LA Times

18Oct08

So the LA Times endorses Barack Obama.

It is inherent in the American character to aspire to greatness, so it can be disorienting when the nation stumbles or loses confidence in bedrock principles or institutions. That’s where the United States is as it prepares to select a new president: We have seen the government take a stake in venerable private financial houses; we have witnessed eight years of executive branch power grabs and erosion of civil liberties; we are still recovering from a murderous attack by terrorists on our own soil and still struggling with how best to prevent a recurrence.

The guy whose career was created by the racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the Weather Underground founder Bill Ayers, and the convicted briber Tony Rezko. The Times is, unavoidably, impressed.

The Times without hesitation endorses Barack Obama for president.

Our nation has never before had a candidate like Obama, a man born in the 1960s, of black African and white heritage, raised and educated abroad as well as in the United States, and bringing with him a personal narrative that encompasses much of the American story but that, until now, has been reflected in little of its elected leadership. The excitement of Obama’s early campaign was amplified by that newness. But as the presidential race draws to its conclusion, it is Obama’s character and temperament that come to the fore. It is his steadiness. His maturity.

It’s creepy how they ignore reality.

    Wow, it’s LaLa Land…home to the Hollywood celebs, illegal aliens, and let’s not forget, Nancy Pelosi. No surprise this liberal rag from a bankrupt state would endorse him.
