Subtle disclosure, Hughes.

Join my quixotic hashtag campaign to ask the White House to tell us what books the Obamas bought. We’re nerdy! We’re curious! We like to see authors get a sales bump and shopping at independent bookstores get an extra news cycle. #ReleaseTheReadingList!

In considering which candidate to endorse, The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board had hoped that Romney would exhibit the same talents for organization, pragmatic problem-solving and inspired leadership that he displayed here more than a decade ago. Instead, we have watched him morph into a friend of the far right, then tack toward the center with breathtaking aplomb. Through a pair of presidential debates, Romney’s domestic agenda remains bereft of detail and worthy of mistrust.

Therefore, our endorsement must go to the incumbent, a competent leader who, against tough odds, has guided the country through catastrophe and set a course that, while rocky, is pointing toward a brighter day. The president has earned a second term. Romney, in whatever guise, does not deserve a first.

"Tumblr: The President writes a stunning 5,000 word takedown/indictment of the American political system, and pledges to legalize marijuana, allow gay marriage, and cease drone killings. He doesn’t include any cool gifs, however, so the post is ignored in favor of a photoshop of Obama as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad."

This is horseshit, Slacktory dot com! The President ALWAYS includes cool gifs.

"The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we’re talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people….So what I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians — a majority whom are men — making health care decisions on behalf of women. Those are broader issues and that is a significant difference and approach between me and the other party."
Barack Obama, PREACH!
