The Seattle Times Gives The Least Enthusiastic Endorsement Ever To Mitt Romney

The members of The Seattle Times’ editorial board think Mitt Romney is the best guy for the GOP presidential nomination. But they don’t really like him very much. With a yawn and a cynical nod, the editorial board came as close to not endorsing Romney as possible while still saying that he has the best shot at the nomination: 

Hmmm. Ah, Mitt Romney. The former Massachusetts governor has the most potential in a thin field to represent his party in head-to-head competition with Democratic President Barack Obama.

The board called Romney the “practical choice” who “does not excite voters and is a suspect choice, except for all the others.” The editorial called attention to his awkwardness, his shaky narrative about his business career, and his untested foreign policy ideas. It even said that they would have to think about whether to support Romney over Obama in the general election. 

Basically, the board would have preferred anyone else, if there were any good guys left. But alas. 

Go team Romney!
