Mitt Romney Scores First Non-Endorsement Of The Season

Mitt Romney scores the first major non-endorsement of the political season from a newspaper. The Concord Monitor printed an editorial Sunday called, ‘Romney should not be the next president’. In the article they say Romney is packaged perfect to be our next president, “who sure looks like the next president and most surely must be stopped.” The article attacks Romney for changing his mind to fit his current needs. “When New Hampshire partisans are asked to defend the state’s first-in-the-nation primary, we talk about our ability to see the candidates up close, ask tough questions and see through the baloney. If a candidate is a phony, we assure ourselves and the rest of the world, we’ll know it,” according to the article. “Mitt Romney is such a candidate. New Hampshire Republicans and independents must vote no.” Romney’s campaign has responded by calling the Concord Monitor a liberal paper. “The Monitor’s editorial board is regarded as a liberal one on many issues, so it is not surprising that they would criticize Gov. Romney for his conservative views and platform,” according to a Romney spokesperson. “Governor Romney has taken firm positions that are at odds with the board’s support for drivers licenses for illegal immigrants, their position against school choice and their advocacy for taking ‘Under God’ out of the Pledge of Allegiance. The governor happens to disagree with the editorial board on all those issues.”
