    Wasn’t that bull labeled “The Affordable Health Care Act” last week? What’ll the label be next then, Mr. Murdoch?

    When the left doesn’t have an argument, they call the truth “hate”

    Bull by the horns.

    When the clown wore the mask at the rodeo, the announcer asked if anyone would like to see that guy trampled and the crowd roared approval.
    The bull is labeled Egypt, and like the image depicted, Mr. Obama seems to be standing around waiting. The positioning of the broom is suggestive but, nm.
    Egypt is a horrible situation for its people, the region, and the geopolitical world. And I fully support those mostly republican voices calling on a halt to all aid to Egypt. However, Mr. Holbert takes the role of the rodeo announcer and seems to ask us, Who wants to see this bull trample, Obama? Who wants to see Obama blamed for this disaster and any future harms that comes of it?
    Mr. Obama fails too often to take actions when needed and he has failed to do so again. That said, no words will resolve the issue, and the Saudis and other anti MB nations are sending money daily. And there are no actions we can take without further antagonizing allies in the region.
    There was never a way Mr. Obama could have ‘won’ in this issue, even had the conflict been resolved peacefully between the factions, but the only thing we can blame him for failing to do is based on the treaty and the consequences of a military coup. The aid should have stopped immiediately.
    The military and allies could have started a recall drive and judging by the anger people had for Morsi they might have won that. Now, there are no winners and those who call themselves winners do so with blood stained hands.
    The worst part of this is the many parallels in how neighbors are interacting in Egypt in comparison to those of us in the USA.
    There are daily cries from the media and talking heads that the President/Congress has gone too far and people need to take action. And there are many people who would be happy to see someone they dislike die if it means their influence dies with them. It wasn’t like that when I was younger. I fear it will continue to worsen as I get older.
    Sadly,
    but Respectfully,

    I have to say I think the rodeo clown incident has been overblown. I will agree with you that we seem to be pushing more and more towards violence as a means of resolving the political differences between the two ruling parties. Which, honestly I think is the main reason they both need to go.

    It was a Democratic President of the U.S. that brokered a peace agreement between Egypt and the PLO, to protect Israel. Our only concerns in reality today are NOT about Egyptians, but the impact on 1. the Suez Canal, and 2. Israel.


    The “horror” is now some 900 dead in Egypt, but little concern about the 300,000 in Iraq get the Republicans upset.


    And yes, the ’toon does more accurately reflect the real situation with the rodeo event going “over the top” with full approval of a less than civilized audience of “arch conservatives”.

    I think most of have noticed anything or nothing President Obama does will meet with total disapproval from the rwnj and tea party.

    @warjoski

    It was very much overblown. It was a free speech issue and equivalent to many parodies made of public officials by comedians from Fallon to SNL and beyond.
    The clown has been invited to Texas, but I don’t know what will happen to the announcer and other man who had to leave his position.
    Too many thin skins and thick skulls.
    Thank you for your reply.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    That comment doesn’t make any sense.
