Shame on the president who for 8 months continues the disasterous polices of the previous administrations and does everything to support the corporate welfare at the expense of our own! Just look at healthcare, military, church/state separation (or lack thereof), rendition, torture, opaqueness in gov’t, need I go on?

Obama is for change, just the change that has been going on since 1980 to bring down the republic in order to build of a fascist state. Now there is change you can believe in.

Economy on the brink of disaster, Two wars, Greed and corruption on Wall Street, Unemployment at epidemic levels, The housing market collapsing all brought to you by the Religious right and the Republicans.
Our newly elected President has not solved the problems it took the Republicans eight years to create…...shame on him !!!!!!

I would have replaced the gum with quicksand and had him saying “just one more step” would have been a better visual. Tar would also have worked sticking to his shoe. All without changing the fundamental design of the cartoon.

First the gum then it is in a quagmire then it is the nukes and then we leave. Easy if you have no morality or care of cause and effect. More Afghans will die than the foreigners armed and uninvited. [No visas either.]
