Wow. Another sign of a Romney surge? In answer to the question, in 2008 The New York Observer endorsed Barack Obama.

Some can’t even really believe it; this was not expected.

Heh. Legit, it is! And meaningful, as the paper does not have a conservative bent.

The endorsement is a devastating critique of Obama’s presidency.

More from The New York Observer:

Class warfare might be a successful strategy for cobbling together 270 electoral votes. But it’s not the way to unite a divided nation.
The president comes to town on a Monday, takes our money, shakes our hands and tells us how much he values the CEOs and innovators of New York. And then on Tuesday, he turns around and refers to business leaders as fat cat bankers whose success was created by the sweat of others. That’s not a friend. That’s not a leader. That’s a politician.

Mitt Romney stands out because—unlike so many candidates in the past—he understands how to build businesses, create efficiencies, make tough deals and carefully consider divergent viewpoints. America needs a strong leader, a practical leader. Mr. Romney knows full well that it would be a tragic mistake to simply assume that the United States will continue to be the world’s economic powerhouse simply because that’s what we’ve been for decades. America earned its global prominence because of the nation’s culture of work and individual freedom. That’s why immigrants came here and continue to come here—not because they seek a handout, but because they want a chance to work and to create and to innovate. In today’s competitive economy, the country needs competitors, not class-war crybabies.

Boom! Seriously, read the whole thing. Liberals are frantically trying to spin it away as meaningless. And, of course, are trying to vilify the paper.

Oh, it means nothing. Because, Trump or something. But, wait, what’s this?

Another sign of a shift?

Heh. November is looking better and better.

    Outstanding …… can you say momentum?

    I do think the tide is turning. I live on the outer fringe of the northern Virginia area, and I’ve seen only a handful of Obama/Biden yard signs or bumper sticks. My husband and my best friend work in the heavily democratic northern Virginia area, and they both report many more GOP signs and stickers are visible. Committed dems are going to vote for Obama of course, but I think the enthusiasm is way down which will affect democratic turnout negatively.

    The NYO nailed it. All it takes is for someone to assess the past 4 years and project that for another 4 years to see that we can’t afford to re-elect Barack Obama. Mr. President, (as TV’s Martin would say), “Get ta steppin!”

    From above…”The president comes to town on a Monday, takes our money, shakes our hands and tells us how much he values the CEOs and innovators of New York. And then on Tuesday, he turns around and refers to business leaders as fat cat bankers whose success was created by the sweat of others. That’s not a friend. That’s not a leader. That’s a politician.”

    Sounds like O p’d someone off royally. Not surprising.

      i think business men/women are getting the picture – Mr. Obama is not their friend. He wants to take from them to “spread it around”.

    I’d like to see the 4 questions answered that the president side stepped last night.

    “Slowly I turn…
    Inch by inch… Step by step. To
    Niagara Falls!”

    The more Obama debates. The more deeply he cuts his own throat!
    It’s a wonderful thing to behold.

      why is there so much hate in your heart?

      • Jack Deth

        Because Obama is a bought and paid for, Chicago political machine wannabe. Who should never have been placed in a position of power. Yet was, through the embarrassingly silly, cultist beliefs of people like you and countless others.

        Oh, and save the Race Card for later. Though I believe it may have been obliquely applied in your bleeding heart retort. It really doesn’t work much here.
