N.Y. Post Endorses McCain

Monday, 08 Sep 2008 09:12 PM

The New York Post endorsed Sen. John McCain for president on Monday.

In its editorial, the newspaper said "McCain's lifelong record of service to America, his battle-tested courage, unshakeable devotion to principle and clear grasp of the dangers and opportunities now facing the nation stand in dramatic contrast to the tissue-paper-thin résumé of his Democratic opponent, freshman Sen. Barack Obama."

The Post also said that, although McCain has been part of Washington politics for years, "he is not of Washington. He knows where the levers of power are located -- and how to manipulate them -- but he is not controlled by them."

The Post also said:

  • McCain's running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, was a charming, rock-solid outsider.

  • Obama and Sen. Joseph Biden "lead a party constructed of special interests."

  • McCain and Palin are better poised to lead on such issues as national security, taxes, trade, and energy.

    The paper summed up its endorsement by stating: "Sound security, economic and energy policies -- plus allegiance to principle -- are critical to keeping America safe and strong.

    "On all counts, John McCain and Sarah Palin understand this -- and that's why we're in their corner to the finish."
