Comic Strip Of The Day Goes Golfing


cjones08252014

Comic Strip Of The Day used this cartoon today to talk about the misinformation that right keeps spreading about Obama’s vacations.  You know, that he takes a lot of vacations, though W. took more and they were and still are silent about that.

Nancy Reagan once said the president doesn’t take vacations, he only changes his scenery.  You can’t really complain about the expense of a presidential vacation.  Presidents pay for their own vacations.  The staff will be paid anyway.  There is expense of staff lodging and travel and for Air Force One, but it’s not like that plane is always in a hangar.

Mike, the blogger at CSOTD, mentions that cartoonists should read the comments where their cartoons are posted.  I scan them.  I don’t read them all as they tend to turn into flame wars.  I’ll read some at the Free Lance-Star site, Gocomics and Daily Kos and various newspaper clients of mine that post my cartoons.  I don’t read them to change my work or outlook.  I just like to see how people are responding, even the critics.  I especially enjoy the comments left by people who don’t like my cartoons but comment on them every day.

Anyway, thanks again CSOTD.  I kinda had a feeling you would use this cartoon today.
