Conservative Cartoonist Says Obama Lies

Michael Ramirez

Move over Joe Wilson. Conservative ink slinger Michael Ramirez, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for Investor’s Business Daily (View Ramirez’s cartoons here), called the president a liar while speaking to the Capistrano Valley Republican Women, Federated club at the Marbella Country Club in San Juan Capistrano, California.

According to Patch, Ramirez was talking about the President ridiculing the Republican’s three-step energy plan – “Step 1: drill. Step 2: drill. Step 3: drill.”

Ramirez said Obama has a three-step plan of his own: “Step 1: lie. Step 2: lie. Step 3: lie.”

Ramirez also said he likes Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney and his track record at Bain Capital, and said, “He’s created more jobs at Bain Capital than Barack Obama has in four years with the entire federal government behind him.”

Here’s a short video of Ramirez presenting some of his cartoons:
