The Presidential Painsuit (Video)

Posted on Sep 4, 2014

By Mark Fiore

President Obama's been taking a lot of heat for not dropping everything and dealing with the crises all over the world immediately in a fashion that right-wing pundits can get behind. That's why Mark Fiore has the perfect product for him this week in his new animation, "The Presidential Painsuit." Learn about the inspiration behind this contraption below and watch as Obama finally suffers enough to get "maximum policy support."

If only Obama golfed less, the United States would surely be able to fix things up in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and any other trouble spot in the world. As ISIS was continuing their evil awfulness, people were talking about how Obama golfs too much and wears a suit that isn’t serious enough. Ugh.

True, his “we don’t have a strategy yet” line was a terrible and feeble thing to say, but let’s focus on U.S. foreign policy, not how Obama is a slacker because he golfs or wears a tan suit. Isn’t it entertaining how right-wingers who freaked out about a community organizer who earned his stripes on the streets of Chicago are now up in arms because he golfs too much?

There are plenty of serious policy questions and fairly impossible situations simmering around the globe. If the president golfs or wears a tan suit or eats arugula, does that mean he’s not serious about his job? Conversely, if he’s in constant pain and suffering day in and day out, he’ll take his job more seriously and do a better job, right? Enjoy the cartoon, and check out the links behind the cartoon.
