I love Ramirez's cartoons. It's a treat to see them about once a week when that liberal loser Benson takes a day off at the Republic.
I think Ramirez is making two points: One is that Obama is looking in the mirror and seeing himself and what he stands for as the reason for the demise of Detroit. I think it could also mean that the mirror is acting as a giant rear view mirror that reflects Detroit as he is skipping town. Either way you look at it, it is another indictment on his leadership and philosophy.
I'm embarrassed to say this but Obama made an appearance last week at one of my Alma Maters, the University of Central Missouri. I just watched a YouTube of him speaking in front of a group of young students who looked like they were about sixteen years of age. They were all wearing black and red University of Central Missouri tee shirts as they stood admiring Obama while he spoke. It kind of reminded me of the old photos of Hitler speaking in front of the uniformed kids of his day.
The next day I received an email from UCM which was no big deal because I receive them all the time when they are begging for contributions. However, this time it was all about what an honor it was to have Obama speak on campus and what a wonderful guy he is. I don't think there is a stopwatch that can measure the small amount of time it took me to inform them that I no longer wanted to be on their email list or associated in any way with the university.
There comes a time when a person has to make decisions like this. I enjoyed my time at UCM (known then as Central Missouri State College) in the late 1960's after I was discharged from the Air Force and decided I needed to get a college degree. We had an active group made up of ex-GI's called the Campus Veterans Association. We participated with the fraternities in inter-mural sports and other activities. In short, it was a fun time.
I know that it is a different world now and that liberalism has reared its ugly head at most universities. That doesn't mean I have to like it so I am spending my two cents worth to tell my Alma Mater where they can shove their support of Obama.
