Obama Gives Back our Hard Won Victories in Iraq


It’s true.

The people running this War are much smarter and more moral than Lyndon B. Johnson, who got his thrills and his “John Wayne Moments” by patching through to guys in the brush in Vietnam and talking about who knows what and all while he was giving hills back to the Commies.  (See Ramadi.)

The stalwarts currently running the White House. who favor Styrofoam Greek temples and suffer from uncontrollable inclinations to stop the glaciers from melting and panicking polar bears … don’t even know who John Wayne is.

In fact, I have often wished Obama would watch a bunch of John Wayne movies … over and over … so he might unconsciously emulate Duke’s way of walking.

I find his “cat walk” sissy gait embarrassing and offensive. It’s particularly irritating when he does it while exiting Air Force One. What must foreign heads of state think when he prances down the rolling stairway? And what about the Marine guard who has to endure Obama’s half hearted salute in conjunction with the prance?

Maybe it’s just me.

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
