Financial Times Endorses Obama!

This is kind of surprising, but as the headline says, The Financial Times endorsed Barack Obama! It's not necessarily a praising article, though. If anything, it remains objective as it actively criticizes Obama and promises that he will disappoint as President. Their point is much like David Sedaris':
[Writing in the New Yorker] "To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?”

"To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked."
