“This election is no contest”

dallas-morning-news-7The Dallas Morning News hadn’t endorsed a Democrat since FDR in 1940. They just did.

In the first of a pair of editorials yesterday, America’s 11th largest newspaper by circulation called Trump’s “open admiration” of Russia’s Putin “alarming,” complained he “is no Republican and certainly no conservative,” and said he “is not qualified to serve as president and does not deserve your vote.”

In its second editorial, the paper said, “Resume vs. resume, judgment vs. judgment, this election is no contest,” and recommended Hillary Clinton for president.

The editorially conservative paper takes issue with the Democratic Party’s “over reliance” on government regulation and said, “We’ve been critical of Clinton’s handling of certain issues,” but explains, “Clinton has experience in actual governance, a record of service and a willingness to delve into real policy.” And while she “has made mistakes and displayed bad judgment, … her errors are plainly in a different universe than her opponent’s.” Calling her “a known quantity,” the paper adds, “For all her warts, she is the candidate more likely to keep our nation safe, to protect American ideals and to work across the aisle to uphold the vital domestic institutions that rely on a competent, experienced president.”

Of course, we’ve known that all along, haven’t we?
