Tide turning: New York Observer endorsed Obama in 2008; Now endorses Romney


Wow. Another sign of a Romney surge? In answer to the question, in 2008 The New York Observer endorsed Barack Obama.

Can’t say I was expecting this.. observer.com/2012/10/romney…

NY Observer, which endorsed Obama in 2008, endorses… Romney in 2012 observer.com/2012/10/romney… via @freddoso

Some can’t even really believe it; this was not expected.

wait, I’m now getting word that that “NY Observer” website is actually a fansite hosted by Jake Gyllenhaal (just kidding, looks legit)

— KingPimpPaulRyan (@AceofSpadesHQ) October 17, 2012

Heh. Legit, it is! And meaningful, as the paper does not have a conservative bent.

Aren’t they center-left? RT @ag_conservative: Wow. RT @freddoso: NY Observer endorses Romney?!!! bit.ly/R8PSQs

@aceofspadeshq Richard Brookhiser wrote for them as their token conservative for years. He implies that they are pretty liberal.

@aceofspadeshq NYO pretty left from what I’ve seen. Were very muchsympathetic to OWS

The endorsement is a devastating critique of Obama’s presidency.

More from The New York Observer:

Class warfare might be a successful strategy for cobbling together 270 electoral votes. But it’s not the way to unite a divided nation.
The president comes to town on a Monday, takes our money, shakes our hands and tells us how much he values the CEOs and innovators of New York. And then on Tuesday, he turns around and refers to business leaders as fat cat bankers whose success was created by the sweat of others. That’s not a friend. That’s not a leader. That’s a politician.

Mitt Romney stands out because—unlike so many candidates in the past—he understands how to build businesses, create efficiencies, make tough deals and carefully consider divergent viewpoints. America needs a strong leader, a practical leader. Mr. Romney knows full well that it would be a tragic mistake to simply assume that the United States will continue to be the world’s economic powerhouse simply because that’s what we’ve been for decades. America earned its global prominence because of the nation’s culture of work and individual freedom. That’s why immigrants came here and continue to come here—not because they seek a handout, but because they want a chance to work and to create and to innovate. In today’s competitive economy, the country needs competitors, not class-war crybabies.

Boom! Seriously, read the whole thing. Liberals are frantically trying to spin it away as meaningless. And, of course, are trying to vilify the paper.

when did the NY Observer become so right-wing that they would endorse Romney?

Oh, it means nothing. Because, Trump or something. But, wait, what’s this?

as @freddoso points out, a schumer/hillary donor MT @jbarro: The NY Observer, Trump’s son-in-law’s paper, endorses Mitt Romney this morning.
