The Chicago Tribune has endorsed President
Barack Obama in the presidential race. The newspaper applauded Obama
for his work in foreign affairs and his steadfast approach to the U.S.
economic crisis. The Tribune also called on Obama, in a second presidency, to address the federal debt, adding that his stable temperament makes him an attractive candidate when it comes to being able to address the nation's problems.
The publication questioned Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney's policies, including his plans to balance the
budget, and his flip-floppy nature on certain issues, like health care,
immigration and reproductive choice.
The newspaper also endorsed Obama during his 2008 run for the White House.
