"Conservatives turn any good news from Obama into bad news"

Share

conservatives blame Obama 2

David Horsey is one of my favorite political cartoonists. One very good reason why he is, is how he nails conservatives for how inane and needlessly destructive they are:

david horsey Conservatives turn any good news from Obama into bad news

Here are snippets from an accompanying article from the Los Angeles Times written by David Horsey his very own self:

There seems to be no good news from the White House that cannot be reinterpreted as bad by conservatives. This anti-Obama negativity among Republican politicians and right-wing media is so predictable and reflexive that it has become comical.

Comical, says he. Or to put it another way:

not funny hahaha no

This Obama-can-do-no-right contrarianism has attained a new comedic level following the announcement that one of the suspected leaders of the attack on the American Consulate and CIA station in Benghazi, Libya, has been captured by U.S. Delta Force soldiers and FBI agents. Rather than cheering the news, reaction on the right has been anything but celebratory. [...]

It has long been obvious that conservatives are unwilling to give Obama a shred of credit for anything good that happens on his watch... [W]ith their frantic rush to find something bad to say about Khattala’s capture, Republicans have gone far beyond serious skepticism and have attained a state of perfect silliness.

Or to put it another way:

dear gop sick of your s--- smaller

"It's only illegal when 'illegal immigrants' break the law": Deadbeat cattle rancher militia

Share

illegal-immigrants

A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he occasionally generously shares his work with us. In his comic strip today, Lalo zeroed in on "deadbeat cattle rancher militias" who "hate illegal immigrants."

Or to put it another way, Cliven Bundy and His Merry Band O' Bigots.

David Horsey nailed it in the Los Angeles Times:

Bundy hops on his horse and parades around carrying the flag of the government he says he doesn’t believe in. He boasts that he is just like one of the founding fathers. He apparently has not figured out that most of his countrymen are starting to see him as a deadbeat who, for 20 years, has fed his cattle for free on land that doesn’t belong to him — land that, in law and in fact, belongs to the people of the United States.

Scofflaws like Bundy and his supporters justify their law-breaking by claiming they don't believe in the U.S. government (as they sponge off of it and flag-wave), but if "illegal immigrants" try to make it here, pay taxes, and fight our wars, all bets are off.

Take it away, Lalo:

la cucaracha illegal immigrants
