Another "home" state rejects Romney

This strikes me as a pretty BFD. Salt Lake City Tribute issues stinging condemnation of Romney and endorses Obama:
Sadly, it is not the only Romney, as his campaign for the White House has made abundantly clear, first in his servile courtship of the tea party in order to win the nomination, and now as the party’s shape-shifting nominee. From his embrace of the party’s radical right wing, to subsequent portrayals of himself as a moderate champion of the middle class, Romney has raised the most frequently asked question of the campaign: "Who is this guy, really, and what in the world does he truly believe?"

The evidence suggests no clear answer, or at least one that would survive Romney’s next speech or sound bite. Politicians routinely tailor their words to suit an audience. Romney, though, is shameless, lavishing vastly diverse audiences with words, any words, they would trade their votes to hear. [...]

...Through a pair of presidential debates, Romney’s domestic agenda remains bereft of detail and worthy of mistrust.

Therefore, our endorsement must go to the incumbent, a competent leader who, against tough odds, has guided the country through catastrophe and set a course that, while rocky, is pointing toward a brighter day. The president has earned a second term. Romney, in whatever guise, does not deserve a first.
Mind boggling that he's come as far as he has. That the soul sucking ninnyhammer Romney is even in contention at this point speaks volumes about the decline of America.

Meanwhile the influential Orlando Sentinel has gone for Romney and it's boosted his numbers. Just disgusting -- this level of ignorance. The blind leading the blind is one thing, but the liars, cheats and crooks leading the ignorant and stupid is another.

I'm not putting much stock in poll numbers these days. Nate Silver and Intrade still have Obama at 60+ chance of winning. A lot can happen in a couple of weeks.
