Another Obama Endorsement: The Economist

30 Oct

Yet another endorsement for Barack Obama – this time from the Economist.

“It is impossible to forecast how important any presidency will be. Back in 2000 America stood tall as the undisputed superpower, at peace with a generally admiring world. The main argument was over what to do with the federal government’s huge budget surplus. Nobody foresaw the seismic events of the next eight years. When Americans go to the polls next week the mood will be very different. The United States is unhappy, divided and foundering both at home and abroad. Its self-belief and values are under attack.”

“Merely by becoming president, he would dispel many of the myths built up about America: it would be far harder for the spreaders of hate in the Islamic world to denounce the Great Satan if it were led by a black man whose middle name is Hussein; and far harder for autocrats around the world to claim that American democracy is a sham. America’s allies would rally to him: the global electoral college on our website shows a landslide in his favour. At home he would salve, if not close, the ugly racial wound left by America’s history and lessen the tendency of American blacks to blame all their problems on racism.”

    Yes the Economist is well known for its hype (irony, dear reader). Hate to break it to you sfoc, but McCain attended ACORN rallies and spoke very highly of it. Disappointing that the best Republican supporters can do is keep bringing up Ayers … smacks of desperation doesn’t it? I notice you didn’t mention Sarah Palin’s secessionist husband by the way …
