Today's Hope n' Change Cartoon was never supposed to happen. The gameplan was to shout our lungs out about the myriad policy failings of Barack Hussein Obama during his first term, see him take a merciless drubbing at the polls in 2012, then publish our last-ever Hope n' Change Cartoon last Monday...celebrating Obama's removal from the Whitehouse, and the return of Hope and Change to our nation.
So Hope n' Change is still wearily in the saddle and, in lieu of retirement, today we'd like to give ourselves the gift of tactless succintness in describing Barry's second Inaugural speech: it was a complete load of horseshit.
Gosh, that felt good!
Obama's speech was about many things: hate for Republicans, hate for American values, and hate for fiscal responsibility (he'll rein in the deficit as long as he doesn't have to make spending cuts, borrowing cuts, or touch Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security).
And especially hate of capitalism. In the words of the president's speechwriters, "We, the people, understand our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it." Horseshit.
Of a nation facing desperate unemployment (and no meeting of the president's jobs council in over a year) and a heroin-like addiction to entitlement programs, Barry said "These things do not sap our iniative. They strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great." Horseshit.
And the president, smoke still rising from his hand's contact with the Bible, also said he'd work for women's equality (albeit just here, where it's already law, and not in the countries of his stone-throwing pals in the Muslim Brotherhood), civil rights (does Barry even know who the hell Martin Luther King Jr was?!), immigration reform ("Free taco with every Democratic vote!"), and of course turning back Climate Change (perhaps by having the United Nations send the sun a strongly worded letter). Horseshit, horseshit, horseshit, horseshit.
As we look Forward (horseshit!) into the future, Hope n' Change will endeavor to return to our usual journalistic standards and avoid four-letter expletives no matter how apt.
But today, we're feeling a little saddle sore. It's been a long ride already, and the horizon ain't gettin' any closer.
