Well, this does it. The Economist is officially a Liberal RagWe very much hope that whichever of these men wins office will prove our pessimism wrong. Once in the White House, maybe the Romney of the mind will become reality, cracking bipartisan deals to reshape American government, with his vice-president keeping the headbangers in the Republican Party in line. A re-elected President Obama might learn from his mistakes, clean up the White House, listen to the odd businessman and secure a legacy happier than the one he would leave after a single term. Both men have it in them to be their better selves; but the sad fact is that neither candidate has campaigned as if that is his plan.
As a result, this election offers American voters an unedifying choice. Many of The Economistís readers, especially those who run businesses in America, may well conclude that nothing could be worse than another four years of Mr Obama. We beg to differ. For all his businesslike intentions, Mr Romney has an economic plan that works only if you donít believe most of what he says. That is not a convincing pitch for a chief executive. And for all his shortcomings, Mr Obama has dragged Americaís economy back from the brink of disaster, and has made a decent fist of foreign policy. So this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows, and re-elect him.OLine. DLine. Secondary.

Anyone who is swayed by, or cares even slightly about what a newspaper or magazine thinks of the candidates is a dolt that has no business voting.It's ok, I don't like you either.

You know what else is a joke? That article written by Noel Sheppard. I'd like to see his outrage about Rush Limbaugh, but none of his articles seem to have that.
There seems to be a trend in his blog posts.
