    Obama’s version is a bit different:

    George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
    The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.
    ,
    His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.
    .
    The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator’s action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

    While there is certainly truth in this, I don’t follow what that has to do with this particular cartoon. Prescott Bush is not mentioned, and the reference to President Obama by the elephant is much more reminiscent of the opinion about Neville Chamberlain at the time.

    Rad-dish: How does Prescott Bush’s one shre of stock equal what you claim?

    It’s all Obama’s fault. I heard that on Fox ‘news’.

    Adolph was elected chancellor in ‘33. For more than 6 years, most Americans on the right saw him as Europe’s best defence against the spread of Communist tyranny.


    After Adolph allied with the Communists in ‘39, many Americans on the left figured he was really just a good Socialist who had to use harsh methods to move Germany to a Workers’ Paradise.


    (Of course, American attitudes about Adolph changed rather dramatically for the worse in the second week of December ’41. After that, almost all Americans on both left and right could finally agree about him.)

    @Rickapolis

    One can learn a lot about history from the comments here. It was Clinton and Obama who were responsible for 9/11/‘01, Bush, jr cannot be blamed since he wasn’t even president then. And they were also responsible for the invasion of Poland. And the sinking of the Maine. And the fact that the US was unprepared on 7 Dec ’41. Their list of heinous crimes deserving impeachment, conviction, and prosecution is long, and only our gridlocked political system protects the two villains from the punishment they deserve.

    irony, part 23: most of the pre-war republicans were isolationists, and opposed doing anything.

    You’re right. I think it’s terrible that Wilson started WWI and that FDR started WWII. It was all their fault.

    “….. Wilson was a democrat and got the U.S. into WWI. FDR another democrat when the US got involved in WWII. Truman a democrat when he got us involved in Korea. Johnson a democrat when we got involved in Viet Nam.

    My memory doesn’t go back as far as the first world war, but I remember where I was sitting when the principal came on the sound system and
    announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor. How on this green earth can you blame FDR for that? (this is the biggest flaw in your version of history.)

    As far as Korea and Viet Nam go, I disapproved of both those wars, but I hated the citizens of this country for not supported our soldiers.

    and trying to mix apples and oranges is always a fruitless task (yeah, intended).
