The Bus Tour

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

Can't wait to read some of the comments this cartoon will generate from right wing knot heads.

As if any tea bagger candidate stands a snow ball's chance in beating Obama in 2012.

We should cancel the election. Let's use the millions of dollars that would have been spent on excruciatingly offensive TV spots to help pay off Bush's deficit.

I suppose the Constitution would frown on that, not to mention the 24 hour cable 'news' networks.

I guess the circus is coming whether we like it or not.

Picky gotta love 'em. Of course, we have to remember Palin 'did it' to herself..leaving office..on her own..before the term was over..who does that??

A complete moron..that's who. And, just in case there are any incomplete morons out there feeling a bit slighted..I'm sorry..but you now have someone to look up to or down upon, whichever you prefer.

Of course, if that hitchhiker is really bent upon getting to "2012" he might might make himself a sign which reads, "Will provide jobs for Votes."

Who could work..Woody

more mysogyny from you libs are uncomfortable with her..

funny how the liberal media is whining about palin's bus tour. over the last couple of days i've heard over and over again on cbs, abc, nbc how her tour is taking attention away from the other candidates in the republican what? why should that be her concern? ... stupid media. ..

also they don't like that she's not informing them about her what? why should she?

woody....."who does that??"...obama did..he didn't finish his senate term...and many other leave on their own before their job is done.

you libs think obama is invinsible in 2012....pretty damn naive....i'd like to know why?

obalma is pretty much accepted as a fraud and incompetant at this point.....if hillary clinton chalenged him at the convention she'd probably win.

high gas, high food costs, extremely high unemployment and underemployment...young people, black americans and independents are very disapointed in obama and the results of his statist laugh at sarah palin, but sarah palin can beat obama...

obama doesn't deserve a second term...

if you lefties think the american people think there's no one out there that can't do a better job than obama're screwy......there's genuine anger out there for what's transpired over the last two years......many people bought obama's lies and are very disapointed.

the biggest scam of all is how you lefties and the media keep insisting that obama can't be beaten in 2012.......

it will take corruption on a mass the way they do it in chicago...for obama to win in lefties better think of a better plan than ridiculing sarah palin.....

did the media complain in 2008 about obama taking attention away from other democrat party candidates when he held large rallies? no, they didn' what's this libs and the lib media are transparent in your geniune fear of palin or anyone else who tells it the way it is....

rolando said...

You said it all in your last sentence, SeaMonkey. It is their "genuine fear of Palin". They lose control of their bladders just thinking about her becoming President...much like their legs tingle and their undies get sticky just thinking about Dear Leader. They are all emotion and no thought.

June 1, 2011 at 8:20 a.m.
dude_abides said...

After saying the left is all emotion and no thought, I would invite you to reread screamhonky's posts in a non-emotional way, rolando. By the way, I have to search to find any related news, but... is bin Laden still dead? I just cannot believe we finally got him after 10 YEARS. God bless the USA, and the Chicago thug liberal wing nut tree hugger Marxist that finally got the real 9/11 culprit. Is my patriotism showing too much emotion, rolando? If so, get the hell out of my country. Sound familiar? Sound ridiculous? lol...Stay the course...4 more years...a thousand points of light... Read my lips...

SeaMonkey said...

quite true, rolando.......instead of obssessing over palin in 2012..the democrat party should look at how they're going to convince the electorate that obama is competant..all the facts/numbers prove otherwise. most likely palin will not be the republican candidate in they need to let go of her. obama has lost the independent vote, a substantial amount of black support and young people, at this point, know a fraud when they see one. it's dillussional to believe that obama has it in the bag...there's no evidence of that...nov. 2nd 2010 proved america is not satisfied with him. check out msnbc's host..brasheer...desperately trying to illustrate how palin has broken federal law by using a flag on the side of her tour bus.....he's saying it can't be used for profit....desperation.......the left's anger at her is boiling's hillarious to watch...she's not the president..she doesn't hold any office...she hasn't even announced she's running....yet look at the outrage on the left at her every over the top...she doesn't make public policy..she hasn't signed anything into laws....yet look at the's embarrassing...

that's the fate of someone who proudly states their view and doesn't apologize to the media..or kiss up to them.....they hate it.

You think the American people are tired of Obama?

