    Keep it up Clark. Pretty soon you can tie it all back to Abraham Lincoln, after all he was a republican. You really need to try to get over this living in the past, it’s distracting from your ability to cope with the present…

    Let’s see if Obama Part 2 can man up and be a better negotiator with the now emasculated Republicans. Don’t hold your breath.

    I don’t think the Republican’s are emasculated, but it was a close call for them. I do think that it does mean that O needs to become a better negotiator. Also, the people in Congress need to stop saying “Yes, boss” to the party big wigs and start voting for the benefit of their constituencies and the general public.

    Well, they saw that they can’t win a lot of contested seats, so they’ll have to tone down the extremism and obstructionism from the past two years.

    Most of the ‘mess’ Obama has inherited from Obama comes from his failure to yell at Pelosi when she was arrogantly telling republicans they lost, sit down and shut up. It comes from his failure to daily reach out to Republicans before 2010. It comes from the failure of Obama and the Democrat party to forget how important the 2010 election, and the ability of the winning parties, to redraw voting districts in their states. Obama failed to take one of those ten letters he says he reads from Americans each night, and finding the ones who really need help, invite them to the white house and help them meet and talk to their legislators. Obama failed to tell the American people, I’m trying to help you, but your legislators, D and R, are too busy raising money and fighting for turf to do the job you sent them to do.
    I hope he does better over the next four years.

    There are a lot of poor people out there and lots of war victims. I’m glad that at least ONE of the cartoonists here doesn’t seem to be shilling for either side, but highlighting these facts.
    Doing it in the wake of Obama’s pyrrhic victory has impact.

    Clark" WHEN are you going to stop blaming Bush? If you ever wondered what a second term of J. Carter would have been, you’re about to find out.

    Negotiate about what? There is no common ground.

    How could Obama compromise with people who started just hours after he was elected in 08 to try to make him a one term President?
    It didn’t work BTW. So Mitch McConnel wasted 4 years of our lives and his.

    I wasn’t thinking so much along those lines, Kylie, as I was thinking of the continuous party (block?) voting by the political parties. In my lifetime it was not uncommon for party members to “cross the aisle” to vote on a bill that they believed would benefit their constituency or the country. Now, it seems that either party leaders are loyal only to the party and not the country and give the members of their party an “or else” to toe the their line or the bills being presented by the party leaders are deemed so onerous by the loyal opposition as to be completely unacceptable.If either of the aforementioned is true, we, the electorate lose. I lean toward the former because the parties’ machinery keeps running people that
    seem to believe only in the party and not the people.

    Rethuglicans, goppers? Trickle down/Voo-Doo economics? Such a mature statement! You would do better to focus on intelligent solutions than just spew the drivel laced with political talking points and immature insults. C Downs delusional???? We often disagree in principal, but the man is very sane, lucid and well spoken, contrary to the moronic statements you make…

    Morty, “dystopian!” Great word. Political cartoons are often not funny. In this case he is alluding to more people on SSI disability, structural unemployment, stagflation, food stamp and housing aid recipients at historical highs. You may not agree but that’s what he’s illustrating.
