I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the cartoon by Robert Ariail in the New Year’s Day Advocate.

If ever a picture did convey a thousand words this cartoon certainly does. Showing President Obama totally oblivious to the real threat to the nations and peoples of the civilized world posed by Islamic terrorists while proclaiming a nonexistent danger is the real problem with just one perfect political cartoon is perfection.

Whatever Obama’s motives are we will probably never really know, but it is obvious that he just can’t see the forest for the trees or, even worse, does and will do nothing about the real problem.
