Okay, I just about did.
But any newspaper in Chicago endorsing Romney at least makes me a little giddy. Can't help it.
That's understandable; I felt that way when a Utah Newspaper endorsed The President.

The right-leaning paper admitted that Mitt Romney's policies should have made him a more obvious choice for their endorsement, but they described the GOP nominee as "astonishingly willing to bend his views to the politics of the moment: on abortion, on immigration, on gun laws and, most famously, on health care.".

Favorite quote of the day.

BENGHAZI-GATE: COVERUP FOR CIA GUN-RUNNING IN SYRIA?: As more and more leaks develop about Benghazi, an intriguing theory is emerging: That Ambassador Stevens was involved in recruiting Al Qaeda jihadists–and providing them weaponry–to fight Assad’s regime in Syria. If true, this could provide some context for an Obama Administration motive to cover up and deny military aid to Stevens and his colleagues at the consulate compound.
You know how to make Chicken Benghazi?

CHICAGO -- For only the second time in its 165-year history, the Chicago Tribune has endorsed a Democratic candidate for president.
Once again, President Barack Obama will enjoy his hometown Tribune's seal of approval, the newspaper announced Friday. The paper lauded the president for his careful projection of military power abroad and pragmatism as the country's economic "dominoes toppled." The Tribune editorial reads:
Four years ago, when we endorsed Obama’s run for the White House, we said he would act with decisiveness and intellectual rigor. Ironically he has shown those attributes most where Americans might have expected them least.

Mitt will abolish drones and never kill anyone!

He'll just sink the ships!

11 feet of water pouring down the stairways into the tubes? I doubt there is enough pumps to stop that. Not to mention all the basements.

Definitely. Wonder if Jamie Dimon and the rest of the wall street guys have a helicopter pads on their roofs?

Hurricanes are terrifying, I've seen quite a few here. The only saving grace is that you know they are coming for the most part and can prepare, unlike Tornadoes.

Bah, Obama is killing terrorists with those drones, you didn't really believe Saddam when he claimed Bush blew up that milk factory. Why do you succumb to Fox news and terrorist propaganda? Bush's failed policies drove people into poverty, Obama's policies have been trying to get them out of it. And please as a Republican do not claim to give a sh!t about the poor now.

Last night, one reporter said NYC was a like a ghost town.

Pretty eerie.

Right now it's being reported the water levels are already up to where Irene was and the storm is still hours away.

Maybe not the end of the world but pretty freakin' unusual.

Top 6 Lies Romney Has Told Women in an Election Season Full of Whoppers

Mitt has assembled a binder full of bs on issues that matter to more than half the population.
October 24, 2012 |

Women -- along with a handful of undecided voters -- are pretty much going to decide this thing come November 6. The gender gap is at historic highs, and if solely women were voting, there’s no question as to who would be occupying the White House for the next four years
