George W. Bush.

Try to remember.

Right. Because we all know that the last thing Republicans want is more combat troops in Iraq.

Hey wingnuts, YOU'RE the ones who are calling for more involvement in this situation. That's all I'm hearing from any Republican that's speaking out on this issue, in addition to berating the President for either not acting soon enough or not taking the time to ask Congress before acting.

It's apparent that the NeoCons are in charge, no matter what Team Jacket the Pres happens to be wearing. I am totally opposed to this smash 'n grab in the ME, but the buck does stop, in theory, on the Pres' desk.

That said, for conservatives to whine about more boots on the ground in the ME, simply bc the current Pres says he's on the D-Team & happens to be black, is, indeed, the height of hypocrisy.

It's ONLY OK if you're an old white male Republican, apparently.

Varvel pulls this shit all the time.

No conservative political cartoonist has any memory beyond 2009.

I think it's a rather "cute" cartoon....poking fun at Barry's never ending golf outings (even thought he sucks at golf).

I think the only other President to play as much golf as Barry Hussein while in office was Woodrow Wilson....followed by Ike...no?

Signed,

"Pavlov's dog with the copious amount of saliva in his mouth" :-)

Then you're about as thick as the person who drew this dumb cartoon.

Yes, it's so awful how he plays golf an average of about twice a month. He's clearly addicted.

No. Not even close, as a simple google search would have told you.

Pity he doesn't take 3 times as much vacation time to clear brush on his fake ranch, then maybe you would swoon over him.

Dumb, my friend, is in the eye of the beholder.

I thought this editorial cartoon was rather sharp. Good stuff. :-)

Cheers!

P.S. - Woodrow at least could "hit 'em straight"....unlike Barry's drives off the tee that tend to go in ALL directions, just like his policies. Inconsistent and weak! (I understand Barry still plays in his old-man jeans, like the ones he used to throw out that first pitch at the MLB game)

I suppose if the beholder is also dumb then they might think something dumb is sharp.

Wow, you really burned him. You "understand" that a guy who plays golf does so in jeans (something I seriously doubt for a number of reasons) and that those jeans are "old man jeans" because... why? He's skinny? He's 50+ years old?

Mike Hawk said...

Yes, indeed, Obama's Dad Jeans have ROCKED throughout his presidency.

His fashion style ain't too bad, considering his half lily-white and half charcoal-black.

Take a look: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/03/obama-dad-jeans-through-the-years.html

Hooray4US said...

Gee whiz. Well NOW that I know that Barry HUSSEIN wears "old man jeans," esp to golf, that does it for me! NOW, and only NOW, do I detest that "half-rican."

Thanks Mr. "Hawk" for revealing the racist stupidity and vapidity of the rightwing. Sez it all.

Hooray4US said...

I don't mind this political cartoon all that much bc it is pretty much what's going on. The issue is the hypocrisy of the cartoonist, Varvel, who is just using this to gin up the usual suspects on the right.

I get it that "Mike Hawk/Anon" is just b.s.ing here, but the fact remains that Varvel's work is disingenuous and hypocritical.

gruaud said...

Ok, so the conservative rebuttal here to 'boots on the ground' in Iraq by the obviously hypocritical Varvel:

1) Obama is a poor golfer

2) He rocks his 'old man' jeans

Bravo. < golf claps >

Surprised no one brought up the grey poupon mustard again. Or the Latte salute. Or the gold curtains. Or the chintzy paperclip. Or his choice in Christmas tree decorations. Or feet on the desk. Or for wearing a bicycle helmet. Or for wearing a tan suit. Or, my favorite, for bumping fists with his wife.

And people wonder why this country is swirling down the crapper.


Anonymous said...

Not "swirling down the crapper" at all. Did you not hear Barry Hussein the other day stating that "the country is definitely better off today than it was 6 years ago"???

So what is it, gruaud?

For Pete's sake, make up your mind you liberal weenie. ;-)

the country is definitely better off today than it was 6 years ago

Which is totally true, though not a very high bar to clear after 8 years of W.

More the the point, the country has been on a overall downward trend for 30+ years, thanks mostly to the actions of right wing morons like Reagan and W and the idiots who empower them. Occasionally we get a centrist president like Clinton or Obama to staunch the bleeding a bit, but the damage proves too great to reverse in the long term. Every year the Republicans lurch a little more to the right and Democrats follow suit trying to keep up.

liberal weenie

"weenie"? Are you actually a 5 year old, or do you just have the intellect of one?

Mike Hawk said...

So.....gruaud is wrong is what you're saying?

The country isn't "swirling down thw crapper", thanks to Barry our Savior-In-Chief.

So gruaud never gets ANYTHING wrong (in his own mind, that is). Say it ain't so.

gruaud is quite the intellect on here. Did he have a lapse in "intellectualism"?

Or, perhaps gruaud is just becoming wiser with age and is becoming more conservative. Who knows....

Anybody over the age of 30 who is still a liberal weenie is a person who hasn't fully grown-up and taken ownership of the responsibilities of being a productive and self-determining adult.

Liberalism is a serious mental illness.

Nope. Said no such thing. Perhaps you're having some reading difficulties.

Things are at least temporarily better, but the long term trajectory is still bad. Thanks Ronnie!

