In all the excitement with the campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, gas prices, and the economy going to hell in a handbasket, it's easy to forget there are other things going on in the world that make our issues pale by comparison. It's also easy to forget that there is somebody still occupying the White House, trying to be relevant.

Thank God we dont live in a country in which the leaders are actually the ones controlling gas prices.

Canada and Europe and the rest of the world are also affected by higher demand for fuel than before. Naturally, prices rise. Its how free markets work.

If the President truly did have control of both time and space, I'm sure he would have done something about it.


It has been obvious that your in the tank for Obama.
It also has quite obvious that your Political leanings have been as a toady for the left.
PLEASE take a long vacation and rest your weary brow.


I so appreciate your perspective. Bush has done more damage to this country and as a world leader than anyone in modern history. Whoever follows him will have more damage control to deal with than anyone can handle.


Bush has turned out to be a less than ideal president, but to suggest he does anything in the US on par with Myanmars inaction is pure idiocy.


How can anyone NOT see the similarities between the Myanmar crisis and the US's post-Katrina response? They are glaring.


Looks like you conveniently overlooked the culpability of Mayor Nagin and Gov. Blanco in, "Letting their own people suffer like that". I wonder why? You also failed to take note of the Congressional report on Katrina called "A Failure of Initiative". I guess the report didn't fit the narrative of your cartoon.

"Congress issued a report on Hurricane Katrina called "A Failure of Initiative" showing poor performance at all levels of government -- local, state, and federal. However, the primary responsibility for emergency action is at the local and state level. The abysmal performance of New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin and Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco during Katrina is well documented".

Too bad BDS(Bush Derangement Syndrome) has clearly allowed the facts to get in the way of the truth. You certainly have a right to your opinion even if you are wrong and intellectually dishonest!
