The Weak in Review

Well, this has been a weird week for Hope n' Change Cartoons. We tried to go to the "Friday only" schedule, but then had to post on Wednesday or suffer from exploding head syndrome.  Then we also posted Thursday because it was Thanksgiving. And now, Friday has arrived with original material rather than Facebook leftovers (we've all got enough leftovers today, right?).

Is it just our imagination, or is the whole Benghazi conversation shifting only to which functionary changed the wording of Susan Rice's "election friendly" and untrue talking points...and shifting away from the big questions like: Why were Stevens's repeated requests for more security denied? Were troops told to stand down rather than come to the aid of the Ambassador? If Obama gave an order to assist Stevens, where is it and why wasn't it carried out? And finally, knowing that the murder of 4 Americans was a terrorist attack, why did Barack Hussein Obama go to the United Nations and say that a videotape was to blame, and the real cause of the violence was "those who slander the prophet of Islam?"

This story must not be allowed to die - even though the Obama Administration is working harder to kill it than they ever worked to kill Osama bin Laden.

Fur More Years

Bark Obama is too much fun to let go, and frankly we see no reason to believe that his inspiration will be less of a lying dog over the next four years.  So it seemed like a good idea to update the storyline and set the stage for more keester-sniffing, testicle-licking, flea-infested fun. Which, by the way, is pretty much the same promise Obama made to win re-election.

As long as we're already gritting our teeth, let's put them to good use today enjoying turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, steaming vegetables, pumpkin pie and all the rest of Thanksgiving's goodies!

We still have more to be thankful for than anyone else on Earth. Here's hoping that you, your families, and friends have a wonderful holiday!    -Stilton

Tim Marches On

Geithner, debt ceiling, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, fuck obama, obama jokes

Yes, yes, I know I said I wasn't going to post a cartoon today, and I'm not necessarily changing the publishing schedule. It's just that I'm finding it pretty darn hard to sit on my hands when there is astoundingly stupid jackassery going on in Washington.

Case in point, Timothy Geithner - a man who can't even figure out his personal taxes (using a computer and TurboTax) - has just declared that rather than raise the debt ceiling or (heaven forbid!) stick to the debt ceiling, America should just throw out the debt ceiling and borrow money with no limits whatsoever. Because if you never stop borrowing, you never have to worry about where the money comes from to pay off your loans! Right? RIGHT...?!

And who's going to tell Geithner that he's crazy? The Democrats have shown that they have so little interest in sticking to budgets that they don't even propose them anymore. And Barack Obama, Geithner, Pelosi, and the rest of the usual suspects have so little understanding (or affection for) our economy that they're demanding another $1.6 trillion in new taxes on job creators.

Hope n' Change was pretty hard on the president's economy during his first term, but in complete fairness we should admit that it's now starting to look pretty darn good compared to what we expect for his second term.
