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.

Thanks for reminding us that your disdain for Bush started very early. You've shown your tue colors. Nobama has done more damage in 100 days than the previous 5 administrations put together. Hack.

Well said Dave!!

If a mainstream newspaper released a derogatory cartoon such this about Obama there would be such fervent accusations of hate and racism by the Left that A.C.O.R.N. , Huffington Post, and the ACLU would be organizing boycotts, marches, and protests ad nauseam.

Dave & J:

Neither one of you have any idea of what this cartoon referred to in the first place, do you?

Before you call Mr. Lowe a
"hack," or suggest that the
cartoon was simply "liberal bias," you might want to do a little research into the
topic upon which the cartoonist drew...because it's pretty clear you don't have a clue.
