This is a gift to political cartoonists, and they’ve taken advantage of Obama’s daft remark.
As best as I can recall, this is my first Glenn Foden cartoon, but it’s a good one.
I wrote the other day about the debate on whether Obama’s a socialist. I concluded that it’s best to describe him as a statist, corporatist, or cronyist, but Chip Bok adds another term that might be most appropriate.
And Eric Allie makes the very good point that Obama not only screws up the diagnosis, but also offers the wrong prescription.
Eric Allie is relatively new to me, but he’s on the right track as you can see from this cartoons about Obama’s counting skills.
P.S. If Obama actually wants to fix the economy, I suggest he watch this video tutorial so he can learn that the private sector is suffering because too many resources are being diverted to unproductive uses by the public sector.
