The editorial board at Pueblo Chieftain, a print and online news source for the southern portion of swing-state Colorado, today endorsed Mitt Romney.
We didn’t endorse Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy four years ago, but after he was elected we congratulated him on his victory and expressed our desire that his presidency would be successful.
But soon after his inauguration, it became clear that his talk of “post-partisanship” and governmental transparency was just that: talk.
There has to be a better way, and Mitt Romney is pointing to that way. He has outlined a pro-growth package of initiatives that can get this country humming again.
Here, in a nutshell, are the five basic elements of that package:
Cut the federal deficit by reducing federal spending below 20 percent of GDP. “You’re not going to get entrepreneurs to go out and start an enterprise . . . unless they realize we’re not headed to Greece.”
Champion small business by cutting taxes and regulations, and by overturning ObamaCare. “We need small business to grow. . . . Small businesses have been crushed these past four years.”
Then there are the looming crises of Medicare and Social Security. Even Vice President Biden admitted Thursday night they can be sustainable only into the foreseeable future.
Gov. Romney, along with vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, has charted a course to protect current and soon-to-be retirees with full benefits, while restructuring how those two programs can be financed without breaking the budget.
In short, seniors or soon-to-be seniors can rest assured a President Romney won’t pull the rug out from beneath them.
And that’s why we urge our fellow Americans to elect Mitt Romney the 45th president of the United States of America.
We will never forget these four men who sacrificed everything for America.
A MUST SEE VIDEO…
I think every American should see this video. Please listen carefully to what Ambassador Bolton says here.
President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are doing everything within their sphere of authority and power to obfuscate and bury the facts surrounding the assassinations of four great Americans on September 11th in Libya. Their motives are quite simple. Their number one objective in the next three weeks is to stall the release of facts until after the election. Pure and simple. I honestly believe they couldn’t care less what the families of these courageous men feel or think. It is completely political to them.
Please watch this short video clip up to minute 4:45. I think this video clip contains more truth in one place than we saw over weeks of hearings during the Watergate cover-up and subsequent investigations. As Americans, we simply cannot allow this travesty of truth to occur on our watch. I cannot tell you how incensed I feel about these duplicitous individuals who only care about their political futures! Here are some of the highlights from the video:
1:20 Bolton: “Ambassadors are the personal representatives of the President of the United States! They cover all our agencies overseas and they are all presidential appointees.”
2:44 Bolton: “Hillary Clinton’s own department was in real time communication with the consulate and knew what was going on at the consulate.” (She feigns ignorance!)
4:20 Bolton: “This was a high threat mission that…Even the Red Cross had withdrawn due to the threat level…” Hillary Clinton certainly should have known what was going on at this mission well ahead of September 11th.
PLEASE watch this video and tell your friends. I strongly believe every American should see this and know how our leaders cannot be trusted any longer as they all scramble to cover-up simple truths and facts:
Here is what we know about the Libyan consulate assassinations on September 11th:
Messrs. Obama and Biden will never take responsibility for any failure of theirs. By default, they blame the Dept. of State and the U.S. intelligence community for security failures at the consulate. It fits their four-year pattern of deflection at every turn.
Five days after the attack, Ambassador Rice was adamant that the attack started as a protest to a YouTube movie trailer created last summer.
No intelligence expert was ever aware of a spontaneous protest, at the consulate, based on a video.
Ambassador Stevens and other U.S. security personnel in Libya, numerous times had requested of the Dept. of State heightened security at the consulate prior to September 11th and were denied every time.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton states categorically that she had never been aware of any requests for additional security at the consulate and she blames the U.S. intelligence community.
Nobody wants to allow Ambassador Rice to disclose who told her to publicly report that the attacks started as a simple protest to a movie trailer.
COVER UP: One or more of the following entities is directly involved outright in this cover-up: 1) The White House, 2) The Dept. of State, and/or 3) the intelligence community (I seriously doubt the intelligence community is part of this cover-up and I think they will soon leak information to the press that will directly implicate 1 and 2 by way of retribution).
I honestly believe that what we are witnessing at the highest levels of the United States government is a cover-up far more serious than that of President Nixon’s Watergate and I strongly believe the facts, as they become widely known in America, will end Hillary Clinton’s chances to ever become POTUS in the future.
The men and women involved in this cover-up will do whatever they can to stall and hinder the congressional investigation until after the election.
Nobody was killed in the Watergate break-in.

