Really?

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 ...

PAWS FOR THOUGHT

Romney has been on both sides of practically every issue but there's one issue that Romney has been solid as a rock. And only one. If you can think of another please post it. The one policy Romney would go the mattresses for:

Tax cuts for the rich.

His budget calls for a massive tax cut for himself and fellow top 1% of the top 1%, offset by raising taxes on the working poor. Mitt takes home $40 million dollars a year and he doesn't work a day. How will giving him an extra $200,000 create more jobs? Will he hire a second guy to shine his shoes?

Come to think of it, I'm offended that Clay would portray Romney as a canine:

Dogs are more loyal than Mitt and poodles are smarter.

This marxist foolish president continues to be a failure and the stupid blind puppets like Clay Bennett still attack the Republicans. Clay Bennet continues to show his incompetence and lack of intellect by promoting this failure of a president. High unemployment, more people on welfare than any president ever, highest debt aproaching 16 trillion dollars, first president to cause our country to be down graded by Standard and Poors, illegal health care bill, apologizing to our enemies and many other failures. Clay Bennett is a fool and is not creative enough to make a cartoon about Obama's failures which is everthing he has done. Why does Bennett not make a cartoon of Obama thinking he has control over the Supreme Court. Obama the fool actually warned the Supreme Court, as if there is anything the idiot can do about what they decide. This is the second time this fool of a president has disrespected the Supreme Court. Obama should be tried, convicted for treason for his failure to hold up his sworn duty to defend the U.S. Constitution.

This is one that will bring out a chuckle from even the far right-wingers. Obama is going to have a hard time convincing the middle that Romney is out of touch when deep down the biggest difference between the two is the color of their skin.

mtjohn,

I agree. The communist do not even like this idiot these pathetic liberals made president as he is so far left of even their agenda. These kool aid drinking liberals never have anything good to say about their messiah obama. They lack the intellect to understand that complete government control is not in their best interest. They are sad and pathetic loosers and probably are so destitute and helpless they have to depend on the government for their survival. Another reason they are always preaching total government control of ever aspect of our lives is they lack the intelect to understand that we live in a world that is unfair so they support all this feel good legislation without any intelligent understanding of the unintended consequences of their failed policies. Notice how many of these unintellectual liberals post on here all day long. Their whole life is spent on spreading their destructive agenda to destroy those who are financially, physically, spiritually and intellectually healthier than them. They are disgusting and pathetic. They will pay when the next American civil war begins as a result of all their racism, hate speech, and race division.

Lao Tzu: Father of Taoism

Why are people starving? Because the rulers eat up the money in taxes. Therefore the people are starving.

Why are the people rebellious? Because the rulers interfere too much. Therefore they are rebellious.

Why do people think so little of death? Because the rulers demand too much of life. Therefore the people take life lightly.

Having to live on, one knows better than to value life too much.

Joneses - indeed, we live in a world that is unfair. But, we live in a country that, although it does not guarantee equal outcomes, is built on the principle of equal opportunity. Given the choice between a president who understands that our Constitution prescribes a government that protects equal opportunity for all and a president who defends equal opportunity for the wealthy to thrive at the expense of the disenfranchised, I will vote for the former. This year, the only candidate who is focused on equal opportunity for all is President Obama.

EaTn said: "Obama is going to have a hard time convincing the middle that Romney is out of touch when deep down the biggest difference between the two is the color of their skin."

You’re got to be kidding, EaTn. I see big differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney. For starters, Romney doesn’t seem to grasp the serious problems associated with the growing economic gap between rich and poor in the U.S. From his perspective, 99 percent of our population is just “envious” of the wealthiest 1 percent. Romney also appears to be completely oblivious to the serious healthcare crisis in the U.S. The status quo is OK by him. Then there is Mitt Romney’s “corporations are people too” mentality; his arrogant attitude in regard to women's issues; his advocacy of idiotic legislation like the Blunt Amendment and tax cuts for billionaires; No, there are huge differences between the two candidates.

