President Racks Up MAJOR Endorsement Coups

SAID NEW YORK CITY's MAYOR, Mike Bloomberg endorsing President Obama:
“The devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York City and much of the Northeast — in lost lives, lost homes and lost business — brought the stakes of next Tuesday’s presidential election into sharp relief. 

“[W]e can't do it alone. We need leadership from the White House — and over the past four years, President Barack Obama has taken major steps to reduce our carbon consumption, including setting higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. His administration also has adopted tighter controls on mercury emissions, which will help to close the dirtiest coal power plants (an effort I have supported through my philanthropy), which are estimated to kill 13,000 Americans a year.”
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! One of the world's leading financial (and very conservative) publications, The Economist, has also endorsed President Obama, with a few choice words for Mitt Romney, you know, the lying chameleon who says Obama doesn't  “understand” the economy:
“Under President Romney, new conservative Supreme Court justices would try to overturn Roe v Wade, returning abortion policy to the states. The rights of immigrants (who have hardly had a good deal under Mr Obama) and gays (who have) would also come under threat. This newspaper yearns for the more tolerant conservatism of Ronald Reagan, where “small government” meant keeping the state out of people’s bedrooms as well as out of their businesses. Mr Romney shows no sign of wanting to revive it.

Many of The Economist’s readers, especially those who run businesses in America, may well conclude that nothing could be worse than another four years of Mr Obama. We beg to differ. For all his businesslike intentions, Mr Romney has an economic plan that works only if you don’t believe most of what he says. That is not a convincing pitch for a chief executive.”
Well, the Romney camp has their own pair of high-profile endorsements: Lindsey Lohan and Meatloaf. As the saying goes, cream rises to the top. Don't be stupid, Romney “swing” voters. Vote Obama, 'kay. Trust me, it'll be good for your health, your pocketbook, and your 401k/stock options.
