    Good toon, but I’d love to see one with Obama as Emperor Palpatine, though not everyone would get the reference…

    Dumb cartoon I hate to say. Completely irrelevant.
    Name something, one thing, that Obama directly worked with Congress on to try and get it passed? He did nothing with them on Obamacare other than on two occasions call Republicans to the White House to brow beat them only to get his “My way or the highway” attitude thrown back in his face by Congressmen far smarter and adept than he was at it.
    Sequester? Nada other than proclaiming he would not negotiate.
    Gun control: Left it to Biden.
    Immigration reform: Other than blather on about it not one proposal.
    What’s he done WITH Congress?

    The president leads. Not just here but globally. From the front not the rear. He generates consensus. He negotiates treaties. He brings all parties to the table. He represents all points of view not just his side. He finds a way to be inclusive not exclusive. He draws lines in the sand only if he means it. On this count sadly he has failed miserably. I expect to not always agree but to feel that he’s done the best for everyone not his own little corner.

    Just saying Congress obscures the fact that it’s the GOP in both houses that are dead horses or is that mammoths…

    HAHAHAHAHA! This is a set of Republicans who committed to killing ANYTHING Obama proposed, INCLUDING Republican plans like Romneycare, and you want to blame Obama?

    The GOP is the political version of Hoover dam.

    Funny cartoon. Well drawn and with a point of view.

    Might be time to try cooperation – if you know how.

    If you’ve seen the movies, you’d realize Cheney is not a valid comparison. He was just the scary guy in the background. Obama like Palpatine made congress (or senators in the movies) irrelevant to his will. Obama IS Palpatine.
    To quote Senator Amidala “So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause.”

    “He (Cheney) was just the scary guy in the background.” BIDEN scares the h**l out of me! ;)
