We Recommend Mitt Romney For President
Over the next four years, Washington must foster a more competitive economy and balance federal budgets. Florida voters rate jobs and business growth as their No. 1 concern by far.
For those reasons, we endorse former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for president.
Romney has a clearer vision for a modern economy. He has a better understanding than President Barack Obama of what could help manufacturers and service companies grow and hire. And he has executive experience and a record of problem solving that Obama did not have before taking office.
We think Romney would be more effective at setting priorities, pushing business-friendly initiatives through his Cabinet and negotiating solutions across party lines.
In a line that bodes well for the Space Coast, he writes: “Government is generally not the source of new ideas, although innovations from NASA and the military have provided frequent exceptions.”
We endorsed Obama in 2008, but not because he seemed likely to transform the economy. We recommended Obama because he promised to end the war in Iraq, continue NASA’s moon-exploration program and reform health care costs that had outstripped growth in household income for more than a decade.
We also believed Obama would reach out and build new coalitions in Washington to resolve issues mired in partisanship.
Four years later, Obama has failed to satisfy three out of four of those expectations.
Combine those positions with Romney’s business expertise, and that’s the candidate we support.
