Very funny and that just about sums up Obamas plan.

He's been doing that CPR every day since he was inaugurated and inherited an Uncle Sam that was flat on his back like that. FDR had to do the same thing.

Sacks forgot to put in a group of Teapublicans behind Obama pulling him away from his efforts. Would have been more accurate that way.

Good one Sack. Yes, if we don't do anything (Obama) the US economy will remain on its back for 4 more years.

Now, we need a second image of Romney and Ryan standing around Uncle Sam's corpse, saying to each other, "Guess those vouchers only went so far."

Yeah, sure, Teapublicans "pulling him away from his efforts". What efforts are you referring to? His efforts to bankrupt us by spending more in 3.5 years than the last 10 presidents combined? Get a grip on reality, he added trillions more to the debt while whining about Bush. Hey, any president knows going in that he's going to have to deal with all things left by his predecessor so if he doesn't want the job, then don't take it and then whine about it while making things worse. Dem crybabies.

Sack gives the President too much credit. The cartoon should depict him applying a tourniquet around the neck of Uncle Sam. His policies continue to have a stranglehold on any meaningful recovery.

"His policies continue to have a stranglehold on any meaningful recovery." That is also called keeping inflation in check while turning a recession.

"Sacks forgot to put in a group of Teapublicans behind Obama pulling him away from his efforts. Would have been more accurate that way...." Yeah right, two years of full control by the dem's and your trying to find any excuse possible for Obamas lack of any financial plan.....pooolease. It doesn't have to be like this.

"Yeah right, two years of full control by the dem's and your trying to find any excuse possible for Obamas lack of any financial plan." - - - For the first two years of President Obama's administration, he tried to work with Republicans. It got him nowhere. Once he realized Republicans hated him so much they were not going to play, it was too late. 2010 brought in the "do-nothing but obstruct" Teapublicans and here we are. His mistake was to try to work with Republicans. You cannot work with people who hate you. They are only out to "get" you and the Republicans are proving it at the expense of this great country.
