What's Mallard raving about today?
Haw! Haw! Obama killed the economy!...How, exactly? I ain't see no asterisk on this one.Batshit's usually drunk at the wheel of this strip; today he's completely asleep. End result is the same, though.
Same great wingnut taste, now with half the effort!
- I'm confused, what could the president (any president), with no fiscal powers, have possibly done to 'fix' the economy.- Keep the bars open later maybe? That would get Brucie-Boy's devotion no doubt.
You know what would be funny?If the GOP blocks attempts to raise the debt ceiling, and continues to block attempts to raise taxes, the federal government will at some point have to decide what programs to shut down. There is a simple way to decide which programs.Our economy is limping partly because most of the "stimulus" was Republican-required tax breaks to people who don't need it, rather than "shovel ready" projects, but also because state and local governments are laying off workers which offsets increased hiring in the private sector. This is the deliberate plan of the Republican party.The president has full authority to shut down federal programs in those congressional districts whose Representatives refuse to raise taxes on the rich or even to cut the tax break on corporate jets.What would be more fair? They want a smaller government anyway!Let's close down the airports in Boehner's district; after all, Boehner wants to shrink the federal government - where else would be a good place to start?

The election of 2012 will soon be here and it cannot come soon enough. I believe most thinking voters have had enough of Obama's shovel ready bullshit and lies.
Poll after poll shows that most voters do indeed know who put the economy in the crapper and who's fighting tooth and nail to keep it there. And whichever Anonytroll-for-hire is running its mouth this time can face the reality that it's not the president.
Troll: "Rewinn does not have a clue or is in denial. He does not know why the economy is in the tank?"Let's assume we're all as ignorant as you claim. Here's your opportunity to educate us! Let's hear it, bright eyes!
(Econ 101 )During Obama's campaign he told us that he would tax 'big business' and those making over $250,000 per year. This is when businesses began to downsize, there was little hiring and no investment of money by businesses because they feared what Obama would do. This has not changed. Obama increased the national debt by over $3 trillion in just over 2 years.Obama tripled the deficit in one year with his failed stimulus planThe Obama deficit this year may reach $1.65 trillion. Barack Obama and the Democrats also added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.Remember who has had control of the House and Senate since 2006.Barney Frank with Fannie Mae started the housing crisis by forcing banks to give loans to folks whom they knew would never be able to repay them. Of course the housing market is now in the tank.**(Source: Office of Management and Budget)
Ha ha, "source".
Toots McGee...you doubt the deficit numbers I take it? Of course Obamaa had to spend us into the ditch because of Bush.
Anonymous imputes superpowers to Obama: the ability to violate the principal of causality in the space-time continuum!!!!Obama ii SO POWERFUL that even before he got his FIRST DELEGATE (...and Hillary Clinton was widely regarded as the front runner...) he frightened American business into stopping hiring thus leading to the economic collapse that doomed the McCain campaign and propelled Obama into office.I could waste time explaining how higher marginal tax rates on INCOME cause business owners to keep capital in their business (econ 102) rater than take profits as personal income, but why bother? Anonymous Coward didn't bother refuting any of MY points (about 'shovel-ready' vs. tax cuts and about states & local government hiring) so why should I bother refuting its?(I say "its" rather than "his" because "Anonymous Coward" lacks the ballz to identify itself. On the evidence, Anonymous Coward finds going through life with neither nutsack nor genetalia to be a personal tragedy and I urge us all to pray for the soul of Anonymous Coward's absent manhood.)
I don't want to play this game. If anony fails to see how pointless his "sourcing" is to presumably back up part of the crap in his post, then I say again, "ha ha".
As DaveyK pointed out, the most straightforward interpretation of this strip is the opposite of the one the author likely intended.For extra bonus accidental diametricism, the subtext to be read here is that laissez-faire economic policies don't work, and President Obama should have intervened somehow to make things better.
It would seem that ever since the judge told him he couldn't ask the local Boy Scout troops to spank him any more, Anonyrast has decided to come here for his corporal punishment instead.I spent the holiday on Cape Cod, going to the beach and playing mini-golf and going to cookouts. It would seem that the Rast spent it fapping and looking for irrelevant talking points in Freeperville. In other words, not a holiday for him at all. But then, there were probably children wherever he might have otherwise gone, so the ankle bracelet would have told the authorities if he had anyway.
