Bush's first 100 days...eight years ago


Even cartoonists need a vacation now and then.

I thought that while I was away from the blog, it might be edifying to post a few cartoons from a parallel period in our history, specifically, the end of President Bush’s first one-hundred days eight years ago.

One can almost forget that this occurred during the brief period (eight months) between his inauguration and the 9/11 tragedy, which subsequently defined his tenure in the White House.

At this point, people were beginning to question Bush’s competence, and whether his administration actually stood for anything.

The bitterness of the 2000 election loss was still fresh in the minds of the losing side.

I wonder if Charlie Chan Lowe will show Obama the puppet the same kind of love. Somehow, I doubt it...

Republicans are sore losers, and remind me of bullies in the schoolyard.

Imagine how they would have reacted if Democrats treated Bush, in the same way they are treating Obama.

I guess they were smart(?), by their "You're with us, or against us" phrase, thus avoiding criticism of their poorly-designed policies.

Such sore losers...

Chan "High" Lowe is experiencing drug induced flahbacks. He is too buzzed to realize that Bush is no longer President.

Yo, Lowe..... keep it real dude! Real High!

The previous tenant was thrown out of the place indeed, but the mess he left is going smell for some time.

hey 100 days and I've quadrupled the mess I walked into. Or 1oo Days and they haven't fouind my birth ceriticate yet, or my Occidental Colleg transcripts, or Harvard scripts or any published work, or any experience to justify being President....
