In a stunning piece dated October 29, the iconic magazine, The New Yorker, endorsed Barack Obama, offering details on his accomplishments and the lack of Willard Mitt Romney’s integrity, ending with this sobering paragraph:
The reëlection of Barack Obama is a matter of great urgency. Not only are we in broad agreement with his policy directions; we also see in him what is absent in Mitt Romney—a first-rate political temperament and a deep sense of fairness and integrity. A two-term Obama Administration will leave an enduringly positive imprint on political life. It will bolster the ideal of good governance and a social vision that tempers individualism with a concern for community. Every Presidential election involves a contest over the idea of America. Obama’s America—one that progresses, however falteringly, toward social justice, tolerance, and equality—represents the future that this country deserves.
Take the time to read the entire piece. If you’re an Obama supporter or an undecided voter, it is worth your time.