The right wing knot heads in Congress have provided an iron-clad guarantee of another Democratic sweep in 2012.

This campaign ad will run in every election, from dog catcher to President: Paul Ryan or a metaphoric elephant pushing a wheel-chair bound senior off a cliff.

Even if Obama were the worst President in history, the republicans have ensured his re-election. Quote all the numbers you like, from unemployment to national debt, it doesn't matter. Most people like Medicare. Heck, 70% of republicans like Medicare.

Famous quote: republicans claim that government doesn't work. Then they get elected a prove it.

you see, you leftist twits.....the democrat party is out of the maintream..and never more so than under obama.....remember, morons...he ran as moderate..then ran to the left like an insane jackass..which is what he's the prefect example of how the democrat party is out of it's mind and how out of touch they are.........the new democrat party chairman..some woman, i forgot her name.....said, " republicans believe illegal immigration should be a crime"


first of all..they're not immigrants..they're illegal aliens/illegal entrants/criminals.....

the head of one of our two major parties..believe illegally entering this country is not a crime...

and she believes by accusing the republicans of believing it's a crime that the democrats will gain from that?.........and you leftist twits make fun of palin.

@ Rolando, I don't understand your plight. Viewing your post, from past to present, you shed no light on what position you stand for. Are you a band-wagoner? I assume you are an adult and are slightly educated. With that said, I think you need to elaborate on which side you actually side with. At least SeaMonkey and L4F don't jump ship. Though their positions vex the piss out of me, I still know how they are positioned. Are you a clandestine right wing nut job? Inquiring minds would like to know.

Sarah Palin has the media jumping through hoops trying to figure her out and she probably spends her nights rolling on the floor laughing her ass off at them.She knows that the liberal media hates her and she now embraces that fact.She is just jerking them around by the noses.They follow her every where she goes listening to every word just hoping and praying(what the heck am I saying,they don't believe in God)that she misspeaks a single word so they can blow it up all out of proportion.That is their modus operandi.So go Sarah,you are giving all us independents and conservatives a fun time laughing at the media with you!The left seems to be absolutely terrified of her running otherwise they would ignore her like they are the other candidates right now!She has the media whipped up into a frenzy right now and even they can't figure out why and they hate her even more for it.Keep up the good work Sarah we all need the laugh right now as Dear Leader tries to spend into third world status.

Fool on the Hill - Lennon and McCartney

Day after day, Alone on a bus,

The girl with the foolish grin just cannot ever be hushed,

But everyone wants to know her, They can see that she's just a tool, And she never gives an answer,

But the tool on the bus, Sees the sun going down, And the eyes in her head, Say’s the world isn’t round.

Well on the way, Head up her ass, The girl with the folksy voices talking just like a spaz

But everyone wants to know her, and we know that it’s just a scam, and she never seems to notice,

But the tool on the bus, Sees the sun going down, Behind eyes on her face, There is Grand Canyon space.

And she never listens to us, She says its we who are the fools,

And Sarah doesn’t even like us,

But the tool on the bus, Sees the sun going down, And the eyes in her head, Say’s the world isn’t round.

Ooh, Round and round and round

SeaMonkey, you add nothing to the discourse. I wish you'd keep your hate speech to yourself. You don't represent the mainstream of any party but the crazy party. Please recognize that you have a problem and seek help.

Tderng, I don't think that many people hate Sarah Palin, they are just afraid of what she'd do if she were actually elected. She'd be fine as a weather girl, but she's not fit to be President. The leader of the free world shouldn't be an intellectual lightweight.

demint, herman cain, michelle bachman, paul ryan, rick perry, romney, pawlenty..and yes, palin.. and whoever else....all, all superior to our glorious leader who's soiling our constitution in the white house now. one looks more foolish now than those who thought obama was "the one"...and voted for him.......a literal dumb ass, a marxist idealogue who came into office with so little real life experience that it took him until two years later to realize that jobs have to be created from the private sector in order for our economy to function.

in your ideal world a dope head like john lennon would be president.....

sing obama's version of, imagine.....imagine there're no jobs....and nothing to do..except for me, i'll play golf, eat all the crappy food i want and ya'll can figure out how to get by..

obama..the man who said there are 57 states..the man who thinks the plural of the word feet "feets".....i guess a college education isn't what it used to be, huh?

at this point..sandy, the democrats have the burden of proving that obama doesn't have his head up his ass....which he clearly does...

you can cheerlead all you want, like bennett, but obama has proven to be a hyporcrite, a liar and an elitist.....not a good rep. to have going into reelection.

