Utah's newspapers Endorses Obama

One of Utah's largest newspapers, located in the heart of Mormon country, has endorsed President Obama over Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

The Salt Lake Tribune endorsed Mr. Obama on Friday in an editorial that praised the president for engineering passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to stimulate the economy and accused Mr. Romney of flip-flopping and being "willing to say anything to get elected."

The paper acknowledged that their choice may be surprising to some, considering Mr. Romney's Mormon faith and his leadership and financial turnaround of the 2002 Winter Olympics held in Salt Lake City.

The Tribune also endorsed Mr. Obama in 2008 and endorsed George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004.

The article made brief mention of Mr. Obama's handling of the economy — arguing that it minimized long-term damage from the 2008 financial meltdown — but most of its words were spent accusing Mr. Romney of betraying his record as a bipartisan governor and successful businessman in an effort to cater to right-wing Republicans and wealthy donors.

While Utah is a majority-Republican state, its capital city of Salt Lake is considered largely left-leaning.

Mr. Romney is expected to win the state by a wide margin this year, and no Democrat has carried Utah since then-President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.

Having a paper or prominent person that supported you four years ago continue to support you is not a slap in the face.. What is news worthy is having a prominent paper/person that supported the other side four years ago switch. Did they support the republican candidate four years ago and now endorse Obama? That is a slap in the face.. Did they endorse Obama fours years ago and now endorse Romney? That is a slap in the face.

I can think of two that I read about last week..

The Orlando Sentinel, Florida's largest paper, endorsed Obama in 2008 and has decided to endorse Romney for 2012. Orlando Endorsement

Lee Iaccoca who backed Obama in 2008 has endorsed Romney in 2012. Lee Iaccoca endorsement

Also..

I would appreciate you changing the headline of possible.. The Salt Lake Tribune is not a "Mormon News Paper" .. It's main rival in Salt Lake "The Desert News" can accurately be described as a Mormon newspaper. The Tribune is owned by NewsMedia Corp which owns papers such as "San Jose Mercury News", "Daily Democrat", and "The Denver Post". I expect the spin, but at least lets take out the direct lies.

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

I have not really payed much attention to names of people here but I did after the whole voting machine "Democracy is under attack" post a couple of days back. After the Sentinel switched and then Iaccoca endorsed at the same time I was curious what was going to be thrown out to stop the momentum for this cycle.. Pretty weak stuff.

Do you have any proof this is a Mormon owned newspaper? The headline of the article you linked is not the title you gave this topic, the headline says UTAH newspaper, not MORMON....

He has a life devoted to lobbing softballs on VJ.

I was in bed naked with Alla until noon. We were awake doing things that are illegal in Alabama until 5am.

I had a choice. :P
