In 2008, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch endorsed Democrat candidate Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States of America. Their Editorial Board noted his intellect, temperament and equanimity under pressure. Though he was as yet unproven, still they found him to be presidential in all respects that the word implies.
In a current editorial and endorsement they reiterate that they have not been disappointed in his presidency. They wrote,
"This is a serious man. And now he is a proven leader.President Obama has earned a second term."
Editorial: Obama for president: A second term for a serious man
By the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Board
October 7, 2012
Four years ago, in endorsing Democrat Barack Obama for president, we noted his intellect, his temperament and equanimity under pressure. He was unproven, but we found him to be presidential, in all that that word implies.
In that, we have not been disappointed. This is a serious man. And now he is a proven leader. He has earned a second term.
Mr. Obama sees an America where the common good is as important as the individual good. That is the vision on which the nation was founded. It is the vision that has seen America through its darkest days and illuminated its best days. It is the vision that underlies the president's greatest achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Twenty years from now, it will be hard to find anyone who remembers being opposed to Obamacare.
