LA Times Endorses Obama: ‘The nation has been well served by President Obama’s steady leadership’

Steady leadership? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha  ha ha ha ha  ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Geez, these folks are hilarious.

The nation has been well served by President Obama’s steady leadership. He deserves a second term.

His record is by no means perfect. His expansive use of executive power is troubling, as is his continuation of some of the indefensible national security policies of the George W. Bush administration. This page has faulted him for not pushing harder for a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws. Obama swept into office as a transformative figure, but the expectations built up by the long campaign thudded back to earth amid an unexpectedly steep recession and hyperbolic opposition from the right. That the GOP has sought to block his agenda wherever possible is undeniable, but truly great leaders find ways to bring opposing factions together when the times demand it; Obama has not yet been able to do so.

Sounds like a legacy of failure to me.

    Geepers. It’s kinda odd that they failed to mention that the Dem led Senate flushed two of his budgets down the toilet. You’d think that that might be a factor in determing how effective a leader is. If your head wasn’t in the up and locked position that is.

    I strongly suspect we’ll abruptly stop seeing and hearing the bolded word from the MFM once Zero loses.

    The LAT can no longer even give away the print edition to Southern Californians. And no wonder, given this kind of editorial judgment.
