Here are this week’s top 5 political cartoons. You guessed it. Osama and Obama top the charts…
Biden: Impeach President for Unauthorized Attack
Vice President Joe Biden has a very clear idea of what should happen to a president who orders U.S. military forces to launch an attack on a foreign country without congressional authorization: impeachment.
With some voices saying President Barack Obama should face impeachment for attacking Moammar Gadhafi’s forces in Libya, a videotape has surfaced from the 2007 campaign trail showing Biden threatening to impeach President George W. Bush if he attacked Iran without the approval of Congress.
“I have written an extensive legal memorandum with the help of a group of legal scholars who are sort of a stable of people, the best-known constitutional scholars in America, because for 17 years I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Biden said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on “Hardball.”
“I asked them to put together [for] me a draft, which I’m now literally riding between towns editing, that I want to make clear and submit to the United States Senate pointing out the president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran.
A Special Message from Citizens Against Government Waste
Dear ZZNR Reader:
You may have seen the powerful new TV ad “The Chinese Professor” that is viewing on networks like Fox News and major programs across the nation.
The Chinese Professor offers a chilling warning: “Great nations fail because they turn their backs on the principles that made them great.”
This harrowing ad takes place in Beijing in 2030 and provides a glimpse of the bleak future awaiting our country if we don’t act today.
America, thanks to Obama and his liberal friends in Washington, have been turning their back on our founding principles.
This incredible ad was created by Citizens Against Government Waste, the nation’s leading fiscal watchdog in Washington.
Like you, they are worried about Obama’s ballooning deficits, his tax-and-spend plans, his trillion dollar Obamacare program.
Spending money we don’t have, and borrowing from China to finance the spree, the Obama administration has hurled us down a path of self-destruction.
Like a loan-shark waiting in the wings, China lends willingly, knowing that when we are unable to pay our debts they will, essentially, own us.
The more indebted the U.S. becomes, the more powerful China grows!
We must change course, immediately!
Please watch this powerful TV ad — See It Here Now
We are on a terrifying path.
But it’s not too late.
The president and liberals in Washington may have abandoned the principles that have built the greatest nation in history, but we have not.
Please watch this ad.
Please share this ad with your friends and family.
And please donate to Citizens Against Government Waste so they can continue their national TV campaign showing this ad.
Join us in fighting back. Our future depends on it.

Watch the Chinese Professor Yourself:
Sometimes its important to know when to keep your mouth shut. Especially when you are in a damned if you do and damned if you don’t situation.
Here is an excerpt from a breaking story at USA Today:
The Egyptian foreign ministry appears to be rejecting President Obama’s call for an immediate transition from the government of President Hosni Mubarak — and says that such calls are inciting violence.
“What foreign parties are saying about ‘a period of transition beginning immediately’ in Egypt is rejected,” said foreign ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki, adding that such calls “inflame the internal situation in Egypt.” —- READ MORE
The situation is putting the Egyptian military in a position that they may have to force Mubarak out of office sooner rather than later. Most observers don’t see the military willing to fire on its own people. The situation is spinning out of control today.
The statement from the Egyptian Ministry coupled with the video below from AP today underscores the degree of extreme volatility and pressure that is now placed on the Mubarak. Expect this to come to a head on Friday the presumed deadline when El Baredi, the only serious contender, has insinuated that the current administration step down and presumably leave the country.
So Let It Be Written…. So Let It Be Done !
When desperation and panic takes hold of a President what does he do? He makes a grand appearance on Comedy Central, of course.
We have to ask ourselves to what lengths this President will go to prostitute the presidency in a desperate effort to win votes for his flawed agenda next week. Most Americans do not find the situation in Washington amusing whatsoever.
President Obama will make the fusion of politics and comedy official tonight by becoming the first sitting president to appear on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” just days before crucial midterm elections that could reshape his presidency.
Mr. Obama will sit down this afternoon with Jon Stewart, the comedian-turned-activist who hosts the show, in what White House officials concede is a blatant attempt to seek out young Democratic voters wherever they spend the most time.
“The President hasn’t been shy about going to the places where people are getting their information and trying to make his case,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Tuesday. “And I think that’s what he’ll do on the show.”
The unusual presidential interview will be taped at the Harman Center for the Arts in Washington, where Mr. Stewart has relocated his show in advance of the “Rally to Restore Sanity” he is leading on Saturday. The interview comes as literally hundreds of candidates and their allies begin the final push for votes ahead of what is widely expected to be a better day for Republicans than for Democrats next week.
But a fresh wave of polling in a few states is pointing to some improving news for some Democrats. The party’s candidates for Senate and governor in California appear to be holding onto leads over their Republican rivals and the candidates running for Senate in Pennsylvania are tied in the latest survey from that state.
We wonder why he stopped short of bringing the rest of his supporting cast of clowns with him, Joe, Nancy, Harry and what’s left of his former dysfunctional cabinet members. The ego on this man is amazing. What is really comical is that he does truly believe he can personally lecture,charm and entertain the nation into continuing the quasi-socialist insanity that he and his cast of clowns have embarked our nation on. He has never stopped campaigning. What’s also laughable is how he appears to take us all for mindless ignorant fools in the process… including the youth of this country which he believes he can control and manipulate with the help of Jon Stewart. Let’s not hear one more word about media bias… politics has now turned into a three ring circus comedy act. Sean Hanity said it correctly in 2008 “Journalism is Dead”… it died in the last presidential election. R.I.P.
This current administration has now simply devolved one more step and prostituted itself into a comedy act for an audience that has had quite enough of this circus act! A squirting bow tie anyone ??
