    While they play their political games reality is going to crush us all.

    They don’t show that Obama’s line is the one that the GOP drew 4 years ago, and then retreated from.

    Where do you get this? The cartoon shows both Obama and the Republicans drawing lines in the sand and staring at each other while the tsunami named ‘Reality’ is rolling in on them from the side, a side neither is looking at.

    You should have added some debris (preferably Telephone Poles) to that wave Tom.
    Hurricane Sandy, The Economy, Gun Comtrol ect

    Here’s what’s really funny. Based on the metaphor in the sand, Obama is communicating with the GOP, while the GOP is only talking to themselves.

    “Here’s what’s really funny. Based on the metaphor in the sand, Obama is communicating with the GOP, while the GOP is only talking to themselves.”

    Nah, both notations are written that way because Democrats never read what they’ve written, so they can say later that they never said it, or were taken out of context, or whatever.

    As for Obama’s reading the GOP notation, he never reads anything that might disagree with him. And if others are talking, he just plugs his ears and hums real loud.

    " About time Americans wake up to the danger the tea baggers pose to our Secular Democracy, they’re even worse of a threat than the Taliban ever was"

    a) We’re not a democracy. If we were, no one would complain about the Electoral College every 4 years. Look up the word republic.

    b) Obama and his ilk are 100 times the threat of anyone else. When everyone’s dependent on the government for income, health care, housing, and everything else, the government can do what it wants. That’s Obama’s goal.

    A 4% increase in marginal tax rates for the 1% is a distraction that both sides are guilty of using.

    The most critical issues are the ones that neither the D’s or R’s are addressing-a military budget we can’t afford, non-reciprocal trade agreements with China, no Wall Streeters in jail, the revolving door between elected representatives and the businesses they regulate (or their lobbying firms), campaign financing, lower tax rates on capital gains than on earned income…..

    “everyone’s dependent on the government for income, health care, housing, and everything else . . .That’s Obama’s goal.”

    If you believe that, then you should put your money where your mouth is. Stand up for what you believe. Reject all Social Security. Refuse all Medicare. Pay all your retirement and medical bills out-of-pocket.

    Too many Cons in the Democratic party too. Way too many. That includes the President too.

    Yes he is because he is the other wolf, the one in sheep’s skin that is more dangerous. The Plutocrats are as smart as they are wicked. Give us two “choices” their choices. the wolf and the hidden wolf.

    However people want jobs not hand outs. And in this hidden Depression the jobs are scarce and poorly paying.
