Asheville Citizen-Times Endorses Obama

“Allow Obama to build on progress”:

With Obama, we know what we are getting. He has consistently embraced the concept of community. Obama believes we are not just a bunch of individuals but a nation, and that we must work together to address the challenges we face.

There has been so much ugly campaigning this year that the voter’s first chore is to separate fact from fiction. Obama is not a socialist — those who make this claim know nothing about either Obama or socialism — and Romney is not a hard-hearted corporate pirate who would shred the social safety net.
