Calling Mitt Romney a "principled, pragmatic leader," The Dallas Morning News on Saturday endorsed the Republican candidate's bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

In an editorial, the newspaper said Obama has shown himself to be "less leader than follower" during his four years in the White House, unable to reverse the soaring national debt and blaming his predecessor for "the mess he left behind."

While the News acknowledges that Romney's comments to big-money backers in a secretly-recorded video were "ill-advised," and that his "famed flip-flops" are "worrisome," the newspaper praised the former Massachusetts governor as someone who "has shown an ability to lead" and "can get Washington working again."
