Five Funny Cartoons About GOP Front-Runners

With all the eyes of the political world fixed on tonight’s GOP debate, here are five funny cartoons summing up the race so far.

With all the eyes of the political world fixed on tonight’s GOP debate, I thought it be fun to check out five funny cartoons summing up the race so far for the Republican front-runners.

This year’s Republican field is filled with some interesting and colorful characters, as Punchline’s Rob Tornoe notes…

Texas Governor Rick Perry comes into tonight’s debate as the GOP front-runner, but as Pat Bagley of the Salt Lake Tribune shows, he might have to tone down his “Texas swagger” if he hopes to win the nomination…

Michele Bachmann’s popularity has waned a bit since winning the Iowa caucus. But her comments about God and Hurricane Irene brought back questions about her intelligence. Luckily, as Bill Day notes, the storm didn’t cause her any permanent damage…

Mitt Romney remains the GOP candidate with the best chance of winning the nomination, although Nate Beeler of the Washington Examiner thinks that comparisons between ObamaCare and RomneyCare are going to continue to give him headaches…

Ron Paul is still hanging around in the polls as well, although as Dave Granlund points out, his super-libertarian views sometimes runt contrary to Republican values…

Ron paul KNOWS IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE STATE TO MAKE LAWS CONCERNING QUESTIONABLE CIVIL LIBERTIES. HE IS THE BEST MAN YOU’LL EVER FIND IN TERMS OF AMERICAN VALUES.

It is my understanding that the basic Bill of Rights, on which all our civil rights are founded, is a Federal document applying to all.  State’s rights was a doctrine that tried to maintain the right of “legal” discrimination, and now the Pauls want to go back to that era.  Let’s move forward, not backward.  Paul is right about ending wars, bringing troops home, drastically cutting defense, but he is wrong, and sometimes absurd, on everything else. In the debates, he said we could have gas for 10cents a gallon.  He’s losing it.

What we need is another deeply religious leader.

The current crop of candidates makes you miss George Bush.  

A few quotes to highlight why we need a Godly leader: 

“I am convinced that I am acting as the agent of our Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the Lord’s work.” Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), German politician and future German Chancellor, Mein Kampf, chap. 2, 1925

“I believe that God wants me to be president.”George W. Bush, American 43rd president, speech in Washington D.C., June 1, 2004

“This economy of ours is on a solid foundation.” George W. Bush, American 43rd president, January 4, 2008 (N.B.: the U.S. economy was about to enter into recession.).

Ah, the good old days!