This president does not care about anything but giving the government more control of our lives. Do you really think he cares about the welfare of others? Name one thing he has done the first two years of his presidency when he had the house and senate that helped the poor? Nothing. His 1 trillion dollar stimupus bill was a proven complete failure. The health care bill is illegal. Obama is pathetic and everytime he opens his mouth he lies and creates hatred. I hear you liberals piss an moan about Fox News. I have never seen a Fox News political story without both sides presenting their views. You liberals have proven you have much hatred for those who opose your view. How can you support this out of control spending? why do you think this much debt is good for America? How can you justify supporting a president that has failed at everything he has done? Obama is pathetic. I have to get to work now so I can support all the looters like chet in this country.

librul said...

The rethugs bitch and moan about the price of gas, trying to blame President Obama, but when Bush was president they were saying "the president has no control over the price of gas."

Can't have it both ways, boys.

And we have to assume you are too stupid to understand that it is oil commodities speculators looking years down the road who are aware that demand is going to far outstrip supply who are responsible for elevating the price of crude. Throw in the vagaries of refining capacity, China and other rapidly growing economies, and the various Middle East debacles and it becomes absurd to even try to blame pump prices on the president or call for rampant drilling as a solution. The mere fact that there is an industry push to engage in the wasteful and ubercostly extraction of oil residue from tar sands should be a prime indicator that the heyday of big oil is fading fast.

Good one Clay. Gotta wonder how short a leash the GOP will be able to keep Mitt on. Can't wait to see the southern conservatives rushing to embrace the Wall Street candidate who cares more for the monied elite than the working class. Oh well, perhaps our good southern conservatives can take comfort in supporting a former high ranking official of a church invented in the 1800's by a convicted con man. Right? The sheep are waiting to be led.

joneses said...

What I hear when you liberals say you would rather drink the Kool Aid is you would rather be manipulated, lied to and brainwashed by an idiot like Obama. What happened? Did you miss the flight with Jim Jones to George Town? The Republicans want people to work for a living and have pride in themselves where the Democrats want the people to depend on the government for their living. And we all know living off the government is living in poverty. So it is safe to say that the democrats want people to live in poverty so they can be manipulated and controlled. The proof is there are more people living off the government under Obama's "rule" than any president ever.

Joneses - in absolute terms, the President could do more to support the welfare of all citizens. However, the choice this fall will not be between President Obama a candidate how represents the absolute ideal. It will be between President Obama and one of the Republican candidates, most likely Mitt Romney. Do you really think Mitt Romney cares about the welfare of anyone other than those in his income bracket? Do you even think Mitt Romney understands the plight of citizens who are less well off than he? Given Bain Capital and Romney's efforts do denounce his work as Governor of Massachusetts, I don't think so.

And the hypocrisy continues when the leftists(ie. Drawboy and co.)who claim no one should be stereo-typed(translation:no one who has only their perspectives), drawing cartoons and conclusions stereo-typing others. No wonder people really do not believe anything from the left's perspective. Where does that leave someone who called this a home run? Oh gosh, I would be stereo-typing and I come from a different perspective than the DrawBoy and his like-minded ones. Oh well, there is plenty of hypocrisy from any perspective. It is just hard to stomach people who do stereo-type(leftists) but claim everyone else must not. That is as good as Al Gore making all global warming claims, telling us what to do and then doing the opposite himself. And a Light Bulb suddenly comes on for all of us.

I know this is off subject, but when has it become a CRIME to smoke a freaking cigarette. I was in the hospital and found out where the smoking area was located and just left my room and went to smoke one, they had just took the iv out. Well all hell broke loose, they even had security looking for me. Then a man from Uganda shows up to tell me about how bad smoking is and all these programs bla bla bla.

In Sebastian Junger's book "WAR" the lead platoon leader tells his men, if you don't smoke, now will be a good time to start. Another thing that surprised Sebastian is the drugs they hand out for sleeping and these men are on the front lines, but f... that who cares about the WAR, to f...... busy spending and police the cigarette smokers. A billion $$ war on smoking, how you going to make that tax MONEY UP.

If it is SOOOO F......Bad then outlaw it and all these stupid drugs that are killing people every day. I know more people who smoke than don't and most of them are young, so don't believe that lie, Smoking Is Down, its not.

You said, "The Republicans want people to work for a living and have pride in themselves where the Democrats want the people to depend on the government for their living."

You do a remarkably poor job of summarizing other peoples' point of view. You seem even worse at knowing what they are thinking. However, you do a lot of assigning.

