    Obviously this is a depiction of the teabaggers strangle hold on the government.

    That is obviously the captial and not the White House, as any fool can see. The right wing congress men have blocked any progress in the country by their unrepentant belligerence.
    The right wing tratiors declared the president, who was elected by the majority, to be the enemy as soon as he was elected, to the diservice of the country.

    Obvious to me that the toonist, and certain posters, do not understand our form of government, where the three branches are separate, distinct and EQUAL.

    Except this is obviously Uncle Sam’s leg that is shackled, not a specific person.
    WE ALL are uncle Sam

    Nobody wants to eliminate Congress. Just put some smarter people in charge of it.

    If congress acted, the recession would be over by now for EVERYONE, not just the 1%. But no, it’s going to be Obamacare! Benghazi! Birth Certificate! Obamacare! for the next three years, because the GOP is not equipped to actually govern.

    The founding fathers had a vision. Let’s try something different. Let’s not vest all the authority in one person who can with impunity write law that enslaves the people.

    So ‘lo and behold, after years of debate and careful write and re write, they produced a constitution that laid out the rules of conduct for government. Yes we need government to manage certain things. We need to be prepared for the Kim Jon-un’s of the world with a solid defense and the religious extremism and tyrannical dictators who would commit genocide with the offensive ability to stop them. Yes, government has the responsibility to protect the citizens, guard our borders and be able to field an armed force when needed.

    But every citizen has a say in how we do that. So we need to send representatives to voice the concerns of the citizens – thus the House of Representatives.

    And the STATES have rights as well. They should also have someone to voice the states concerns – and so we have the senate.

    How far have we come from this practical document?

    Is it time to rid ourselves of the fools in office?

    all of them.

    Certainly the founders would not recognize the government of today.

    But Arod is the epitome of what is wrong with us. Arod, didn’t your hero Obama declare the recession over in July of 2009?

    So what, you agree with republicans about the economy? Obama has done nothing to improve any demographic but has done reams of regulations to further suppress any interest in hiring. But you blame the party that has passed 150 pieces of legislation to try a stimulate growth all of them sitting on the desk of Harry Reid.

    I’m glad I’m old and on the way out. I have great sorry for my children and grandchildren.

    I’m in agreement with Bruce…glad I’m old and I feel sorry for my offspring!

    Arod ignored the 8 years of GOP President Reagan’s recovery from recession and his Economic policies that created an Economic Boom for Americans! Reagan had to correct the 4 years damage done by Democrat Carter and the Misery Index! Jobs created by the Reagan business friendly administration were not low salary, low hours to escape Obamacare costs to businesses, and Entrepreneurs expanded the Economic Pie for more Americans to achieve the American dream!

    And of course, Obama started the 2008 recession after Bush had a rosy economy and balanced budget and world peace?
    Funny how you guys misremember the good old Reagan years. Clinton who?

    @Kaffekup

    oh oh oh I’m wounded! You said but Bush did it too! How can I ever show my face again!

    No, Obama started with a country sinking into recession big time. One of the reasons he was elected don’cha know. His big promise of “hope” and “change”, his declarations that a 450 billion buck deficit was “bad” and – by golly – just downright “unpatriotic”, his vow that lobbyists are evil and none would be allowed any where near HIS administration and his laser like focus on jobs for the middle class. All things among the many wonderful items that set him above that evil oil midget Bush.

    5 years later. How’s it working for us now?

    Got any lobbyists in the Obama Administration?

    Anything changed on the hill?

    Deficit below that unpatriotic level of 450 Billion?

    Are there more jobs and more people working than at the beginning of his terms?

    After all, he single handedly brought the recession to an end in July of 2009 didn’t he?

    It’s time to get off the play ground, quit pointing fingers a people 5 years out of office and accept responsibility for your actions.
