Cartoonist has a pen, too Nov8 by Thomas Mitchell Michael Ramirez cartoon in today’s IBD. Isn’t it pathetic how easy it is to parody the president? Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLinkedInTumblrPinterestMoredisqusLike this:Like Loading... Related
Yes, it’s sad that the whole world lacks respect for him, and probably America, because Americans actually elected him. It’s humiliating.
But good for cartoonists and parodists. Is that a word?
iShrug states a good case and the same thing could be said about Nevada voters electing Harry Reid. Curmudgeon Harry has two months left as majority leader to continue channeling Russian socialists, we should be wary of both him and Obama in that two months. I doubt there will be much change in Washington as Republicans lack the killer instinct, they will fold to Obama even though in the majority.
That won’t do, Vernon. All newly elected Senators ran on the platform of repealing PinocchioCare.
AND it doesn’t hurt that PinocchioCare is a screwed up mess.
And another ray of sunshine! Even lefty Oregon voted against giving illegals drivers licenses. Pinocchio Amnesty will turn this country on it’s ear! (Paging John Brown! Please pick up the white courtesy phone, John Brown!)
Am I hearing Conservatives criticize Obama for not engaging in a more liberal foreign policy?
Of course. One thing both conservatives and disaffected liberals do agree on is that Obama simply did not live up to his promises. He has waffled and slipped and allowed others to try and do the hard work of spending his political capitol.
We do agree albeit for different reasons.
Not sure what he was supposed to do about Syria and Ukraine (except to not stupidly draw a “line in the sand” that he never enforced!). Any of you geniuses have a Monday morning quarterback opinion?
Sometimes you just have to let people fall down and find out for themselves what they are doing doesn’t work, while trying to minimize the collateral damage.
Wait — weren’t we all supposed to be dead by now from Ebola brought over the Mexican border by ISIS terrorists?
petey, that was Pinocchio’s plan, wasn’t it? Fortunately, this cretin can’t do anything right, can he?
I bet all those ISIS leaders were mocking Obama as well, just before the bombs hit.
SARS beat Ebola to the punch line!
Ends justify the means…again…
I notice none of you presented any opinion about what Obama should have done differently. Even Monday morning quarterbacks say what they would have done.
This video is 11minutes, Rin. But it answers what this conservative wants (me!). I believe Pinocchio is doing exactly what he wants to do. His view, of what America should be, is very different from anything I’ve ever came to believe. Check out his own biographies (there’s 2 of them!!) He doesn’t share the same American values that someone growing up here, embraces.
Your core value appears to be getting other people to pay for your hospital bills.
Gee, petey, you’re still trying to pound Athos with something from the 1980’s? Remind me never to mention what I did in the ’70’s and ’80’s, before I became a sentient being…
What makes you think I was being critical? His decisions were perfectly rational.
And herein is another example of elitist gall. You have absolutely no idea of my circumstances 35 years ago, petey. And yet you can state that my decisions were “perfectly rational”.
What’s wrong with you people, petey? Do you really think you’re THAT MUCH SMARTER than the rest of us, and therefore, must rule over the dumb masses? Look at Pinocchio. He’s never ran so much as a hot dog stand, and now he’s the CEO of the greatest country on the planet. And he’s an abject failure (at least to the majority of us, the shareholders!)
You mean your decision to avoid your (uninsured) medical bills by declaring personal bankruptcy was irrational?
And you agree that Dr. Gruber’s honesty about being dishonest is a noble characteristic?
It was perfectly rational for you to declare personal bankruptcy and saddle other people with your (uninsured) medical bills. What I object to is that, having gone through that experience, you see nothing wrong with a system in which people are either financially destroyed by healthcare costs or, alternatively, pass those costs onto their fellow taxpayers. Your position is morally indefensible.
Morally indefensible? Since when has morals meant anything to a elitist, socialist dictator like yourself?
In order to have morals, petey, you must first have some form of God. Situational ethics only works for those that are in power.
And as for today’s rendition of PinocchioCare, there is no morally defensible argument for bankrupting the country and providing less care. It doesn’t work, it won’t work, and if you really cared about people being destroyed by healthcare costs, you would scrap this farce of a “comprehensive bill” and pass a market driven solution.
Something like Dr. Ben Crane’s health savings accounts.
So Ayn Rand, a passionate athiest, had no morals?
So, you’re comparing yourself to Ayn Rand?
No I am not. Among many other things, I am a religious person, and Rand was a dedicated athiest. By your standards, she was without morals.
I also do not agree with the Lenninist approach to politics that Rand and her followers espoused, but that is another story.
Your compass is broken, petey. Better recheck your god, and then upgrade to the real deal. And the beauty is, you can accept Him anytime.
Which “god” do I need to “recheck” and what is the “real deal” to which I should upgrade?
