Newspaper took responsible position
I have been a frequent critic of the Daily Herald, but I must compliment the paper on its courageous decision to endorse Mitt Romney for president this election after endorsing Barack Obama for the last election.
As someone that has been involved in hiring hundreds of people over the years, I could never understand how someone could "hire" (elect) a politician based on "hope," as the Daily Herald recommended voters do in the last election versus making a choice based on hard data and a verified track record of performance, as business professionals must do to succeed.
Obama's poor performance is not a surprise to me and it is consistent with his past poor and/or extreme track record (or lack of one). The Daily Herald showed courage and leadership for many Americans by acknowledging that President Obama did not deliver on his promises, was a disappointment and counterproductive to our nation's needs, and should not be re-elected.
That takes courage, especially when so many of its peers in the media are clearly "in the tank" for Obama.
The Daily Herald sets a good example for many Americans that made the mistake of voting for Obama based on "hope." This is a new election, Obama did not deliver, and it is fair and appropriate to not elect him this time based on his poor performance.
The Daily Herald took the responsible stand of speaking for the good of its audience, not to "double down" on its previous recommendation or to be part of the liberally biased "lame stream" media. Kudos!
