Weiner Boy

I just find it kinda ironic that Mitt called Obama’s record and future plans “Obama-loney” and then recruits a guy who used to drive the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile to be his V.P. candidate.

Here’s the thing about Ryan’s plan:  It doesn’t stop the debt from growing.  It still spends.  It cuts a lot of entitlements and programs for the poor.  It gives huge tax breaks to the rich and actually raises taxes on those making $30,000 or less a year.  These guys who HATE, HATE, HATE welfare have put in $40 billion to go toward oil companies.

My editor killed this cartoon at first.  He said Ryan’s plan was a start.  Well if that’s all it takes to make you like a plan, then isn’t any plan a start?  I explained a few details to the chief and after saying the cartoon wasn’t “fair”, he relented.  Again, cartoons are not supposed to be fair.
