Miami Herald Endorses President Obama

"OUR OPINION: Romney’s contradictory positions raise questions about his intentions"

Snip

"In the end, Mr. Obama’s policies across the board — the environment, social policy, taxes and immigration — offer a more generous vision for America. The issues he has fought for, coupled with the lingering doubts about Mr. Romney’s persona and his true intentions, make this a clear choice. In the race for president, The Miami Herald recommends BARACK OBAMA."

That makes 3 major newspapers in Florida so far I believe- Tampa Bay Times, Sun Sentinel and Miami Herald- were there any others?

1. Which way does the Miami Herald lean?

Do they have any political leanings?

3. Their reporters just went after the corrupt repuke Cuban American Rep. David Rivera

and now he has 11 counts against him. The right wingers blame the Herald.

They're not always bad at least.

5. Sort of left but not always.

They waver back and fourth at times so they can be unpredictable.

6. It Is A Florida Newspaper

Yes, south Florida is the most liberal part of the state but it's not L A, NY, or Boston.

4. Who has more endorsements?

I think someone posted here a list or link to a list of endorsements. I seem to remember President Obama having more Newspaper Endorsements than Romney. Am I remembering that correctly?

10. Happy for the endorsement, but...

Miami Herald is WRONG on the facts. The president DOES have a plan moving forward.

Any fool can go and take a look:

The plan is NOT "sketchy" on details!!