I'm not sure how this is so hard to comprehend, the idea of a long term trend vs. a short term trend isn't that complicated. Perhaps if your intellect is so limited you have to resort to tired old cliches and lame insults like "weenie" these concepts might just be too much for you to really grasp. Maybe you'd best run along and leave the adults alone.

Not at all. The reason so many people refuse to vote for Republicans is because their policies, ALL OF THEM, make the lives of the average American worse.

The last thing the Republicans passed into law that made the average American's life better was the creation of the EPA in 1971. Of course, Republicans today want to get rid of that agency, which proves my initial point.

The only people who benefit from Republican policies are:

1. Millionaires who have $0 invested in the stock market.
2. Defense contractors.
3. Owners of companies that pollute heavily.

Which one describes you, Hawk/Anon? You've got to fall in one of those categories, otherwise, you'd be casting votes for people who are going to hurt you, and you've already assured us that you're too smart for that, right?

gruaud said...

Anon posits it very well.

The reason Obama was elected was to try and arrest the downward economic, foreign policy and cultural trajectories spawned by Nixon, exacerbated by Reagan, and accelerated by Bush the Lesser.

That he failed in many of his moderate objectives doesn't concern me as much as his successes in carrying out conservative objectives that liberals everywhere find abhorrent.

That he slowed the economic bleeding, wound down the two disastrous wars, had Osama bin Laden shot to shit, and implemented ACA: great.

That he did not prosecute the heinous war crimes of the Bush administration, let Wall Street off the hook, allowed NSA carte blanche, and used drone strikes as an instrument of foreign policy: terrible.

He'll go down in history as a fair to middlin' president who was a moderate conservative, not a liberal weenie; and certainly not a socialist.

ferschitz said...

Those who are the so-called "liberal weenie" commenters here know that I have no love for O'Bomber. My solution is to vote what is disingenuously called "third" party.

Our votes don't count anyway. Might as well get some alternative viewpoints, if possible, out into the national conversation.

I think Obama is a dismal failure, myself, but don't get me started on the sheer utter worthlessness of the GOP.

Citizens would do well to realize that we're in a CLASS War, and the PTB use the 2 branches of the UniParty to *distract* citizens from how badly we are being ripped off & played by the PTB.

Those who comment here regularly make some good points. I don't agree with everything they say, but they make a hell of a lot more sense - and imo (which doesn't matter) are more grounded in reality - than many conservatives I know, esp the ones who choose to comment here.

My advice: give up your addiction to the so-called "two party" system. Neither party has any interest in serving the needs of the rapidly dwindling middle & working classes. They only serve the needs of the upper 2% to 3% (at best).

Getting into pissing contests here is all very well & can be an amusing game to play, but the bottom line is that neither the D Team or the R Team is serving any of us.

Historians will also wonder what, exactly, Barack Obama could have accomplished had he not encountered the greatest obstruction to proposed policies ever put forth by Congress.

Your assessment of Obama is pretty accurate, but for all we know, he could have been great had he merely received a modicum of courtesy from the Republicans in Congress.

The Democrats gave even George W. Bush's lousy policies an opportunity to come to a vote. With Obama, it's All Filibuster, All the Time.

See, Mike Hawk?

This is how adults talk.

ferschitz said...

You make a point, CharlieE, but that gets back to my point, which is that both branches of the UniParty play off of one another in order to either do nothing of any consequence or have excuses for why they can't pass this, that or the other program.

Duly noted that O'Bomber has been pretty good at making Wars happen with stunning regularity, despite not having Congressional approval first.

I totally agree that the GOP plays the obstructive game very well, and I am totally disgusted with it. That said, O & the D-Team have wasted opportunity after opportunity to work around it, in particular with Health Care, where we ended up with the Heritage Foundation developed, rightwing-desired, back-door deal with BigIns (by Obama) POS called ACA.

I know some of you here like ACA, and if it's working for you: great (really). We should have had something like Single Payer, which WAS possible given the make up of the House and Senate at the time. But we didn't get that. We got some POS conservative think tank give-away to BigIns, BigHospital, BigPharma, BigMedDevice, instead.

I'll stop now, but speaking for myself, I don't buy it that O was so constrained by teh eeevul Republicans that he simply couldn't get things done.

Just saying... JMHO, of course.

Schitzengiggles said...

Great comments from the regulars and I agree on most points. I love how when you get an R or a D in a discussion ...argument really because neither one is really interested in adult discourse... it's always a comparison between usually the last two criminals in office and both take the position of "Our shit doesn't stink". It's laughable and mildly amusing that someone could be so delusional and short-sighted.

CharlieE said...

I certainly don't feel that way. I don't hold the Democrats in particularly high regard; they're scared of Republicans and are largely inept and ineffective. They've got some good policy positions, but are steadfast in their refusal to embrace them.

The Republicans, on the other hand, are unequivocally malevolent.

I'm never pleased to see the ballot on election day. In my 30+ years as a voter, I've only once voted for a Presidential winner and I have never voted for a candidate for Senate who actually won.

In my case, my commentary is almost always about people for whom I did not vote, regardless of their party.

gruaud said...

I think the Dems are more scared of the corporate media than they are of the GOP politicians.

The Democratic party has far too many Blue Dogs, corporate shills, Me too warhawks, and triangulating phonies.

I'm not exactly a democrat. I'm a liberal weenie. You know: the guys who ended the Great Depression, won WWII, and built the Middle Class.

Those guys.
