Salt Lake Tribune’s golden cartoonist, Pat Bagley, sums up so much of the difficulty we face in policy debates and discussions these days:
Especially “trickle-down” economics.
Former Sen. Alan Simpson told Charlie Rose that he’s grateful President Obama didn’t offer the Simpson-Bowles budget balancing plan, since Republicans would then have to oppose every part of it, reflexively, as part of their “hate Obama completely” policy.
Pat Bagley uncoded the formula, too.
The danger? The danger is Obama will propose something to save America, and the Republicans will oppose it in a knee-jerk fashion. Some say it’s happened already.
And all of a sudden, you find yourself naked, cold and wet, and stuck in a swamp. Can you console yourself that the flies are tasty?
Pat Bagley cartoon from the Salt Lake Tribune, May 2, 2012:
Pat Bagley, the future Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Salt Lake Tribune, can be so brilliant sometimes you can’t see him.
For example, what’s he talking about here? Mass murder in Norway? Debt ceiling? The Texas State Board of Education’s assault on evolution? The Texas Lege’s attack on education? Congress’s attacks on the poor and aged?
Pass the lithium: The cartoon applies to any of those issues, and all of them.
