It’s Now Time To Decide

If you had already made up your mind going into Monday night’s presidential debate, nothing said probably changed your mind. But for those who were undecided, there certainly was some food for thought.

But what was lacking on the part of the president was a vision for the future and credibility based on the past. The current commander in chief repeatedly accused Romney of reaching back into history for failed policies of the past both home and abroad. The president summoned images of President Herbert Hoover and others which history has deemed failures. In doing so, Obama tried to gloss over his own history of failed promises — on unemployment, on balancing the budget, cutting the deficit and — as we believe — earning the respect of our overseas allies.

Admittedly, Obama’s failures center mostly around domestic policy — Romney’s strength. But as Romney pointed out Monday night, in order to be strong and respected on the international stage, the United States must be strong economically.

As readers know, there is no doubt on the part of the editorial board here at Foster’s Daily Democrat new leadership is needed from the White House. We believe all three debates — but especially the first — support that notion. We believe that, on balance, the debates have shown Mitt Romney to be the more capable and with a vision for the future — a vision President Obama has failed to offer.

On Nov. 6, we urge voters to give Mitt Romney a chance to offer the nation real hope and change.

Romney’s The One

Four years ago the voters put their faith in a man who offered vague promises of hope and change at a time when any change looked like a good idea and hope was in short supply.

What this nation got in Barack Obama was a president who used an economic crisis to further his redistributionist agenda — and, not surprisingly, failed miserably at restoring American prosperity. Oh, he brought change all right — to a government-knows-best philosophy that has given us four years of high unemployment, higher gas prices, a $16 trillion deficit, and a job-killing regulatory environment.
..
Enough! This isn’t the kind of change anyone can believe in.

The other simple fact is that in Mitt Romney voters have not merely a safe and steady alternative but a proven leader and an extraordinarily skilled expert in the art of the economic turnaround.

He did that all over again for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

What Romney knows at the core of his being is that sometimes government must step aside and sometimes it must lead.

Last night the nation saw a man who in the area of foreign policy is prepared to lead, who knows that for the United States to remain safe it must reclaim its place on the world stage.

During the last four years the world has become a more dangerous place. We can’t afford four more years of a leadership vacuum.

Not when in Mitt Romney voters have the choice of a strong, smart hand on the helm, a decent, caring man, who lives his faith, who loves his country and would serve it well. For all of those reasons, the Boston Herald is pleased to endorse Mitt Romney for president.

NH Newspaper Foster’s FOR Romney: “We Want a President With Core Values”


Foster’s, a New Hampshire newspaper that takes a conservative editorial line, has awarded Mitt Romney with the GOP presidential nominee blue ribbon.

The Editorial Board at Foster’s, comprised of Patrice Foster, president and publisher, Cathy (Foster) Hayward, director, Geo J. Foster Co., Inc., Wayne Chick, general manager, Rodney G. Doherty, executive editor and Paul (Buzz) Dietterle, editor of the editorial page, were unanimous in their support for Romney.

A few highlights from Mitt Romney: Best suited to be the GOP’s standard-bearer
Editorial
December 4, 2011

★ While making our endorsement in the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary, Foster’s Sunday Citizen is not going to spend endless words addressing much of the myth and mythology which has been used to attack Mitt Romney, who we believe should be the Republican nominee for president of the United States.

★ Today, more than ever, the United States needs a president willing to listen to the electorate, a president willing to adapt to today’s demands for governance, not remain married to methods because they are from a simpler time. By the same token, Foster’s wants a president who has core values.

★ There is his time at Bain Capital where he learned the whys and wherefores of the business world and the keys to job creation. It was a place that formed much of Romney’s philosophical roots that should help grow the country’s economy should he be elected.

★ Then there was his time as Massachusetts governor. Some voters of a more conservative bent may hold that against him. We don’t. To the contrary, his ability to win office and improve the business climate in the Bay State is seen as herculean in an otherwise one-party Democratic oligarchy.

★ And lest we be remiss in crediting Romney’s accomplishments that make him better suited than others to be the GOP nominee, there is his turnaround of the Salt Lake City Olympic Games in 2002. Voters must not forget that Romney did, indeed, make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

Beyond all this, Foster’s is endorsing Mitt Romney because he offers a certain moral fortitude we admire. His faith in family, God and country is strong and well rooted. This, combined with a wealth of experience in private enterprise, his time as governor and countless hours listening to voters’ concerns, make Romney the most well-rounded and well-qualified to represent the GOP in next November’s presidential election.