During last night’s VP debate, Joe Biden told us, “I always say what I mean.”
He always says what he means.
Remember that, America.
Okay! Take a look at the top 10 worst lies V.P. Joe tried to foist on Americans during the debate in Danville; clickhere.
Joe is on record saying plenty of memorable things; here are a few:
Aug 14, 2012 – Vice President Joe Biden tells a Virginia crowd, Romney’s plan would “put y’all back in chains.”
Aug 1, 2011 – As a follow up to Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle suggesting that dealing with Tea Party and fiscal conservatives was like negotiating with terrorists, Biden reportedly piled on by saying, “They have acted like terrorists.”
July 5, 2009 – In an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Biden conceded that the White House team “misread how bad the economy was.” His confession came as unemployment hit 9.5 percent, despite the administration’s insistence that it would hold to 8 percent with the stimulus plan.

July 16, 2009 – Biden gave a blunt summation of the administration’s approach to stimulus spending: “People, when I say that, look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?” he said at a stop in Virginia. “The answer is yes.”
July 16, 2009 – An open microphone caught Biden saying, “This is a big f—ing deal” to President Obama during a nationally televised Washington signing ceremony for the president’s health care law.
June 26, 2010 – Biden called the manager of a custard shop outside of Milwaukee a “smartass” after the man asked him to lower taxes. Biden made the comment after the Kopp’s Frozen Custard shop manager told him that his dessert would be on the house if he lowered taxes. “Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time?” Biden said a few minutes later.
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.” –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn’t president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008 (source)
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…. I’m not joking.” –Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006 (video)
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” –Joe Biden, referring to Barack Obama at the beginning of the 2008 Democratic primary campaign, Jan. 31, 2007 (source)

With his derisive laughter, zombie eye-rolling, feigned incredulity, exaggerated theatrical gestures, continual interruptions, and over-all condescension, Vice Presidential smirk monkey Joe Biden negated any gains he hoped to make at last night’s V.P. debate. Biden’s performance sealed the deal for him… as the simpleton from Scranton and America’s permanent political huckster. Debate moderator, ABC’s Martha Raddatz, failed to control all-show Joe and left many yearning for Jim Lehrer.
Although GOP Vice Presidential candidate 42-year-old Rep Paul Ryan is 27 years younger than 69-year-old Biden, he was resolute, reassuring, and ready to take on the smart-aleck. Ryan was clearly the adult seated at the debate desk in Danville.
Polls from CNBC and CNN revealed Ryan won.
Here’s just a sampling of Twitterverse take-aways (comments from FOX News contributors at end of article):
[POLL RESULTS] Who do you think won the VP Debate? Paul Ryan: 56%, Joe Biden: 36%, Neither: 8%. #CNBC2012
Topic: Foreign and domestic policy Date and Time: Thursday, October 11, 9:00-10:30 PM EST Location: Centre College in Danville, Kentucky Elevation: 1022 ft. Moderator:Martha Raddatz ABC News’ Chief Foreign Correspondent
The debate will cover both foreign and domestic topics and be divided into nine time segments of approximately 10 minutes each. The moderator will ask an opening question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a discussion of the question.
On the eve of the first Presidential debate, Veep Joe dramatically, fiercely, earnestly spewed a truth out of his lying lips:
This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest… How they can justify — how they can justify — raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years… How in Lord’s name… — Vice President Joe Biden, spreading the conservative message at a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina, Oct 2, 2012.
Contrary to all the lies shooting out of the Obama/Biden calumny camp, Governor Romney will NOT raise taxes on the middle class. He and Paul Ryan are CHAMPIONING the middle class AND the poor; they will kick-start Obama’s cardiac-arrest economy and create upward mobility for all.
Under Obama/Biden, 23 million fellow citizens DO NOT HAVE JOBS, one in six Americans now find themselves in POVERTY, food stamp and disability enrollments have exploded, and average Americans have lost income to the tune of $4,000. Many lucky enough to have a job are often overworked for less pay and are afraid a pink slip is just around the corner. Under spend-‘n-go Barack and Joe, gasoline and food prices have flown out the roof!
America’s individual tax code applies relatively high marginal tax rates on a narrow tax base. Those high rates discourage work and entrepreneurship, as well as savings and investment. With 54 percent of private sector workers employed outside of corporations, individual rates also define the incentives for job-creating businesses. Lower marginal tax rates secure for all Americans the economic gains from tax reform.
Make permanent, across-the-board 20 percent cut in marginal rates
Maintain current tax rates on interest, dividends, and capital gains
Eliminate taxes for taxpayers with AGI below $200,000 on interest, dividends, and capital gains
Eliminate the Death Tax
Repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)
Without going into specifics right now because they’re outlined on his website and because The Gov will speak more on his plan at tonight’s debate in Denver, Romney will also CLOSE TAX LOOPHOLES for the wealthy.
