Des Moines Register Endorses Mitt Romney for President

A funny thing happened on the way to Election Day 2012 - the Des Moines Register has endorsed Mitt Romney for President. Why is that a big deal, you might ask? It's a very big deal because that newspaper has not endorsed a Republican presidential candidate since Richard Nixon in 1972. Here are a couple of quotes that explain their logic:
The president’s best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short. Nothing indicates it would change with a second term in the White House.
Voters should give Mitt Romney a chance to correct the nation’s fiscal course and to implode the partisan gridlock that has shackled Washington and the rest of America — with the understanding that he would face the same assessment in four years if he does not succeed.
The Des Moines Register uses common sense logic on the two most important aspects of the Romney candidacy - his business experience, all successful, and his ability to work with Democrats as well as Republicans to make things happen.  Barack Obama has failed in both areas and there is absolutely no indication that he has any intention to do things differently in the next four years.
