Cartoons: Obama over Libya

March 25, 2011 |  6:08 pm

Politicians often claim that an earful from all quarters translates to a job well done. If that's the case, cartoonists must regard operation liberate Libya as a true resume-builder for President Obama. Liberal Chris Britt put the "W" in our latest war. Self-proclaimed independent Nick Anderson denounced the prez for winging it. And right-winger Lisa Benson chided him for a left-wing bailout. But hey, across-the-drawing-board criticism is easy -- that's why none of us will ever get a Nobel Peace Prize.
