Political Cartoon Humor, How will Obama-nomics affect evolution?

I have been listening to everyone cut up the budget that has been presented with increases and cuts. It is interesting to see someone try to defend it. There are a couple of things that make it interesting to me. One, the numbers that are being reported state that there is an overall increase in spending. Setting aside the earmarks that were said would not be part of Obamas budget but have somehow found a home there from both parties, it is interesting to me that the president has said that many things have been cut back as if that is a good thing based on the total amount being larger than last year. (The rationalization is truly frightening)

Question: How do these people define fiscal responsibility? Anyone…..anyone…..Buller……Buller

The second thing is that I seem to remember a line by line look at the budget and using a scalpel rather than an axe being portrayed during the campaign. Did the scalpel get lost in the move or maybe it is just a scalpel that is as sharp as a butter knife. Not sure but it got me thinking of where this might all be heading so being in a cynical and sarcastic mood, I came up with this cartoon. Enjoy and have a great day all.
