Newspaper Apologizes for 2008 Obama Endorsement

On Friday, it was reported that the Billings Gazette retracted their original support for President Obama:

The Gazette said it missed George W. Bush and the “good ol’ days when we were at least winning battles in Iraq.”

It recapped several mistakes Obama has made during his presidency:

  • Obama has also failed on energy policy by not approving the Keystone XL pipeline, which could be helpful to the economy.
  • He has failed in Iraq; the country is now on the brink of civil war.
  • The Gazette wrote that the Bowe Bergdahl exchange made the Obama administration seem incompetent.
  • The VA system has been mismanaged by the Obama administration, leading to veterans dying before they could receive medical care.
  • Obama has also broken his promise to become the “most transparent administration in history.” The Gazette said the president’s administration is so opaque that is has earned a reputation worse than that of Richard Nixon.
