Editorial Endorsement for the Re-election of President Barack Obama:
La Prensa concurs with The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s endorsement to re-elect President Barack Obama “on the basis of sound leadership” and The Blade’s endorsement to re-elect President Barack Obama on the basis that Obama “has provided pragmatic, steady, centrist leadership that has served the nation well.”
Almost 4 years ago, President Obama inherited a horrendous amount of baggage from the Republican administration of George W. Bush—economic woes that rivaled the Great Depression. Utilizing sound judgment, with little or no help from Republicans, he was able to stabilize and then turn around the economy and for that reason alone he deserves to be re-elected for another four years. President Obama is also a strong supporter of Latino Civil Rights, as exemplified by his recent Executive Order of June 15, 2012, allowing the implementation of many of the aspects of the DREAM Act. Republican candidate Mitt Romney has stated for the record that he would veto the DREAM Act if passed by both branches of Congress.
La Prensa urges its readers to vote for Barack Obama for President on or before November 6, 2012.