So SeaMonkey, I hate to repeat your profane statements, but I recall Obama killing Osama bin Laden, ending the Iraq war, ending pre-existing conditions, bringing affordable health care to all... and a whole list of other things. You must have missed all this, which makes me ask, just where your head is?

SeaMonkey, if I were you I'd take Leaf's advice. It's obvious your political satire carries no usual. All you do is post hate filled tirades yearning for a response. You bring nothing of substance to the table. You talk about Obama lying, I can give you a timeline of the Bush lies I heard throughout his tyranny. This site is for intellectuals who want to debate in a transparent format. As I've challenged you in the past, which you've failed, I challenge you again to bring substance to the table. Let's have a clean and honest debate about facts, not political theatre.

Re Palin: I'm of two minds about her running. I would greatly enjoy the entertainment factor and it would equally increase the likelihood of Pres. Obama getting re-elected BUT what calamities would befall the world if she actually got in?

I’m curious. IF……IF…I’m saying IF here people. IF I was to vote for a person based only on his ethnicity, (because perhaps he was a Junior Senator with little political experience who practically always voted "here" on controversial / important issues that could jeopardize a run on the presidency by revealing his true position and direction for America for example) just so’s I could tell my grandkids I was a part of History, would I be classified as a “racist”? Or would the term “racist” only apply if I voted AGAINST the person for any reason what-so-ever? Of course, I’m sure this has never occurred…..Has it?

“The fate of the United States of America may depend on how savvy we the people are in seeing what he (Obama) is doing – and how soon before the situation becomes irretrievable.”

Thomas Sowell column in today’s TPF

Please keep your vile left language to a minimum for a well-educated, knowledgeable, respected man with common sense.

Too bad the lame stream media has a hear-no-evil, see-no-evil and speak-no-evil attitude in its coverage of Obama, but beats up on everybody else especially Sarah in a vicious unprecedented long term way. It is funny and sad at the same time. Makes one wonder why they do it-fear perhaps or just filling the airways with garbage vs. delivering truthful news regarding Obama. So, go Sarah keep them twisting in the wind—you are savvy and playing them well . Take it to the bank. Capitalism really does work.

Obama has camouflaged himself well with the help from the liberal media. He is leading his lambs/supporters to the slaughter and they don’t have a clue. He could care less about your well-being. He wants power over all of us with your blind help, that all. Maybe when he is out of the WH he can go be a dictator in some other country. OPS, no he will be out taking advantage of capitalism and making money you fools, but he does not want us to do that.

Again from the Democratic Playbook 101:

Repeat a lie often enough for our voter base to accept it as truth. Always spin a defeat as a victory for your side and your opponent’s victory as a failure, no matter how uncomfortable you may be in doing so. Remember, our voters are emotional, not logical, and they easily led to think what we tell them to think, and repeat what we tell them to repeat.

Never take sides against the Democrat Party leadership. Stand with your party NO MATTER WHAT. Always discourage the voters from considering the consequences of Democrat proposed legislation, and instead appeal to their stronger emotional urges. Remember to stir hatred, envy, and the divisiveness of class warfare, and you will “own” your voter base forever. Party first, country…….never. There is NO time this will not apply.

I see, mymy, 'tis far better to run up a three trillion dollar war against the wrong country than to kill one man and his terrorist organization. What was I thinking? If only I thought like you and dubya.

Just how did Obama make it worse than Bush? Bush didn't even have the cost of war show up on the books till he was leaving. He and the Republicans took a surplus budget drove our country into the worst debt ever and killed thousands of Americans, plus close to a million Iraqis, and this okay with you? Not a serious problem.
What are the problems more serious than this? Trying to end subsidies for oil companies or tax cuts for the rich, or regulating polluters? Are those the serious problems for you, mymy?

The bus will run out of gas. Now only if Obama's transportation is interrupted. We are better off when he is playing golf, quit griping when ne is on the links he isn't making decisions or policy. If Obama wins I hope republicans control both houses by a narrow margin. If a republican becomes president I hope both houses go to the democrats with a narrow margin.

