Herald got it right with Romney

text size: AAA

The Daily Herald, USA Today and the Chicago Tribune are at our Palatine doorstep before 6 a.m. This morning, Oct. 28, the Herald got their presidential endorsement right -- for Mitt Romney. The Tribune took nearly a full page to dither back and forth, even proclaiming that our country's biggest problems are the debt and the deficits -- and then they went with a candidate who, over the past four years or more, has given not even good lip service about addressing or reducing either. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Soon, perhaps, USA Today will chime in with their thinking. But, who cares? Because our own, local, excellent newspaper, The Daily Herald, got it right.


Truly, I hope all your subscribers and readers follow your thinking. My wife and I have, already voting early for Romney and Paul Ryan, two people who will reverse our beloved country's rush down a financial and cultural hole that our kids and grandkids don't deserve. Vote Romney/Ryan, and cheer for America. And if those other two guys win? Pray for the America that we knew, loved, fought for, and people died for, that it may someday return. Unlikely.

The Herald got it right, for Mitt Romney. Bravo!

Mike Smith
