Daily News endorses Obama

Does this editorial seem a tad bleak?

The world of America as we know it in the first decade of the 21st century is a dark, money-in-the-mattress place of foreclosed homes, unemployment, falling apart bridges, lost health benefits and a prolonged war that many would be glad to see end. It's a place where years of political policies have allowed Wall Street to gamble with the economic stability of the entire world, but the middle class can't get even a small break. Meanwhile politicians don't seem to care about anything but their sexual conquests, palling around with the monied special interests, and doing whatever it takes to keep their safe jobs with sweet retirement and health packages. No one has ever downsized the government.

It's a place where the good ol' American ingenuity and hard work is rewarded with outsourced jobs. Where no one can even count on their carefully tended homes or retirement funds tiding them over through a modest old age.

We think it's time to turn away from McCain's hopeless rhetoric of impending, most-certain doom to the bright side. That's where Sen. Barack Obama is.

Whole thing.
