Newspaper Apologizes for Endorsing Obama: ‘Far Worse Than Nixon'

Billings Gazette: "Sometimes, you have to admit you're wrong. And, we were wrong.

Billings Gazette: "Sometimes, you have to admit you're wrong. And, we were wrong."


"Sometimes, you have to admit you're wrong," The Billings Gazette  said about its 2008 endorsement of Barack Obama. "And, we were wrong. We said that things couldn't get much worse after the sub par presidency of George W. Bush," the paper wrote in an apologetic editorial on Friday.  


The Montana and Wyoming newspaper says that after endorsing the Democrat president in 2008, it now "has us yearning for the good ol' days when we were at least winning battles in Iraq." 

The paper begins by stating that Obama has earned "every bit" of his "abysmal" approval ratings, referring to the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal polls that "show that Americans are giving Obama lower marks than in 2006 when Iraq was going poorly for Bush and a tepid response to Hurricane Katrina sunk Bush's ratings." 

"Obama's hope and change have left liberals and conservatives alike hoping for real change, not just more lofty rhetoric." 

The lengthy op-ed goes on to provide a detailed laundry list of Obama regime failures that have led to its change of heart, including its NSA spying, its attacks against American energy, the "civil war" in Iraq, the Bergdahl exchange that released five top terrorists, and the VA scandal. Mysteriously, the piece fails to mention the IRS scandal, in which Americans were targeted for their political beliefs, and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, in which four Americans were left to die while the Obama and Clinton machines lied repeatedly about what caused the attacks. 

Contrary to its promise to be the most transparent administration in history, the paper claims that the opposite has turned out to be true, stating the regime "has actually cracked down on journalists, spied on citizens and retaliated against those who leak information to the press." The Obama administration has earned a reputation must worse than the "disgraced" president, Richard Nixon, who resigned rather than face likely impeachment. 

"In fact, the Obama administration has become so opaque and difficult that it has earned the reputation of being far worse than Nixon, the disgraced president whose terrible clampdown of information led to federal law being changed for more transparency."

After blasting Obamacare as being synonymous with the word "boondoggle," The Gazette says that when combined with the multiple other massive self-imposed problems, its "a disturbing trend of incompetence and failure."

AMEN!!!

(This is funny, I have a brother who has lived in Billings for many years. He would find this funny.)

Also, there are a lot more people than that who are apologizing, scratching their heads, trying to wake up from the nightmare, banging their heads against walls, etc., etc., etc.

It is never to late to say I'm sorry but this still doesn't fix the mess he has made. The newspaper should be commended for their concern, but it would have been nice if it had came before the second term anyway.

I honestly didn't think I would ever see a Newspaper publish an apology. I am shocked by this.    I hope spurs a rash of apologies across the U.S.  We need a ground swell of people to stand against this administration.

I'm thankful the newspaper offered a public apology. Hopefully others will follow. I still say they should have known better. The evidence was clearly available revealing who Barack Obama really is. He didn't fool me nor many Americans. Half the country did not vote for Obama. I hope he leaves the WH in shame.....

1/2 the voters were cast against him.

1/2 the country didn't vote.

He has become a dictator based on 1/4 of the countries approval.

Let's not forget the corrupt IRS targeting Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations for intimidation purposes during the time of elections.
