I'm guessing my understanding of this cartoon would be greatly improved if I actually watched football. :-D

Dayvoe said...

Yes, it would.

The team is behind by five points with INCHES left to go and they're trying to decide whether to kick the ball (which would only get them three points) or punt (which gives up possession of the ball altogether).

Annoyingly Apt.

Excellent cartoon. Far too apt, David. Makes me want to scream... "Is this the shortest honeymoon in history?"

Obama as Carter. That's the sad reality.

Naah, Carter was an idiot.

Obama is evil.

I lived through Jimmah Cartah and the explosion in gasoline prices, the Iranian hostage crisis, etc.

Obama, on the other hand, has nationalized most of the auto industry, the banking industry, *tried* (nsuccessfully, so far) the health care industry, treats terrorists as everyday criminals no different than your local 7-11 robber (see Christmas Day terrorist)... Need I go on? Need I?

May I ask - Do *any* of you liberal Obama kool-aid drinkers have any remorse over your vote?

How's that hopey-changey thing working out for you?

Are you *really* any better today than you were 14 months ago?

Is your employer doing better? (Doubtful).

How big was your raise this year? How big do you think it'll be this year or next?

Has *your* life improved because Obama has made others *pay*? If so, how? Hmmmm?

Maria said...

Yes, the last eight years were nirvana -- aside from the worst terrorist attack in our nation's history, thousands more dying during Katrina and coming *this* close to a complete collapse of our entire economy -- but other than that just peachy!

Carter's an idiot? That's rich, considering the village idiot that occupied the White House before Obama.

CM -

Your ability to seemingly take joy in pain is strange indeed.
It denotes a deep disturbance in your soul.

As Maria correctly notes, most, if not all of the problems bedeviling our nation are a direct result of what came before. The fact that I and other Dems are frustrated with Obama does not obviate that fact.

You may try to blame Obama for the economy, but he inherited it, along with a host of massive problems (the aforementioned two wars) which have wasted billions and billions of dollars. Those are your dollars and mine; the tax revenue that you Right Wingers constantly harp on. Funny that when you're spending it it's OK, but when a Democrat does, they're "tax and spend liberals." Ya can't have it both ways, buddy.

I find the "hopey changey" thing working out quite well. We avoided another Great Depression, the economy is gaining some footing (don't even scream about unemployment...it's ALWAYS a lagging indicator), and the underwear terrorist will be behind very secure bars the rest of his life.

I don't quite agree with the decision of taking over GM; they've made bad decisions for 20 years and should probably have gone away long ago but the jolt to the economy at the time could have been catastrophic so keeping tens of thousands of workers employed was more important (unless you agree that unemployment should be worse CM).

My life is better, I believe the country and the world is better. And we're doing things the American way again.

I'd call your post twisted logic or reasoning CM but nothing about your post resembles logic or reason especially juxtaposed with the Bush administration.
