timothy, liberals and conservatives alike should not resort to racism or hate. we should be better than that
April 20th, 20111:39 pm
Hi Mike! No Question, just wanted to say I love your cartoons! They give me a great laugh during my day!
I agree totally AJ. Thanks
hi Mike, i find your cartoons to often be right on target. you do have a quirky sense of humor and no one can please everyone all of the time. come to think of it: who wants to? continue doing what you do and we will continue viewing it–even those who have cancelled their physical subscribtions to the paper because of writers like you, but… still apparently read you for free online. anyway, a lot of times i copy your stuff with your name and post it on my fb page. you roq!
April 20th, 20111:40 pm
thanks timothy. you’re a good man.
April 20th, 20111:41 pm
@ @Native Atlanta…you missed my point….posters slam the AJC because of Cynthia Tucker and Mike yet ignore equal time provided to Kyle and Jim. I agree… Bob Barr hardly represents the right as he is all over the place with his views.
Just curious- how do you think Pres Obama is doing as a leader? I know that he inherited a mess on several fronts, I just don’t see him as a leader of men (and women) who shoots straight and makes the tough calls.
You are pretty dialed into politics. How about you?
April 20th, 20111:42 pm
carla roqs, thanks for the comment. i hope that even those that may not agree with me, will check me out occasionally
April 20th, 20111:43 pm
Yes, you are a talented cartoonist. I do however, find your liberal bias as nauseating as I find our President. With the current state of our Country and daily incompetence out of the Oval office, you never lay the blame where it should be. You might want to try some objectivity.
April 20th, 20111:44 pm
Just want to say that I really enjoy your cartoons no matter who the target is. All the best!
April 20th, 20111:45 pm
aj, good question. i think obama has inherited a hell of a mess and it would be hard for anyone to clean it up in 2 years. i do wish he were more forceful in explaining what he’s doing. he’s a bit aloof and i think that hurts him.
Blah Blah Blah
Don do you have any non-Glen Beck solutions to our country’s woes or do you think blaming the current president is going to fix things?
April 20th, 20111:46 pm
Hey Mike: Charlie Sheen has begun questioning Obama’s birth certificate…maybe a Donald and Sheen cartoon?
Amen on your comment about Cynthia Tucker. If a white person said some of the things she does, Jesse J and Al S would be marching on the capitol. She, however, gets a free pass. She does more to keep racial divisions going than all the Klansmen in Georgia do (if there really are any).
April 20th, 20111:47 pm
@Timothy trust me, there are some still here
thanks don. just allow me to repeat again. AN EDITORIAL CARTOONIST’S JOB ISN’T TO BE OBJECTIVE. IT’S TO HAVE A POINT OF VIEW. that’s why i’m on the OPINION pages.
Mike – of all your cartoons, which one do have framed hanging in your house as the one you thought to yourself, “I wrote this one and it was great!”
April 20th, 20111:49 pm
I just love your toons. you’re just great
Did you see Michelle Bachmann on Good Morning America? She’s backing away from the birther nonsense. Think Donald Trump’s rise in the polls have something to do with that?
Love your cartoons, especially ones in remembrance (ie-Lewis Grizzard, UGA VII). The one for today was particularly good. I am so tired of trying to carry on conversations with people while they are busy texting, etc.
@timothy, please tell us specifically what cynthia has said that offends you.
April 20th, 20111:50 pm
Regarding Obama’s ledership, I have to agree that he inherited a real mess. However, he appears to me to be a demographically attractive and telegenic man who gives good speech, is too dialed into the polls, and fails when it comes to being decisive. There are a lot of examples of his paralysis, but they don’t get reported by many media sources and are generally ignored on editorial pages.
Thaanks for giving your take on the subject, though.
April 20th, 20111:51 pm
Mike your cartoon on Sept 12th 2001 made a huge impact in my classrooms when I taught
midori, you’re absolutely right. the birther crap only hurts republicans outside of the nutty republican base. even someone like bachmann recognizes this.
April 20th, 20111:52 pm
“ron, i did a critical cartoon of obama last week, on tuesday. when he makes mistakes i hit him”
You couldn’t have made our point any better Mike. That cartoon is the best you can come up with for this President? Every waking day you have material from this guy. You just choose not to rip him like you do to every GOP politician you can find.
April 20th, 20111:53 pm
@homemom, isn’t that annoying? i hate when i’m with someone and they’re continually looking down at their frigging phone
Keep up the good work! Love your toons and when I was a subscriber I loved seeing you almost every week in Newsweek!
I think Don is my brother-in-law.
April 20th, 20111:54 pm
don, give me some suggestions for things to hit obama about. and they can’t be made-up fox news stuff.
April 20th, 20111:55 pm
lol @Native Altantan
pdub, thank you.
Your thought on the reelection of President Obama?
No quotes from Cynthia Tucker off the top of my head, but she seems to have a perspective that whites are biased against blacks and that blacks are alwasys getting the short end of the stick. Sure, some whites are biased and some blacks do get screwed, but it happens far less than she thinks. Maybe I’m naive, but I think there are a lot of good and decent white folks who have nothing against blacks and would love to see them all succeed as americans.
As I said earlier, the constant stream of devisive talk from her simply antagonizes “good” whites and keeps the racial divide in place.
April 20th, 20111:57 pm
Hit President Obama on his sleeping vice!
getalife, i think obama has a good shot at reelection, but it’s things like gas prices, which are out of his control, that will impact his chances
April 20th, 20111:59 pm
rodney, good idea! maybe obama will fire him and he’ll be hired as an air traffic controller. hey, i may have come up with a cartoon! i owe you rodny! got to go folks! thank you to all of you! this was fun!
Are cartoonist like op-ed coumnist in that they are syndicated and run in many papers or are you exclusive to ajc. Love your humor!
April 20th, 20112:00 pm
Thanks for your work and humor!
