Their last endorsement was businessman Mitt Romney. For this election, the Texans at the Chronicle have evolved enough to endorse the only qualified nominee for President of the United States. They give excellent reasons that don’t just include the obvious, that Drumpf is an attention deficient, racist, treasonous, megalomaniacal threat to his own country and should not be anywhere near the White House. If you need reasons to vote for Hillary and block the Orange CHEAT-O and his friends bag of mixed nuts, read this article and think long and hard about your actions, or lack thereof…
Houston Chronicle endorses Clinton
By Nikita Vladimirov, July 29, 2016, The Hill
The Houston Chronicle, one of the largest newspapers in Texas, is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president and calling Donald Trump a “danger to the Republic.”
“Any one of Trump’s less-than-sterling qualities – his erratic temperament, his dodgy business practices, his racism, his Putin-like strongman inclinations and faux-populist demagoguery, his contempt for the rule of law, his ignorance – is enough to be disqualifying,” said the editorial board on Friday.
“His convention-speech comment, ‘I alone can fix it,’ should make every American shudder. He is, we believe, a danger to the Republic.”
The Chronicle praised Clinton as superior in experience and on a range of issues, including healthcare, immigration, energy and foreign affairs.
“On the issues, there’s no comparison in terms of thoughtfulness, thoroughness and practicality,” said the board, adding that Clinton will fight for social and economic reforms that will reduce poverty and help women.
The newspaper also lauded her calls for a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, support for clean energy, commitment to NATO allies and temperament as some of her core strengths.
“We could go on with issues, including her plans for sensible gun safety and for combating terrorism – her policy positions are laid out in detail on her campaign web site – but issues in this election are almost secondary to questions of character and trustworthiness.
The board also highlighted Clinton’s history-making bid.
“America’s first female president would be in the Oval Office more than a century and a half after a determined group of women launched the women’s suffrage movement, almost a century after women in this country won the right to vote. It’s a milestone, to be sure. Few could have imagined it would be so consequential,” they concluded.
In 2012, Houston Chronicle endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
