    Ramirez hits a new level of idiocy. Nice drawing, though. If Obama wins (I’m not predicting, so it’s a conditional) there’s going to be an interesting fight inside the Republican party. This should have been a pretty easy election for the Republicans, but they seem to have decided to run a completely inconsistent bozo instead of an ideologically demented bozo. They didn’t even consider the possibility of an intelligent principled conservative. I can easily see the ideologically demented wing of the party, which is not small, saying “if only we had run a total wing-nut, we would have won.” Fun ahead.

    The red ink is mostly because the GOP insisted on prolonging the un-paid-for Bush tax cuts, or they’d let the economy die. Even their pretend umbrage that defense will get cuts under their sequester idea is false — they could easily have avoided it by letting taxes go up, even a tiny amount, to get a deal. The GOP has only one idea, and it’s MORE RED INK.

    There you go again, blame it all on the Republicans. Obama can’t even get his own party to pass his budgets. They had two years of TOTAL control of the congress and the presidency and they didn’t rescind the tax cuts. Face it, both parties overspend, grow the size of government and are in the tank for the K street lobbyists. Wake up. We need fundamental change beyond just two parties. We need to completely change the environment in Washington.

    That is where leadership comes in and if it is the Republican fault so much why have no Democrats voted for Obama budget?

    Sorry, I see nothing funny about Ramirez’ level of stupidity. Playing to the ignorant, like Mitt, is not good for America.

    Great comic, Ramirez. The Democrats had more control of Congress than anytime back to WW II, and couldn’t change. Why, the national debt climbed over 50% in 4 years, and continues to the tune of $4B / day. Economy remains drowning in gov. red ink — and we don’t want the Pres’ to continue on his failed path.

    “Forward” is into the brink. “Forward, the Light Brigade!”

    You probably have a few examples in mind?

    Some would say Huntsman — I didn’t follow him that closely, since I wasn’t going to vote in a Republican primary, and it was clear he wasn’t going to win, but I wouldn’t rule him out. My old senator, Mac Mathias, was a Republican, but these days I don’t think there would be a place for him in the party. I had a government professor way back when who would have qualified. There are a few Straussians out there who aren’t nuts. I don’t know about Colin Powell — he’s smart enough, and I suppose he’s conservative in some regards — but I don’t think he could get the Republican nomination anyway. Others?

    How about the republicans get a young minority guy who absolutely no executive experience, promises everything to everybody and is in way over his head? Oh yeah, that only appeals to simpletons in the Dumbacratic party.
