far, of any of our candidates, to beat Obama and beating Obama comes before anything else.
I think Romney will be an excellent president and he is going to pleasantly surprise many Conservatives out there by governing from the "right"!
I don't think he will make the mistakes George Bush did and what George Bush did right, he will also do right. (Cut taxes, select excellent Justices and keep America safe from further terrorist attacks.)
And like George Bush and unlike Barack Obama, he will be someone we can all look up to and respect as a very good man who loves his Country as founded by our forefathers and not as some socialist utopian nightmare.

While they say this about Romney: Mitt Romney is making his second bid for Iowans’ support after an unsuccessful run in 2008. We did not endorse him then, but this is a different field, and he has matured as a candidate.
But when speaking of Newt they have to reach way back in the past to come up with this slam: Newt Gingrich is an undisciplined partisan who would alienate, not unite, if he reverts to mean-spirited attacks on display as House speaker

So rather than a bulldog, we want to put forth, what...a pompadourian poodle?
The next President has to deal with liberal radicalism and its septic takeover of the United States of America.
Do we want a political light weight? A guy with nice hair and a tan but no substance? Or do we want a pit bull who will stand up in the face of the Pelosi/Reid/RINO machine?
I'm not suggesting that Gingrich is the best candidate. He simply isn't. But unfortunately, the true Conservatives are too low in the polls. As a bulldog who demands results, however, Newt is most indelibly qualified.
Romney would simply whimper, roll over and pee himself as the radicals in Washington scratch his underbelly and feed him kibble. Gingrich would seem more inclined to take a bite out of their lower extremities.
I'll take the Georgia bulldog over the New England pompadourian poodle any day.

No matter the outcome of the 2012 presidential election, the country will be more polarized than ever. Republican ideologues hate President Obama while Democrats have no capacity for trenchant leadership.

for over 200 hundred years while liberal radicalism has attempted to destroy it in less than 40.
Open-minded Radicalism is an abject failure no matter where it's tried. I'll stick to my close-minded Conservatism because it works.
The danger sometimes of opening the mind is that it runs the risk of becoming an open sewer.

A commie rag like the RedStar&Sickle endorsing a candidate in a Republican caucus makes about as much sense as PETA endorsing a steakhouse.

"Sobriety, wisdom and judgment.
Those are qualities Mitt Romney said he looks for in a leader. Those are qualities Romney himself has demonstrated in his career in business, public service and government. Those qualities help the former Massachusetts governor stand out as the most qualified Republican candidate competing in the Iowa caucuses."
So, Romney is the person he's been looking for? Where have I heard that before?

And so far, it seems to be succeeding. We shall see how Newt holds up under the onslaught.
Having said that, I am not and never have been a Mitt fan, although I DID vote for him in the primaries last time (although McCain was a foregone conclusion). And while I am not a fan of his debate performances so far (something just so faux and practiced)....I saw him on Greta a couple of nights ago, and I have to say I'm impressed with him in that (more relaxed) setting when he's not trying to be so "on".
I'm about 90% there that Mitt is going to be our nominee, although I am not going to make up my mind for whom to vote in the Florida primary. (It may be a "protest" vote again if the media is successful, alas).
I am sick and tired of Iowa & New Hampshire. Time to besiege the RNC and change this silliness.

I endorse Gingrich. And since newspapers don't vote, my endorsement carries more weight than that of the Des Moines Register.
