    sound of clapping hands … yep, one-note pony is the character they’ve chosen to play to a diminishing audience

    Good cartoon…but it would have worked better for me if the Republican elephant’s single note had been a single HUGE note…with an exclamation point after it.

    and the single HUGE note with an exclamation point after it would have been totally off-key, taken from an old and worn play book

    harleyquinnPro says:

    Is it not funny tho that something so simple as that one note from the old play book works? Tax cuts.

    Tax cuts. Trickle-down, voodoo economics. Never worked, never will. They are a big part of why we’re in this mess. You can’t fix a debt problem by decreasing revenue.

    No, it isn’t “one of those times” when the note is wrong! The only answer the Repubs have is “cut taxes on the rich!!” Oh, maybe one more: “never cooperate with the President unless he is a Republican – then accuse any who disagree of being traitors!”

    Tell something Harley

    Where did you see the word ‘evil rich’ in motive’s comment? I don’t see it. Where is it?

    It’s gotta be there, coz that’s how he lost, according to your post.

    Which brings up another point, Teddy Roosevelt called them ‘The Wealthy Criminal Class’ Was HE a loser?

    Oh,and one more thing for all the conservatives here.

    We have HAD these tax cuts you keep touting for the last eight years. If they’re such a cure all panacea, the economy should be booming right now!

    Is it?

    I don’t see where MM said “evil rich”, HQ. You’re imagining things again.

    The note that the Republicans have is what caused the mess we’re in now.

    I think motive is on the money with this one.

    Obama is able to think about and express really complex ideas so he has a rich, full symphony in his overture. Pity the Republicans are not able to express complex ideas and solutions.

    This toon also reflects the simplistic thinking of the right while staring into the face of a huge and incredibly complex problem.

    What teleprompters?

    Oh, and by the way, government grows fast and large when a conservative is in charge. It is the DEMOCRATS that shrink government.

    Tell me, in the last two decades, which president CREATED bureaucracy? (Hint: George W. Bush and his DHS.)

    Keep it simple, barry! It’s too fancy (i.e., too smart) for some of us here!

    Since the end of WWII, every democratic President has left the national debt either less than or the same as he found it as a % of GOP. In that some period, every Republican President except Nixon has left the debt higher when he left office. In the case of Ford, Reagan and the two Bushes, the increases were enormous.

    Again we see Repbulican knee jerk reactions to Dem spending while they completely disregard the atrocious and wasteful spending of their own party when it was in power.

    No Harley…it’s not BS.

    It’s a FACT

    FACT: Taxes on the rich were cut in the first years of the Bush administration, and have remained that way ever since.

    FACT: Our economy is in the tank

    There…you wanted two simple notes, you got ‘em,
