The Chicago Tribune slammed its hometown hero in a Monday editorial: “The American public is having a credibility-shattering debate about the president: Did he not bother to learn the details of the law before he told us we could keep our doctors and our insurance, or did he know the truth and flat-out lie?” Perhaps a better question: Why did this same Chicago Tribune editorial board endorse this accused liar or dilettante – twice? Now, the paper proclaims “It was a mistake to attempt such a massive government intrusion on a marketplace and a mistake to do so without anything close to a public consensus.” So why in 2012 did they write this? Bolstered by his steadiness in office, cognizant of the vast unfinished business before him, we endorse the re-election of Barack Obama.
