blame Obama 2

A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us. In his comic strip today, Lalo zeroed in on the dreaded GOP Blame Obama (aka Obama Derangement) Syndrome. You may have noticed that they blame him for:

  • their own filibustery dysfunction, including the government shutdown
  • for killing immigration reform
  • for the tragedy at Benghazi!!!! (with lots of !!!s)
  • for turning the IRS into his own personal attack dog with an Enemies List that includes only poor innocent conservative groups
  • for planning a Big Government Takeover using Big Evil Obamacare as the Big Evil Gateway
  • for George W. Bush's crashed economy
  • for massive-- massive, I tells ya!-- unemployment
  • for hating women and killing their babies... especially African American women's babies
  • for a "feckless" foreign policy that was clearly the cause of Putin's grab of Crimea
  • for Iraq's woes
  • for Syria's woes
  • for their own personal woes
  • for being so gay that he's anti-straight
  • for the appalling response to Hurricane Katrina
  • for a "skyrocketing" deficit
  • for being a socialist
  • for being anti-free market
  • for being anti-Israel
  • for being anti-American
  • for being so black that he's anti-white
  • for not being black enough
  • for being an anti-Christian Muslim terrorist who wants to take over the world with Al Qaeda
  • for coming for your guns!!!

Yes, President Obama is a commie pinko French gay Kenyan Marxist Muslim socialist fascist baby-killing, weak, all-powerful dictator.

I'm sure I've left out a few blames and labels, but that's plenty for now. The projection and hypocrisy are jaw-dropping and endless, even laughable in a really sad way. To recap the obvious, Republicans have made a cottage industry out of contradicting themselves and pointing their fingers at others.

Today’s La Cucaracha makes the point in three effective little panels:

Ruh roh! Chris Christie's brother bought property just before Christie pushed for big overhaul

Welcome to Christie World, courtesy of Steve Kornacki and NorthJersey.com. Two words come to mind. Ruh and roh:

Governor Christie’s brother, Todd Christie, and two business partners have bought and sold a handful of properties within walking distance of the PATH station in Harrison, slated for a $256 million renovation funded by the Port Authority and championed by the governor, records show. [...]

The quarter-billion station renovation came into focus this week when The Record reported that Port Authority Chairman David Samson had private ties to the land around the Harrison station. As chairman of the bi-state agency, Samson voted to approve the Harrison station overhaul, months after a client of his law firm proposed converting a nearby warehouse into luxury apartments.

Samson also faces questions about his role in addressing the George Washington Bridge lane closures that gridlocked Fort Lee in September. And his firm, Wolff & Samson, is connected to another development proposal in Hoboken that the mayor has said the Christie administration pressured her into backing.

Per the article, Chris Christie's younger sib has profited nicely from real estate deals, and what deals they were! One of his partners managed to haul in "tens of millions of dollars" in work from state agencies since Governor "I Know Nothing" took office in 2010. Together, they "began buying small residential lots in early 2011, about a year before the train station renovation was approved by the Port Authority."

chris christie schultz i know nothing

Again, Todd Christie and his buddies bought up the properties before the multi-million rehab was publicly approved. NJ.com adds:

Todd Christie and his partners then renovated and flipped the lots for almost triple their purchase price after the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey gave its OK to the project, the report said.

Here is the perfect coda, a recent "La Cucaracha" strip snarking about Governor "Heartbroken." A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us:

George Zimmerman destroyed iPad evidence, will not be charged with domestic violence

Awhile back, George Zimmerman got into a little "tiff" with his ex during which time he was taken into custody after an incident with a gun... again. Apparently, the gun was never found.

Looks like Georgie skated... again. This time, because he destroyed his estranged wife Shellie's iPad, the video she took with that iPad of that incident was unable to be retrieved. His violent actions damaged the evidence beyond repair, so he's free to toddle along on his merry way.

The Orlando Sentinel has the story. Here are the bare bones:

Lake Mary police on Thursday announced that they could not salvage video from an iPad George Zimmerman tore up during a dispute with his estranged wife and thus he will face no domestic violence charges. [...]

Police on Thursday released their final 30-page report on what happened. It says they do not have enough evidence to prosecute Zimmerman on a charge of domestic violence.

Shellie Zimmerman had video-recorded the altercation with her iPad, but George Zimmerman pried it open, tore it apart and threw it on the ground, something captured on a security camera at the house.

Police sent the parts to a computer expert with the U.S. Secret Service in Tulsa, Okla., hoping he'd be able to recover video, but the report released today makes clear that the damage was too extensive.

On the lighter side, a major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us. And in a previous comic strip, Lalo zeroed in on Trayvon Martin's killer, the very same Gun-Toting George. As you may recall, Zimmerman's Criminal History Includes Alleged Violence and Temper (Audio and New Documents).

Lalo takes it from there:

nowhere to go but up

A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us.

In his comic strip today, Lalo zeroed in on the inept, increasingly frustrating, irrational members of Congress ::coughTeaParty!cough:: who are so despised that they have nowhere to go but up. His point is buttressed by the latest poll numbers.

It would be novel if the people we elected would start representing all of us, not just those who put money in their pockets.

Speaking of Shellie Zimmerman, she went on the Today show:

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Shellie Zimmerman:

"I didn't see a gun, but I know my husband. I saw him in a stance and a look in his eyes that I've never seen before. His shirt was half-way unbuttoned and he was putting his hand in his shirt and saying, 'Please step closer, please step closer.' So I think that just logically I assumed he had a gun on him."

"This person that I'm married to and that I'm divorcing, I kind of realize now that I don't know him and I really don't know what he's capable of."

"After standing by him, he kind of left and I guess kind of went on a victory tour without me. I thought I was living a life with him and that we were going to kind of rebuild after all this, and he had other plans for me."

"I'm conflicted... Anyone would doubt that innocence... I have doubts. But I also believe the evidence."

"He did not profile Trayvon Martin."

La Cucaracha-- Louie Gohmert: "A burrito is just a taco in a burqa."

A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us.

In his comic strip today, Lalo zeroed in on the all too prevalent Republican ignorance and Islamophobic tendencies.

How’s that reachy-outy, makeovery, reinventiony thing workin’ for ya, Louie?

Yes, to Gohmert, Hispanics are really Muslims in disguise, and burritos should be placed on terrorist watch lists.

La Cucaracha: Conservatives oppose increasing U.S. education because "this reduces the number of GOP voters."

A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us.

In his comic strip today, Lalo zeroed in on the usual Republican obstructionism and reluctance to do what's right for this country, as opposed to what's right only for their party, their cronies, and their wallets.

Of course, as he points out, the dumbing down of America benefits them, and that's all that really matters... to them.

Here’s today’s La Cucaracha:

la cucaracha pre school, GOP voters

Oh snap.

"This reduces the number of GOP voters." Or as I like to call them, Fox viewers.
