The ultimate Barack Obama endorsement
Bob Wells | Oct 24, 2012
I must call your attention to the beautifully crafted, compelling endorsement of President Obama presented in this week’s issue of The New Yorker. It reminds us — eloquently and at some length — of his strengths (and his shortcomings). It also critiques the ideology and past deeds of Romney and his allies. Excerpt:
(T)he reëlection of a President who has been progressive, competent, rational, decent, and, at times, visionary is a serious matter. The President has achieved a run of ambitious legislative, social, and foreign-policy successes that relieved a large measure of the human suffering and national shame inflicted by the Bush Administration. Obama has renewed the honor of the office he holds.
As for me, I must confess I’m really scared about a possible Romney victory. Are you? Feel free to comment.
