    Stupid never stops, maybe Putin should pound a shoe to make himself scarier for the “Cold War”, or just throw one at someone? Remember, it was “W” who saw Putin’s soul, like looking in a mirror, and thinking Afghanistan, and Iraq. Boy did we ever have to go for a reach to establish OUR right to run Afghanistan and Iraq as U.S. “provinces”.

    Yes, but Georgia State does not have a decent sports team.

    I agree. Why is it that people can’t realize that NOTHING that Bush did has any consequences that lasted past January 2009? It’s like they’re HISTORIANs or something. They’ll just never learn.

    I’m with you, though. And I’m sure we’ll both agree that, as of January 2017, nothing that Obama has done (or not done) will matter at all to the future.

    His sphere of influence is getting larger though.

    gushed Love the little details like the backward R.

    The sound produced by the “R” in our alphabet is represented by the following symbol in Cyrillic : “P”
    The “Я” has no real equivalent in our alphabet but is pronounced “ya”.

    So, no, Lester screwed up the “little details”.

    I do not disagree with your statements, although I believe you are ignoring some aspects of the Bush presidency, especially regarding the false economy he created by keeping all war costs off the books. If you are keeping cooked books, many times the financial system collapses, as witnessed in 2008.

    However, my main point is still valid. Many people seem to believe that any negative results of Bush policies are no longer to be blamed on him, merely because he moved out of the White House.

    No doubt that Mr. Obama failed us all by not even attempting to do what he promised. And no argument. I sincerely wish it weren’t so, but if wishes were horses…

    Nope, you’re right: I screwed up. There are sloppy inconsistencies. You deserve and should expect a level of competence that is clearly missing from this effort. Maybe try my comic strip instead. 100% politics-free:

    Thank you for the information and link. I stand corrected.

    @Mike Lester

    defended, Lester is a cartoonist, not a high level political transcriber.

    Au contraire, Lester is an Editorial cartoonist, which is where art & journalism meet.
    His interpretation of world events is why we are here on this site. We, or at least I do, enjoy the manner in which editorial cartoonists can summarise an opinion of an event into a single picture, or a few frames. This ability is not something all of us have and it is an ability I admire. While I do not have that ability, I can still agree or disagree with the cartoonist, criticise it positively or negatively so long as the criticism has merit. In this case it was a mild critique on mere details and not the essence or message of the cartoon.

    @Mike Lester Thank you for your reply and graciously accepting criticism; it is not often we get a cartoonist replying and in a positive manner. Despite often not agreeing with your viewpoints, I shall hold your response in good stead.
    Cheers, omQ.

    When I chime in it’s usually a conversation killer but since this has run it’s course let me say sincerely how much I appreciate you collectively taking the time to weigh in on my cartoons. You’re all crazy or you wouldn’t be here. Thanks. ML
