The next president must be the one with the best chance to get the crushing, $16 trillion national debt under control, coupled with the more immediate need of enabling a vibrant job market.
It is because the economy is paramount that The Tennessean endorses Gov. Mitt Romney for president.
What's really interesting is that as you read the endorsement, you can tell that the editors of the Tennessean really, really don't like Romney. Much of the article is devoted to all the reasons why they don't want to elect Romney.
Yet they give the endorsement to Romney, meaning they have that much less confidence in Obama.
I wonder how many Democrats feel the same way, yet won't say so. An how many of them will just stay home come election day.
