What today's cartoon lacks in subtlety, it makes up for in accuracy: this is exactly the way Hope n' Change is feeling these days.
We'd sort of hoped that absolute disaster would at least wait until Obama's second term started, but apparently we were over-optimistic. And trust us, that doesn't happen very often.
A growing sex scandal is threatening to topple our intelligence and military communities, leaving tasty vacancies for Obama appointees while throwing a smokescreen over the successful terrorist attacks in Benghazi. Painfully obvious voter fraud is going uninvestigated (how did Obama get 140% of the vote in some areas, and Romney no votes at all?). Employers are firing people or cutting back their hours to avoid the punishing effects of Obamacare.
A report (delayed until after the election) shows an unprecedented skyrocketing of the number of people receiving foodstamps. Recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy absolutely suck - and yet the media cares not a whit that Obama hits the golf course for the 105th time in his presidency rather than offer aid and comfort to those hardest hit.
And a new report - also withheld until after the election - reveals that Iran is much closer to having nuclear weapons than B. Hussein previously admitted (and which Joe Biden flatly denied in one of his hysterical laughing fits during his debate with Paul Ryan). Meanwhile, John "Heinz 57" Kerry is being considered to become our next Secretary of Defense, despite his history of accusing Vietnam veterans of being psychotic and sadistic murderers, baby rapers, and ear collectors.
At this point in the commentary, Hope n' Change usually likes to make a pithy and funny remark intended to inspire courage and optimism. And we fully intend to do that...on Friday.
Because today, all we're seeing is Hell and Handbaskets.
This picture doesn't really have anything to do with politics,
but we always thought that the evil living head in "Re-Animator"
looks like John Kerry and it makes the film more fun to watch!
