Ken: Yep, that's our guy!Posted by: Jerry at October 11, 2009 6:14 PM
No, he's just helping, carder. Without Obama, he'd be nothing more than a scorched afterthought on any REAL U.S. President's agenda.Posted by: xalisae at October 11, 2009 7:22 PM
xalisae.... Yep. Obama is the "enabler" of such lunatics as A-Jad and Kim-is-ILL. By cowtowing to them, he empowers them to take reckless actions that will lead to the outbreak of war. As long as he is perceived as a weak president, they will grow bolder and bolder.Posted by: Doyle Chadwick at October 12, 2009 6:55 AM
Ken, you make me laugh (and often!).
I never thought about this until I saw the cartoon but yes, "Late night with Letterman" takes on a whole new meaning now.

Neville Chamberlain kowtowed to Hitler, trying to maintain "peace" through appeasement. Hitler privately referred to Chamberlain as a "worm", while all the while making nice to Chamberlain and "agreeing" to no more war.
This pretty much sums up how tyrants and dictators view "peacemakers" and those who want to "talk", a lesson in history that is being too quickly forgotten.
Small wonder the Castro brothers, the North Koreans, and the Iranians are giving Obama the finger.Posted by: Mary at October 12, 2009 9:15 AM
Trick or Trick: Costumed as a NYT Editor/Reporter
Publishing 'All the news that fits'....our progressive/liberal world view.

Well I have to give the folks at the NYT credit.
They actually got it, right once in row.
They published a fairly balanced piece about people who are opposed to child killing and the victims they represent.
In the late 80's the omsbudsmen for the LA Times actually did a thorough job of analyzing how all the media covered the abortion issue.
No surprise to us pro-lifers. All the news media, print, radio, tv gave short shrift to the pro-life view point. They gave more coverage, printed or broadcast it more prominently and consistently adopted the lexicon of the 'Dead Babies R Us' crowd.
The event that precipatated the omsbudsmens research was the almost NON-coverage of the March for Life by all the major news outlets that year in Washington D.C.
The L.A. Times got some many requests for the omsbudsmen's findings that the printed in his report in a booklet and distributed it any who requested it. I have a copy some where.
Any body who reads that report and still pretends that our news media is unbiased is incapable of understanding the data and/or dishonest.
The abortion debate was just one of the more glaring examples of the abandonment of journalistic integrity.

Mary has it right. Obama's "strength through weakness" gambit has been tried before and failed miserably. The only thing weakness does is embolden the enemy to view us with contempt and makes them try all the harder to do whatever it takes to neutralize or even conquer us.
Ken: THAT is a scary costume!Posted by: Jerry at October 12, 2009 5:29 PM
