    Judicial appointments not approved by Congress, negates this ’toons premise.

    Not at the cost of a dictatorship, come on. It is the left that came up with communism, socialism and Nazism, all these have created dictators.

    I know a lot of people think Nazism is the right, but it is not, the Nazis controlled all economics in that country. When you have that power no telling what will happen. You can even compare it to this country today.

    President Obama stood up and inserted himself with the Martin/Zimmerman deal. This week three black kids shot a twenty two year old ball player for in their words they were bored and President Obama has remained silent.

    So the question becomes where is the racism?

    “This week three black kids shot a twenty two year old ball player for in their words they were bored and President Obama has remained silent.”

    Excellent point.

    And, expanding on that subject (and not to take away from your point), the NRA has also remained silent. Just as they did when the baby was shot in the stroller. Just as they did when the shooter went into the school in Atlanta. Just like they did when…..you get the point.

    Please spare me any responses about how they are all for gun safety. If they truly were, they’d be trying to help our society be safe from gun violence.

    What Varvel is “reporting” in this excellent cartoon,
    is the plotted and produced “change” away from the American Founders’ form of government, by and for the People. It is the Left’s Dream of gaining total control, as done by past dictators in history.
    -
    One recent example is the “elected” democratically “president” of Egypt who used every day in office to eliminate democracy and turn Egypt into the biggest Taliban on earth!
    -
    Chavez in Venzuela is another example. Even Hitler was originally “elected”……
    -
    The unwitting voters gave Obama the Community Organizer 8 years to do most of the “changing”….who knows what is planned for 2016…?

    Get Serious, Varvel. Did you flunk civics? Bills originate in the House of Representatives, or they’re supposed to. Remember all the jobs jobs jobs legislation that the RepubliCons promised up BEFORE they started drawing their 200K salaries, tapping into their golden health care plans? Hello? Who’s paying you to misinform the public?

    Here is a revealing story:
    29% of Republicans blame President Obama for the slow response to Hurricane Katrina despite the fact that it happened 3 years before he took office.
    28% blamed President Bush.
    44% didn’t know who to blame.

    The Republicans have stopped governing and left it to Obama to make all the decisions.

    Obviously – some of you don’t know the rules: Only Republicans can be referred to as “Acting like Hitler.” The professional posters here will beat you down when you cross that line…

    @wmconelly

    What about the jobs bills passed by the House Harry Reid won’t let on the floor of the Senate?

    " It is the left that came up with communism, socialism and Nazism, all these have created dictators."

    Come on! Trying to equate American political movements with Nazis or Communists is pretty stupid. Fascism is a mix of left & right wing ideas. Nazis believed the profit motive was good, but subjugated everything to realization of Germany’s “National Destiny”. The Nazis embraced right wing ideology like:

    Appeals to patriotism & “National Destiny”

    Turning labor unions into owner friendly groups

    Promoting an (ahem) aggressive foreign policy that derided multilateral policy

    Embracing & promoting “traditional” values & morals

    At the end of the day, Hitler’s only real concern was building his war machine. That’s not a liberal ideal.

    Obama has inherited & in some areas, expanded the executive powers that Bush claimed. Only a few conservatives were warning about the fact that Bush was consolidating too much authority.

    As far as the shooting in Oklahoma goes, have you any proof that the guy was shot because of his skin color? Did the police not arrest them immediately? What exactly do you think Obama needs to say about this tragedy?

    “What about the jobs bills passed by the House Harry Reid won’t let on the floor of the Senate?”

    You mean the “jobs bills” that require permits for the Keystone Pipeline before the State of Nebraska oks the route, the ones that mandate drug testing for anyone collecting unemployment, the ones that award broadband spectrum to Verizon at a huge discount, the ones that suspend environmental protections or the ones intended to break up unions?