One of the founders said the best government is no government, we are real close to that.

I don't quite understand why, but everyone keeps trying to apply conventional wisdom to Palin. Stop it. Nothing she does is conventional, and never was. She will be a candidate, and she might very likely win the nomination. Fun – fun - fun. However, she will not be debating any of her opponents. Debating is a sign of intelligence and reasoning, something she and her supporters (here especially) truly despise. She will not appear on any news shows other than Fox; she won't have to, for the same reason. Her followers couldn't care less about her world views.

These facts are especially hard for educated and analytical minds to comprehend, but we are seeing a very slow motion transformation the Republican Party.
They chose to release these poxes upon us (Palin, the tea party), thinking they would be easy to corral and control. They’re not!

The modern American typically relates warmly to the use of English to the extent that it summons the oral -- 'You betcha,' or 'Reload' -- while passing from indifference to discomfort to the extent that its use leans towards the artifice of written language. As such, Sarah Palin can talk, basically, like a child and be lionized by sanctimonious Obama-blaming zealots or tea baggers as an avatar of American culture. And linguistically, let's face it: to them, she is.

98% of conservatives are closeted homo’s and spendthrifts. This is primarily due to their parents not hugging them enough because daddy was off exploiting minorities or practicing ‘family values’ and mommy became a robot who dresses up but never leaves the house.

As they grew older, they became sacred of the real world; making up fake enemies, watching 80's action movies and believing that Reagan was always right. They need to thank Chuck Norris for his delta force movies. He made them fearful of anyone not like them.

The result of this type of upbringing always produces an adult that is narrow minded, mean spirited, and whiny. Prone to tantrums and an inability to stay on subject, these fully developed babies have over-sized fear centers and an undersized neocortex.
Of the newer species is Moronis Neo-consis. Examples can be seen above. They have been known to form tangled groups; hoot and jump; throw stones and sticks; always running way screaming and pointing in wild abandon. One way of calming them is to repeatedly, quickly and loudly bark, JESUS – TARD – JESUS. This seems to confuse them and makes loading them on the short bus a little less traumatizing.

Neither party has a candidate willing to tell people the truth. Neither party has a candidate that will simplify and make the tax system predictable. Business owners can't trust those in D.C. and can't make an investment decision with their unpredictable intervention and manipulation.

It would be great to see someone come on the campaign scene with a promise and plan to abolish all tax deductions, reductions, incentives and earned income credit which is welfare hidden in the tax system. Add two levels to the tax tables and everyone pay the designated rate without exception. Cap business taxes at 20% which is more than current actual revenue after congress manipulates taxes to show favor to certain influential sectors.

Too transparent? Congress can't sell their support? What would be wrong with a tax system where taxes could be filed on a post card?

End of year deficit projections:

o 2011=15 trillion

o 2016=30 trillion

o 2020=60 trillion

Which party is addressing the problem in a meaningful way? Neither a bleeding heart share the wealth tree hugging liberal nor a cut all spending pro life bible toting conservative is facing reality.

GDP growth of 5% or more with unemployment under 5% is necessary and can be done if congress had enough nerve to do what is needed.

Did Wiener show his wiener on a twitter message? Why does he suddenly object to spending federal money to investigate his account being hacked? He is one of the last big spenders that says the government should spend more to stimulate the economy.

Does anyone know what the Obama care waiver process is? Who is eligible? Who decides who will be granted a waiver? Thousands granted but how many have been denied? Harry Reid's state of Nevada was given a Waiver from participating plus two other states, why? Something has an odor about it.

Can you explain why so many Obama supporters are requesting and being granted waivers? Why the state of Nevada got a waiver? I wish I was on Ryan's payroll, all this free stuff to free loaders would come to a screeching halt. You may have to go to work.

chet123 said... finally ask a good question....and i will respond accordingly....Most democrats were against the recently new health care bill....the progressive wing of the Democrats felt that Obama wanted an health care public the govrnment could compete with private insurnce felt betrayed....felt Obama let insurance corporation back him down....your question is very legitimate......and it is a fair can hang him on that issue...because he really dont have 100% or 80% support with the democrats electoral on forcing the people to carry health insurance(i personal dont think the government should be forcing anyone to carry health insurance..violation of a person constitutional right...i hope the courts strike it down the way its written)...he may loose in the courts
