Los Angeles Times political cartoonist and commentator David Horsey illustrated the above cartoon following Tuesday’s re-election of President Obama.
“The people have spoken. President Obama has won a chance to move beyond the stunted progress of his first term and, perhaps, become a historic president,” Horsey wrote on Wednesday. “On the losing side, the Republican Party remains shut out of the White House and has blown a chance to take over the U.S. Senate, largely because it catered to the narrow concerns of tea party zealots and social conservatives who imagined themselves as the only authentic Americans but who are, in fact, way out of step with most of the people in this country.”
This is where I bow out before the comments section of this post turns into back-and-forth political bickering. Save it for 2016.
