Our view: Erie Times-News endorses Obama, Casey, Maher

Nov 4, 2012 Full story: Erie Times News 18

When the Erie Times-News Editorial Board made our decisions on endorsements for Tuesday's general election, we did so with these criteria: Which candidate will best serve the Erie region and how likely is the candidate to work in a bipartisan fashion? Our task was challenging because of the high caliber of candidates, a pleasant and welcome ... (more)

Our choices are:

-President: Barack Obama, based on his demonstrated leadership on domestic and foreign issues,
.
.

his commitment to the middle class
.
.

and his advocacy on women's issues, such as equal pay for equal work.

//////////

This is what you talk about when your candidate doesn't have any policy proposals that address voters' concerns.

“Well, hon, Obama is really not so black...I mean his Mother was white so, I think it is safe to vote for him.

He’s articulate, bright and clean and light skinned.

After all, anyone's better than a rich Mormon at this point...”

Welfare At All-Time High Under Øbama

A record 5.4 million workers have applied for federal disability checks since President Obama took office, according to a news report that cites recent government figures.

This is straining already-stretched government finances while posing a long-term economic threat by creating an ever-growing pool of permanently dependent working-age Americans, the report says.

Since the recession supposedly ended in mid 2009, the number of people who have applied for disability benefits is double the job growth figure, according the report which includes an informative chart.

In just the first four months of this year, 539,000 joined the disability rolls and more than 725,000 applied for the federal benefit.

That means nearly 11 million people are on disability, according to the Social Security Administration.

//////////

President Obama took office in the first quarter of 2009, when median household income was $54,797.63. As of the last quarter of 2011, median household income was $52,377.21.

This was the interval Mr. Zandi suggested using to check Mr. Romney’s statement, and it shows an income drop of $2,420.42. That’s not $3,000, of course, but it’s still pretty bad.

One could also reasonably argue that it might be more appropriate to use the quarter before Mr. Obama took office as the baseline, rather than the quarter in which he was sworn in. In the fourth quarter of 2008, median household income was about $55,380.17.

Starting from that quarter gives us a decline of $3,002.96, almost exactly the number Mr. Romney cited.

I just finished cancelling my Times-News subscription.

I will not continue to support the Times-News editorial staff's lifestyle of being stupid.

They can't figure out why circulation continues to drop.

This may be a clue.

The Erie Slime News has been a Obama Cheerleader since Day 1.....They have covered his rear all thru the Obama Presidency, those who comprise the Ahem!...ESN editorial Staff are all from liberal to socialist in political orientation. I certainly would never have expected they would do the right thing, be loyal to America, be honest & endorse anyone who did not support the Democratic Liberal Socialist Agenda.
The Erie Slime News is nothing but a rag of a bird cage liner lacking in originality with truth being a casualty in anything they publish when it comes to promoting the Democratic Liberal Socialist Agenda message.
All across America traditional news sources such as Newspapers are dying a slow death due to blatant Socialist support. The American newspaper along with most once major News organizations are fast being replaced by the internet by people with an ability to think or reason who believe in truth & believe in what this country was founded on.
Obama is a hard leftwing Socialist who owes everything he believes & promotes to his Marxist professors & admired a Soviet style government as once led by Joseph Stalin....."His words , not mine".
Overlooking all the failures of the Obama Presidency , the laughing stock the foreign policy of America has became& omitting any consideration for Socialist Background or Marxist influence .....The Erie Slime News endorses him! Expected yes, but still very sad that the ESN has fallen so far from a position of once championing American Excellence to bow in adoration to a left wing Traitor like Obama.
As for me ....I am voting for an America which still holds true the ideals this country was founded on & a candidate who will give true allegiance to those ideals....."Mitt Romney", I urge everyone who believes in America to do the same.

The ETN is one of the biggest cheerleaders for anything that will keep Erie from being successful and this is just another example. Only a moron editor and his staff would endorse a candidate who has failed to do the job. If they hired a new president of their company and he failed to perform they would replace him in an instant. But then again they are also pro union as long as they can outsource any union jobs at their company.

The Weekly Standard:

“On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more,” said Biden.

“My heart breaks, come on man.

You know the phrase they always use?

Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars.

Guess what?

Yes we do in one regard.

We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy.
.
.

That’s not a tax raise, that’s called fairness where I come from.”

.
.
.

Ever wonder why there is no job recovery?

With these kind of nut-job comments coming from an Administration that could win another term, no one is going to hire of any substantial amount.

In 2008, these people said voting for McCain would get us the dumbest vice president in our history. Well, I voted for McCain, and damned if they weren't right, we DID get the dumbest vice president in the history of the country. And, it was the last thing they were ever right about!

Crank, that 100% FACT! Sarah Palin has more Legislative exp. Than McCain, Biden and Obama combined. So she was a little straight forward, it scared them she could talk to the people seeming as one of them.

Voters....ask yourself why Romney has the worst polling numbers in the state he governed....remember Mass voted him in as a Republican and now there a Republican senator (not for long)....Massachusetts is willing to vote GOP (eg:Scott Brown)but hates Romney. He is universally thought the worst governor ever....in a booming economy job growth went from 37th to 47th under Romney...wake up, Romney is bad for American and the people of Massachusetts are telling the truth.

You already posted the same thing Barry. If you don't have an argument stay out of the adult conversation. The fact that you are still on the radio is another example of Erie not being able compete with the best.
