WTF America? by TomPreston WTF America? by TomPreston
I know I promised not to do any more political cartoons for a while, but sometimes when you work on one thing other ideas present themselves.

I fully acknowledge that this is politically biased. I've never pretended I wasn't partial to one side over another, and I'm not going to stop now.

EDIT: "Obama didn't KILL Bin Laden!"
Perhaps choosing the word "got" would have been better? If you think I'm suggesting he was the one who physically took Bin Laden's life, then you're just being stupid. Obama (while he didn't start the program) is the one who ordered the military strike which resulted in Bin Laden's death. I summed it up to make a point, so please... stop arguing semantics.

EDIT: "Global Warming is FALSE!"
If you can't trust NASA, then who CAN you trust? [link]

EDIT: I don't know what's scarier... that people seem to be missing the point of the comic (which is being a rational person = weak while being insane = strong) or the number of conspiracy theories being spewed left and right.

EDIT: I don't feel like stressing this again, so I'm just gonna copy/paste a quote from a DA user who summed up my feelings pretty succinctly: "It's amusing that people are going OMG YOU'RE SO BIASED YOU NEED TO BE LESS BIASED. News flash, people: Not everything on the internet has to be rootless and unbiased. Especially not a political cartoon, which by the nature of its label pretty much demands a bias - otherwise it's just a cartoon with politicians in it."

Obama didn't kill bin laden. Soldiers did. Obama has put us in more deficit than all other presidents combined. SIGH. Siiiiiiigggggh. It's really all about choosing the lesser of two evils these days. Obama wasn't a good choice

the only reason obama is doing bad is because every change he tries to make is voted out by the opposing party

This made me laugh so hard.

Here are some things to read: Socialist, Marxist, manipulative genius following the orders given from above (ring ring ring.)

Seriously; you people need to smack yourselves till you're blue in the face and hopefully wake up. No, better yet, do nothing.

The majority find that option quite suiting.

If I could favourite this a thousand times I could.
I have tons f people in my area think of this.

Like they said that Obama shouldn't get credit for killing Bin Laden as he didn't do anything, which is stupid because he's the PRESIDENT. Going outside alone is dangerous, no modern president has done a mission like that without having soldiers do it for him.
In an related thing, they would also say that Bin Laden wasn't dangerous at all, and that he killed his son. In other words, Bin Laden was actually Bin Laden's son...

I'm just going to stop right now because I'm sure I'll argue a mile how stupid people are.

It may be biased but, boy is it pretty close to how I see republicans attack Obama. It's never about what they can bring to the table (probably because of the "refusing to budge from a position" part) but about how wrong the Obama administration is. 

Both sides do it to hilarious extremes, watching Fox News and MSNBC together is the greatest source of comedy imaginable.

I like how you came right out and acknowledged that this is biased.
