The Des Moines Register has NOT endorsed a Republican for president since 1972. This time it picked Romney for president for two very good reasons.

They did NOT ever endose Reagan either time, they went with first Carter and later for Mondale.

Like it or not but this is a very big deal in Iowa, that paper carries big clout and can easy pull the state.

WOW! No way I expected this. Obama has to see the writing on the wall.

The 4 major papers in Iowa all endorsed Romney. I'll be surprised if Obama wins Iowa this time around. If signs in yards is any indication, it's about 3 to 1 Romney compared to 4 years ago when Obama was in all over the place.

Of all their endorsements they had a record of 14 to 9 where 14 of those they endorsed LOST.

Doesn't look like a good record IMO. Their picks haven't bode well in the past Republican OR Democrat.


Go back and look up the STATE and then post the record on which one won the STATE.

I posted in the original post that they had a lot of clot in their STATE.

Nobody said they were guessing who will win but who they endose, something you will never understand.

You are TRYING to say they are doing it NATIONALY and trying to pick the winner. Something they have never done nore has any newspaper done when it ENDOSES someone. If they want to post a article that picks the winner then they will write an article on that but you will never understand the difference.

Iowa was a toss up state now they will go to Romnay.

They're not predicting a win by endorsing Romney. They're saying VOTE FOR ROMNEY. Big difference.

So they've only backed one (R) in the last 40 years and he won.

Typical of liberals, traditionally back (D) and then call them a "Loser" because of their record of being on the wrong side of history when they break rank and go against you.

You can spin anything anyway you want, I choose to spin it as:

So they've only backed one (R) in the last 40 years and he won.

That in my spinnerometer = 100% Success rate at picking Republican presidential winners.

It's in picking the winning democrats that they need a little work. \:D

Hey,TD... the thread isn't about the Register's record on predicting elections. Des Moines isn't Vegas. It's about the fact that one more (of many this election cycle) liberal leftist rag is endorsing someone other than the Kenyan.

Try to keep up here.

Add in the Orlando Sentinel.... so liberal Castro used to make underwear out of the sunday issue.

Oh and the Tennessean...

Wonder why all the liberal rags are jumping ship?

Could it be that the businesses who buy advertising are hurting due to the horrible policy of government and the papers are suffering?

Could it be that circulation is WAY down due to customers rejecting the liberal drivel printed ?
