To The Daily: The Oct. 23 editorial "Political Bluster is Risky" was a warm-up for the forthcoming editorial endorsing President Barack Obama for a second term.
It chastised Mitt Romney for labeling Russia as a geopolitical foe. That is a country which insisted that we not put defensive missiles in Poland, to which Obama agreed without getting anything in return. Obama told Medvedev, Russia's president, to wait until after the election, when he could work better with Russia.
The editorial predicts that Romney would start a trade war with China and a real war with Iran and Syria. In the third debate, Romney pointed out that China does not want a trade war with us because it would impact them more than us. Romney also pointed out that he does not favor a war with Syria, and instead advocates arms assistance to the rebels. With Iran, he pointed out that we are very late with our sanctions, and he stressed that he would back Israel to assure that Iran would not develop a nuclear capability. Obama, on the other hand, recently refused to meet with Netanyahu so that he could continue campaigning.
Obama recently put politics ahead of truth by labeling the Benghazi attack as a reaction to an anti-Muslim movie when it was known within 24 hours of the attack that it was planned by terrorists. Two weeks later, Obama addressed the United Nations, professing that the attack was a crowd reaction. Mychal Massie, a columnist from Los Angeles, wrote, "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader …."
Write on, Decatur Daily. Smoke your pot and read the Communist Manifesto. You've published your editorial backing Obama for a second term.
