The Economist endorses Obama

News

President Obama's endorsement for reelection from The Economist isn't exactly glowing. (The subheader: "America could do better than Barack Obama; sadly, Mitt Romney does not fit the bill.") But it's something.

From the endorsement:

A man who once personified hope and centrism set a new low by unleashing attacks on Mitt Romney even before the first Republican primary. Yet elections are about choosing somebody to run a country. And this choice turns on two questions: how good a president has Mr Obama been, especially on the main issues of the economy and foreign policy? And can America really trust the ever-changing Mitt Romney to do a better job? On that basis, the Democrat narrowly deserves to be re-elected.
