Oughtn't that be one of the GOP oathbreakers who spread the lighter fluid and lit the match?
Could be.
This.

Obama's main issue is not being a stronger president. He isn't evil or devious or neglectful so much as ineffective.

Our GOP has collectively gone insane, OTOH, which is causing no end of problems.
I believe Nero played the lyre - and was quite good at it.
What is going on here is that there is still a VERY large number of VERY racist people here. The GOP are going to unprecedented levels of insanity to make Obama's presidency as much of a failure as possible. I don't think any of this is Obama's fault, other than the fact that he has the nerve to be black.

He is actually a very intelligent man with very sound policies.
I agree absolutely. From this distance I thought he was doing very nicely. I just thought the cartoon was interesting.
I think he is doing a fairly good job considering the hostile work environment he is in.
I wanted to like Barack Obama when he ran for president. I wanted to be one of the history-makers who voted in America's first African American president. Two thirds of the way through the first chapter of The Audacity of Hope, I put it down in disgust at the race-hustling wrapped in soaring phrases. I have seen nothing in the intervening six years to change my mind. But what do I know? I'm just a typical white person, like his grandmother.

[Edited to change race-baiting, which is the wrong term, to race-hustling, which is more accurate. "White folks' greed runs a world in need," indeed. *Snort*]

I wondered how Americans would respond to this cartoon.
it strikes me as another chapter in the president's chronicle, aptly titled by "the onion" after the election: "BLACK MAN GIVEN WORST JOB IN AMERICA". and never can do enough with that situation to avoid mockery, after all.
Well, the artist is a known fool and as others have pointed out, the larger issues are that the Republican party has lost its mind and Obama's biggest problem is his weakness. I can't help but think Lyndon Johnson would have known how to deal with this GOP.
