Question About 'Doonsbury' Cartoon:

Posted on 10/06/2012 6:04:21 PM PDT by Vinylly

Sorry, I don't subscribe to newspapers any longer so I was wondering about the Doonsbury cartoon. I remember during Reagan's terms in office, the cartoonist had street people sitting on manhole covers for heat. Since O'bummer has more homeless street people in US history and is the 'foodstamp' president, how has the cartoonist portrayed this ???

I’m not sure but I thought Doonesbury was no longer published.Don’t attack me but that’s something I thought I read somewhere.

That guy goes on vacation during Dem administrations.

One thing I remember though is that he did portray Clinton as a waffle back in the early 90s.

You are incorrect. Hard left Gary is still laboring away.
My boss used to date his wife (Jane Pauley) in high school.

The guy is a trust fund baby. His grandfather convinced a bunch of people with TB (and with money) that he could cure them if they went to his clinic up in Saranac Lakes. The Trudeau family has lived quite well since then but the grandson feels guilty that he doesn’t deserve this wonderful life so he became an Obama supporting liberal.

What could make him feel better than having a black president.

How is portraying Hussein? He used a feather for GWHB and a Stetson for GWB..

Long before Gary Trudeau was an Obama loving liberal he was a Nixon hating pro Viet Cong leftie who should have moved to Cuba decades ago except he’s a typical wealthy hypocrite who likes to bite the hand that feeds him.

Early Doonesbury was actually clever at times. Hasn’t been even that for decades.

I don’t think he dares to show any image of Hussein (he treats him like Mohammed). The rare times I pick up a free newspaper on the train, I see that Trudeau just shows the White House with conversation balloons emanating from it.

Trudeau is still pursuing degenerate approval.

“What could make him feel better than having a black president.”

This probably isn’t awfully original, but today it occurred to me that by electing Zero as the first “black” POTUS we accomplished much more than just removing any racist taint that may have clung to America.

Zero is not only black, at least by virtue of the “One drop of black blood” rule; but he is also an alien, a homo and a muslim. It seems to me that he’s pretty much a cure-all for numerous ethnic, societal and religious blotches that may have previously marred our national image.

So now that we’ve accomplished so much in 2008, we’re free to go to the polls in 2012 and vote him the bleep out of here! Aren’t we?

When Democrats are in power, there are no homeless people. But if there are homeless people, it’s only because the evil Republicans failed to pass Obama’s agenda. If they had gone along with Obama, there would be no homeless or hungry people. But if there were still homeless and hungry people even after passing Obama’s agenda, it would still be the fault of Republicans. Probably Bush would be behind all the problems. Bush and Cheney. Yeah...that’s the ticket.

Back in 1976 or 77, we had a difficult time getting the morning launch briefing done in the ready room of my last squadron. Prior to the start of the briefing all the pilots had been watching Jane Pauley on the ready room TV and were still drooling.

A liberal...Such a waste...

Anyway I’m sure Gary Trudeu is not going to say a damn thing about he incompetent fool in the White House.

On the other hand he’ll have more than enough fun to attack any Conservative President or Politician.Thats his history.

“The Vanishing liberal” was one of my favorites. Google it.

Isn’t a Doonesbury what you call a piece of dog @#$$ that is a hanger-on after a dog squats?

In those early Reagan years, it looked like the uninterrupted Communist conquests, by that time plowing inevitably up through Central America, could lead soon to an American last stand. In that era, I described Trudeau as “the only political satirist who will still have a job after the revolution.”

Lately, he’s inveighing against Romneyite “Gordon Gekko hair” and “giving rights to a fertilized egg”. His leftists still all have soft features and wise visages; his conservatives still all look like hitmen who just got through murdering their daughters.

Stopped getting the paper after McClatchy bought out the local paper - a few on the staff tried to balance things out but it took a hard left turn.

Speaking of cartoons, ALL of them except South Park, rag on conservatives and leave liberals alone. Even the ones on Fox, like Family Guy for example, they have at least one dig on conservatives in EVERY episode.
