    Hey! “W” spent 8 years either out to lunch or on vacation while Cheney did the real running of things. Ask our Iraq and Afghanistan casualties how well that worked.

    Hey, it worked with Reagan, was a disaster with W, this could be the tie-breaker, if the guy would just take as many vacations as they did.

    Institute a Homeopathic Branch of government. (No, it doesn’t mean that!)

    “Those who are honest in their support of our troops show it by supporting their mission.”

    And that mission is what exactly?

    I support the troops by demanding that they be removed from wars with no value, no end-point, and no possibility of resolution, and that this happen yesterday at the latest. I appreciate their sacrifice, and hate the fact that this sacrifice is wasted for no earthly reason.

    You were inside the White House and at the Crawford Ranch to observe?

    You are always free to create and syndicate your own political cartoon – and also free to read or not read any strip. Any other constructive comments to add?

    The left continues to miss the geopolitical issue with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan – isolating and keeping Iran in check. Yes, I have been in Afghanistan in the heart of Taliban territory packing a Glock-19 and M-4.

    And yet you’re trying to use our troops to support “rightist” talking points — that if you don’t support the mission you’re somehow being disloyal to the troops. That’s nonsense. More, that’s dangerous right-wing nonsense. It’s possible to support the troops without approving of their mission. In fact, with Dubya’s wars, it’s not only possible, it’s necessary.

    P.S.: Does anyone think the President is ever really “on vacation”? He’s never without access to the military and is constantly updated on world situations. Dopes like Payne (excellent name!) forget that Dubya spent far more time than Obama on vaykay.

    Gore Bane: my son is one of those disabled retired folks from "W"’s wars, and I know a lot more. The PENTAGON is still screwing them over, the “old hats” who’ve been around forever, but the VA IS trying to help, but blocked in thousands of cases by the military “command”.

    Thousands with PTSD have the military saying it is “personality disorder”, while even military psychiatrists have said it’s PTSD!! Broken and crushed bones, amputations, the military is even trying to say even those aren’t “combat related” so they can screw folks out of rightful payments for retirement and VA benefits.

    As a life member of DAV myself, I fully support our TROOPS, but when their “mission” was put together by lying, profiteering scum like Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, et al, I do NOT support the “mission”. Just as my time in Viet Nam taught me we were there on a lie, supported by Republicans and Democrats, but a lie none the less.

    I’m getting a little tired, no, a lot tired, of chickenhawks defending “W” while pointing to our support NOT involving our troops, or a single injury or death in supporting our allies to change some governments in North Africa., Meanwhile, blaming four deaths in Benghazi, that were the fault of the ambassador himself actually, on Obama?? Hundreds of thousands of dead, but a mere four in an intelligence screwup is more important?????

    Thank you for your response. And thank you for your service. I am not unmindful of your stated objective. I believe, however, that if we have satellites which can look into your house from hundreds of miles above the earth, we can watch Iran without having our troops be shot. And, as I’ve said before, you can’t kill an idea with a weapon; you usually strengthen it against you. You are certainly welcome to disagree; that’s what makes this such a great country.

    At this point in his presidency, Obama has taken 96 vacation days, compared to 349 by Bush. The President who had taken the fewest vacation days at this point in his Presidency was Clinton, but he knew how to have fun while staying at the White House.
