Swing-state papers flip to Romney ahead of Election Day
Published November 05, 2012
The race for the White House is airtight hours before Election Day. But in the battle of swing-state newspaper endorsements, Mitt Romney appears to be winning -- aided in large part by papers that switched from backing Obama in 2008 to supporting the 2012 Republican nominee.
According to an analysis by Poynter, Romney has bagged a total of 24 swing-state newspaper endorsements, to Obama's 15. Across the country, at least 30 newspapers also flipped from backing Obama in 2008 to backing Romney this year.
They include some major swing-state papers, including the Wisconsin State Journal. In its editorial Sunday, the newspaper called Obama the "more likable and inspiring speaker." However, the editorial said, "this election is about jobs ... This is now Obama's economy, even though the GOP shares in the blame for partisan games."
The State Journal joined the Des Moines Register, Naples Daily News, Reno Gazette-Journal and the Orlando Sentinel, among others, in flipping to back Romney.
The New York Daily News also made waves this weekend by endorsing Romney, after having backed Obama in 2008.
"Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world's toughest job," the endorsement in part states. "We valued Obama's pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship. The hopes of those days went unfulfilled."
According to Poynter, at least three papers flipped from Sen. John McCain in 2008 to Obama this year. They were the San Antonio Express-News, The San Francisco Examiner and the Winston-Salem Journal.
Several other newspapers abstained from endorsing anybody this year after backing Obama four years ago -- including the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Palm Beach Post and the Dayton Daily News.

Now that's really stupid.

We have the highest murder rate in the free world.

More Americans commit suicide with guns than anywhere else.

We get involved in wars more frequently than any nation on earth.

When'a the last time China invaded a soverign country, nitwit??

Our love of guns is what keeps us in the dark ages. The civilized world laughs at America and it's gun culture.

<quoted text>Put down the bong Carol__60 years in Christ's day was two lifetimes and then there were, at least, three distinctly different languages involved in the earliest translations of the old testament. Your beloved "true word of God" KJV didn't come along for another century and a half and the ,cough, scholars are still trying to figure out what the scribes were smoking.
Thought you would find this both interesting and enlightening:

Translations such as the King James Version (translated by Englan's King James) are derived from existing copies of ancient manuscripts such as the Hebrew Masoretic Text (Old Testament) and the Greek Textus Receptus (New Testament) and are not translations of texts translated from other interpretations. The primary differences between today's Bible translations are merely related to how translators interpret a word or sentence from the original language of the text source (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek).

There is widespread evidence from which today's Bibles are translated remarkably for absolute reliability. There are more than 14,000 existing Old Testament manuscripts and fragments copied throughout the Middle East, Mediterranean and European regions that agree dramatically with each other. In addition, these texts agree with the Septuagint version of the Old Testament which was translated from Hebrew to Greek some time during the 3rd century BC. The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in Israel in the 1940's and 50's, also provide phenomenal evidence for the reliability of the ancient transmission of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament) before the arrival of Jesus Christ. The Hebrew scribes who copied the Jewish Scriptures dedicated their lives to preserving the accuracy of the holy books. These scribes went to phenomenal lengths to insure manuscript reliability. They were highly trained and meticulously observed, counting every letter, word and paragraph against master scrolls. A single error would require the immediate destruction of the entire text.

The manuscript evidence for the New Testament is also dramatic with over 5,300 known copies and fragments in the original Greek, nearly 800 of which were copied before 1000 AD. Some manuscript texts date to the early second and third centuries, with the time between the original autographs and our earliest existing copies being a remarkably short 60 years. Interestingly, this manuscript evidence far surpasses the manuscript reliability of other ancient writings that we trust as authentic every day.

Homer's "Iliad", for example, the most renowned book of ancient Greece, has 643 copies of manuscript support. In those copies, there are 764 disputed lines of text as compared to 40 lines in all the New Testament manuscripts.

Just FYI. I learned something new by reading this too.

A vote for Romney is a vote for a bright future and capitalism.
Capitalism is what collapsed the American economy. First the capitalist CEOs sent all the factories to China. Then the capitalist bankers knowingly made bad loans. Then the capitalist Wall St. billionaires sold those bad loans to the world. We can't stand no more capitalism.

Obama now knows he cannot win on a legit vote, so he must employ a series of dirty tricks to make sure he retains his stranglehold on the Oval Office. His greatest defenders – the liberal news media – are now beginning to forecast myriad grave and perhaps fatal problems with this election.

Be prepared for anything tomorrow…

You're a real gunner, eh boy??
Anyone who agrees with Dweeb is obviously brain damaged.
You truly are an idiot.

I do not own A 1911 handgun.

I do own a Heckler and Koch .45 caliber handgun. Heckler and Koch is the very same company that manufactures the MP5 automatic weapon and many other famous and deadly firearms. My .45 caliber handgun has an anti recoil feature built into it so I may rapid fire it quite accurately. In my humble opinion my handgun outperforms any 1911 I have ever fired.

This election is all about communism versus America. Obama does not represent America if you haven't figured that out yet.

I am neither inbred nor ignorant.

I am not a real gunner. I am a gun owner. There is a subtle difference.

I am uncertain whoyou are referring to as a dweeb, but the shoe seems to fit you so you might as well wear it.

Tea Party Group Blocks Florida Voters, Stops Water Handouts at Polls
But it didn’t seem to stop the flow of voter traffic. Black voter turnout at predominantly black districts hovered around 45 percent, which Lewis said was “very good” compared to 2008. But it also means that there‘s roughly half of remaining black eligible voters who have one more day to vote, tomorrow, which means lines could be even longer.
The early voting number totals are impressive—166,937 in total throughout Hillsborough County, the anchor of the important Interstate 4 corridor that includes Tampa, Orlando and Daytona Beach. In 2008, the total early voting numbers in Hillsborough County totalled 146,563—and that was with four more days of early voting than this year.
Ah those damn republicans, staying up all night drinking, carjacking people for use in a late night drive- by.Heck I wouldn't doubt it for one second if they were planning a flash mob right now on all those nice Black Buisness owners.An those vile whore Republican women fornicating right after their 4th abortion.All they do is collect welfare all day not work and complain about the reparation that they deserve for handing over all their hard earned money to the Blackman..Praise the Lord for Pres Obama.
