Union Leader rejects Romneyism

ALEXANDER BURNS | 11/27/11 12:38 PM EST Updated: 11/27/11 2:22 PM EST

By endorsing Newt Gingrich for president, the New Hampshire Union Leader opted to reject local front-runner Mitt Romney in favor of the latest — and maybe last — anti-Romney conservative.

Just as striking is how firmly the paper rejected Romney’s framing of the Republican primary and the 2012 general election.


In his front-page editorial Sunday, publisher Joe McQuaid did not mention the words “jobs,” “economy,” “employment” or “growth” — the core vocabulary of Romney’s campaign. Instead, he focused on the more subjective qualities of leadership and character, explaining that the Union Leader wanted a candidate with “courage and conviction” who is “independent-minded [and] grounded in their core beliefs.”


Drew Cline, the Union Leader’s editorial page editor, expanded on that point in a CNN appearance, dismissing Romney as a “play-it-safe” candidate” more suited for the presidency in the “late 19th century.” What the country needs now, Cline said, is a “candidate [who] is bold in his leadership — [who] has a vision for where he wants to take us as a country and knows how to get there.”

Romney has sought the GOP nomination with the basic assumption that both Republican primary voters and the country in general will end up rallying behind the candidate who is most credible on the issue of job creation. If Romney is right, Newt Gingrich should not be a particularly frightening opponent: Gingrich can’t match Romney for private-sector experience, and he has only an attenuated claim to creating jobs as speaker of the House. When it comes to jobs and the economy, Rick Perry, Jon Huntsman and maybe even Herman Cain all have a better and more straightforward story to tell than Gingrich.

But that’s not the rubric the Union Leader used for its endorsement. To the extent that the paper is in touch with the spirit of the GOP primary electorate, its focus on abstract personal qualities over tangible economic accomplishments could be a worrisome sign for Romney.

In fairness to Romney, it remains to be seen just how in touch with GOP primary voters the Union Leader is. The paper has only endorsed two candidates — Ronald Reagan and John McCain — who went on to win the Republican presidential nomination. Skeptics of the value of the Gingrich endorsement have already pointed out that the Union Leader also endorsed Pete DuPont in 1988 and Steve Forbes in 2000, a jab Cline pushed back on via Twitter.

What’s more, much as Gingrich doesn’t have much of a jobs record to run on, he’s also an imperfect messenger when it comes to character. Republican primary voters may see him differently as a potential president the more they hear about his personal life and his web of Washington business interests. But for now, as long as Gingrich can set up the primary race as a choice of strength versus weakness, boldness versus timidity, confrontation versus compromise, that will play to his advantage far more than Romney’s.

I guess this editor fellow hasn't heard of all Newts philandering, nasty divorces, being the only House Majority Leader ever convicted on Ethics charges (which included lying to Congress), or of all his shady big money in his own pockets wheeling/dealing with industry/Wall street since... :???:

Or could it be this is the new Republican standard of "character" and "core beliefs" ?

As if "Newt" had the market cornered on philandering.......... :lol: :lol:

Maybe Barney Frank started a new concept of Democrats by taking philandering in the rear? :roll:

Come back with an actual position you can argue. :lol:

You've brought this up at least a dozen times........Seems you are obsessed with Newt.........................

Oldtimer we get it, :roll: you are looking for anything you can to save your incompetent nitwit hero's job. But I doubt you are going to find a GOP candidate with as many deep dark secrets as your hero has/had.

Bomb planting friend
A felon land developing neighbor
a American hating racist pastor
A mysteriously dead gay lover
I'm guessing more than one Drug dealer
the Corrupt Chicago Campaign machine
ACORN
SEIU Thugs
Black Panthers
Any and all personal records from Birth to Political life are all sealed.

Do we really need to go digging any farther into the past of the guy you voted for. :roll: Face it Oldtimer ANYTHING WILL BE AN IMPROVEMENT OVER WHAT YOU VOTED FOR IN THE LAST ELECTION AND DEFEND TO THIS DAY. :x Your guy is a twit and you are idiot to still defend his incompetence.

how about lying oldtimer? does that stain your character and reputation?
is telling the truth a moral or ethical quality? You have honesty listed- is telling half truths to smear someone/thing an example of honesty in your opinion? If you find someone who tells half truths and lies what should you do about it?

Oldtimer could be a pretty decent guy, but his main failure is that he will never admit he was ever wrong about anything. And he darn sure will never apologize.
He must truly "love" all of us, because he sure took the line from the movie LOVE STORY to heart......"Love means never having to say you're sorry."

"Love means never having to say you're sorry" is a line from the novel and 1970 film Love Story starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal. The quotation appears
twice in the film: once around the middle when MacGraw's character Jennifer Cavilleri says it, and again as the last line in the film, repeated by O'Neal's character
Oliver Barrett IV as a tribute to Jennifer. The line was actually misspoken from the script, which read "Love means not ever having to say you're sorry."

The quotation was voted #13 in the American Film Institute's list AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes.[1][2]
