    Wow. It’s not working. You Cartoonists are going to have a tough nut in Obama. Cheers.

    Not with Rahm Emmanuel as Chief of Staff.

    Barry better watch his back, because ol’ Rahmmy was involved in the Lewinsky affair.

    Rahm Emanuel?!? What the f**k?

    Maybe it’s like LBJ’s “inside-the-tent=pissing-out tactic?

    I think that when watching a cartoon, people expect it to flow in a more narrative way. This cartoon just cuts to new scenes which are just animated versions of the panels in a cartoon. When you start to get connected to a scenario, it ends and cuts to a new one.

    If you cannot get this somewhat unconventional format to work for people, adapting a more traditional narrative approach will get them, but it will lose something.

    Better sound, more sound and less Kubric-pauses are helping alot!!! Please keep it up.

    Sorry, but it just doesn’t work for me, neither did the Sarah Palin one. You’re still one of my fave cartoonists though…

    I thought it was amusing, though the voiceovers are pure amateur.

    Nonsense. The voice work is amazing! You should do that professionally.

    Im sorry Ted, I do like your comics much better your cartoons. They are funny yes – but you have to keep in mind that Ive been a fan of yours since I was in High School( since 1999 unfortunately that hasn’t translated into $$$ on your products all that much, sorry Im just cheap and I have the internet).

    not that familiar with your cartoons yet (print or animated) but i thought this was funny. i especially like the scene with the american licking the t.v. screen. i think you should make obama more svelt, afterall when time allows, he opts for at least a 90 minute workout.