Another strawman argument. Keep them coming. They may be convincing only to those who seek confirmation in what they already believe.

I finally agree with one of Bennett's cartoons. Yes, electing a "poodle" like Romney will result in an Obama win. Moderate Republicans never win. This is a replay of McCain. Big mistake.

As I have said in the past on this site, I'm a proud Conservative. I have to give Clay credit because he has in the past replied to my e-mails. In one of the e-mails he stated that he was a "Social Democrat." Again, I have to admire him for standing up for himself and his views. I have to respect that, but I totally disagree with him. Now, you followers of Clay, are also Social Democrats? Pure Socialists, Communists or don't have the nerve to admit anything?

BobMKE - if you want to put a political label on me, try something like an "Eisehower Republican". In today's political environment, I guess that makes me a radical independent who votes more frequently for Democrats than Republicans because, in my opinion, the Republican Party, under the influence of organizations like the American Enterprise Institute, Project for a New American Century, etc. has abandoned the ideal of an America that provides equal opportunity for all for an America that works well for the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the rest of us. The Democrats may not work very well on behalf of all citizens but, in my opinion, they have not yet abandoned the commitment to at least try.

BobMKE,

I don't have an easy label for myself. I'd like to think I'm a pragmatist. I think that there are some things that government can do better than the private sector and visa versa.

The closest thing I could say is that I'm a "Tragedy of the Commons Libertarian," meaning I greatly value personal liberty but not at the expense of all of us.

I think there are some liberal policies that I support but view them as necessary evils, to combat greater evils. And visa versa.

I'm not a fan of any one party. I'd love to eliminate them all and make people vote on issues rather than tote a party line.

I certainly don't always agree with Clay. I think it is amazing that some people can never find anything that they can agree with him on.

Tu,

Tyranny of the Majority? I guess it depends on the situation.

In some cases, as long as the majority does not interfere with essential liberties and a chance at equality.

Defining Gay Marriage as 1 man and 1 woman is not a Tyranny of the Majority that I can go along with.

Seatbelt laws, I'm with the Tyrantical Majority on that one.

Health Insurance mandates, unlawful presence wavers for illegal aliens, civilian trials for terrorists, attacks on states who want to protect their citizens, $5.00 gas, piling on debt without end, high food prices, fueling racial tensions, attacking businesses that don't support him, high unemployment, pissing on the Constitution. Yeah, boy, you Democrats got something really to be proud of. If you think OBOOB has it in the bag, you're full of it. Actually, you're worst nightmare might be if he does get reelected, then you'll see the uninhibited OBOOB show up, and all you nimrods who supported him will be held accountable.

Why aren't we hearing about the hammer wielding black teens who sent a white guy to life support at a hospital in Sanford, Florida? You can blame Al Sharpton Jesse Jackass and B. Hussein Obama for fueling that hate with their stupid, dumb ass, moronic, irresponsible statements following that incident. Suddenly they're mute! To think that Obama has compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr. is unbelievable. These two black teens, two pieces of debri, dumb as a box of crayons, didn't hear any "black leaders", at least the ones that get all the coverage, call for calm and to let all the facts come out. Did OBUTTMUNCH give a call to the family of the man who is on life support????? No, you know why, because he won't aknowledge it because he allowed that to happen. What a BAD, BAD, BAD guy Obama is. The Divider in chief.

For anyone who might be interested, here is what the President had to say at the Easter prayer breakfast.

Can someone please help me understand the insinuation that Barack Obama is a Muslim.

shifarobe,

Your comment at 5:32 is probably one of the weakest arguments I have ever witnessed on this thread.

Are you really trying to connect this to President Obama?

Exactly how could your President have prevented this?

You say he's dividing the country and this is a consequence of his divisiveness?

Obama has shed some light on many of the divides in the country..... You do understand that the light exposed the cracks.... it did not create them.

As far as your president being responsible for this robbery and attempted murder (possible murder).... Your accusations may hold sway in the court of conservative opinion..... but not with people who aren't blinded by an agenda.

Everything obastard has done is a failure. If he had any accomplishments these stupid ass liberals would surely be bragging about them.

Another Obastard lie is Obastard said that Obamacare was passed by an overwelming majority. 219-212 is not an overwelming majority!
