    As long as things are bad, you’ll always have a job, Ted.

    Wow, this from Rall. Even the far left is beginning to recognize that there is a problem, Houston.

    What far left?

    Hm? Has Libertarian1 seriously never noticed Rall (or other leftists) criticizing Obama before?

    This is a criticism of Obama? Obama tanked the economy? Obama has consistently blocked stimulus legislation? Right! Oh, and he needed a teleprompter to totally devastate the entire republican caucaus on live TV, didn’t he?

    Some people must smoke some strange stuff.

    The stimulus did not work? Things would have been a lot worse without the stimulus. Ask the businesses where all those people working on our roads are spending their paychecks. When our economy got wrecked, it really got wrecked. As long as our corporate leaders keep sending jobs off-shore, we won’t recover and no matter how many jobs the stimulus packages creates, the people will still lose and the tops 2% will keep getting richer.

    This cartoon is incredibly, unconscionably LAME, and unworthy of Ted Rall. It reflects the mindless, insipid “thinking” of the Tea Party, not the biting reality-based satire we’ve come to expect. I am bitterly disappointed and depressed at having to wake up to something so vapid and shallow. I have the same bad taste in my mouth that I get from some of the right-wing cartoonists on this site or in the New York Post. Did Ted drink Kool Aid today instead of coffee?

    Don’t worry, he’ll be back in touch with us all after Election Day, 2011.

    Back in Reagan’s day this was called a market adjustment and it was ‘good.’ My how times have changed.

    The more things change the more they remain the same. It will always be so with the Money Party in charge. Vote third party, preferably Green.

    See Jade, blaming past administrations is de rigueur around here. Why were you so upset about a mention of Clinton?

    “The stimulus did not work.”

    • And that one’s old.

    “See Jade, blaming past administrations is de rigueur around here. Why were you so upset about a mention of Clinton?”

    • You claim I’m upset? You’re far reaching. No no, I’m merely pointing out inconsistencies with calling people out for blaming Bush when one goes even further back to take a leap over the previous administration. Far be it for _me_ to be upset, I have a bone to pick with Clinton over DOMA and DADT.

    See above what sirromsirrom wrote. That is why I started my comment with “wow”. Sirom was shocked to see this coming from an ultra liberal, as was I.

    Now you see why the Democratic candidates are running away as fast as possible. Obama’s first 20 months have been a disaster.

    As for the comic, it’s not a criticism of Obama necessarily, it’s a criticism of criticism. Consider the far-reaching attempts at calling him “liberal elite,” “Muslim,” and out of touch with the average American (particularly interesting when the guy was raised on food stamps).

    That being said, even if it was a criticism of Obama, what would be the big deal? That’s one thing I see different between the left and the right. The left will point out criticisms of their leaders, the right merely attacks others. You don’t see criticism of GOP on Fox News. They may claim someone isn’t “far right enough” (read: not a crazy religious zealot with absolutely no ability to compromise), but lefties will allow for a difference of opinion among their members. It’s possible to be pro-Life and a Democrat, for example. According to the righties, it’s not possible to be pro-Choice and a Republican.

    Sirrom, I think you missed the irony.
