Noting that the Republican presidential primary is about to morph from a “clown car nature” to become “deadly serious,” the Boston Herald today endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s quest for the GOP nomination.

“There is only one candidate in the Republican field with the integrity, the experience, the organizational strength and the intelligence to beat Barack Obama and that man is Mitt Romney,” the Herald’s endorsement proclaims  in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses Jan. 3 and the New Hampshire primary the following week.

“But perhaps more to the point, there is only one candidate who can put this nation back on the path to fiscal sanity and restore it to its central role on the world stage. That candidate is Mitt Romney,” the newspaper says in its endorsement, headlined "Nation Needs Romney."

The Herald acknowledges some drawbacks, saying, “Now we are more aware than most of our former governor’s reputation for being, well, a bit stiff. But this is a contest for what we used to call Leader of the Free World [before Barack Obama downgraded the job], not Mr. Congeniality or the guy you’d most like to have a beer with.

“We don’t need a buddy in the White House; we need a leader — one who can work with a deeply divided Congress and a deeply divided nation.”

In part, the newspaper tied its endorsement to the fact that “Romney as governor of a thoroughly Democratic state actually managed to get things done during his tenure. That may be a blot on his record to those in the Republican Party who put ideological purity above all else, but in our book that’s actually a plus.”

In short, the newspaper declares, “Mitt Romney can get the job done — the job of running for president and the job of governing. And the Herald is pleased to endorse his candidacy.”
